There's already been a ton of Inglourious Basterds material on LAist this weekend, so I'll only say, "Check it out. It's a helluva ride." My One and Only looks like an intriguing film. Based in part on the life of George Hamilton, it tells the story of a determined woman looking for a wealthy man to provide a nice life for her and her sons. It's been awhile since there's been a film about The Troubles, but Five Minutes of Heaven is a welcome addition to the canon. Liam Neeson stars as a man who, as a child, murdered the brother of another man (a fantastic James Nesbitt). The film tells a story of forgiveness as both try to reconcile the past.

I hope I'm wrong about Post Grad because I like Alexis Bledel, Jane Lynch and Michael Keaton, but my word does it look bad. In fact, it's challenging for worst-reviewed film of the year on Rotten Tomatoes. Ouch. Not sure why (maybe it's the poster) but Casi Divas is giving me a strong Mexican Mamma Mia! vibe. Why would anyone pay to see X Games 3D: The Movie when you can see all this stuff on ESPN for free. Oh, right! It's in 3D! But you know what? 3D usually blows. Shorts should have stuck with its original title, The Adventures of the Wishing Rock. It still probably would have sucked, but at least it wouldn't have sounded so damn generic!
