Do you remember the days when you looked forward to the new Steve Martin movie? Is anyone anywhere looking forward to The Pink Panther 2? Speaking of bad movies, Push is proof that you shouldn't try to do effects-driven films on a tight budget. I'm just not that into He's Just Not That Into You. Fanboys was once a good movie before being raped by its distributor. Coraline looks amazingly good and amazingly creepy.

If you're thinking of going to see the martial arts-fu flick Chocolate, check out our LAist review first by Farley Elliott. Same goes for The Oscar-Nominated Short Films of 2009, which our very own and brilliant Shelbey Howard Davis covered earlier this week. I agree that Presto and Toyland are the brightest stars of a mostly excellent group. And then there's Absurdistan. I have nothing clever to say about that. Good title, though.
