The summer blockbluster season is starting awfully early this year as Watchmen hits theaters. By most accounts, it's a faithful adaptation of Alan Moore's seminal graphic novel. The question is, "Does it have an audience beyond the faithful?" I, for one, am excited to see it. The Fanning family has officially replaced the infamous Culkens as little Elle Fanning stars in Phoebe in Wonderland. Am I alone in thinking pushing your kid into Hollywood constitutes child abuse? Everlasting Moments is the exact opposite of Watchmen: a Swedish film taking place at the turn of the century. Talk about counter-programming! Shuttle is just the kind of low-budget indie thriller that deserves a larger audience than it will ultimately get. Give it a shot.
