Weekend Movie Guide: Will There Be a Hex on Toy Story?

It isn't like we needed a Toy Story 3, but there's no doubt it will be awesome. Pixar's perfect string of massive commercial and critical hits continues with seemingly no end in sight. Barring the last minute addition of a full-frontal nude scene from Megan Fox, expect Jonah Hex to sink quickly to the bottom of the box-office charts. Who exactly is interested in seeing this movie? It still astonishes me how deeply the influence of religious weirdos runs in our society. In 8: The Mormon Proposition we see how a small group of devout lunatics prevents gay Californians from equally participating in society. People who supported Prop 8 hate America.

Duplass + Reilly + Hill? That spells must-see movie to me. Sure, Cyrus looks a little affected, but Humpday convinced me that Duplass is a master at finding comedy in the most uncomfortable of situations. Somehow, Tilda Swinton has transformed herself from interesting character actor to dominating cinema presence. More succinctly, I'm seeing I Am Love because she's in it. Pilloried by some at Sundance for its unflinching violence against women, The Killer Inside Me slips into theaters quietly this weekend. If Casey Affleck brings even an iota of the creepy charisma he had in ...Jesse James...Robert Ford, it will be awesome.
