EOne to the Rescue!

Caution: Film Avalanche on this Tuesday October 26th!

The Tattooed Girl Whom Played with the Fire Dragon, Part Deux – I prefer the original Swedish title Flickan som lekte med elden, but as you can see, Bablefish's Swedish to English translation works pretty well too. Hottie hacker Lisbeth and journalist Mikael investigate a sex-trafficking ring. Lisbeth is accused of three murders necessitating the dawning of tight fetish clothes to excape and torch some Bimmers in. Mikael works to clear her name because he verkligen vill knulla henne, and really, who wouldn't? BTW If you're wondering, Pigen der Legede med Iilden is Norwegian for Flickan som lekte med elden.

Winter's Bone - "An unflinching Ozark Mountain girl hacks through dangerous social terrain as she hunts down her drug-dealing father while trying to keep her family intact." (IMDb.com). Hmmmm.... Sounds like Virginia.... West Virginia that is, not our own Virginia.... although she has a missing drug-dealing Dad too. Weird eh? It's actually set in Missouri(able).

Wow! Watched this tonight - Review will follow. What a stunner.

I Am Love – Tilda Swinton stars in this Italian festival darling from director Luca Guadagnino, whoever that is. Egbert Rogers had this to say about it.... "I Am Love is an amazing film. It is deep, rich, human. It is not about rich and poor, but about old and new. It is about the ancient war between tradition and feeling" ...Sounds like something Spock would say.

Top marks from all the arthouse critics here. Tilda learned Italian to play the role, but with a Russian accent. Now that's committment. Looking forward to this one.

You Don't Know Jack. Hoo—ahhhh! Al Pacino brings "Dr. Death" to life in this HBO Films presentation directed by Barry Levinson, whoever that is. It got decent reviews. Apparently, people's opinions split across the film based on their position on euthanasia. Really? Ya think?

As Kendall once said of Michael Moore's films - "The people that watch his films don't need to and the people that should, won't."

I'm guessing the same applies here.

Please Give - Kate (Catherine Keener) and Alex (Oliver Platt) are a couple living in New York City who specialize in vintage furniture - which they buy on the cheap at blah blah blah up at their trendy Manhattan blah blah blah. Kate and Alex have a teenage daughter, Abby (Sarah Steele) who has image problems and their apartment is starting to feel a bit small for the three of blah blah blah ...and Alex own the unit next door to them, and once the flat becomes vacant, they plan to knock out a wall and blah blah blah, Andra (Ann Morgan Guilbert), their tenant, is an elderly blah blah blah doesn't seem eager to go anywhere blah blah blah, and it's occurred to Kate ….oh, fuck it. I've forgotten the name of this title three times since it arrived at 2pm this afternoon. Girls will love it.

Sex and the City, Squared - Really? Was this necessary? Come on.... Surely we've been down this vapid, slack-jawed, chick-porn road enough times already? I Photoshopped Tom's face onto Kim Cattrall's, but she/he looks exactly the same. How strange is that?

Still, a pretty decent week all in all.

The Tattooed Girl Whom Played with the Fire Dragon, Part Deux looks awesome. But then again so did the trailers for The Matrix, Part Deux...

As stonerphonic once said of Michael Moore's films - "The people who watch his films are unaware of his amazing cameo in Team America - World Police, and the rest of us know better..."

My "Sex & The City" review in one word - vapid.

go the root canal!!!
