The Lost Boys – The Castro
It’s easy to forget about the oiled up buff guy playing saxophone in this movie. Too easy. I think commenter 1991MileyCyrus really says it best though, “kimseycook yo bitch ass would never step up to me ho. i wish? you would. you calling me a bitch but I bet you’ll never step up to me. that’s a fact right there ho”
Burma VJ – The Red Vic (Sun/Mon)
Still Walking – The Roxie
I reviewed it so I feel like it belongs here. Let’s be honest though. None of you will see this movie. I could say, “It’s like Heat except instead of guns they shoot each other with graphic nudity” and still you wouldn’t see it. Would you? Info.
Coco Before Chanel – The Clay, Century Centre 9
Someday I’m going to be really wealthy and famous and charismatic – the white LeBron. That’s what they’ll call me. If I’m still white. And they’ll release a movie about me before I cured cancer with a glass-shattering one-handed dunk. It’ll be a rugged and slummy little flick where I ooze out as-yet-unactualized sex appeal. Then it’ll end and all the ladies will say, “Wow, I didn’t realize he was so hot back when he was poor and homeless.” Website.
Passing Strange – Embarcadero
There’s a great line from Major Payne where Damon Wayons is talking to a kid and says, “Don’t you ever read any of those stories about little people who do big things? Little Red Riding Hood. The Three Little Pigs. The Little Rascals. Spike Lee.”
“The movie tells the semi-autobiographical story of a young black man who leaves behind his middle-class, church-ruled upbringing in mid-1970s Los Angeles to travel to Europe in search of his artistic and personal identity, or what he calls ‘the real.'”
What? Spike Lee is keeping it real? Seriously though, supposed to be good. Info.
Inglourious Basterds – Lumiere
The Invention of Lying – AMC Metreon, AMC Van Ness
Every quirky safe comedy is just a reworking of Groundhog Day. This one stars Ricky Gervais. Website.
