The Book of Eli — AMC Metreon, Van Ness, Sundance Kabuki
Gary Oldman? Yes. Denzel? Sure. Shotguns and rocket launchers? Oh if you insist. Mila Kunis? Hah, good one…
Katie Ann and I are seeing this tonight, then we’re off to the caged death match to decide who has to write the review. Loser will be announced tomorrow but I’ve got like 70 pounds on her.
The Lovely Bones — AMC Metreon, Van Ness, Sundance Kabuki
Heart-wrenching bestselling drama I read in boarding school adapted by Peter Jackson starring Mark Wahlberg. Too much is wrong with this picture.
The Box — The Red Vic
This inventively-titled Richard Kelly-directed (Donnie Darko) movie gets the second run treatment at The Red Vic. Katie was not a fan and can we blame her? No, we can blame Cameron Diaz.
MINE — The Roxie
“This gripping, character-driven story follows New Orleans residents as they attempt the daunting task of trying to reunite with their pets who have been adopted by families all over the country, and chronicles the custody battles that arise when two families love the same pet.”
Do we not remember our Jewish history? Cleave them in twain!
The White Ribbon — Embarcadero Center
More than the early developmental stages of Nazism. Hah, as if that somehow wasn’t enough. Appropriate candy for this film: milk duds. For they will spoil your teeth and sore your jaw. Reviewed.
