The FighterEverywhere
Christian Bale looks serious and stuff, unless he cracks a smile to be snarky, paired with Mark Wahlberg (shirtless) about some boxer and his handler … but it’s by David O. Russell! Who is really cool and takes a lot of risks.

How Do You KnowEverywhere
James L. Brooks is a director who could handle being more tightly edited, but I applaud him for his strange sense of pace and quick humor. I don’t even know what this movie’s about, but I know I’m gonna love it. Paul Rudd and Owen Wilson in a triangle with professional softball player Reese Witherspoon! Also, Jack Nicholson playing a dad – a dad! He’s finally over the age of 35, I guess!

Tron LegacyCastro, Everywhere
Tron was one of my first purchased DVDs back in 1999. I fell asleep while watching it once, then sold it to Amoeba a couple of years ago. But young CGI ed Jeff Bridges, and a score by Daft Punk – which I’ve been listening to for a couple of weeks already – I’m sold.

All Good ThingsBridge
Andrew Jalecki, known for the creepy great documentary Capturing the Friedmans, delves into directing actors about a true-ish unsolved mystery story about a rich boy (Ryan Gosling), and poor girl (Kristen Dunst), an overbearing father (Frank Langella) and a disappearance. Gosling goes on the lam – in drag! Insert wolf whistle here!

Howl – with a slide show by Eric Drooker – Red Vic (Friday)
That James Franco film with David Straitharn & Jon Hamm, with a slideshow beforehand by artist Eric Drooker, who worked with Ginsberg himself. Eric Drooker, author of the great graphic novels Flood and Blooshot, slideshows are fun and legendary – go for this if not just for the screening.
