Indy 4...what can I say...101 million dollars this weekend, 126 million for it's opening five days...was anything else expected? The final three films made under a million dollars...Please, if the Visitor is around your area, go check it out...

Here are the noteable DVD releases for this Tuesday, the 27th.

-Rambo...skip it...
-Cassandra's Dream...The most recent Woody Allen picture, and, as was said during my review here, is totally worth your time. It's a crime drama involving two brothers and their attempt to help their troubled uncle. It's a solid film, and one that should be rented by you this tuesday...
-Grace is Gone...newest film from John Cusack, and tells the story of a father who lost his wife in the Iraq war, and must tell his two young children...This film is bound to be a heart wrencher, so tred lightly...but I recomend it to everyone. I have heard nothing but great things, and I will be renting this right away.

~PICK OF THE WEEK~

DARFUR NOW
This is a documentary about the genocide that has destroyed the Western region of Sudan. It comes to us from first time feature Documentarian Ted Braun and is narrated by Don Cheadle and George Clooney. While this is a blind recomendation, this is a subject that must be talked about, and it comes from two of the most outspoken people in Hollywood, so it has to be good. Also, it's only a FIVE DOLLAR purchase, so give it a shot. It will be a welcome addition to any documentary fans DVD Collection...

Now, as usual with summer, there are only a couple of new releases coming to your local theatre, but there are a few interesting ones, so here they are...

-Sex and The City...really? Skipping...
-The Foot Fist Way...Interesting little comedy. It's about a lonely Tae Kwon-Do teacher who goes on a journey with a freind and two of his students to find his hero. It stars Danny R. McBride, the explosion guy from Hot Rod, and it looks like it could be really solid. It's opening in limited release, so it probably won't be seen by many, but if it comes around, check it out...just like this next film...
-Savage Grace...It stars Julian Moore, and is a story about the Barbara Daly Baekland murder case...Here is the wikipedia article about it
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbara_Daly_Baekeland

Not only was the case a shocker, but this trailer is also really stunning...This film would have easily been my pick of the week, but it's only opening in NY and LA, so we are all shit out of luck...

-THE STRANGERS-
Really, what is to be said here. It's POSTER scared the shit out of me. Two people go to a cabin, *cough* Funny Games *cough*, and get kidnapped by murderers. It looks scary, but hopefully it stays away from basic hollywood conventions...I'll be there...


Alright, so thats about it...

Go see something good!!!!!
