Pick of the Week

Pirate Radio

Good music of course, lots of comedy—in the style of Monty Python—Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Bill Nighy. Who could ask for anything more?

Pick of the Week

This Is It

I went with Jack, my 6th grader. He says that most of the kids in his class like Michael Jackson. We talked about how seldom there are monster superstars—Frank Sinatra, Elvis, The Beatles, Michael Jackson—for this reason alone the movie is probably worth seeing.

The Men Who Stare at Goats

Sue and I both found the first half was pretty funny and the second half really dragged. It's an odd and small story to bring to the big screen.

The Fourth Kind

This is a pretty cool idea (combining documentary footage of something that really happened and footage of movie stars playing the parts of the real people) and the title kind of hooks you in, but I found the movie to be a big snooze. Everything about it from the dialogue to the cinematography is flat and uninteresting—at least to me.

The Box

The director of this flick has apparently taken one or two too many acid trips.
