WILL THE WOLF SURVIVE?
* Lymelife, another 1980s coming of age drama, this time starring the Culkins as the children of a failing marriage. Good performances, especially from Alec Baldwin and Timothy Hutton, overcome some familiar territory.
* X-Men Origins: Wolverine, wherein Hollywood undoes a character that was once supposedly invulnerable. Way to go, Hollywood!
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Murmur of the Heart, another surprising and sensitive coming-of-age tale from Louis Malle.
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* Valkyrie, Tom Cruise plays a German patriot trying to save his country from Hitler in Bryan Singer's lukewarm WWII picture. Why couldn't you make Wolverine instead, Bryan, whyyyyy?!
Current Soundtrack: Natalie Imbruglia, "Pigeons & Crumbs"
