TO BE SOMEONE (DIDN'T WE HAVE A NICE TIME)
NEW IN THEATRES...
* Avatar, the James Cameron blockbuster makes up for its lackluster script with truly stunning effects
* Up in the Air, Jason Reitman and George Clooney deliver the true winner of the season. I loved it!
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* Beautiful Losers, an interesting documentary about a group of contemporary artists who came up through NYC in the 1990s.
* The Hangover is still funny despite the 2-disc unrated edition being kind of a disappointment.
* Lion's Den, one of my favorites of the year is a little-seen prison drama from Argentina. Martina Gusman is fantastic.
* Rescue Me: Season 5, vol. 2, the stretched-out season of Denis Leary's firefighter dramedy runs out of sizzle in the second half.
Current Soundtrack: Starsailor, "Some of Us;" The Jam, "To Be Someone;" The Clash, "Gates of the West;" Cool Kids of Death, "Disorder (w/ Process Plus);" Oasis, "Hello;" The Verve, "Come On"
