NEW IN THEATRES...
* MacGruber, a surprise comedy hit from the SNL-factory. Somehow the thinnest sketch of all-time has become one of the show's best movie spin-offs.
* Mother and Child, the antidote to that Babies film. Starring Annette Bening and Naomi Watts.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* The Red Shoes, the newly restored Powell & Pressburger classic gets a rare theatrical run.
Portlanders, you have to go to Cinema 21 to see this!
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* The Dukes, a genial comedy about an aging doo wop group trying to get through hard times. Part heist picture, part social commentary, it's flawed but feels good. Written, directed by, and starring character actor Robert Davi, playing alongside Chazz Palminteri.
* Los Tres Mosqueteros, the Cantinflas adaptation of The Three Musketeers could have been funny at about 2/3 the length.
* The Sun, Russian director Alexander Sokurov's unconventional biopic of Hirohito
Current Soundtrack: The Trash Can Sinatras, In the Music original limited edition bonus tracks; Windsor for the Derby, "Queen of the Sun;" Janelle Monáe, The ArchAndroid
