NEW IN THEATRES...
* Iron Man 2. Robert Downey Jr. is good, but he's no Scarlett Johansson.
I also recommend the new Black Widow comic by Marjorie Liu and Daniel Acuna. It was a super fun read, more spies than superheroes, and the art is de-lovely. Here's a preview.
* The Secret in Their Eyes, this year's Best Foreign Language Oscar winner is a twisty, involving thriller.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* Ride with the Devil, Ang Lee's Civil War drama emerges in a new light on this director's cut DVD.
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* 35 Shots of Rum, a marvelous Ozu-like drama from Claire Denis.
* Five Minutes of Heaven, a revenge story that goes surprisingly intellectual on us, but not in a good way. Good performances from Liam Neeson and James Nesbitt, though.
* Joe Rogan: Talking Monkeys in Space, a funny but unbalanced stand-up special from the Fear Factor/Newsradio guy.
* Wolverine & the X-Men: Revelation, the fifth volume in the DVD collection of season 1 of this cool cartoon.
Current Soundtrack: Sleigh Bells tracks on YouTube (start here)
