NEW IN THEATRES...
* Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky, another biopic of the French designer, this time with the gorgeous Anna Mouglalis as Chanel.
* The Complete Metropolis, the restored version of Fritz Lang's 1927 masterpiece. Opens this week at Cinema 21 in Portland.
* The Girl Who Played with Fire, the disappointing second part of the Millennium Trilogy. Still worth it for Noomi Rapace, though.
* Predators, the fun but flawed third installment in the sci-fi adventure franchise.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
* The Only Son/There Was a Father: Two Films by Yasujiro Ozu, a double-set from the Japanese master, featuring cover art by Adrian Tomine. (Also at DVD Talk.)
THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...
* Chicago: The Original 1927 Film Restored, the original adaptation of the story of Roxie Hart, with Cecil B. DeMille in charge.
* The City of Your Final Destination, the latest from Merchant Ivory never quite takes off.
* Saturday Night Live: The Best of Tracy Morgan, an expanded reissue of the funny man's compilation.
Before I go, check out this hilarious Girl Who Played with Fire trailer. It totally tries to remodel the film as some slick Hollywood thriller.
Current Soundtrack: Rihanna, "G4L;" Kelis, "Acapella;" Scissor Sisters, "Invisible Light;" Sia, "The Fight;" No Doubt, "Hella Good;" Kylie, "Boy"
