NEW IN THEATRES...
* Howl, the story of the Allen Ginsberg poem, with James Franco as Ginsberg. Plus, cartoons.
* Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, though not as incisive as the original, it's pretty good...until Oliver Stone loses his erection. He needs movie viagra.
UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...
Bigger Than Life, James Mason stands tall in this whacked-out portrait of 1950s drug addiction from Nicholas Ray.
* Charade, the Audrey Hepburn/Cary Grant classic comes to Blu-Ray (Also at DVD Talk).
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* Bored to Death: The Complete First Season, Jason Schwartzman is great in the Jonathan Ames-created TV show. Modern literary rom com mashed-up with the private detective genre.
* Janeane Garofalo: If You Will - Live in Seattle, in which Janeane reclaims the stand-up stage.
* Saturday Night Live - The Best of Adam Sandler, a redefining of the relativity of "best."
* Soundtrack for a Revolution, a good but unfocused documentary about the music of the Civil Rights movement, with contemporary artists doing new versions of the old songs.
Current Soundtrack: The Moonglows channel on Pandora
