NEW IN THEATRES...
* 127 Hours, Danny Boyle and James Franco bring the pain in the most tense movie of the season.
* Due Date is one appointment you can postpone. (Bazinga!) Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis give it a good effort, but only about half the jokes land.
* Fair Game, has no backfield play, despite good performances by Naomi Watts and Sean Penn. The story before Valerie Plame's outing as a CIA agent is interesting, though.
* Tamara Drewe, 2010 gives us another great comic book adaptation; Stephen Frears brings Posy Simmonds to life.
And don't forget, Portlanders, Kuroneko hits Cinema 21 for a week!
THIS WEEK IN DVD/BD REVIEWS...
* Alien Anthology, the classic sci-fi franchise looks better than ever on Blu-Ray.
* Theater of War, an uneven documentary about the 2006 staging of Bertolt Brecht's Mother Courage starring Meryl Streep. It's best when it's just about Brecht himself.
* William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet, Baz Luhrmann's innovative modern adaptation of the classic doomed romance.
