Favorite Moments in Film

If you've never seen the BMW series of films starring Clive Owen, you've missed out, and I pity you. Back in 2002 BMV commisioned a number of A-list directors to create a series of short films involving their latest models and Mr. Owen as a Transporterish driver. This one happens to by my favorite, if only because it proves that Guy Ritchie and Madonna were able to make something together that made sense, unlike their marraige, Swept Away, or their children, Rocco and Lourdes.

The 230 Movies I Plan To See From Now To December, With Trailers! (Part III)

Cadillac Records: December 5th
Not really into Motown and whatnot, but Mos Def is a national treasure. And Beyonce can kinda act. And Adrien Brody has a large nose.

Punisher: War Zone: December 5th
Tom Jane (who did a fantastic job in his turn) isn't around for this one, but Lexi Alexander is a talented director and the acting talent isn't so bad either. Plus there's a real villain this time!

Frost/Nixon: December 5th
More on this later.

Local Color: December 5th
I haven't seen Ray Liotta in a movie without guns since Smokin Ac...Revolve...Identit...Narc...Bee Movie!

The Reader: December 10th
More on this later.

The Day The Earth Stood Still: December 12th
The original holds a special place in my heart. So does Keanu Reeves. Looks interesting so far, even though they're going with the whole "Destroy the Earth" theme.

Nothing Like The Holidays: Decembr 12th
Melonie Diaz is cute. That's all I got.

Doubt: December 12th
More on this later.

Timecrimes: December 12th

Gran Torino: December 17th

The Wrestler: December 17th
More on this later.

The Tale of Despereaux: December 19th
I like mice. Animated ones.

Yes Man: December 19th
Jim Carrey looks legitimately funny in this one. Let's hope I'm right and this isn't another Love Guru.

Nothing But The Truth: December 19th
Spy-drama stuff. Usually entertaining.

Seven Pounds: December 19th
I feel like I'm going to be sorely let down by this with all the hype surrounding it.

The Brothers Bloom: December 19th
More on this later.

Bedtime Stories: Christmas Day
Russell Brand. Don't give a shit about Sandler, I just want to see Brand.

Marley & Me: Christmas Day
Because nothing says Christmas like a divorce and a suicide case, with puppies! (Yeah, that was mean).

Last Chance Harvey: Christmas Day
More on this later.

Waltz with Bashir: Christmas Day
Heard it was good. Don't remember what it's about.

The Spirit: Christmas Day
More on this later.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button: Christmas Day
