July 1, 2010


The Last Airbender
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Starring: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Dev Patel
Good if you want to see: the popular Nicktoon turned into Shyamalan's worst-reviewed film yet. Even worse than The Happening, somehow! This guy's a real Downhill Daisy.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (technically opened earlier this week, but if you cared, you already knew that)
Director: David Slade
Starring: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
Good if you want to see: Bella still deciding if she'd rather not have sex with a vampire or a wolf, because, yes, that's still the central conflict.

Love Ranch (limited)
Director: Taylor Hackford

Good if you want to see: a husband/wife brothel-running team. Meanwhile, my wife and I can't even agree on which channel to watch the news! - Ray Romano

Great Directors (limited)

Good if you want to see: conversations with talented directors Bernardo Bertolucci, David Lynch, Stephen Frears, Agnes Varda, Ken Loach, Liliana Cavani, Todd Haynes, Catherine Breillat, Richard Linklater, and John Sayles. Brett Ratner was unavailable.

The Agony and the Ecstasy of Phil Spector (limited)
