movies

This morning I watched a bunch of previews (so you don't have to!) Here's what I'm most excited about:

The new Wes Anderson!
The Darjeeling Limited

Lust, Caution, the new Ang Lee, with Tony Leung

A couple of movies that appear to be heavily influenced by Rushmore: Rocket Science and Charlie Bartlett.

Margot At the Wedding, a new Noah Baumbach with Nicole Kidman,

My Best Friend looks good, I love Daniel Auteuil,

and I can't decide how I feel about this King Kong movie with the teaser trailers - could go either way.

And, they've finally released the trailer for the new Coen Bros movie, No Country for Old Men, which looks really depressing, but did well at the festivals. I'm not into the whole Mystic River/A Simple Plan movies that make you want to slit your wrists after you watch them.

Hi k! i've been missing the blogs while I'm on vacation but I see that you' been paralyzed by my absence anywhoo.....

Sounds like some good movies and until the Coen brothers screw up a couple of times in succession, I'm going to queue up for anything they direct. I *used* to say that about Tarantino...

So the new JJ Abrahms movie is a King Kong film? I hadn't heard that.

Oh, I think I confused my big monsters - it looks like it's a Godzilla movie.
