Transporter 3 (also Blu-ray). Not as ridiculous as the second outing, not nearly as action packed either. I actually enjoyed the movie. It is not great by any stretch, but it is a lot of fun. Jason Statham is perfect for this role and I hope that he gets to play it some more.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. A Holocaust film from the perspective of an innocent child. This movie could use a little more meat on its bones, but it is still very effective. Watching the boy react to each new element in the puzzle is fantastic, topped only by the developing relationship between the two central children.
Howard the Duck. The infamous George Lucas production arrives on DVD, for better or worse. This is a movie that you know whether or not you want without any words from me.
Role Models (also Blu-ray). David Wain is the man behind this surprisingly effective comedy. It is a movie that has so many opportunities to go flying off the rails, but somehow is able to retain the funny, inject some heart, an actually feel fresh. No, not a great film, but one that is well worth watching.
Happy-Go-Lucky. I know little about this film, but the trailer makes me want to see it. It is the tale of a London school teacher with an overly optimistic outlook on life. This also happens to be Mike Leigh's latest, and he is usually worth checking out.
The Batman Anthology: Blu-ray. I rewatched all of these films recently on DVD and I love the first two, while the other two, wow, words escape me. Still, I bet they all look pretty in high definition.
Cadillac Records. This film went largely ignored when it hit theaters. It is a pretty good film, despite the same old traps of biopic films. It does however shine a light on a fascinating era of music and has some great songs in it. It should also be said that Jeffrey Wright turns in a wonderful performance as Muddy Waters.
Synecdoche, NY (also Blu-ray). Charlie Kaufman's latest is one I missed on the big screen, but one I would still like to see. I have heard that it is a tough nut to crack, but I would like to see if I can crack it.
