Three clips from Red Eye
  • "From director Wes Craven (the 'Scream' franchise) comes 'Red-Eye,' a suspense thriller at 30,000 feet. Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) hates to fly, but the terror that awaits her on the night flight to Miami has nothing to do with a fear of flying. Moments after takeoff, Lisa's seatmate, Jackson (Cillian Murphy), menacingly reveals the real reason he's on board: He is an operative in a plot to kill a rich and powerful businessman... and Lisa is the key to its success. If she refuses to cooperate, her own father will be killed by an assassin awaiting a call from Jackson. Trapped within the confines of a jet at 30,000 feet, Lisa has nowhere to run and no way to summon help without endangering her father, her fellow passengers and her own life. As the miles tick by, Lisa knows she is running out of time as she desperately looks for a way to thwart her ruthless captor and stop a terrible murder."

'Mona Lisa Smile' Producers Accused of Gender Bias. Even as the movie "Mona Lisa Smile" explored stereotypes of female repression at a 1950s women's college, its producers discriminated against 19 female musicians who were paid less than their male counterparts, the U.S. government says.

This week's movies (arthouse - 28 screens): Grizzly Man - 95% positive reviews. A documentary film from Werner Herzog.
  • Without really knowing, I'll guess that the high score probably means that it's the kind of film that critics like far more than mainstream viewers. But they did write some rhapsodic reviews. Example: "the movie is brilliant, poetic, and utterly unique."

This week's movies (limited - 800 screens) The Great Raid - 50% positive reviews. That score may be misleading. The reviews were VERY polarized. Those who liked it said it was brilliant. Those who disliked it did so intensely, and said it was boring.
  • The Good: "literally takes your breath away ... it's easily one of the best movies of the year."
  • The Good: "Except for a silly fictional love story, this is the best war movie ever"
  • The Bad: "I felt like I was being held prisoner. How could such a daring rescue be so boring? "
  • The Bad: "This overlong march will bore all but the most nobly patriotic of auds."

This week's movies: Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo. (Only two reviews on file.) The NUDITY report comes from herorealm.com "There are a handful of scenes with topless women. For that matter, 30 seconds into the film, there is an extreme close up of a man’s butt. There are scenes that border on necrophilia and animal cruelty/bestiality. This isn’t a movie for kids or those easily incensed (although the little boys behind me were having a blast no matter how much their mother kept trying to cover their eyes). "
