This week's movies (1400 screens): The Weather Man -33% positive reviews.
  • That's based on only three reviews. Variety and Hollywood Reporter didn't like it. The positive came from Ain't It Cool News.

This week's movies (3100 screens): The Legend of Zorro - 14% positive reviews.
  • "Demand a director's cut -- at least 30-40 minutes shorter -- before you see ... this long and tedious stunt extravaganza."
  • "The Legend of Zorro is a rather bad and unnecessary sequel, not only plotless but charmless too. It will appeal to young children and indiscriminating viewers only."

The Weekend Warrior's Box Ofice predictions for October 28-30
  • He's calling it for Saw 2, with Zorro 2 in a respectable second. He's handicapping The Weather Man in sixth and Prime in ninth.
  • Among carry-overs, he feels Doom will tank while Dreamer will hold up well.

This really brings back memories.

 

The teaser trailers for Small Town Folk
  • "There is a place... a place called Grockleton, wherein, high on a hill-top stands the lonely Beesley's Manor, governed by the villainous 'Landlord'. Accompanied by his henchmen Pooch and Pike and the diesel-swilling Dobbin, the Landlord keeps a watchful eye over Grockleton and anyone who dares to enter his land. When three improbable heroes stumble unsuspectingly into the Beesley's realm they are cruelly snared into a menacing hunt and an unstoppable frenzy of heart racing mayhem! Will the Landlord triumph and collect his trophies, or can the unlikely trio be victorious against him in his own game?

The trailer for Show Me
  • How far would you go to escape the ties that bind? When two squeegee kids descend upon Sarah and her luxury sedan, the fuse is lit on a tense cat-and-mouse tale of captors and captives. Sarah is forced at knife point to continue her trip to an isolated cottage where the twisted trio bait and entice one another in a reckless search for truth. "Show Me" plunges us into a maze of mystery, desire, memory and self-sacrifice.

The trailer for Guarding Eddy
  • "This is the story of Eddy Patterson (Brian Presley), a likeable 18-year-old kid who suffers from mental disorders. He runs away to Los Angeles to actualize his lifelong dream of trying out for the LA Clippers professional basketball team. Hungry and alone in the strange and unforgiving city, Eddy ends up in a homeless shelter. The director of the shelter, Carol (Anna Maria Horsford), introduces him to his new Big Brother, Mike Jeffreys (Kiko Ellsworth), a young African-American pro basketball player who has jeopardized his shot in the NBA with a knee injury. Mike serves at the shelter as part of his court ordered community service. What begins as a duty quickly turns to friendship as Eddy teaches Mike a profound life lesson about the power of never letting go of your dreams."
  • Wait a minute - that's not realistic. Nobody has ever been refused a job with the Clippers.

Yeah, seen this already. It's called "Man On Fire" with Denzel Washington, Dakota Fanning and the sexy-as-hell Radha Mitchell.

 

A Q&A with 'South Park's' Matt Stone and Trey Parker. They're proud of their own work, but they wish they had done Deuce Bigelow.

Charlize wins best actress award
  • A little early, aren't they? To be fair, they did include unreleased films.
  • The actress picked up the award for her performance in North County. Joaquin Phoenix was named actor of the year for his work in Walk the Line, the upcoming film biography of Johnny Cash. Susan Sarandon picked up the gong for best supporting actress for Elizabethtown, and Matthew Broderick picked up best supporting actor for The Producers.
  • I haven't seen Phoenix as Cash, but it must be one kick-ass performance if they picked him over Strathairn's portrayal of Murrow.

"Screen legend Omar Sharif was sued by a US parking attendant who claims the actor committed a hate crime by punching him and hurling racial slurs Sharif called the Guatemalan guy a "stupid Mexican."
  • Interestingly, in the Movie of the Week about the incident, Sharif will play the Guatemalan guy who got punched, while Sean Connery will play Sharif. Sharif was considered for the role of himself, but was rejected because casting directors feel he is "too Mexican looking."
