The Informant (Weekly Pick) (2009) -

Steven Soderbergh could have used an informant on his 2005 Bubble pic. Someone to say..."This sucks Steve. You just did Ocean's 12 for gawd's sake!" But no, it took 7 long years to get this Informant on screen and surprised Matt Damon that it would be a comedy. Surprised him. That's funny.
The Informant(!) is not going to be everyone's bowl of corn flakes. You have to slowly watch the comedy seep out of the desperation and stupidity of Matt's character, and see how, oh so slowly, that stupidity is quite infectious. And funny. Corn is funny again!

The Thirty Best Films of the Twenty First Century (So Far)

Mercury Blog Image - FLiXER
Not sure I understand the timeliness of this subject, but others have attempted it - see below - quite badly. "Thank you movie buffers for all your suggestions to my last topic, they were very helpful and I used them to help compile this list. In my opinion these are the thirty best films of the Decade so far. While I can appreciate how well loved The Lord of the Rings trilogy is I never found it engaging and therefore none of those films make the list." "There are also some noticeable exceptions, and perhaps an unexpected choice of which Almodovar film to include. All of my...

Mischa Barton - 5150, 5151 Whatever It Takes...

Mischa's been placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold (also known as a 5150) by the Los Angeles Police Department and is currently at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, reports Access Hollywood. The next 72 hours could bring serious soul searching and seriously hot photo-shoots of her in white. Defamer says she missed her comeback in New York tonight by missing the premiere of her new movie, Homecoming. Or, just maybe, the comeback starts with 72 hours of crazy... And in all seriousness, we all hope she's just "actor crazy" which can be fun and exciting, and not anything else, which is...

Couples Retreat (2009) You may be tempted to ignore this pick and go see An Education instead, and you know what, you might be right. An Education is a fine movie, moving and introspective.

All About Steve (Weekly Pick) (2009) -

FLiXER Review Poster Image (February 23, 2010 - 3:26pm)
Licensed To Wed writer Kim Barker gets another shot at comedy. A yarn about Sandra Bullock, a wacky 40s crossword puzzle constructor (aka the morning confounder) who falls in love with a news cameraman, Bradley Cooper. A fill in the squares type of movie. Black and white. Diagonal logic. You get the picture - 4 down. Cooper is hot off his debauched hit The Hangover, and Bullock is proving you can still be cute in your 40s even with too much make-up. Rocky Faulkner, I hope it was supposed to look that way, or since you've done a lot of special effects make-up, maybe it was all a thick...

Missing Missy - The Lost Cat (repost of missing website)

superman Blog Image - FLiXER
Missing Missy went missing - I guess the website got too many hits and they had to take it down. Here's a repost for your kitty loving/hating pleasure. And here's one of the comments "corrected" with cat appropriately replaced with designer: I am extremely emotional over this and was up all night in tears, I mean, that poor designer... I am not a big fan of designers. I do not hate them, I just have no interest in them whatsoever. If I visit your house, I do not want to pat your designer, sit on the couch where it has been or have you make me a sandwich after patting it. I didn't want...
