Movie. Movie. Sami's got some mooooovies. Since Lars is only limited (i.e. NOt likely in denver) - you can bet your ass me and my sour jelly bellys are hitting the theater this afternoon for We Own the Night...

The Jist: A New York nightclub manager tries to save his brother and father from Russian mafia hit men. [imdb.com]
Yay, Nay or Rental Play?:Looks awesome. Have wanted to see it for a few months now. Wish I would have seen Joaquin on TRL, Letterman, Etc. all week instead of Eva - but she's cool too... so i'll take it. Yes you will go! You know why? Because stuff like this does happen between brothers... and allthough this is a pretty extreme example - it'll still get the point across.

Yay, Nay or Rental Play?: Remember Life as a House? I imagine this to be a lot like that... giving you a glimpse into someone's home. This stuff happens all of the time - but you never know until you're given a front row seat. Bring Kleenex.

The Jist: Kent Stock (Austin) distrupts his life to become coach of the Norway High School baseball team and try to lead them victory [imdb.com]

The Jist: A delusional young guy strikes up on unconventional realationship with a doll he finds on the internet [imdb.com]
Yay, Nay or Rental Play?:Oh my GOD! As if this weren't perfect timing. I'm sure you didn't miss my whole Shpiel on Love Me, Love my Doll (if you did, you can watch it -- it is linked on my side bar to the left). I LOVE RYAN GOSELING. I love it. I can't wait to see it. I hope Denver is lIberal enough to bring it to our theaters. If not - i'm sure it'll be at my local gay-borhood video store soon enough. WOOOOOOO!

The Jist: In the ironically named city of Paradise, a recently laid-off loser (Ward) teams up with his cult-leading uncle (Foley) to steal a peculiar bounty of riches from their local amusement park; somehow, the recently arrived Taliban have a similar focus, but a far more sinister intent [imdb.com]
Yay, Nay or Rental Play?: Somehow... this trailer doesn't seem to match up with the description at all... but i checked. and it's right. I don't know about this... i .... think i'll pass.

Yay, Nay or Rental Play?: Love Michael Caine. Kind of Love Jude Law (mostly just in The HOliday). Seems a little Face offish - but it's a remake - so I guess Face Offish is a little Sleuthy. I'd have to be in the mood for this. and I'm not.

Key Players: Tyler Perry, Janet Jackson, Malik Yoba, Jill Scott
Tag Line: Because we complete each other's sentences.
The Jist: A big screen adaptation of Perry's stage play about the trials of marriage, and what happens to one family when a sexy young temptress arrives on the scene [imdb.com]
Yay, Nay or Rental Play?: Oh, Janet. She's hot. She's fat. She get's thin again - and then she's toting arond an extra ass in those sweat pants of hers. Now she's gorgeous again and playing her cool J-card in this new film... ahh- the only normal Jackson. Gotta Love her. I'm going to save this for a "Waiting to Exhale" girls night when I'm stocking up on popcorn, brownies and diet coke.
