August 20th Film Releases

Happy Birthday Tink and Barflies alum, Yvonne C.. In honor of your birthday, Hollywood has released a f@#*ed up coming age film, a couple seemingly worthwhile foreign films, a prequel to the Exorcist, and a whole lot of crap. Luckily, Sunset Junction is this weekend, so who needs a good movie when you have X?

1) Mean Creek
2) Nicotina
3) The Women of Rosenstrasse

Exorcist: The Beginning
Good cast (you can't go wrong with Stellan Skarsgaurd) but I've heard not so nice things about the script and cast. All in all this is the kind of pandering movie that I'd rather wait to see on someone else's stolen cable than pay my precious $10 to see it in the theater.

Without a Paddle
Just looking at the poster makes my skin crawl. I like Seth Green, but when is he going to start picking descent roles?

Mean Creek
Young revenge gone terribly wrong. You know how I feel about movies revolving around messed up people doing messed up things. All scripts should have that basic premise. They can call it "The Lauren."

Benji: Off the Leash!
If you take your kids to see this movie, they will grow up to be good for nothing whores who blame you for everything. You've been warned.

A crime caper entry from South of the border. This one features a computer hacker who botches a deal with Russian Mafioso over his sexy neighbor and lots and lots of cigarettes. Apparently tobacco causes more than just cancer.

Uncovered: The Whole Truth About the Iraq War
When Fahrenheit 9/11 turned out to have the explosive impact of a fart on the Bush administration, I'm beginning to fear that George W. is mysteriously untouchable and that this film won't do much better. Good luck anyway.

The Women of Rosenstrasse
A bunch a Polish women protest the captivity of their husbands under the Nazi regime regardless of the consequences to themselves. I'm a sucker for a good WWII story.
