I caught a screening of "In the Land of Women" yesterday and while I was not overly impressed with the film, I thought Adam Brody did a fine job.  The film had some gaps and probably could have used an additional 15-20  minutes to better develop some of the characters and their relationships, but if was a good first effort for Jonathan Kasdan.  Before the film, I saw two interesting previews. 

The first preview was for the film "Across the Universe" starring Evan Rachel Wood and directed by Julie Taymor, who last directed "Frida".  The imdb.com summary reads, "An original musical film, Across The Universe is a fictional love story set in the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, the struggle for free speech and civil rights, mind exploration and rock and roll. At once gritty, whimsical and highly theatrical, the story moves from high schools and universities in Massachusetts, Princeton and Ohio to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Detroit riots, the killing fields of Vietnam and the dockyards of Liverpool. A combination of live action and painted and three-dimensional animation, the film is paired with many Beatles songs that defined the time."  Here's the tailer.

The other film is a food film starring Aaron Eckhart and Catherine Zeta Jones called "No Reservations."

Off to see "Fracture."  Enjoy your Saturday.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
