I am back from my 2.5 day jaunt to the Spa City for the annual gathering of Arkansas lawyers so I'll catch up on news/photos/trailers/events and whatever else is out there that I think you might enjoy. 

Trailers are up for the new Ridley Scott film "American Gangster" starring Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe as well as Will Smith's "I am Legend."  Both films look very interesting.  One has to wonder how many "there's only one man left on earth . . . but he's not alone" films we can sustain in our lifetime, however, and that's the premise of the Will Smith film.  Anyway, it's directed by Francis Lawrence ("Constantine") with a script from Akiva "Batman and Robin" Goldsman.  That's not what I would call a dynamic team, but it's Will Smith and that means hundreds of millions of dollars, regardless of the material.  I just hope we're not in for another "I, Robot"-esque experience, which Goldsman also wrote, interestingly enough.  The film is an adaptation of the Richard Matheson novel, and that should give fantasy/horror/mystery fans some hope. 

Speaking of interesting, here's a glimpse of the new Paul Giamatti/Clive Owen picture "Shoot 'Em Up."  And Werner Herzog's film "Rescue Dawn," starring Christian Bale and Steve Zahn (you can catch this trailer before "Knocked Up").

  • That Time of Year

    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.
