Oscar contender "There Will Be Blood" arrives in Little Rock today at Matt Smith's Market Street Cinema.  The film is nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor.  David Denby of The New Yorker described it as "an enthralling and powerfully eccentric American epic."  Manohla Dargis of The New York Times writes, "the film is above all a consummate work of art, one that transcends the historically fraught context of its making, and its pleasures are unapologetically aesthetic. It reveals, excites, disturbs, provokes, but the window it opens is to human consciousness itself."  Philip Martin, writing in today's Arkansas Democrat Gazette agrees: "It is a consensus masterpiece." 

Rambo IV titled creatively "Rambo" is here along with "How She Move," "Untraceable" and "Meet the Spartans."  Also, for those of you that missed "Michael Clayton," it is back in theaters.  It received Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Original Screenplay and Original Score.

    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.
