"Drillbit Taylor" is the latest film from Judd Apatow.  But unlike his previous films, the reviews are brutal.  "Honeydripper," starring Danny Glover and directed by John Sayles, opens at Market Street Cinema.  David Denby of The New Yorker writes, "Moviemaking seems to have become almost magically easy for this independent writer-director."  "In Bruges," starring Colin  Farrell, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Feinnes is at Breckenridge.  Manohla Dargis of the New York Times opines that the film is "an amusing trifle from the potty-mouthed playwright Martin McDonagh."

The Democrat Gazette notes that "4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days" arrives on March 28th.  Surprisingly ignored for a Best Foreign Language Oscar nomination, this Romanian film from Cristian Mungiu is one of the best of 2008.  It's a must see.

    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.
