Then there is Babylon A.D. wherein Vin Diesel plays a grevl-voiced badass who needs to deliver a special girl from Eastern Europe to the Metropolis of New York City. I'd yawn and make jokes, but it co-stars Michelle Yeoh who is always welcome.
There is also the sure-to-be-controversial Oliver Stone's W, but will it be good? What was the last good film Stone made?
Jack Brooks -- Monster Slayer looks to be attempting to follow in the Evil Dead's shoes and hey, more power to 'em. We need more goofy fun horror and fewer torture-porn Saw knockoffs.
Wong Kar Wai is finally releasing his years-in-the-making samurai epic Ashes of Time to American audiences. Previously in San Francisco the only way to see this was from a badly-dubbed bootleg copy available at Le Video. It stars Tony Leung and Maggie Cheung who were phenomenal in Wai's "Chung King Express."
Meanwhile the 1999 WTO protests in Seattle get the retarded Hollywood treatment in Battle in Seattle. It has all the subtlety of a taser or a gun firing rubber bullets into a mother's face. And yeah, I bet it's going to gloss over exactly why the protesters were so angry in the first place.
With Rock n Rolla Guy Ritchie tries to remake "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" a third time. Which isn't terrible, but it'd be nice to see something new. Well, something new that wasn't about his wife.
What looks good to you?
