New release movies Tuesday March 11th.

No Country For Old Men. (10/10) The best film of the year. The Academy finally got one right. In fact, this is the best movie in ten years. Don't rent it, buy it. You can watch this one four times the week you pick it up. Absolutely amazing.

Dan in Real Life. Steve Carrell doing more of his low-key comedy stuff. Could be decent - also stars Juliette Binoche, Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone), Dianne Weist, and Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada)

Bee Movie. Jerry Seinfeld's first attempt at creating a movie, this one a cartoon for kids starring an enterprising bee. From all accounts, it's geared a little more toward adults than really young ones, but I'm looking forward to checking it out.

Hitman. Timothy Olyphant is Agent 47...who doesn't need a name, apparently, or a raison d'etre...he's one of those movie hitmen who is groomed for murder and has no emotions or weaknesses...except fot that one woman. It seems familiar to me, somehow.

August Rush. A young boy is drawn toward New York City by music he hears in the sky, where he will find the parents who were separated from him years earlier, and along the way might discover his inner musical genius. The songs that attract him must all be Emerson Lake and Palmer tunes.

Neverwas. (4/10). Aaron Eckhardt teams with Brittany Murphy in a movie too old for kids and too young for adults. A mythical land of Neverwas may or may not exist...the only redeeming feature in this film is Ian McKellan, who plays one of the most entertaining and charming lunatics since Brad Pitt in 12 Monkeys.

Sleuth. Here is the tagline, cut and pasted: A millionaire detective novelist matches wits with the unemployed actor who ran off with his wife in a deadly seriuos, serioulsy twisted game with dangerous consequences. Deadly sriuios, serilisly twisted? These seems like some mustwatch.

Nancy Drew. It took people this long to make a Nancy Drew movie? Really? The character has been around to be exploited for years...what about the Hardy Boys? Do they get no love? I would like to see a Hardy Boys movie...Shia LaBoeuf as Frank, James MacElroy as Joe...Jonah Hill as lovable meathead Chet...get on this, Hollywood! They can fight terrorists or something, what with the lack of smugglers these days.
