Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny - February 27

Maybe five years ago I would've been excited about a Tenacious D movie. But now, eh, not so much. I think the D's audience has since grown out of their whole schtick. They did get Dave Ghrol to be Satan in the movie, which kicks all form of ass.

A Good Year - February 27

A nice change of pace for Ridley Scott directing a romantic comedy. Russell Crowe took the time out from whipping telephones across the room and beating some dude down while not dropping his drink, to star along side newcomer Abbie Cornish and Charlie Bucket himself, Freddie Highmore. How long before Freddie gets pulled over and charged with a DUI? I got two months.
