"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Beauty vs Beast: Ye Olde Switcheroo Movie

Jason fromMNPPhere with this week's "Beauty vs Beast"-- this Friday the latest iteration of the freak-filledHalloweenfranchise hits theaters,but what of another Freaky Friday that cast the great Jamie Lee Curtis in a pivotal role?In 2003 - yes it turned 15 this past August,if you want to feel ancient) Mark Waters' remake ofFreaky Fridaywith Curtis playing mama (then daughter) to daughter (then mama) Lindsay Lohan hit theaters,and it was a great big hit success with everybody.(I mean Jamie Lee should've snagged an Oscar nom,dammit.) So why don't we all eat a fortune cookie and repeat after me...

PREVIOUSLYWe ventured back toWes Anderson'sRushmorelast weekand y'all took Bill Murray's side in a squeaker (just 53%) - saidlylee:

"Team Blume only because Max is so annoying (even though they're both annoying,and Blume in some ways has less excuse to be so immature)!Really,the beauty here is Olivia Williams,whom I found very appealing in this,if a little softer-edged than in her later roles.She's still one of my favorite slightly-below-the-radar actresses out there today."

Beauty vs Beast: School's Out Forever

Jason fromMNPPhere with our weekly "Beauty vs Beast"-- tomorrow is the 20th anniversary of Wes Anderson's filmRushmore,and so you celebrate the battle between Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) and Herman Blume (Bill Murray) we shall.This was Anderson's second film (afterBottle Rocket) and an instant cult hit - it only made 17 million dollars in theaters (itranked 97that the box office,betweenThe Big Lebowskiand54) but I was in college at the time and believe you me,us youngins loved it right out of the gate.

Now it's rightly heralded as a classic - you're not going to hear an unkind word from me on the hermetically crafted direction that Wes started taking his film-making after this (Moonrise Kingdomis my favorite of all his films,after all) butRushmoredoes feel airy in a way that he's moved far far away from (especially with the to the millimeter specificity of his animated efforts) and it might be nice to see him sample some of this looseness again?

PREVIOUSLYI'm real glad that Judith O'Dea got to beat back the zombie horde this one time withlast week'sNight of the Living Deadanniversary edition- poor Barbra has had enough to deal with.SaidNick T:

"Without getting into details,I'd say this answer was a NO BRAINER!!!Hyuk hyuk hyuk"

Tribeca: "The Overnight"

Abstewcontinues our coverage of the just wrapped Tribeca Film Festival...

Alex (Adam Scott) and Emily (Taylor Schilling) are young parents that have recently moved from Seattle to the very different world of Los Angeles.Emily has thrown herself into her career,but Alex bemoans the fact that as an adult that spends his time at home with his young son,there's no easy way to make new friends.It's a very real question that most adults face,if you're no longer involved in institutions like school and business,where exactly do you make new friends?And while that might be the film's initial question,the resulting film has decidedly more adult intentions on its mind...

Sundance: Inhibitions Are Abandoned in "The Overnight"

Michael Chere to chime in on a film that has people buzzing in Park City...

Patrick Brice'sThe Overnightis one of those long night of the soul movies where things start out with dinner and laughter and then the characters drink and smoke away their inhibitions,repressed feelings bubble to surface,and the mood edges into the surreal as the night creeps toward sunrise.As soon as we spot the inviting blue glow of the pool we know some time around midnight the clothes are coming off and the characters will pass a point of no return...
