Rabbit Hole Trailer

After her brilliant performance in Dogville Nicole Kidman seems to have disappeared from any critical roles. Austrailia was what it was, and Nine hardly gave her anything to work with at all so it will be a pleasant surprise to see her do something of substance in Rabbit Hole.

This trailer doesn't look all that good, but Kidman looks like she really does give it her all in this film, and she may get nominated this year.

This trailer has raised my interest in this movie ten-fold, especially the whole "He's God, he could've just made a new angel" thing. Ballsy script. I like. That sounds weird, but oh well.

Agreed. I wasn't expecting that line from Kidman, but it delivers a slap to the face.

Looks interesting. Don't know if I'll see it in theaters but I will definitely make an effort to see it at some point. I thought Kidman was good in "Margot at the Wedding" from Noah Baumbach. Just about everyone else under the sun tore that film up, however.

Wow, I agree with everyone about Kidman. I generally like her but she looks particularly compelling here and not as glamorous as she usually is, which is a good thing. That line is heartbreaking... I have a colleague who just lost his 11 year-old son suddenly, but the way he deals with it is inspiring. Instead of cursing God he's thankful he was given the privilege to be with his son for that time period.

Review: Anomalisa

Weird is rarely used as a good quality in film criticism, but few words so completely describe Charlie Kaufman’s work as weird does. All of his films are a window into his very particular worldview, and that p.o.v. is certainly unlike anything seen in pop culture. For that reason, Anomalisa became an entry on many most anticipated lists for 2015. That Kaufman chose stop-motion to tell this story made the picture an event. So it came as a disappointment when the film was one of the year’s more mundane efforts.

Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind have an energy and heart at the center that is not present here. Previous collaborators like Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry were able to temper the overwhelming negativity Charlie Kaufman occasionally falls prey to, but, this time, the writer doesn’t have a director to rein things in. In all of his efforts to create an experience that is both familiar and alienating, Kaufman may have accidentally created something host…

Hulk vs. The Incredible Hulk vs. The Avengers

There are two movies about the Hulk and one that features the green monster as a major player. One was made in 2003 by an auteur, starring a little-known Aussie. Five years later The Incredible Hulk came out to the same tepid reaction as Ang Lee's Hulk did. This weekend, The Avengers made the Hulk as popular as he has been in a long time. So it comes down to this: Hulk vs. Hulk vs. Hulk. Who will smash whom?

Round One: Acting
Edward Norton outshines Eric Bana as the dual persona of the meek Bruce Banner and the rage-induced Hulk. Eric Bana was given little to do but run and fight and often the audience was just waiting for him to transform. With the Incredible Hulk, Norton's Banner is fully fleshed-out and we are given a reason to care about him. Being allowed to go a little dark with Banner's scenes questioning what is left of his life provided emotional resonance to the character that Hulk lacked. Yet even with the capable performance that Norton gives there was something …

For my money there is nothing cooler than the idea of a city folding in on itself.
