Opening this week
I hear that some movies got nominated for something or other this week. That's good news, because the new stuff? Not so much - well, except for Amour, the painful French story about old folks that Scott liked.
I got stuck with Gangster Squad, which depicted and inflicted its own share of suffering and death. Almost as big an old-time disappointment as Lawless.
Do you want to see A Haunted House? Why?
"I'm sorry, beautiful, but I can't look at you right now. There's this mirror behind the bar, see, and I'm so damn pretty I can't tear my eyes away. You understand."
