What a great week of options for you today, as if last week’s Avatar wasn’t a pleasantly fast surprise! A ton to choose from this week after a couple slow weeks. If you are looking for a fun, action packed movie and don’t mind subtitles, France’s District B-13 is fantastic (the sequel not nearly as good but still entertaining). Then we have quite a few classics in there as well. Imagination of Dr. Parnassus was of course Heath Ledger’s last film, and…well, it’s weird. Very weird. Lots of cameos from some famous actors couldn’t save it for me however as it was just all over the place. But hey, might be your thing. Five Minutes of Heaven was solid by the way–although not nearly as intense as Taken, Liam Neeson delivers a fine performance as usual.
