    That's why I would like to see it, but in reality, I probably won't because it looks really scary!

    I have to say that both the previews for "Just Go For It" and "The Dilemma" made me lol.

    I usually see what I like to call "adult films" (low on fight scenes/violence, no special effects, high on plot and dialogue) in movie theatres. That leaves most of these movies with the linked trailers out.

    I just saw the preview for "I Am Number Four" out Feb. 18th.

    Looks good if you like Sci-Fi/Fantasy.

    Movies opening this week (Friday):

    Season of the Witch (Nicholas Cage and Ron Perlman)

    Country Strong (Opening Wide) - Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Leighton Meester and Garrett Hedlund

    If I Want To Whistle, I Whistle (drama from Romania - looks intense...and good!)

    La Temps Qui'Il Reste (The Time That Remains)

    Info about the above movie from rottentomatoes.com:

    Genre: Drama, Art House & International, Comedy

    Synopsis: An intimate semi-biographical portrait of Palestinians living as a minority in their own homeland between 1948 and the present day, from the acclaimed...

    Phil Ochs: There But For Fortune (documentary featuring Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Peter Yarrow, Tom Hayden and Sean Penn

    No One Killed Jessica (Indian drama - trailer in English and Hindi)

    Americatown

    I'll take the foreign language films over Nicholas Cage this week. Weird that "Season Of The Witch" is the only big movie opening this week (Country Strong has been playing in limited release for a few weeks already). Guess everybody is still going to see the December blockbusters?

    "If I Want To Whistle, I Whistle" has a better trailer than "La Temps Qui'Il Reste (The Time That Remains), IMHO. And "No One Killed Jessica" looks like quite a good movie, but neither of the two trailers I found had English subtitles when the characters were speaking in Hindi instead of English. Strange promotion...

    Americatown has a bad trailer, bad movie description, bad poster. I still don't know what it is about (and don't care to know now)!
    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

    I just saw a clip of that Indian movie on the BBC and want to see it! Based on a true story or so they said! And although I know it is too early I just wanted to mention Thor. I am sooo looking forward to this movie. It looks cool and I am not sure I understand why all the fuss about using a black actor in the role of one of the asgard deities.

    Wanted to give a mention to the French movie "OF Gods And Men" listed to open in LA & NY only but I am hopeful to be able to see it someday. I believe it is about a group of monks who were murdered in Algeria in 1996. They had dedicated their entire lives to doing good works. But that did not help them. Their murder is still unsolved today.

    We saw the Tourist last night. It was decent, as far as I'm concerned anything with Johnny Depp is automatically good.

    It's not a theatrical release, but I'm watching Downton Abbey right now on PBS Masterpiece The-yaaahh-trrrre. It makes me feel smart. It's a period piece of course, but it's pretty good so far. Just thought I'd give a heads-up. Since it's English, it's slooowww and it's easy to catch on.

    I took lessons from Viktor Yelchin years ago and he is just the sweetest guy. I hope Anton finds a lot of success.

    My boss saw True Grit and luuuuurved it. I OTOH saw Tron with my bf and my bf walked out less than halfway through because it was "pointless." He spent the next hour surfing the web in the lobby on his iPhone while I continued to be entertained/distracted by the eye and ear candy.

    Garrett Hedlund is my new celebrity but I'm not sure if I like him enough to sit through Country Strong.

    Yelchin was supposed to star in a movie based on a popular Russian novel called The Winter Queen which was supposed to open this year but has now been pushed back to 2012. HOpe it is still in the works because I really want to see it. Now the female lead in this movie could be a candidate for the actors who are overaged for their role thread! LOL Jovovich was born in 1975 while Yelchin was born in 1989 and they are playing a pair of young lovers.

    It looks like “The Cabin In The Woods” (horror with Richard Jenkins and Bradley Whitford) will be released sometime later in the year. I couldn’t find a real trailer for it, or a release date. Josh Whedon (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dollhouse) is the writer and producer. It is directed by Drew Goddard who wrote Cloverfield as well as multiple episodes of Buffy (and an episode of Lost). So I'm thinking this will be a good one! The allmovie.com description refers to this movie as the “secretive MGM movie”…

    I'm looking forward to seeing Barney's Version, since it was my favourite Richler book -- and that's saying somthing! By all accounts this is an excellent translation of the source material.

    I'm a teensy bit sad that it's yet another American actor playing an iconic CanLit role (following James Woods and Richard Dreyfuss) ... but I'm not hung up on that, and Giamatti is an excellent actor.

    I thought the summary sounded familiar! I recently saw a movie on Netflix called "Facing the Habit." It is also about a man using Ibogaine to stop his addiction. It only works for a few days if I recall correctly. I find this very interesting to see ANOTHER documentary about this same "miracle" drug. Very curious who is behind all of this. In the movie I watched they never even once went into details about how the drug actually worked. They never got into the science of it. They just said it was a spiritual thing and it chased away your demons (I think the preview to the new movie says the exact same thing). That is mumbo jumbo talk. That is not REAL. How does it work on the brain??? It sounds like a big advertisement campaign, to me.

    There was a very long article published in multiple local papers about ibogaine and it sounded REALLY fascinating...because nobody knows how it works - it comes from a medicinal plant. They just know it works somehow which is why they use it.

    I don't knock it if it works. Many medicines we use are in the same boat, actually. We just find out that something treats some symptom, determine it's relatively safe, send it out to market and theorize on its biology later.

    From the article, it seemed like it really does, permanently. The problem is that if you keep up the same enabling lifestyle, you can fall back into addiction easily. But the ibogaine supposedly resets ALL of your tolerances, including caffeine and alcohol. The article was also very clear that it was a dangerous hallucinogen - people have died taking it and it's easy to overdose. It was all just very fascinating for me.

    I'm not sure who would have the money to make documentaries about it, though. I don't think the drug companies are in any sort of rush to have something that can cure you out in the market.
