Because the new year is all about making lists!
Pan’s Labyrinth: Almost went to see it NYE. But smacked self in head thankfully before driving into the City (it ain’t playin’ in the Boonies of Berkeley yet).
Perfume: Opens January 5th. Salon.com review.
Miss Potter: Opens January 12th. Salon.com review. And, omg, I can’t believe I just packed away a report I did in grammar school on Beatrix Potter! I should have scanned it for ya’ll first. Heh.
The Other Boleyn Girl: Despite the juicy subject matter, I’m having a hard time getting enthused about this one. I read, or attempted to read, one of Ms. Gregory’s other novels (Wideacre) and it was so unbelievably bad I actually threw the book away. In the trash. I get nothing but angry hives just thinking about what she’d do to a subject I actually cared about. Besides, BBC did this two years ago, I’m sure it will hold up better.
Tudor drama, wherefore art thou, dammint!?!?!
A bit more than rumour:
Sweeney Todd: Tim Burton and the Gang! Two fists in the air!
And I have to say, I’m kinda giddy about C. Nolan doing Dark Knight w/ Christian Bale. Teehee!
If Maggie Smith is in it, does that mean it won’t make me want to claw my eyes out with dirty fish hooks??? See: Becoming Jane.
