Friday Flick Picks 4/4/08

There is joy in RI theaters this weekend, as Shine a Light opens at the IMAX theater (much as I love ya, move over U2)! Martin Scorsese brings the Rolling Stones to the very large screen, in a concert documentary from a show in NYC from 2006. I've seen trailers that look amazing, and Scorsese weaves his film magic around these rock icons. My man, George Clooney, presents a comedy in the film Leatherheads. Set in the 20's, a WWI vet tries to bring commercial success to professional football. Great date flick! Other comedies in theaters, Run Fatboy Run and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. Drama can be found in 21 , The Counterfeiters and Stop-Loss. Nim's Island looks like a good family, adventure film. And finally, take those kids to see Horton Hears a Who!

I'm on the fence... so is it worth my theater money?

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I just got back from "Leatherheads." Pretty good but not as screwball as I was hoping. I'll write a review in the next day or two.
Glad you enjoyed O'Toole! But then again, who doesn't enjoy some Peter O'Toole?
