Kick-Ass 2.  I will reserve judgment until I actually see it. But it looks…cheaply-made. What’s up with that? However, HIT GIRL!

Hit Girl

Hit Girl will take your ass down

US release date is July 19th for the Irish monster flick, Grabbers.  (Psst, George is in it!)

 

No Place on Earth is a documentary chronicling the experiences of Ukrainian Jews hiding in a cave for over a year during the Nazi invasion.

Danny Boyle‘s Trance with one of our favorites, Vincent Cassel.

Well.  We are 7 days (here in this hemisphere, anyway) into 2013.  Any movie- or food-related resolutions on your list for this year? Let us know!

I resolve to tackle the very large stack of movies I’ve been collecting over the years but have not taken time to actually view.

I resolve to tackle our Urbanspoon Wishlist and also add to it consistently.

I resolve to see more indie films and locally-made movies.

I resolve to eat seasonally and locally as much as possible.

And with that, I’ll leave you with this cheese-tastic scene from the first film we watched this year, Highlander. There can be only one!

 

Bobcat Goldthwait brings us another dark gem in God Bless America.

Moody, broody Paris thriller, The Woman in the Fifth.

Time travel. Well, maybe. Look for Safety Not Guaranteed.

Definitely excited about Sarah Polley‘s Take This Waltz.

Australian horror flick The Loved Ones has our attention.

Seeking a Friend for the End of the World teams Steve Carrell and Keira Knightley. Yep. It does. I swear.

Outsider in a village seeks to learn tai chi from the master but villagers are forbidden from sharing their knowledge. He must earn their respect and gratitude before they will allow him to study their secret art.

Tai Chi O

Tai Chi O, the first in a planned trilogy, will be distributed by Well Go USA so there is a very high chance we will actually get to view it.  With  Stephen Fung directing  and Sammo Hung as action director, we’re practically salivating here.  Diversion Pictures is hell bent on creating a new Chinese martial arts star and we’ll be keeping an eye on what develops.

When the trailer hits the internet, we’ll make sure you get to see it.

Prison break in space? Okay. Sure. Why not? With Luc Besson producing and credited with co-authoring the script,  Lockout, alternately titled MS One: Maximum Security, should prove to be, at the very least, an entertaining action flick.  We hope the presence of Guy Pearce and Peter “I need unguent” Stormare in the cast will help to elevate up and out of the stereotype.  Let’s find out on April 20th, when it comes to a theater near you.
