anvil Anvil!  The Story of Anvil ★★½☆

There are moments when it is almost impossible to believe that “Anvil” is not a mockumentary.   It feels enough like an alt-universe sequel to “This is Spinal Tap” to make your head spin. Click here for review.

year one Year One – Jack Black and Michael Cera (are there two les similar comic actors?)  are cavemen in this Howard Ramis directed comedy.   I hear that when it comes to funny, it goes more for quantity than quality.

my life in ruins My Life in Ruins – Nia Vardalos’ not-so-triumphant followup to “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.”   From the reviews, it seems lightning only strikes once.   And then rain makes everything soggy and lifeless.

oz Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of OZploitation!

Documentary about the Australian film industry in the ’70s and ’80s, when exploitation films (read: smut) reigned supreme.   From AV Club:  “Think of Not Quite Hollywood as a vividly illustrated catalogue of astonishing smut.”    Alright then.

not forgotten Not Forgotten

Simon Baker and Paz Vega star in a kidnapping thriller that has something to do with the pseudo-Catholic cult La Santa Muerte.   Sounds like great late-night, there’s-nothing-on-cable viewing.
