Now this I want to see! Two seeming innocent and clueless guys in a film revolving around misconceptions and stereotypes played for laughs. If done well, this could be very, very FUN!

When I heard that Joe Cornish’s “Attack The Block” would be opening today, I assumed that it was nationwide. It appears that this is not the case, though there was a sneak preview in Washington, DC a month or two ago.
Despite seemingly skirting the DC region, it has opened in New York, and some areas of California.
I was doing a bit of reading , where I learned from Gerry Anderson’s Wikipedia page–not exactly the first place I check for news, though they do well with things that aren’t in any way divisive–that he’s got back the rights to the “Thunderbirds.”
While I don’t know what the odds are that he can get a feature film off the ground, especially after Jonathan Frakes’ awful movie version, and Mr. Anderson moving out of Pinewood Studios, but I remain hopeful.
Speaking of Gerry Anderson, heard that he is going to be a consultant on the upcoming “UFO,” so that’s cool.

Here’s a link to the trailer for “Tower Heist,’ the new film from Brett Ratner (the director of “X3: The Last Stand” who didn’t care enough about what he was doing to actually read the comic–we’re not talking about “War And Peace” here–that the film was based upon).
As if to confirm my fears, Eddie Murphy’s character is named ‘Slide.’
Slide!? That’s not a name, it’s what things do on wet or slippery surfaces.
I am already not liking this movie.
