MAMA This is what my face looked like when I had to sit through all 18 hours of Les Miserables.
  • MAMA This is what my face looked like when I had to sit through all 18 hours of Les Miserables.

MAMA The first half of this thing's trailer made me think it was about FERAL CHILDREN who had been ADOPTED and were going to ATTACK THEIR NEW PARENTS. That seemed like 5,000 times scarier than "OooOOooOOO a ghost." I've said it before and I've said it again: We need more films about feral children.

THE LAST STAND Arnold's back, channeling Clint Eastwood as an older-but-still-tough guy. The weirdest thing to me about this is why Johnny Knoxville is getting equal billing with Schwarzenegger. I get who Arnold appeals to, but who the fuck do they think is saying, "Nah, I'm not interested in that. Oh, wait, what? Johnny Knoxville?! Two tickets, please!"

BROKEN CITY January: The month when studios release movies they don't give a shit about and that won't make them any money.

ALONE UP THERE A documentary about standup comedy! Alternately: Go see some standup comedy.

There's more, as ever, in Film Shorts—including The Rolling Stones: Charlie Is My Darling - Ireland 1965, which looks goddamn great, the trailer's below—and here are Film Times.
