Violet and Daisy

The trailer for Geoffrey Fletcher's upcoming movie "Violet & Daisy" has arrived, and it definitely is not what we were expecting. The flick stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel as two teenage assassins who love their line of work but are drawn into a hit they don't quite understand and quickly get in over their heads. It seems like a simple enough premise, but the trailer reveals that the movie could actually be much more.

First of all, it's a whole lot funnier than the story would lead one to believe. There's a certain tongue-in-cheek quality to the trailer that is intriguing, but it's unclear if that's indicative of the movie as a whole or just the marketing. Hopefully it's the latter, as one of the main plot points in "Violet & Daisy" is that the girls take on a hit so they can have enough money to buy dresses.

Inglourious BasterdsThis week brings yet another easy weekend screening for me. Especially since, unlike last week, I haven't actually seen the highly anticipated upcoming release in question.

It's been a long time since director Quentin Tarantino served up a proper feature. There was "Death Proof" of course, which formed one half of "Grindhouse," and a brief bit in "Sin City." But the last feature-length solo effort from Tarantino was "Kill Bill: Vol. 2," and that was in 2004. While the Bride's tale of bloody revenge was a blast, I'm looking forward "Inglourious Basterds"' World War II adventure. Maybe it's the Jew in me, but the premise of American soldiers brutalizing Nazis while spouting Tarantino dialogue sounds exactly like my idea of a good time at the movies.

Those who are not quite as fond of the "Pulp Fiction" director's work have some good options to choose from, among them last week's excellent "District 9," which is sure to repeat its solid weekend performance as word-of-mouth builds. Then there are the new releases... Read More...

Graduating from college nowadays is a scarier thought than usual given the current state of the economy and its depleted job market. But that's exactly what "Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" star Alexis Bledel is doing in her new mature comedy, "Post Grad."

In the film, Bledel is forced to move back with her parents (featuring Michael Keaton as her dad!) while hitting the interview circuit looking for work. Along the way, of course, romance beckons. "Post Grad" will hit theaters August 14.
