The Weekly Top 5

1.  The trailer for Martin Scorcese’s Shutter Island.  Starring Leonardo DiCaprio and based on a book by Dennis Lehane (Mystic River, Gone Baby Gone), this is the tri-fecta of brilliance.  This movie is going to kick so much ass!

2.  A sequel to “The Hangover”? Say it ain’t so!  The enormous success of this R-rated comedy this summer has sparked sequel discussions within Warner Brothers.  The leading men and director Todd Phillips appear to be excited about the opportunity of a sequel, but I’m a lot less enthusiastic.  Sure, The Hangover was a hilarious and fun movie that almost everyone has enjoyed, but should there really be a sequel to it?  This is just the studio trying to squeeze every buck of out of a current trend.  But hey, I could be wrong and the sequel to The Hangover might be better than the original.  It could happen.

3.  I’m glad I’m not the only one who believes Pixar is the greatest movie studio in the business.

4.  Clint Eastwood’s new film, Invictus, has a release date: December 11.  That’s right, smack in the middle of Oscar Season.  Also starring Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon, this movie boasts a lot of acting talent.  Needless to say, there are high expectations for Invictus.

5.  “The Hangover” based on a true story?
