Forget "Museum"; the movie you should be rocking around the clock for is "Pan's Labyrinth" by Guillermo Del Toro ("Blade II" and "Hellboy"). If the movie is only ten percent(!) better than the trailer suggests, this will be the killer fantasy film of the year.
But I must admit, "Museum" looks kind of Ben Stiller made in heaven super OK with me. And am I alone in suspecting that even though Daniel Yates is hardly a name in this country, the initial indications are that HP5 looks way cool indeed?

Um? I'm on the watch for movies I can attend with a young kid. I am not going to take her to see any movie that one can realistically compare with "Blade II" and "Hellboy".

We're also interested in "Stranger than Fiction". I've heard good things.

"Hellboy" was only rated PG-13: with a little preparation it could be considered 10 year old friendly. Sort of. But "Labyrinth" is in fact rated "R" so maybe you should send her to me and you and BB can go see it. I bet he'll LOVE it. The trailer looks way cool and the advanced buzz is really buzzy.
Take her to see "Dreamgirls"; the worst that could happen is that she'll end up wanting to dress like Beyonce Knowles. And that is certainly preferable to wanting to dress like Jennifer Anniston!

yeah, but is it coming to scrine? that's the only place i go anymore.

I think the sleeper kid's hit of the season has got to be Apocalypto, or whatever it's called. Berkeley theaters have scheduled kiddie Apocalypto matinees; local schools are staging "Apocalypto" theme days; the streets are full of children in skins and colorful face paint carrying blow guns!

Right. That horrifically violent movie being touted for kids in Berkeley. You almost had me going there, for a second!

e

yikes! he did have me going, good thing you intervened, pam!

Dan

Pam, one person's "horrifically violent movie" is another's "celebration of native peoples." The City Council just voted to give Mel Gibson the key to the city.

speaking of "Now Showing", the Crest has double header "The Bridge" and "Jesus Camp". KInd of struck me as a Karmactic roller coaster. Really Xmasy. Jump off the golden gate, and be reborn in the midwest, working at a Saturday Pancake Breakfast for JC and your new born again family. Weird.
