Next Week: A lot of fucking films

Jennifer's Body: Sex object of the decade Megan Fox goes evil, and given that Diablo Cody thought it would be hilarious for the term 'Maneater' to be taken literally, she goes Hannibal Lecter on a bunch of teenage boys. Including Beaver Casablancas from Veronica Mars. I think I will guiltily enjoy this, particularly if its funny. Expectancy level: 7/10

A Christmas Carol: A CGI'd Jim Carrey takes on the role every middle-aged comedian has got to play at some time or another, Scrooge. I have yet to really like a Robert Zemeckis animated film, The Polar Express clunked, Beowulf was an interesting failure. So less then exuberantly excited. Expectancy level: 6/10

The Men Who Stare At Goats: I'm feeling this. A return to more self-mocking territory for Clooney, which is certainly a good move, plus living legends Jeff Bridges and Kevin Spacey and an apparently a Ewan McGregor who has finally shaken off the post Obi Wan blues. I'm gonna go out on a limb for this one. Expectancy Level: 8/10

Bright Star: May end up getting passed over to next week given this week's glut, but I can't say I'm excited. I'm sure its good and all but its about the loves of a 17th century poet. I like to think I'm cultured but I have to age 40 years overnight to be excited about this. I'm sure I'll give it a good review though. Expectancy lvel: 7/10

Paper Heart: Semi-documentary about comedienne Charlyne Yi's (Stoner girl from Knocked up) quest to find love. Has Michael Cera in it. Semi-intrigued but I wouldn't bet on it. Expectancy level: 6/10

A 19th-century poet, ackshully, sunshine... and a good one. Probably a boring film though...
