Folks, it’s that time of year again – when the movie studios wisely follow three months of releases completely bereft of anything worth watching by packing everything that looks decent into a two-month window within which you’ll have no way of seeing everything you wanted to. Opening this weekend (click on the title to go to the trailer):

Iron Man
Don’t know much about this one.  Have you guys heard anything?

Made of Honor
McGagme

Redbelt
In the past, David Mamet’s made some worthy contributions to cinema such as Wag the Dog, and Chuy is a fine actor, but this looks stupid.  Why do they always have to make fight movies about more than people hitting each other in the face?  I like people hitting each other in the face.

Son of Rambow
"In 1980’s Britain, young Will Proudfoot is raised in isolation among The Brethren, a puritanical religious sect in which music and TV are strictly forbidden. When Will encounters his first movie, a pirated copy of "Rambo: First Blood," his imagination is blown wide open. Now, Will sets out to join forces with the seemingly diabolical school bully, Lee Carter, to make their own action epic."  Sounds almost like a Michael Bay origin story, doesn’t it?
