And the Queue Continues to Grow

Another batch of movies added to my queue; enjoy.

Twelve and Holding: Indie drama about the way the death of a 12 year old boy in a fire set by bullies affects the lives of his twin brother and friends.

Death Tunnel: horror flick about a group of co-eds trapped in a haunted sanitarium. Need I say more?

BloodRayne: yes, I know I linked to Howard Taylor's horrible negative review of this, but I can't help it, I'm a masochist when it comes to bad horror movies. It's pathological, I swear.

Barnyard: Animated film from the mind behind Jimmy Neutron.

Glory Road: Like Remember the Titans, only with basketball.

Ultraviolet: SF adventure featuring Mila Jovovich as a genetically enhanced assassin seeking revenge for the slaughter of her people.

Breaking and Entering: Drama from the director of Cold Mountain, starring Jude Law, Juliette Binoche, and Robin Wright Penn.

Something New: Romantic comedy about the relationship between a mixed-race couple, played by Sanaa Lathan and Simon Baker.

R.V.: Robin Williams vehicle (pun not intended) about a dysfunctional family making a cross-country trip together. This gets in the queue not for Williams, but for the presence of Kristin Chenoweth, Wil Arnett, and Tony Hale.

Pulse: remake of the Japanese horror film Kairo (which comes out on DVD next month) starring Kristen Bell

Killshot: movie based on an Elmore Leonard novel about a couple in Witness Protection (Diane Lane and Thomas Jane) being hunted down by a couple of hitmen (the intriguingly cast Mickey Rourke and Justin Timberlake)

Inside Man Spike Lee does action; should be interesting. Stars Denzel Washington as a cop, Clive Owen as a bank robber, and Jodie Foster as a suspicious negotiator.

Failure to Launch: Romantic comedy with Matthew McConaughey as a 30-something man still living with his parents, who resort to hiring a relationship specialist (Sarah Jessica Parker) to get him to move out.

Lonesome Jim: Drama directed by Steve Buscemi, featuring Casey Affleck as a man who has moved back home with his parents after failing at making at on his own, and Liv Tyler as the single mom he falls for.
