ODDS! FAVOUR! SOMETHING!
Monday tomorrow, innit? Nay bother, let the noisy world of FILMS OUT THIS WEEK drift over your eyes like a lovely, expensive breeze, and ponder what you should watch this week as a reward for being ever so good. Who needs words when you have movey movey pictures, after all?
It’s 2012. The planets are aligning; if you glance upwards into a star-filled sky, you’ll see Venus, Jupiter and Mars are all visible. If you read the Daily Mail, you’ll know that a “Death Star” has been seen “refueling” at the surface of the Sun (genuine news story).

Not because we like children, or want to preserve them in any way, just because we can…
Still good, though.
Everyone loves Stanley Tucci. You know him, he’s the little bald chap in The Devil Wears Prada. And the little bald chap in Julie & Julia. And the little bald chap in Burlesque. And the not-bald paedophile in The Lovely Bones. See? That’s how good an actor he is – sometimes he acts HAVING HAIR. He’s not actually gay, either. Feeling ignorant? Come inside…
At least it’s not Cowboys & Aliens 2.
None of these people look very hungry, if you ask me.
OH JUST GIVE UP
