    In Theaters: 'Fast Five' Ready To Drive Over 'Prom' & 'Hoodwinked Too'

    In theaters this week: THE ROYAL WEDDING!! JK, we already watched that this morning. Who got up at 5 am for the most splendid celebration of the year?! EEE!! So exciting, but this is neither the time nor the place for wedding recap so let's move on to entertainment of the cinematic variety. As always, there's a range of selections at the theaters, but the pickins are rather slim this weekend. Aside from the muscles n' 'splosions fest "Fast Five," from the inexplicably tenacious "Fast and Furious" franchise, there's not much else big opening this weekend. Of course, there's an offering for the children in "Hoodwinked Too" in 3D, and something called "Prom" (this is the first I'm hearing of it), and some semi-interesting looking limited releases.

    With "Cave of Forgotten Dreams" Werner Herzog Uses 3D to Break Down the Barriers of Time

    In the many months since the faded afterglow of “Avatar” there has been quite the backlash against 3D. People say that it’s just a way jack up the price of a ticket, the glasses hurt your eyes and it often ruins the look of a movie (retro-fit 3D specifically). To a certain extent those arguments are all true. But one of the complaints, to which even "Avatar" can offer little retort, is that there has yet to be anything that uses the new technology to really improve film as art. We see countless movies come out with no real compelling case for the merit of that cinematic extra dimension as anything other than pure spectacle. Where’s the artistic value?

    Poster For Cannes Competition Film 'Sleeping Beauty' Starring Emily Browning

    Sales Poster For 'Albert Nobbs'; New One Sheets For 'Green Lantern'Here's a bit of poster round-up and we'll kick it off with what is sure to be one of the most talked about films at the Cannes Film Festival. A lovely one-sheet has landed for "Sleeping Beauty," Julia Leigh's competition contending film. Starring Emily Browning, the film is described as a haunting erotic fairy tale that centers on a student who drifts into prostitution and finds her niche as a woman who is drugged into sleep while men do to her what she can’t remember the next morning. The provocative trailer for the film has already been making waves prior to the fest and it will likely be a very hot ticket on the Croisette.
