Out this week (22/08/08)

We have a tie for first place in this weeks new releases. Personally neither is really rocking my boat, but if I had to choose I'd go to Hellboy (hence the picture) but knock yourselves out and see what you want.

Get Smart

This remake of the classic 70s TV serial, from the director of some of the most predictable comedies of last last 15 years, is getting some fair reviews. That is to say significantly better than the other big comedies of 2008. Plus it has some interesting cameos.

Hellboy II: The golden army

None of the publicity posters show anything like a golden army, although I have seen repeated shots of Bros. in depressing make-up. Should be great for fans of the original - a bit baffling for the rest of us.

Somers Town

It's probably the "best" of the 3 films out this week; Shane Meadows directing a coming of age tale against the grafters of North London, in black and white. But it's August and I think people want some escapism.
