THE PLANK JANUARY 5, 2009

That Was The (cinematic) Year That Was

Out with Dark Knight; in with Watchmen. Out with a tiny Eddie Murphy driving around a life-sized Eddie Murphy; in with Russell Crowe playing both Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham. Out with the Rock in a "Get Smart" relaunch; in with the Rock in a "Witch Mountain" relaunch. For those who missed it over the holidays, I reviewed some of the under-the-wire releases (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Wrestler, Valkyrie, Gran Torino) here, and offered a variety of end-of the-year awards here. I should have a (slightly belated) review of Revolutionary Road later this week.
