In looking for a theme this month, I finally hit upon it with the release of the latest Wes Anderson pic.
Bottle Rocket - Luke Wilson, James Caan, Owen Wilson, Lumi Cavazos in.
Rushmore - Luke Wilson, James Caan, Owen Wilson, Lumi Cavazos out, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman and Olivia Williams in.
The Royal Tenenbaums - Jason Schwartzman, Olivia Williams out. Gene Hackman, Anjelica Huston, Danny Glover, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ben Stiller in. Bill Murray stays.
The Life Aquatic with Jacques Cousteau... Steve Zissou - Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, Anjelica Huston stays. Cate Blanchett, Jeff Goldblum and Willem Dafoe in, Danny Glover out... Jason Schwartzman cameo?
The Darjeeling Limited - Bill Murray and Anjelica Huston stay. Cate Blanchett out, Adrien Brody in.
Fantastic Mr. Fox - Clooney and Streep stop by. Bill Murray stays. Anjelica Huston out.
Moonrise Kingdom - Edward Norton, Tilda Swinton, Frances McDormand and Bruce Willis in. Bill Murray stays. Clooney and Streep out.
For Greater Glory - I'm happy for Andy Garcia and all, but this film smacks a little of The Work and The Glory... not good, incidentally.
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - I liked it the first time when it was called Last Night (1998)... wait, I take that back. I didn't see that one either.
Last Night (2010) - Keira Knightley's doing too many movies.
Until the End of the World - Now we're talking!
The Savages - Does PSH ever disappoint?
Savages - Oliver Stone's "Homegrown"... guess he's taking another career U-turn, so to speak!
Ted - Good double bill with Paul
Hit and Run - If this bombs, I fear Kristen and Dax are gonna split up
Madea's Witness Protection - Oh, Eugene Levy...
Iron Sky - My Gart in Himel! Gingrich was RIGHT!!!
Katy Perry: Part of Me - A 3D documentary, maybe? Let me get back to...
Seeking a Friend for the End of the World - Ah... that's better.
"Anger Management" with Charlie Sheen - ...wait a second! This isn't like the Adam Sandler movie at all!... Maybe that's an improvement, actually...
