Against the Current (2009)
Yellowcard automatically makes the cover immensely better, because even though Against the Current is already supported by their acoustic guitar and fantastic voice from vocalist Chrissy Costanza, you’re also treated to the addition of Yellowcard frontman Ryan Key and violinist Sean Mackin.
Mackin has been rocking the strings for Yellowcard since the group’s inception, and it’s made Yellowcard one of the most unique rock bands in the mainstream in recent memory. Mackin’s violin parts complement the Key and Costanza duo beautifully,

About: This increasingly dynamic festival of independent cinema is geared towards young and debut directors. Taking place in the picturesque southern Polish city of Krakow, the festival is staged in former palaces – such as the Pod Baranami cinema and Kino Ars just off the main square – and, to a lesser extent, at all seven of the city's other art-house cinemas.

Paths Of Glory (Criterion) Stanley Kubrick’s 1957 antiwar classic put him on the map as a major filmmaker. Kirk Douglas stars in a true story about a French officer in Ww I who locks horns with the military’s top brass after his men are court-martialed for failing to carry out an obvious suicide mission. A perfect film, across the board, with fine support from George Macready as one of the most despicable martinet’s ever captured on film, Ralph Meeker, and Adolphe Menjou, all oily charm as a conniving General. Also available on Blu-ray disc. Bonuses: Audio commentary by critic Gary Giddins; Excerpt from 1966 audio interview with Kubrick; 1979 interview with Douglas; New interviews with Jan Harlan, Christiane Kubrick, and producer James B. Harris; French television documentary on real-life case which inspired the film; Trailer. Widescreen. Dolby 1.0 mono.

Toy Story 3 Footage Preview
So, I was able to see the first 70 minutes of Toy Story 3 this week.
Watching the movie begin, hearing the reactions of the college students who literally grew up with this franchise, I was worried something wasn’t going to be right. That there was going to be something there on the screen I could no longer identify with a decade after Toy Story 2 debuted in the theaters. I was shocked that it’s been fifteen years since the first installment came out, the number 95 pasted on the runaway train in the opening sequence feeling like a tender callback to that time.
I was worried, fraught with nervousness that somehow I made the wrong choice

Tonight they're opening the festival with Against the Current, starring Joseph Fiennes, Elizabeth Reaser, Justin Kirk and Mary Tyler Moore -- and if you're one of the lucky ones in attendance, you'll spot a hottie Cinematical stud named Erik Davis hosting the post-screening Q&A.
