The big release this week is Clint Eastwood’s latest movie, “Invictus”. Despite a trailer that makes it look like an ’80s sports movie cheesefest crossed with shameless Oscar bait, it’s actually gotten really good reviews and apparently is a great human drama. Speaking of which, here’s that trailer!

Hey, isn’t that the Lifesavers song?

The other big release this week is Disney’s “Princess and the Frog”, which goes wide after a successful limited opening. It’s a love letter to New Orleans, a new twist on a classic fairytale, and jam-packed full of racist stereotypes and fart jokes.

Suddenly, we don’t miss 2D Disney animation any more.
