Weekly link roundup – Jan. 7-13

NEW MOVIE REVIEWS:

“We Need to Talk About Kevin” (A-)
“Joyful Noise” (C-) [Film.com]

“Contraband,” which has to do with Marky Mark taping drugs to his chest and sneaking them somewhere, or something like that, was screened at the same time as “Joyful Noise.” I chose the one that was closer to my house.

Also, Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is being re-released in 3D. I assume it’s as good as it was before, only now in 3D.
