Friday movie roundup & advertiser pimpage – Feb. 9

Oh, what poor tidings Hollywood has brought us this week! Of the two new wide releases, one is mediocre, while the other is abysmal.

“Hannibal Rising” is the former, a wan, pointless examination of the famous villain’s early days. It stars no one and was directed by no one.

Meanwhile, “Norbit,” starring Eddie Murphy, is probably the worst film of the year so far. I skipped January, but I don’t see anything on that list that looks like it could have been worse than this. Bleh.

This week’s “In the Dark” also has reviews of “Breaking and Entering” and “Miss Potter,” and if you have not already subscribed to this free weekly e-mailing (which also includes all manner of other groovy movie-related stuff), you should do so at once.

The “In the Dark” podcast can be found here, while the URL to subscribe to it through your iTunes or whatever is here.

And let me take a moment to pimp a couple of new paid advertisers here on!

Survey Monkey doesn’t want your money; they only want your opinion on a couple things. Click over there and give ’em what they want, will you? Gosh!

Meanwhile, Karen Hardy’s PhotoMax does want your money — but in exchange for your money, you can have all manner of photo-related services done. They’ll help you convert old photos into digital, convert digital photos into photo albums, make DVDs out of old videotapes, and much more. So click over there and give them what they want, too.

If you would like to advertise on — it’s really cheap, I swear — check out this page.
