The Oscar Flicks Are Upon Us! Clooney! Leo! Marilyn! Schtupping!

by

My incisive new column takes you through the wealth of quality entries invading the cineplex while aiming for the gold:

George Clooney playing the kind of imperfect-but-lovable character he specializes in, and doing it with his customary charm and subtlety.

People singing and dancing without sound.

An unhinged doctor using sex-change surgery as revenge.

A mishandled girl who joins a sex-and-violence cult.

A blond screen legend who looks better in a dress than that tortured FBI chief.

And a sad, hollow man who bangs himself into oblivion, but has the time of his life doing so.

All in 3-D!

Please buy the mug on the way out.
