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

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.
