Two solid new releases hit theaters this weekend, and I'm not referring to any sequels featuring animated critters or Sharon Stone's cooch. Also out today is a front-runner for the worst film of the year (hint: it's named after a state).
And for those interested in some seriously bizarre Russian filmmaking, check out my enthusiastic thoughts on the upcoming 4, which seems destined for a love-it-or-hate-it reception when it hits screens in a couple of weeks.

Finally, though I didn't participate in this past week's Abel Ferrara Blog-a-thon (check out girish for links to all the articles), I did - through sheer coincidence - begin watching the NYC-centric director's films last week. Keep an eye out for reviews of The Driller Killer and Ms. 45 sometime this weekend...
