Haven’t done one of these for a long time, but I defend myself on the grounds that there hasn’t been hardly anything released yet this year worth watching. And Debbie, I promise I will write about American Idol tomorrow.
Apparently this is the response to all of last year’s unplanned pregnancy movies. Don’t ask me to explain why I guiltily want to see this. Probably something to do with my untold love for 30 Rock. Opens April 25th.

This has been knocking around festivals for a year or so, and just because it has a release date now doesn’t mean I’m overly optimistic about it coming near where I am. Ah well. The festival reviews have been glowing, and it looks as endearing as anything. Opens May 2 in limited release.
So when I first heard about this movie, I wrote it off as another stupid kids-TV-series-to-kids-movie thing. But then I saw the trailer. And remembered that it’s the Wachowski brothers making it. And it looks so totally awesome that it’s pretty much my most highly-anticipated movie right now. Look at it! It looks so gorgeous, like a futuristic 1950s. Opens May 9th.
More after the jump.
