A Thunder Matt Movie Minute

A quick look at what's good:
Zodiac: A brilliant, pitch perfect gem of a film. This time director David Fincher (Seven, Fight Club) doesn't take us into the mind of a serial killer, but lets us see the convoluted process of trying to get into the mind of a serial killer. It's the first movie that has clocked in at over 2.5 hours that I was sincerely hoping would be longer. Alas, America has spoken and they'd rather see Tim Allen and John Travolta on motrocycles.

300: A fanboy's wet dream. Equal parts Sin City and Gladiator, it's short on plot and long on cool beheadings. Cheesy dialouge and historical inaccuracies aside, it is an entertaining piece of pulp cinema filled with more testosterone and oiled up men than a Hulk Hogan montage video.

Knocked Up: Not out until June 1st, look for this to be the sleeper comedy of the summer, a la Wedding Crashers. From the director of The 40 Year-Old Virgin, and reuniting much of the same cast, comes this raunchy but sweet classic, easily with the most laughs per minute since Borat. Instantly quotable, requiring multiple viewings. The kind of movie you tell your friends to hurry up and go see so that you can recount scenes.
