Mr. Brooks movie review

Earl Brooks (Kevin Costner) is a successful businessman, a loving husband, and a devoted father.  Mr. Brooks however has a dark side which he hides from the world.

Daily he is forced to deal with a schizophrenic personality disorder and an evil alter-ego called Marshall (William Hurt) who only Earl can see and hear.  It seems Marshall, and therefore Earl as well, enjoys the thrill of stalking and killing random strangers.  This has been going on for many years, and although Earl understands and detests this addiction he can’t seem to stop.

Mr. Brooks has three other problems.  The first occurs when he is caught in the act by a amateur photographer (Dane Cook) who wants only to blackmail him and tag-along on his next killing.  The second is an obsessed millionaire cop (Demi Moore) stuck in a messy divorce who wants to track down the serial killer.  And the third is his loving daughter Jane (Danielle Panabaker) who just may be more like her father than he’s willing to admit.

A friend sent me this, sadly not in time for Star Wars Week, but I thought it deserved a posting.  Here’s an artist’s rendition of the Last Supper, Star Wars Style (the full image is available in the Full Diagnosis).  Bonus conspiracy nut-job points for anybody who goes all Di Vinci Code.  Thanks to Jeffe for sending this one on by.

Fresh off the financial disappointment of Grindhouse (read that review) Robert Rodriguez has decided to team with producer Dano De Laurentiis to make a new film version of Barbarella.  The 1968 sexscapade starred Jane Fonda in the title role as the sci-fi/comic book siren which was taken from the French comic book by Jean-Cluaude Forest.

Rodriguez was anxious to get his hand on the character, “I love this iconic character and all that she represents, and I’m truly excited by the challenge of inviting a new audience into her universe.”  No word yet on who will fill Fonda’s, um…shoes, but early gossip seems to like Rose McGowan in to title role.  You’ll know more when we do!
