All this weekend! 5 movies I’m psyched for in December and 5 reasons why. No. 5: The Spirit [opens in the U.S. on December 25, and in the U.K. on January 1, 2009].
1. Gabriel Macht. He is so cute. Plus, after years of solid yeoman’s work in such flicks as American Outlaws and The Recruit and The Good Shepherd, he’s due his moment in the spotlight. He at least deserves this chance at a franchise. Also: the red tie is fantabulous.
4. Samuel L. Jackson. He’s basically the coolest, baddest dude ever. And he’s so nice!
5. Nothing says “holiday cheer” like mean streets, an undead vigilante who snarls out greetings including “I’m gonna kill you all kinds of dead,” and a URL such as “MyCityScreams.com.” Merry fuckin’ multiplex Christmas!
