Metallica: Some Kind of Monster -- Cool. One of hard rock's most famously tense bands, and studying tense bands is always fascinating stuff. Look at Guns N' Roses. Faith No More, one of the All Time Greatest Bands of All Time, pretty much actively hated each other; and in that tension some of the best albums of the last 20 years were made. I believe it was Spin, in a very rare moment of non-fuckheadedness, that said FNM's Angel Dust was like listening to a band self-destruct on CD. Yeah, this'll be an interesting one. "You don't have to be a fan..." etc.

Stander -- The trailer does a great job of setting mood and a piss-poor job of telling you what the hell the movie's about. From what I understand, this is a movie based on the life of a cop in South Africa who robbed banks on his lunch hour, then came back with his badge on and attempted to "solve" the robberies himself. He got busted, got loose, and became a full-time criminal. The concept of a cop robbing banks on his lunch hour alone is enough to get me in.

Open Water -- Eek. It's like these guys dug into the reptilian segment of my brain to find one of my basest fears, and made a goddamn movie out of it. I'll probably see it for just that reason.
