Total Recall: Halloween Director Rob Zombie's Favorites
Under the "Hellbilly Deluxe" trappings, Rob Zombie is a true cinephile at heart: he's as likely to find inspiration in the works of Martin Scorsese and Sam Peckinpah as he is in the grimy world of low-rent 1970s drive-in fare. True, Zombie looks to the dark side for inspiration, but he's also informed by works with gallows humor.

Critical Consensus: "Red Eye," "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" Soar
This week at the movies brings four studies in aviation. What happens when you're trapped on a plane with a creepy seatmate? (See "Red Eye.") Is it ever too late for Cupid's arrows to take flight? (Check out "The 40 Year-Old Virgin.") Were the unsung heroes of the Allies in WWII? pigeons? ("Valiant," this one's for you.) Isn't it cool when those Supercross dudes, like, totally go up in the air, and like, for a few seconds, y'know, it looks like they're, like, flying? (Ahem?."Supercross: The Movie.") And most important of all: which of these flicks will fly with the critics?

A Cursed Weekend at the Movies
This weekend must be cursed. The two major releases -- ?Cursed? and ?Man of the House? -- were either not screened for critics or not screened in time for them to make Friday?s morning press. So don?t blame us for the lack of reviews for those two films. Clearly, the studios are trying to hide the quality of their movies, or lack there of, with marketing dollars before critics can get a chance to alert the public.
