American Gangster (November 2): Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe face off in this Ridley Scott-directed film based on the life of ’70s heroin kingpin Frank Lucas. The Denz should be great for a role like this. I like how the cloud of smoke and his stern expression are offset by a graphic of a piece of pie (pictured). Very gangsta.
I Am Legend (December 14): It’s Will Smith’s turn to roam a post-apocalyptic New York, and he does it well. There is tall grass in Times Square. There are abandoned warehouses and free games of golf. There’s a convenient steel frame on which Will Smith can do pull-ups! There are not, however, people…. or are there?
Also, gas will be $7 in five years… if not by this winter.
