Conan the Barbarian.  Keep the first twenty minutes, call it Young Conan, and you’ve got a great short.  Add an hour and a half of confused story and bad acting, and you’ve got the new Conan the Barbarian movie.

Fred Koenekamp.  He’s faced the challenge of putting epic-size films on the screen like Patton and Papillon, and  he’s been in the thick of the action on a roller rink in Kansas City Bomber, but maybe the greatest challenge he faced was a bunch of bees on The Swarm!  Part 2 of Jim’s interview with cinematographer Fred Koenekamp.

The Debt.  No, it’s not a movie about your student loan.  Instead, this espionage thriller tells the story of three Mossad agents as they attempt to apprehend a Nazi war criminal.  No word on whether their student loans were ever paid.

Attack the Block.  What do you get when you combine great direction, smart screenwriting, terrific acting, and a budget that’s probably a bit larger than the craft service bill for Super 8?  A surprisingly good film, that’s what.  Remember, if you see only one kids v.s. aliens movie this year, make sure it’s Attack the Block.
