Friday’s Flicks

The February doldrums continue this week as only three films open, two of which didn’t screen before our deadline, which is just as well. On the up side, Peter O’Toole’s Oscar-nominated vehicle, Venus, finally hits local screens this week.

Opening films (click on grade for review):

Hannibal Rising: Not screened for review

Norbit: Not screened for review

Venus: B

Flick of the Week: Venus

What else could it be, really? The other two have received some of the worst reviews of the young year. And though I’ve yet to see Venus, I’m willing to trust the opinion of colleagues Steven Rosen, who had it as his No. 2 film of 2006, and tt stern-enzi, who makes it clear who he thinks should win the Oscar.
