Afternoon Delight
Anytime Johnny Depp is making a movie that doesn't require feathers or gaudy makeup we're interested, and thus "Black Mass" has our full attention. And the cast for Scott Cooper's film just keeps getting better and better.

Liam Neeson Gangs Of New York
Huh. We've gotten so used to Liam Neeson cashing paychecks and cracking skulls that it's easy to forget he's an Academy Award-nominated actor (for his turn in "Schindler's List"). And while he did dial it down a bit for Paul Haggis' abysmal "Third Person" which premiered at TIFF last fall, for the most part, we just think of Neeson these days as filling time with one generic thriller after another (e.g. the upcoming "Non-Stop" and the soon-to-be-filming "Taken 3"). But it looks he'll have a chance to remind everyone that he has other special skills that don't involve punching people in the groin.

Out Of The Furnace
AFI Film Festival premiered Scott Cooper's "Out of the Furnace" over the weekend, and we were there. And the verdict? Well, according to Charlie Schmidlin, the film starts strong but loses power by time the third act rolls around, essentially "creating a complexity rather than letting its characters show us one." Still, for those of waiting anxious to see the film nonetheless, it's still one high on our watch list before the end of the year and another look at the movie is keeping up that excitement.
