Happy Friday all, another week has gone by and another weekend is here with new releases for your eyeballs and eardrums (cause cinema is both audio and visual... get it..). There's a nice little salad bar of items to choose from, so just make sure you choose the right one and not a re-release of a bad movie in 3D. That's never the right choice.

“Chico & Rita,” a now Oscar-nominated animated co-production from Spain and the U.K., is a film for which “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” simply doesn’t suffice. We certainly endorse its nomination in the often drab, studio-laden Best Animated Feature category, where Pixar often deservedly runs away with the statue, and has the last four years in a row (but not this year as “Cars 2” was thankfully snubbed). But we can’t in good conscience admit to outright loving the film, much as it seems to be tailor-made for The Playlist, with music – Cuban jazz, specifically – being its crux.
