While I had to skip a press screening of the latest in the G.I. Joe franchise because of this week’s “Seder” thing, I ended up paying good money to see The Rock fight some bumblebees (really, it was kind of hard to pay attention to what was going on after a while). While I enjoyed it, especially the protracted Ninjas-on-a-mountain bit, the same could not be said for The Host (which I kind of disliked, as can be seen here).

Plus, brief shout-outs about picking fun Passoveasterâ„¢ films to watch during this Equinox-ish time period, including Martin Scorsese’s stunning Last Temptation of Christ, Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments, and, of course, the sheer magnificence that is Jesus Christ Superstar.
