Movie Diary 5/5/2009

Next Day Air (Benny Boom, 2009). Amongst Guy Ritchie knock-offs, this must be one of the more respectable efforts, including anything Guy Ritchie has done since Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The movie looks awful (sorry, Mr. Boom), but the deft actors hit some great herb-fueled rhythms in the many dialogue scenes: Donald Faison, Mike Epps, Wood Harris, and Mos Def among them. Yasmin Deliz will be heard from in future, too.  (full review 5/8)
