Movie Diary 2/28/2011

Beastly (Daniel Barnz, 2011). Beauty and the Beast, done with teens and Neil Patrick Harris. Aren’t they releasing this a little early for the Oscars? (full review 3/4)

Carbon Nation (Peter Byck, 2010). Of all the global-warming movies, possibly the sprightliest in tone. Still, we’re screwed. (full review 3/4)

Of course, there were also the Oscars. I go over the ceremony and its strange randomness Wednesday morning on KUOW’s “Weekday” program, at 10:20, 94.9 FM/

At my other website, What a Feeling!, today’s 1980s obscurity is actually something I like a lot: Sharma and Beyond, one of the titles in David Puttnam’s “First Love” series.
