Elitist Bastards: The Nexus of Mae West And Step Up 3D

In this week’s Elitist Bastards Go To The Movies, Xpress film critics Ken Hanke and Justin Souther: consider the surprise revelation that Step Up 3D is tolerable when taken on its own terms, The Other Guys is passable, The Girl Who Played With Fire suffers from a touch of sequelitis, The Killer Inside Me is both likely to earn condemnation and praise, and that Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky can’t quite maintain the quality. They also discuss Guillermo del Toro’s Cronos, this week’s Thursday Horror Picture Show, and the Mae West double feature that makes up next week’s Asheville Film Society screening. And they even have a brief moment to ponder soon-to-open films Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, The Expendables and Eat Pray Love.

    I believe Jeremy outdid himself on the photo, which is perhaps the most horrifying thing I’ve ever seen, though I will say it makes me look younger.
