Her loved ones and friends begin to question her sanity. Sydney believes someone may have opened more then her eyes to a world only she can see…(Rated: PG-13 Drama/Horror/Thriller) [This seems like it might be a bit of a stretch for a movie ticket purchase for this girl. Although, I know the seats will be filled with strapping young lads who love them some Alba! I'll pass and maybe catch it on a movie channel in due time on some lonely night.]
Strange Wilderness – Starring: Steve Zahn, Allen Covert, Justin Long, Jonah Hill, Kevin Heffernan, Krista Allen. Animal enthusiast Peter Gaulk and his friend Fred Wolf take over a “jumped the shark” wildlife TV show. The ratings start to dip and the show is facing cancellation. In a desperate attempt to save the show, they set out to find the one creature that could bring the show back to life…they seek “Bigfoot.” (Rated: R – Comedy) [I am convinced Hollywood is now drawing ideas out of a tall hat or using the rock/scissors/paper method to determine new movie plots...ugh. Maybe I'm missing something here? This would work for a drunken game night playing in the back ground kinda movie viewing pleasure.]
Over Her Dead Body – Starring: Eva Longoria Parker, Paul Rudd, Lake Bell,Jason Biggs, Lindsay Sloane, Stephen Root. Devastated by the death of his fiancee, Kate, who their wedding day, Henry agrees to see a psychic(at the urging of his sister) to see if he can contact Kate to come to terms with her passing.

The Silence before Bach : “This is an approach to music and the trades and the subjects that surround it through Bach’s works.
