Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin' About Him?)





This feature documentary focuses on the brilliant, but eccentric, late singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. The Beatles once proclaimed Nilsson as "their favorite group," and he was on top of the world in the early '70s, courted by the elite of popular music and film.

He was riding the crest of a remarkable wave of success. Yet, in just a few short years, his glorious voice would be in tatters, his health ruined and he would be without a record contract.

Kings of Pastry





Imagine a scene never before witnessed: Sixteen French pastry chefs gathered in Lyon for three intense days of mixing, piping and sculpting everything from delicate chocolates to six-foot sugar sculptures in hopes of being declared by President Nicolas Sarkozy one of the best.

This is the prestigious Meilleurs Ouvriers de France competition (Best Craftsmen in France).

The blue, white and red striped collar worn on the jackets of the winners is more than the ultimate recognition for every pastry chef – it is a dream and an obsession.

The film follows chef Jacquy Pfeiffer, co-founder of Chicago’s French Pastry School, as he journeys back to his childhood home of Alsace to practice for the contest.

Expecting has an incredible cast, but I'm not that
interested.

Logan looks like the best of these, but I'll wait for
the dvd.

I agree. 3D makes me queasy, too. I'll stick to 2D, also.

I am a huge fan of Resident Evil, so I will definitely see this movie in theatres, but not in 3D.

I want to see Resident Evil Afterlife.

Anyone else go... "Uh....Hrmmmm" to I'm Still Here?

A hip hop musician? He looks like he's gunning to be the 4th Member of ZZ Top. :oP
