Not much happening on the movie front this week -- everybody's on vacation, nothing new is coming out, and most people are still catching up on the raft of new flicks from last week.
But us hard-working unemployed film critics are still at it with a few offerings during the dull period.
I'll have a Reeling Backward essay on "Across the Pacific," a 1942 war propaganda film starring Humphrey Bogart, Sydney Greenstreet and Mary Astor.
The video review will be "9" -- the animated film, not the musical that came out a few days ago.
And Wednesday, get ready for the big one: My Top 10 List for 2009.
