"Sky Blue" 7, 9, also 1, 3, 5 Sat. Sun
This Korean documentary details the recent decision by the Korean government to actually cel-shade the entire country and its inhabitants. Japan, which only last year switched entirely to CGI, couldn’t be reached for comment.

"Ray" 5:30, 8:15
"Ray" is a symphonic triumph of the soul, which resounds in the brightest of tones throughout the whole of the human experience. Bravo to Cinemagic for keeping the timeless spirit of "Ray" so … timeless.

Clinton Street Theater

"Live Freaky, Die Freaky" 9
In this one, punk rockers from bands like Good Charlotte, Green Day and Blink 182 provide the voices for several punk rock puppets. Beautifully directed by a 15-year-old boy from the Midwest who recently discovered the first Offspring album and thought it was "the most killer shit" he’d ever heard.

Hollywood Theater

"Melvin and Howard" Contact theater for showtimes.
Frankly, the best movie about Howard Hughes ever made. Suck on that, "Aviator." No, not you, Cate.

Moreland Theater
6712 S.E. Milwaukie Ave. 503-236-5257

"Sideways" 5:30, 8:05
This is one of those movies that you will never see, but somehow everyone you know has seen it and insists that you "have to check it out." While I normally respect the opinions of my friends, I have to say that "Sideways" can bite my ass. Seriously, I’m sooo tired of thinking about this piece of shit movie.

Roseway Theater

"Hitch" 5:30, 8, also 3 Sat.
Dear Hitch, you are so fine. I know you are just a character in a movie, but I long for your all-night, steady freaking. Please oh please, become a real human and come rock my shit. I am your biggest fan. I know that I can love you and freak you longer and harder than that lady in the movie. She is nothing, and you are better than that. I will give you forever.
