Movies This Week: One Grey Albert Ledge
Busy tonight? Blue Starlite Urban Drive-In has a triple-feature of 80s teen films for you: Pretty in Pink, Say Anything and Sixteen Candles.
On Sunday, you can join the TXMPA SAG Awards party, including a red carpet and pre-show mixer at ND at 501 Studios. On Monday, if you think "the Dude abides" you can check out the Big Lebowski Quote-along at Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar.
Then on Tuesday, you can catch a classic cautionary tale of love, lust and the consequences of confusing the two in F.W. Murnau's 1927 epic Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans as part of the AFS Essential Cinema Series. And the Paramount Winter Comedy Series continues this week, including a special Shaun of the Dead Pub Run and screening on Tuesday.
Movies We've Seen:

The Grey (pictured at top) -- A plane crash in Alaska pits man against wolf and when the man is Liam Neeson, it's no surprise it was a big hit at Butt-Numb-a-Thon in December. Mike saw it at BNAT and says, "The Grey is bitter, bleak and absolutely beautiful. The ultimate man vs. nature film." (wide)
Other Movies Opening in Austin:
One for the Money -- Based on Janet Evanovich's popular novel, the bad news is it stars Katherine Heigl as a recent divorcee who goes to work for her cousin's bail-bond business ... but the good news is Jason O'Mara is also in it. (wide)
