Carrie Rickey

Carrie Rickey was born in L.A. around the time the Jennifer Jones/Laurence Olivier movie Carrie hit screens. Hence her name. Since then she's seen more than 12,000 films without losing her love of movies -- or wordplay. But don't envy her job too much. She has to sit through the likes of Battlefield Earth just so she can warn you not to.

In The Skin I Live In, the principal character, Dr. Robert Ledgard (Antonio Banderas, chilling), is a plastic surgeon. Hear him hold forth at a medical conference on the subject of face transplants: "We take shapeless masses and give them expression. We mold the musculature."
A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas had me at the cannabis-shaped snowflakes. They waft from the screen onto the lenses of stereoscopic glasses. Ordinarily one doesn't encounter this unlikely combination of low comedy, high ideals, and cheesy optical effects outside of a head shop.
