So the other day I go to look up what new films have opened in the Lodi/Stockton area over the weekend, and what do I find? “Burlesque” and “The Warrior’s Way.” If you’re not familiar with these titles, let it suffice to say that these are not the kinds of films one would either hope or expect to see opening in the month of December, when the air is supposed to be heavy with Oscar buzz.

Things have gotten so bad lately that no self-respecting moviegoer would be caught dead in a multiplex these past few weeks, unless to see the new “Harry Potter” flick. So what’s to be done? There’s always the art houses, but even they aren’t offering much these days (“127 Hours” is showing at Tower in Sacramento, but I think I’ll wait a couple weeks for it to open wider).
