The Must List: June 22, 2007
1. SURF’S UP
Forget marching: Wave riding is the sport of choice for the penguin stars of this goofy CG mockumentary, featuring the voices of Shia LaBeouf, Jeff Bridges, and Jon Heder. Review >
2. DATAROCK DATAROCK, Datarock
This rollicking debut album from a Norwegian geek-rock duo is packed with winks to Devo, Talking Heads, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Review >
3. THE ABORTIONIST’S DAUGHTER, by Elisabeth Hyde
A former U.S. attorney, Hyde brings a judicious eye for detail to this politically charged murder mystery with a killer twist, now in paperback.
4. RESCUE ME
In its fourth season, Denis Leary’s FX dramedy is just as fearless — and scathingly funny — as ever. Review >
5. THE HUSTLER
Here’s your shot…to pick up the new extras-packed Collector’s Edition DVD of the movie that made Paul Newman’s Fast Eddie Felson an icon.
6. KATHY GRIFFIN: MY LIFE ON THE D-LIST
Bravo’s Queen of Cattiness is back for another year of star-bashing stand-up and bitchy beatdowns.
7. EPIPHANY, T-Pain
We’d gladly grab a ”drank” with this Tallahassee, Fla.-bred R&B crooner — if we weren’t so busy listening to hook-loaded tracks like ”Bartender.” And assuming he’d actually ask us…
8. PRIVILEGE AND SCANDAL, by Janet Gleeson
According to this bawdy bio, Diana’s royal exploits couldn’t hold a candle in the wind to the Regency-era randiness of her ancestor, Harriet Spencer.
9. LA VIE EN ROSE
You won’t regret watching Marion Cotillard hit all the right notes playing Edith Piaf in this pitch-perfect Gallic import, costarring Gérard Depardieu. Review >
10. THE POLICE REUNION TOUR
Let’s hope these rockers will be repeat offenders — we can’t stand losing Sting, Andy Summers, and Stewart Copeland for another 23 years. Review >
