The Must List: September 28, 2007
1. BROTHERS & SISTERS premiere
ABC, bring on the drama! Justin’s in Iraq…while Calista Flockhart’s Kitty frets over what to wear for her wedding to the senator (Rob Lowe). Priorities, woman. Priorities!
2. GOOD BAD NOT EVIL, Black Lips
Notorious for their raffish live performances, the drunk and disorderlies of this Atlanta-based foursome have assembled an alternately ramshackle and melodic garage-rock gem.
3. AGENT ZIGZAG, by Ben Macintyre
Nazi spook. MI5 agent. Noöl Coward’s homey. The story of Eddie Chapman is a thrilling if improbable one — and it just happens to be true.
4. BEN FOSTER in ‘3:10 to Yuma’
A lot of guns are fired in this Western remake (starring Russell Crowe and Christian Bale), but none more ruthlessly than by Foster’s explosive cowboy.
5. “THE GOOD LIFE” video
Kanye West’s love letter to moolah comes to “Life” with an assist from omnipresent R&B crooner T-Pain and his vocoder, plus some Crayola-colored graphics.
6. LIFE OF RYAN
Teen skateboarder Ryan Sheckler grapples with emerging fame and familial upheaval in this MTV reality series. The twist: It’s actually touching.
Nefarious aliens abscond! Special agent Captain Jack — who’s bisexual and from the 51st century — is on the case in this delightful Doctor Who spin-off on BBC America.
8. THE COMPLETE MANUAL OF THINGS THAT MIGHT KILL YOU
Or a guide to how an innocent body ache of yours could go horribly wrong. Hypochondriacs: that itch you’re feeling to read this book? Could be anthrax.
9.GREAT WORLD OF SOUND
Two chumps employed at a fraudulent label give heart to this searing, satiric film about the music business.
10. THE BUFFY MUSICAL EXTRAVAGANZA
Nerd out with your local Scooby Gang (Rocky Horror-style) at this touring, big-screen viewing of the vamp series’ singalong episode. (uncoolkidscom/buffy)
