Specials: Cairns and Overstreet Poetry! “Knocked Up.” “All About Adam.” “The Golden Compass.” “Spidey 3.” Helen Mirren. Aronofsky.

Here are a few links I’ve been saving up this week…

Scott Cairns and Anne Overstreet both have poems in the new issue of Relief! Order your copy today!

Ross Douthat on Knocked Up and its (surprising?) lack of talk about abortion. (Updated: Even more.) (Oh, and I just discovered his first post on the movie.)

Peter Chattaway on Disney’s upcoming Adam-and-Eve movie… All About Adam.

Peter’s also keeping an eye on The Golden Compass‘s movie hype, and how director Chris Weitz and company are trying to cover up the Christianity-bashing agenda so obvious in Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.

And his Spider-Man 3 review is finally available.

The important terms in this story: Helen Mirren. Drama. Gaza Strip. Prime Suspect.

The notable terms in this interview: Darren Aronofsky. Noah’s Ark.

    Your Ross Douthat link seems to not work. Could you check it? I would like to see what he has to say about this new Apatow film. Thanks!
