Tweens will talk about: "Spectacular"
Nolan Gerard Funk (yes, Funk) is coming after you, Zac. In Nickelodeon's original movie musical, the soon-to-be heartthrob plays a too-cool rocker who gets kicked out of his band only to be approached to join the school's show choir. His teardown of jazz hands ensues. Nick wants the cool kids. Disney can have Vanessa Hudgens. (Monday)
Waiting for "Project Runway" to come back? You can talk about: "Eleven Minutes"
The feature documentary follows Jay McCarroll, the eccentric winner of the first season of "Project Runway," as he scrambles to produce a collection for New York's spring 2007 Fashion Week. Dated, but I still love my bright McCarroll bowling-bag-style purse and his story should tide you over until the show's sixth season premieres. (Friday)
Maybe you'll talk about: M. Ward
More goods from the indie folk singer-songwriter, now best known for She & Him, his collaboration with Zooey Deschanel. The "She" guest stars on his latest disc, "Hold On," along with Lucinda Williams and the Decemberists' Rachel Blumberg. The music dude who sits next to me likens Ward to a lost AM radio: "timeless folk pop." If you agree that's a good thing, get excited.(Tuesday)
