WEEKLY WRAP: ‘Island’ sighted, ‘Ghostbusters’ quoted

Leonardo DiCaprio in Shutter IslandA quiet week round these parts — and everywhere else, for that matter:

The week’s biggest talking point was the unveiling of the first trailer for Scorsese’s “Shutter Island.” Still mopping the drool from the floor.

We celebrated the quarter-century (!) anniversary of “Ghostbusters,” listing the most quotable lines from that eminently quotable film.

Our poll of the most influential films of all time finally wrapped … in rather muted fashion. But hey, democracy rules.

We had the privilege of interviewing the great Francis Ford Coppola.

This week’s Page to Screen examined “Playing the Enemy,” the inspiration for Clint Eastwood’s upcoming “Invictus.”

In a rare last-minute coup, “The Hangover” stole “Up’s” thunder at the box office.

The 30th anniversary of John Wayne’s passing provided the impetus to wallow in The Duke’s finest screen moments.

And finally, yours truly dipped his toe into the murky waters of Oscar predictions.
