The program for the 2010 Edinburgh Film Festival is finally here! Some noteworthy films to see are "Get Low" starring Robert Duvall and Bill Murray, along with the comedic documentary "The People vs. George Lucas," what looks to be a British "Team America" called "Jackboots on Whitehall." Other ones that stood out are "Cherry Tree Lane," "HIGH School" and "brilliantlove."

The opening night film, "The Illusionist," still looks like a great start, and "Toy Story 3" will have its special 3-D gala screening.

The closing night film is a British buddy comedy called "Third Star."

Steven Soderbergh and Werner Herzog's latest films will be appearing.

Sir Patrick Stewart of "Star Trek" and "X-Men" will be there, too.

Simply said, there's a lot of great stuff going on. Some unknown films, some known, directors and appearances all around. With so much happening, I have to get started on planning out my days at the festival as soon as possible.

Only time will tell what films are the big hits that must be seen for sure.

So, here's to June 16 when Sylvain Chomet's "The Illutionist" kicks things off!

See you then.
