Weekend Update January 29-31

January 26, 2010

“Once again Avatar has a strong chance at a 7th straight week on top, however, Mel Gibson may actually give the film a run for it’s money.  This is the perfect Gibson vehicle, although I do sense a similarity with last years  Taken, about a father and daughter.  That film opened to 24 million and is in a similar theater count and also opened in the same time of the year.. Coincidence?   Maybe.. It will be a close race and it is possible Gibson’s action thriller will win on Friday with Avatar taking Saturday and Sunday for a photo-finish.  This is definitely the film to watch for the weekend”

Watch It

Off And Running, Falling Awake

Netflix It (Off and Running..is the movie a documentary or a movie?  either way, it seems interesting, an adopted girl trying to get in touch with her roots.  Falling Awake is also a coming of age story about a boy who has to decide whether to pursue his music career and falls in love along the way)

When In Rome, The Weathered Underground, Saint John Of Las Vegas

Forget It (The Weathered Underground is supposed to be an interactive film..don’t know how that will work out?  Saint John of Las Vegas looks sad and depressing, while the second big release of the week with Kristen Bell and Josh Duhamel, just seems like the romantic comedy that falls flat with cliche’s and corny dialogue.  I guess if you are fans of either of the two, you could watch the film, but i say forget it!!)

Movies in January

January 1, 2010

“It’s January in Cinema!!  After a record breaking December, its the slow season and its back to school time.  Usually most films in December that arrived in time for Oscar consideration are expanding, but there are some opening to consider.  I Am Legend inspired some.  Stories about the end of humanity and the world falling apart seems to be the theme.  And there are a few b-level comedies and dramas as well but nothing major. So after watching the trailers for these films, here is what you should do.”

Watch It (If you have already watched Avatar 3 or more times and want to try something else)

The Book Of Eli, Daybreakers, Legion, Extraordinary Measures, Edge of Darkness

Netflix It (Wait for it to come on dvd)

Leap Year, Waiting For Armageddon, The Tooth Fairy, When In Rome, The Weathered Underground, The Paranoids, Off and Running, Youth In Revolt

Forget It (Don’t bother, it’s not worth it)

Bitch Slap, Crazy On The Outside, Wonderful World, The Spy Next Door, Saint John Of Las Vegas,
