Theatrical Releases: Marvel’s The Avengers

BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL || On paper, this film looks like something I would not be interested in, but seeing the trailer, there is enough good humor and “exotic” sights to keep me entertained. However, there is too much heavy handed comments about old people and death to make this a generational renowned comedy and interest appeals to the elder, senior retiree community. I … Read More Theatrical Releases: Marvel’s The Avengers

Theatrical Releases: The Five-Year Engagement & The Raven

THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT || Produced by Judd Apatow and directed by Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Get Him To The Greek director Nicholas Stoller, comes another comedy involving weddings. Ranging around the same humor as Bridesmaids but with a much more diverse cast, Jason Segel and Emily Blunt show they have amazing chemistry along with Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, and tons of other comedians. Beyond … Read More Theatrical Releases: The Five-Year Engagement & The Raven

Theatrical Releases: The Lucky One & Chimpanzee

CHIMPANZEE || Disneynature continues to produce quality work, but the marketing of this film is horrible, setting up real-life nature like a bad sitcom. “Caught” on tape for the “first time”, Chimpanzee follows an abandoned chimpanzee who is taken in by a lone chimpanzee. I am curious how this aspect of primate mentality works, but I really can’t justify sitting in a theater and … Read More Theatrical Releases: The Lucky One & Chimpanzee

Theatrical Releases: The Cabin In The Woods & The Three Stooges

THE CABIN IN THE WOODS || By far the most interesting film coming out this weekend, the Joss Whedon produced The Cabin In The Woods is said to revolutionize the horror genre. Coming from the guy that wrote Cloverfield, I am completely convinced it will and with Chris Hemsworth taking on the role of the jock on the trip into the woods, there something … Read More Theatrical Releases: The Cabin In The Woods & The Three Stooges

Theatrical Releases: American Reunion & Titanic 3D

AMERICAN REUNION || As far as I’m concerned, American Reunion cannot make enough money. With the entire cast returning and the Stifmeister back to his ridiculous antics, the writers of this series are back on their game. As Roger Ebert describes in his review of the film, this is like an audience’s reunion with these characters that we grew up with. Having been exposed … Read More Theatrical Releases: American Reunion & Titanic 3D

Theatrical Releases: Transformers: Dark of The Moon

TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON || These films are some absolute favorites of mine, so it really is no surprise that I saw this already on Tuesday night in IMAX 3D. The film was fantastic, despite the piss-poor reviews it is receiving (though they always do). I will be seeing this film again without the 3D and look forward to this film making truckloads … Read More Theatrical Releases: Transformers: Dark of The Moon

Theatrical Releases: Bad Teacher & Cars 2

Tons of films releasing this week, with “Cars 2” probably a shoe-in for raking in the cash both domestically and foreign. “Bad Teacher”, despite its lack of wear-with-all, will assumedly not do too shabby either. Next week, being a holiday week and with “Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon” hitting theaters as early as Tuesday, I feel that I will not be hitting the … Read More Theatrical Releases: Bad Teacher & Cars 2

Theatrical Releases: Green Lantern & Mr. Popper’s Penguins

Again, not a great week for brand new films. The documentaries appear to reign supreme this week and it is a nice shift to have that be the case. There is something for everyone this weekend for the most part, with “Green Lantern” definitely setting up to make some money with the superhero and 3D thing for males, ages 10-30, Ryan Reynolds for the … Read More Theatrical Releases: Green Lantern & Mr. Popper’s Penguins
