We’ve got a couple new movies for you this weekend – one of which I liked, but you might not, and another that I thought was one of the worst of the year. The Family Luc Besson gives us this dark comedy starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Robert De Niro as the heads of a mafiaContinue reading “Weekend Preview – September 13, 2013”
The Summer may not be over according to the calendar, but it’s over as far as Hollywood is concerned. We’ve only got one new wide release this weekend and it’s not even that big of a film. We’ve also got a limited release sleeper hit expanding to wide release, and an earlier film I hatedContinue reading “Weekend Preview – September 7, 2013”
Sorry to say, there’s not much good coming out this holiday weekend. The good news, however, is that there are a number of worthwhile movies that you’ll have a second chance to catch on the big screen if you missed them the first time around. One Direction: This is Us The band is a phenomenon,Continue reading “Weekend Preview – August 30, 2013”
Three new wide releases and an expansion this weekend, including a couple new favorites. The Mortal Instruments – City of Bones This time period will undoubtedly be remembered in film history as a golden age of young adult adaptations. The Mortal Instruments is the next to grace the big screen with an adaptation of theContinue reading “Weekend Preview – August 23, 2013”
Another busy weekend at the box office – four new wide releases, all of them very different. Jobs Begun at the same time Steve Jobs took a medical leave of absence in 2011, production on this biography started shortly after his death later that year. Starring Ashton Kutcher as the man synonymous with Apple, JobsContinue reading “Weekend Preview – August 16, 2013”
What the Smurf? There’s not much out there this weekend 😦 The Smurfs 2 Starring a good amount of talent who I won’t name for fear of tarnishing their reputations, The Smurfs 2 is the sequel that apparently somebody wanted. I just don’t know who.
As the only new wide release, The Wolverine is poised to win the weekend, which wouldn’t be a bad thing. There are a few other, smaller, films though that are worth your attention also. The Wolverine Have you been waiting for that movie that finally “gets” Wolverine? This is where you expect me to say,Continue reading “Weekend Preview – July 26, 2013”
It’s a busy weekend with four wide releases. Unfortunately, unless you like horror, none of them are really worth your time. RED 2 Before The Expendables, RED (Retired, Extremely Dangerous) brought together aging actors in an outrageous and surprisingly successful action film. After it left theaters, though, I think it left most people’s minds. Continue reading “Weekend Preview – July 19, 2013”
Two major releases this weekend, and it’s easy to choose which to see. Pacific Rim Giant monsters from another dimension are rising from the ocean and attacking Earth. Giant human-piloted fighting robots fight to defend against this onslaught.
The weekend got off to an early start, at least as far as movie studios were concerned, with July 4th falling on a Thursday this year. We’ve got two major family blockbusters, a comedy special (that’s getting great buzz), and an indie flick that chances are is not coming to a theater near you (yet)Continue reading “Weekend Preview – July 5, 2013”
