Movies This Weekend! 12/19/08

December 17, 2008 by Joe · Leave a Comment 

It’s about to get really crowded in theatres… well, at least in terms of product. If you’re closer to a smaller location, you might want to go check out that movie before it leaves the theatre because that’s bound to happen a lot sooner now that we’ve got more movies. Three this week (in wide release), then a few more on Christmas day… which doesn’t leave much room for older movies. Let’s take a look at what’s going to be offered on Friday. I think it’s a pretty strong slate actually. It’ll definitely make things interesting for the Christmas holiday in terms of what people choose to go see.

The Tale of Desperaux, Directed by Sam Fell, Rated G

In the kingdom of Dor, there used to be magic in the air, laughter, and anything you could possibly want. However, a terrible accident left the king broken-hearted, and the kingdom became despondent. Hope in the world was lost, and everything became grey. Then Desperaux Tilling was born. A small mouse, he cannot stand to be confined in his world, and is banished when he refuses to follow the rules expected of a mouse. He refuses to be weak, despite being wheezy and having oversized ears. He soon meets up with Roscuro, a fellow outcast; a rat who refuses to live in the underground like his kind. Together, they embark on a noble quest to change the way their world is.

Yes Man, Directed by Peyton Reed, Rated PG-13

Carl Allen was never one to say yes to anything. He lived a sheltered life, avoiding anything that could possibly be bad. However, when he signs up for a self-help program that is solely based around saying “yes” to everything, he finds that his life can be changed in amazing and crazy ways. However, he also discovers that it’s not always good to open your life to endless possibilities.

Seven Pounds, Directed by Gabriele Muccino, Rated PG-13

Will Smith is reunited with the directors and producers of The Pursuit of Happyness in this emotional drama. Ben Thomas is an IRS agent with a secret, and must embark on a journey of redemption. On his way, he will seek to forever change the lives of seven strangers, a task he must complete in order to obtain redemption.

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

As I mentioned before, these are very strong films. We’ve got a good children’s movie coming out in Desperaux, a serious drama in Seven Pounds, and a comedy in Yes Man. Basically, if there’s something you want to see or take someone to, you’ve got options this weekend. However, with how close it is to Christmas, and all those gift cards yet to be distributed, I think that we’ll be disappointed at the Box. I’m going to go with Seven Pounds in the number one spot, only because its hard to bet against Will Smith recently. Desperaux will follow that in my rankings, and Yes Man will finish in third of the wide releases.

What do you plan on seeing this weekend? Or will you just wait for Christmas?

Movies This Weekend! 12/12/08

December 9, 2008 by Joe · 1 Comment 

We’re getting closer to the holidays, and yes, the holiday movies are starting to come in. One movie that’s supposed to be huge, a kids movie, and another holiday movie. Yep, that’s right…. another holiday movie. I’m actually pretty happy about that because it’s what people are looking for around this time of year. It may be corny, but christmas and holiday movies tend to do well around the holiday they are about! Let’s take a closer look at what’s in store for moviegoers this weekend:

Delgo, Directed by Jason Maurer, Rated PG

The land of Jhamora is inhabited by two peoples who are extremely prejudiced against each other. There are the Nohrin, winged masters of the skies, and the Lockni, who live on the land, and have harnessed it’s powers. Delgo is a reckless Lockni teenager who develops a forbidden friendship with Kyla, the Nohrin Princess. When their people find out about their friendship, hostilities rise. In this time of trouble, the old exiled empress takes the opportunity to reclaim her lost throne. Delgo is imprisoned falsely, but to escape, he must put aside his differences and join forces with his enemy, travelling through the land of Perran.

Nothing Like the Holidays, Directed by Rick Najera, Rated PG-13

The Rodriguez family is coming home to Chicago to celebrate the holidays, and the return of their youngest brothers from combat overseas. Each one in the family has their own issues to deal with. Returning home, Jesse finds his feelings for an old flame rekindled, while his sister has been trying to acheive her goal of becoming an actress for years with nothing to show for it. To top things off, the oldest Rodriguez son has brought home an executive wife, much to the dismay of his mother. When their mother reveals that she will be divorcing their father, the three siblings begin to think about their past a reconsider their futures. Suddenly, when one of them is faced with a real life crisis, the entire family pulls together, and discover that they are much stronger than they ever realized.

The Day the Earth Stood Still, Directed by Scott Derrickson, Rated PG-13

A remake of a 1951 sci-fi classic. Keanu Reeves plays an alien who comes to Earth, trying to convince them that they need to save their world. An unstoppable robot is dispatched to Earth, and only one phrase stands in it’s way “Klatuu Barad Nikto”. Fans of the old film will be glad to see that this made it into the movie, but you’ll have to listen carefully to hear it!

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

I think that there are three strong films coming out this weekend. Four Christmases should be dethroned as the number one movie this week, especially with a second holiday movie in Nothing Like the Holidays. The advantage that Four Christmases has is that its a comedy and is easier to watch (comedies are generally easier to watch, in my opinion), than Nothing Like the Holidays should be. We’ve also got a potential blockbuster in The Day the Earth Stood Still. A lot of sci-fi fans should be heading out to see if this compares at all to the original. I’m actually pretty interested in that movie, so I’m going to try to check it out, but I’ve got plenty of catching up to do as well.

I’m also really far behind on the Christmas shopping… will you make it to the movies this weekend?

Movies This Weekend! 12/4/08

December 2, 2008 by Joe · 5 Comments 

After a pretty big box office last weekend, will this week be able to match or even top it? If I had to give my opinion (and I’m going to), I don’t think so. We do have a few films that could make some noise, but I think that last week’s offerings were better. Let’s take a look at what we have to look forward to this weekend!

Cadillac Records, Directed by Darnell Martin, Rated R

A film that explores the rise of Chess Records and the artists that rose to fame with it. Leonard Chess, a young Polish emigrant hires a talented blues duo. Fascinated by the sounds they produce, and wanting to get in on the lucrative recording industry, Chess arranges a recording session for Muddy Waters, one of the two he hired. Waters’ initial recordings make their way up the R+B chart, and he becomes a success.

Chess tries to treat all his artists like family, buying them a Cadillac when they record their first hit. However, conflicts of interests between all his artists begin to cause issues with his increasingly talented prodigies. Soon, all of his artists are displaying their troubles, and trying to stay united while more and more scandals become revealed to them. As Rock n Roll begins to rise, Chess’s artists try to move on as they are taken over by other popular artists. However, each of them has lost a small fortune trying to live the high life, yet their spirit remains strong. Chess eventually moves on and gets out of the record industry, but the blues live on.

I can’t even write this synopsis with any justice to the film without revealing too much! Sorry!

Yes, I know its the wrong poster.

Yes, I know its the wrong poster.

Nobel Son, Directed by Randall Miller, Rated R

A tale of familial dysfunction, betrayal, lust, and all that other good stuff. Barkley Michaelson is trying to finish his PhD thesis when his father wins the Nobel prize. However, his father’s past begins to catch up with him when Barkley is kidnapped on the even of the Nobel being accepted. His father refuses to pay the ransom to free his son. Soon, however, he will learn that payback is quite the b*tch.

Punisher: War Zone, Directed by Lexi Alexander, Rated R

Frank Castile continues to wage his war on the world of organized crime, setting his target on mob boss Billy Russoti. After Russoti is left disfigured by Castile, he begins his plan for revenge as a new man, Jigsaw. With Russoti’s men hot on his trail, and the FBI not able to bring in Jigsaw, Castile must stand up for himself to the army that is after him, to ensure that good will prevail.

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

I’m kinda surprised that with this being the holiday season, that studios would decide to release 3, count em, 3, rated R movies. Do they not understand the atmosphere of the holiday season? I may be wrong, but I really think that a movie like Four Christmases was perfect for the time. Do people really want a couple of heart-wrenching tragedies or an action thriller about someone who is trying to fight an army of darkness? I don’t think so. That being said, because they’re new films, they’ll at least crack the top 10… but don’t be surprised to find those theatres less full than those for Bolt and Four Christmases.

What do you think… do you agree with me?

Been slacking again as usual.. but when you’ve got so many good movies out (or popular, rather), and you work at a theatre, you end up being busy.  I’ve actually tried to get some stuff out, have quite a few reviews to write, but I am getting old and can’t force myself to stay up late anymore.  This week will definitely be more of the same, but I’m going to write a whole bunch of stuff tonight and time it out so that I’ll have at least a post a day… I hope.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know exactly what movies come out this week.  This post is for those of you who have been living under a rock! :-D

Bolt, Directed by Chris Williams, Rated PG

No day is ever normal for Super dog Bolt… that is until the cameras stop rolling.  When Bolt is accidentally shipped to New York City from his hollywood stage, he must begin an adventure to make his way back home to his co-star and owner, Penny.  Armed with just stories and delusions that his powers are real, Bolt discovers that he doesn’t need superpowers to be a hero.  Two companions join him on his journey, a jaded housecat named Mittens, and the TV-Obsessed hampster, Rhino.

Twilight, Directed by Catherine Hardwicke, Rated PG-13

A modern day love story between a vampire and a teenage girl. Bella Swan has always been a bit different, and has never tried to fit in at her trendy high school.  When her mom remarries, Bella is sent to live with her father in Washington.  At her new school, she meets Edward Cullen, who is unlike anyone she has ever met.  He is a vampire, but his family chooses to drink no human blood.  What Edward sees in Bella is someone he has waited 90 years for: a soul mate.  However, their plans may all change when a new clan of vampires moves into town.

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

Busy Busy Busy!!! As I already wrote over at Film School Rejects, the crowds are already beginning to line up to catch the Twilight this weekend.  I’m guessing that by now, there are probably about 450 shows that are already sold out nationwide.  If you want to check out Twilight or Bolt this weekend, I’d suggest buying tickets in advance, and be prepared to deal with the plenty of teenage girls and kids that are going to be there along with you.  It’s gonna be crazy.  Like.. Harry Potter crazy, except with all 13-14 year old girls.  Maybe Sex and the City crazy, with much younger girls.

By the way, the “A” key on my keyboard keeps getting stuck.  I should plug in my other one.

I’m going to be checking out a movie on Thursday night… what will it be that I see?!?!! Are you planning on braving the crowds this weekend?

This past weekend was definitely a busy one, and it looks like the cinemas will be making strong steps towards the holiday season. It even feels a bit like the summer blockbuster season, with only one major release this week. It’s that “I don’t really want to compete with that movie” week I think. Let’s take a look:

Quantum of Solace PosterJames Bond: Quantum of Solace, Directed by Marc Foster, Rated PG-13

Taking place just hours after Casino Royale, Bond looks to avenge the death of Vesper, the woman he loved, and also the woman who betrayed him. Fighting the urge to make his next mission not personal, Bond learns from the captured Mr. White that the organization that plotted to steal Bond’s winnings is much more dangerous and expansive than they could have imagined. Tracking intelligence throughout the globe, Bond must try to prevent an environmental group and “The Quantum” from achieving their goal, and avenge the death of Vesper.

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

I’m imagining that it’s going to be very busy this weekend. Will the down economy prevent Quantum from bringing in $100 million? I’m going to say yes… however that’s not to say that it won’t be busy this weekend… you’re going to want to buy tickets in advance and show up early in order to get good seats. From what I can see over at Rotten Tomatoes, Quantum has had pretty good reviews… which is great!

I must say that this is a short movie… less than two hours with previews, which is disappointing. I will be sure to let you know what I think of it as soon as I see it… which should be tomorrow!

Don’t wait. Guarantee your seat before you go and avoid a sold out show.

The Feature Returns!! After a couple week hiatus (in which I actually wrote this post but never actually published it), we’re back to take a look at the movies coming out this weekend in wide release, and to see what the weekend is shaping up to be like. I’m still in movie catch up mode, and this week does help a little bit. We’ve got one film that I think will rock the box office, but the other two are hit or miss. Let’s take a look, shall we?

Madagascar PosterMadagascar: Escape 2 Africa, Directed by Eric Darnell & Tom McGrath, Rated PG

After escaping from New York City, the pack is back for more as they head off the Island and try to find their way to Africa. Returning are the voices that made the first feature, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric the Entertainer, and Andy Richter. Hilarity is guaranteed as they embark on a new adventure.

Role Models, Directed by David Wain, Rated R

Paul Rudd and Seann William Scott play a couple of guys who are not even close to what one would consider a role model. However, their antics put them in trouble with the law, and now they are forced to be mentors to some children as part of their punishment. Watch what happens when these guys try to guide children in the right direction. Unfortunately for them, the kids are a little less than cooperative….

Soul Men, Directed by Malcolm D. Lee, Rated RRole Models Poster

Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson star as former backup singers Louis and Floyd. They travel throughout the country, performing at tribute concerts to their late former band leader. The two, however, have not spoken to each other in years but reluctantly agree to travel together. Will the two be able to make it through the tour?

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

I think this will be a pretty busy weekend. It’s been a few weeks since there’s been a true kids movie that came out, and Madagascar 2 fits the bill perfectly. I think parents will be out with their kids in droves, so this might not be a great weekend to go to the movies if you’re looking for it to be quiet. Soul Men will probably draw a crowd as well, as I believe this is the first on-screen appearance for Bernie Mac since his unfortunate passing. What’s going to hurt the latter two films this weekend (Soul Men and Role Models) is the R rating. It’s quite the killer nowadays.. with kids not bothering with their parents and just buying tickets to other movies then trying to sneak in.

I think that I’ll try to make it to a movie this weekend… I really need to.

Hi All! Back again from a pretty busy (but short) hiatus. I actually probably could have pumped out some posts, but I was trying to focus on some things for my real job(s), and Hockey!! Speaking of which, I will have to start writing about that (::writes note to self::). I should also mention that I don’t like it when people hang up on me while I’m trying to talk to them!!!! (Just kidding, you know I still love ya :-P) In any case, we’ve got four films coming up this week… any blockbusters though? Let’s take a look:

Body of Lies - Directed by Ridley Scott, Rated R

Based on the book of the same name by Washington Post columnist David Ignatius. Roger Ferris, a CIA operative, discovers a terrorist plot operating out of Jordan. Devising a plan to infiltrate the terrorist network, Ferris must first win the backing of CIA veteran Ed Hoffman, and the trust of the head of the Jordanian intelligence. Despite the fact that they are considered his allies, Ferris questions how much he can really trust these men.

City of Ember PosterCity of Ember - Directed by Gil Kenan, Rated PG

The people of the City of Ember have fluorished in an amazing world of glittering lights for years. Located underground, it was built as a refuge for humanity, powered by a generator designed to power the city for 200 years. Despite growing concern over the life of the generator and the future of their city, the students of the City of Ember find themselves confronting the next milestone in their lives. It is Assignment Day, where the students will choose, by lottery, how they will serve society for the rest of their lives.

Lina, a student, hopes for nothing more than to become a messenger, draws a job in the pipeworks. Her classmate, Doon Harrow, wants to work in the generator, but draws the job of messenger instead. While both are unhappy with their draws, they end up swapping assignments, making both of them happier. When Lina discovers a mysterious box in a closet, her grandmother is overjoyed, letting Lina know that the information is important, but that she can’t remember why. Feeling that the information could be what saves their city, Lina and Doon follow the cryptic messages inside, manuvering around corrupt politicians and other obstacles to see if their hunch is right.

The Express PosterThe Express - Directed by Gary Fleder, Rated PG

A film about the true story of Ernie Davis, the first black football player to win the coveted Heisman Trophy. This inspirational story shows the obstacles Davis faced both on the field and off as he led the Syracuse Orangemen with help from coach Ben Schwartzwalder.

Quarantine PosterQuarantine - Directed by John Erick Dowdle, Rated R

Angela Vidal and her cameraman are both assigned to spend a night shift with an LA Fire Station. A routine 911 call leads them to a small apartment building, with police already on the scene in response to blood curdling screams coming from inside one of the units. What they don’t know is that a few of the residents have been infected with a rare strain of rabies. After a few of the residents are viciously attacked, they try to escape with the news crew, only to find that the building has been quarantined, and they are cut off, with no information being passed to those inside the building.

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

Looks like a pretty strong weekend… I want to see City of Ember and Quarantine definitely, but I’m afraid I’m going to be occupied with the Ice Breaker Tournament in Boston. In any case, the slate looks to be pretty crowded, but I’m pretty sure with these films, you can pretty much assume that Beverly Hills Chihuahua is not going to be able to hold on for another week.

I’m guessing with the weather cooling down, the box office will cool down a bit. There’s a lot of playoff baseball (Go RED SOX), Football, and other things going on throughout the country, but then again, I thought that would affect things last week too. I’m going with City of Ember for the number 1 spot… because it’s probably best for kids. Let’s see if I’m right this time!!

What do you plan on seeing this weekend?

September 30, 2008 by Joe · Leave a Comment 

Ahhhh! I have sooo much catching up of movies to do, and this upcoming weekend certainly does not help. Again, we’ve got a full slate of movies being released, and they look quite enticing. 7 films, to be exact! Hopefully I’ll be able to find some time to make it to the theatre, but I know that this weekend is going to be quite busy, especially with the beginning of BU hockey. Oh.. I’m going to be starting up my BU hockey blog again soon, you can check it out here: Let’s Go Terriers!

In any case, onto the movies:

An American Carol - Directed by David Zucker, Rated PG-13

In a satire that takes aim at the left, Kevin Farley plays Michael Malone, a documentary director who wants to abolish the fourth of July. However, he is visited bythree spirits, who get him to begin to change his anti-American ways.

Appaloosa - Directed by Ed Harris, Rated R

Ed Harris’ western opens wide this weekend. Based on Robert P. Parker’s novel, this film follows a pair of lawmen who unite over their town’s crisis, even as they are divided by their love of the same woman.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua PosterBeverly Hills Chihuahua - Directed by Raja Gosnell, Rated PG

Chloe is a pampered Beverly Hills Chihuahua who finds herself accidentally lost in the streets of Mexico without anyone she knows in sight. Alone for the first time in her life, she must rely on some unexpected friends to help her out and give her the strength to make the journey back home.

Blindness - Directed by Fernando Meirelles, Rated R

When a plague of blindness suddenly devastates a city, a small group affected by the plague bind together to overcome the terrible conditions of their quarantine. Starring Julianne Moore, who previously starred in City of God, an apocalyptic thriller also about the fragility of mankind.

Flash of Genius PosterFlash of Genius - Directed by Marc Abraham, Rated PG-13

Nick and Norah PosterNick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist - Directed by Pter Sollet, Rated PG-13

A comedy about two people who are thrust together for one sleepless night of adventure in a world of mix tapes, late-night living, and loud, live music. Nick is a regular in New York’s rock scene, nursing a broken heart, while Norah is questioning all her assumptions about the world. The two have nothing in common except their taste in music, which leads them to their all night quest to find a legendary band’s secret show. It ends up becoming the first date in a romance which could change both their lives.

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

Phew!!!! I finally got through all that. Now I just need to get through and find images for all the posters, if I can. I have to say that my top choice for this weekend is How to Lose Friends and Alienate People simply because I’m obsessed with Megan Fox. Man, she’s a fox. Number 2 for me would be Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, because I’ve been liking the work Michael Cera has been doing, especially in Juno. After that, I’d have to say it’s An American Carol… not too sure about stuff after that, though I have a feeling I’ll end up seeing Beverly Hills Chihuahua before any of my top picks!

Still got a lot of catching up to do in terms of movies I’d like to see.. I might try to catch a flick on Wednesday to clear up the backlog a little bit. As for business this weekend, I see it picking up. We’ve got a lot of quality, but the sheer quanitity still makes me think that the top movie will make less than $30 Million. Now don’t quote me on that, I’m no expert, it’s just how I see it!

What about you… what do you want to see this weekend?

Don’t wait. Guarantee your seat before you go and avoid a sold out show.

Movies This Weekend! 9/26/08

September 25, 2008 by Joe · Leave a Comment 

Hey All! As promised, the Movies This Weekend will actually be out on time this week late this week! This gives you two whole days 1.5 days (two really) to decide which of the tasty new morsels you’ll be checking out at the theatre this weekend. Here we go!

Eagle Eye PosterEagle Eye, Directed by D.J. Caruso, Rated PG-13

A race against time thriller. Jerry Shaw and Rachel Hollomon are drawn together by a mysterious phone callf from a woman they don’t know. She threatens their lives and the lives of their family, and uses this to push them through a serious of dangerous situations, tracking their every move.

Miracle at St. Anna, Directed by Spike Lee, Rated R

Based on a Nicholas Sparks Novel (The Notebook, Message in a Bottle) Diane Lane and Richard Gere portray the story of an unhappily married woman and a conflicted man drawn together by the city of Rodanthe, North Carolina.

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

We’ve got a couple films this week that have the potential to be big hits. Some of the people at work are saying they can’t wait to see Eagle Eye, which would personally be my pick for #1 this week. Shia knows how to make a movie, and bring people to it. It would help to have some Megan Fox though… My choice for #2 would be Miracle at St. Anna, because of the draw of Spike Lee. I’ve also heard a lot of commercials touting it as the best movie of the year so far… so that might be a good indication as well. As for the other two, I hadn’t really heard too much about them, but there was a pretty positive reaction from a screening of Fireproof at the theatre last week.

All that searching and Movie Poster only had one of these posters?

Anyway, I don’t quite think we’re getting back to those really busy weekends yet, but we’re heading closer. What do you plan to see this weekend?

Movies This Weekend! 9/19/08

September 17, 2008 by Joe · 1 Comment 

Hey all… had a bit of a disaster last night at work, and when I got home I really wanted to watch House, so apologies for not getting this out yesterday. We’ve got a pretty good slate of movies being released this week, and speaking of slates, are there any interested in Movie Moguls? If you saw my recent post on it, you’ll see that the results were really close last time and it got pretty intense, even with just two studios. Anyone interested? In any case, lets get to the movies this weekend:

Ghost Town, Directed by David Koepp, Rated PG-13

Ricky Gervais plays a man who dies during an operation. After the procedure, he finds that he can now see ghosts, and they’re haunting him with all of their issues. Because of this, he finds a new appreciation for life.

Igor, Directed by Tony Leondis, Rated PG

Igor PosterIn a land of mad scientists and diabolical inventions, Igor is born. He’s different, because of the hunch on his back. This twist on the classic horror movie has Igor, a lowly assistant with a dream. He wants to be more than just an assistant. He wants to be a scientist. When his master kicks the bucket a week before the annual Evil Science Fair, Igor gets his chance. With the help of a couple of his friends, Igor sets out to create the most evil invention of all time, a huge, ferocious monster. However, he ends up creating Eva, a giant actress who wouldn’t hurt a fly. Just as he’s about to give up, Igor and his friends discover an evil plot that threatens their world, and must fight to save their world, proving that anyone can become a hero.

Lakeview Terrace, Directed by Neil LaBute, Rated PG-13

Lakeview Terrace PosterA young couple has just moved into their dream home when they become the target of their next door neighbor, who disapproves of their interracial relationship. Unfortunately for the couple, he is a tightly wound single father, who is also on the LAPD. The self-appointed watchdog for the community, his nightly foot patrols and overly watchful eyes bring comfort to some, but increasingly harrassing to the new couple. These intrusions ultimately turn tragic when the couple decides to fight back.

My Best Friend’s Girl, Directed by Howard Deutch, Rated R

Tank is a master at seducing and offending women. He specializes in taking other guys’ ex-girlfriends on the worst date of their lives, an experience so terrible they go running back to their exes. When Tank’s best friend gets dumped by his girlfriend, he gratefully offers his help. However, Alexis is the first one to call his bluff, and Tank finds himself torn between his loyalty to his best friend, and his love for Alexis.

Joe’s Weekend Outlook

I don’t think that any of these movies stand out that much, but there are definitely some that I want to see. First choice is probably…. Lakeview Terrace. Just something about Samuel L. Jackson that makes me want to see the movie. It looks like it could be funny and have a good story at the same time. Second is… I’ll admit it, My Best Friend’s Girl. I really have a thing for Kate Hudson, and I’ll admit that I’ve seen most of her movies. The other two don’t interest me too much, but I’ll probably take a gander at Igor. Well.. I might see Ghost Town too.. it could be funny. Ok I really like going to movies, gimme a break! What are you guys headed out to see this weekend?
