Movie Round-Up: May 29nd, 2009


It’s Pixar, and as of yet I have not hated a single one of their movies.  Sure, Cars wasn’t the greatest movie of all time, but it was certainly better than most other kid and family movies to come out.  So, despite the odd premise of an old man attaching balloons to his house and floating off into adventure, I would bet money ($10 per ticket) that it will be a good film, and worth watching.

Drag Me To Hell:

A horror movie with a PG-13 rating.  Usually that is the kiss of death because it means no blood and gore, no nudity, no swearing, and often nothing scary at all.  But this is Sam Raimi, so I went in with an open mind.  From the first “encounter” it is clear that this movie is less Texas Chain Saw and more Evil Dead 2/Army of Darkness.  The camera angles are bizarre, the sound effects are brash and loud, and everything is over the top.  Its gross and funny and even makes you jump now and then.  If you go in with the right expectations, this film is a fun ride.  Go in looking for the wrong thing and this film will leave you flat.
