A Perfect Getaway:
I like horror movies, and this one looks to be a pretty suspenseful tale about people hiking through the jungle with some other people who might be killers.Â I’m sure there will be a twist.Â As always, I’m not sure I’d spend my hard earned $10 on it, but it might merit a matinee, and at the very least a priority spot on my rental list.
Julie & Julia:
Would it be gay to admit that I kinda want to see this?Â Could I make up for it by saying that its mostly because I really like Amy Adams?Â In any event, this looks to be a fairly decent girly flick about someone getting their groove back or something like that.Â I imagine theaters across the country will be packed with groups of women out to get their girl power on.
G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra:
Meanwhile, next door to Julie & Julia is where you will find all the guys this weekend.Â I mean, its G.I.Joe.Â It doesn’t even have to be good to make a truck load of money.Â Any guy who ever owned some of the action figures will no doubt be willing to part with $10 to see it on the big screen.Â And what guy doesn’t want to see Scarlett, Cover Girl and The Baroness in the flesh? Â I got a chance to see a screening of this one, and it didn’t disappoint from that perspective. Â This film has so much fan service, with characters and vehicles and lines and back story elements, that they almost forgot to have a plot. Â Its there, but its pretty blatant, with no real twists or turns, this movie telegraphs its punches all the way through. Â Still, it is an enjoyable ride. Â Better than Transformers, in my opinion. Â I just wish they’d chosen to focus on a smaller set of characters and one strong story with one or two subplots instead of trying to cram in everything. Â But hey, if you are a fan, go see it.
