It’s a movie about a couple of lost wolves trying to get back to their families. It’s a kid’s movie. The trailer makes it look… typical. I’m sure kids will enjoy it.
To understand where M. Night’s career might be headed, go here and watch the video. He’s on a downward trend. But I like monster movies. So from the trailer we see people trapped in an elevator and some sort of thing is stalking them, which sounds really ridiculous when I say it. Stalked? In an elevator? Then again, maybe this will work, maybe it will be good. I think I’m going to wait for Netflix unless it gets some seriously awesome reviews.
This movie looks to be hilarious and possibly still have a heart as well. The story is about a girl who helps out her gay friend by pretending they have sex so that other guys at school will stop picking on him. This turns into her helping a number of other outcast guys with similar problems, earning her a reputation as a slut even though she’s not actually having sex with anyone. I’m sure it will all turn out okay, but it’s the ride (pardon the pun) that will make this worth watching. If I can find time and a few extra dollars, I’ll be off to see this at the theater.
The only movie opening this week that I’ve already seen, The Town is the latest effort from Ben Affleck. I’ve always thought he was a decent actor (especially when given good material), and as director of Gone Baby Gone he did admirably. So I was pretty excited to see The Town, and it didn’t disappoint. It was well directed, well acted, and well written. The heist scenes were exciting, and the whole thing worked. The only drawback to the film at all is the similarity it holds to the 1995 movie Heat. But it has been 15 years since the release of Heat, so I don’t mind so much that The Town plays out almost like a remake. Anyway, this movie is totally worth seeing. Your $10 won’t be wasted here.
