Interesting week for DVDs, with at least a couple of films coming along that I actually do feel like watching. I'm not going to buy any of them, mind you, but I do want to at least watch a few of the movies on the list below. Note that by "list below," I'm referring to the main list of films at the bottom of this post, not any of the following films that sound like they'd be absolutely terrible, yet also come out this week:
- Honey 2
- Return To Bloodfart Lake
- House Of Flesh Mannequins
- Bong Of The Dead
- Alien Vs. Ninja: Live Action Movie
|1. Puss in Boots|
Can't afford Mike Myers anymore? Call Antonio Banderas; it's not like he needs eighty million dollars to come in and record for a few hours. This is exactly what I surmise was the genesis for Puss In Boots.
|2. Tower Heist|
This movie is the cinematic equivalent of a flaccid penis. That statement popped into my mind just now, and now there it is in front of you! It's hard to call it horrible, and it wasn't exactly a bomb, but if I were this movie's mother I would be disappointed in it, as if my son aspired to do no more than work at a fast-food place. But then again, I'd be the mother of the only penis in the world who could flip burgers. And I'd be a woman. I don't understand any of what I'm saying.
|3. J. Edgar|
This felt like a movie that just didn't know where it wanted to go. I didn't particularly like it, myself, but maybe all the people who didn't see it will be able to judge it for themselves now?
|4. Martha Marcy May Marlene|
Everyone has raved about this movie, which means that I will have to watch it. The end.
|5. The Mighty Macs|
I love me some Carla Gugino, but alas I don't think a movie about her teaching an all-women's basketball team at a Catholic high school is going to feature much nudity. Although, if it did, I have a feeling it'd have a chance at some Oscars. At least, in my mind.
|6. The Way|
Emilio Estevez wrote and directed this movie that stars his father. By most accounts it's pretty good, but I still have a hard time with Emilio Estevez in anything other than Men at Work.
|7. London Boulevard|
I've come to appreciate Colin Farrell as an actor, oddly enough. And I like crime movies. Maybe I'll check this out.
|8. The Son of No One|
I will not check out anything with this much Chatum on the poster.
A micro-cast film with only a few performers, Retreat is theoretically an apocalyptic film about a couple on a remote island who deal with a castaway who brings news about a disease that's sweeping Europe. But is he telling the truth? We'll find out when Netflix delivers my disc!
|10. Nurse Jackie|
