This week Step Up Revolution hits theaters. It is the fourth film in the franchise, which seems like it isn't slowing down anytime soon. I think Step Up is a series that you either want to see them for the entertainment value and the fun or you don't. That is now left to you to decide.
The Watch also hits theaters. The movie was originally title Neighborhood Watch, but was changed after the tragic killing of Trayvon Martin by George ZImmerman, who was part of a Neighborhood Watch in Florida. That is probably where the similarities end, as it actuality it is an alien movie. However, it is kind of surprising to see Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Vince Vaughn in a movie that looks so terribly un-watchable. Guess it shows that even the best comedic stars can fall from grace.
In Theaters: July 27th
|1. Step Up Revolution|
The fourth film in the Step Up franchise starring a bunch of people whose names I don't know. However, in this case that is okay because it's all about the dance moves.
|2. The Watch|
Instead of just changing the title, perhaps they should have just nixed the whole movie.
|3. Ruby Sparks|
Paul Dano and Zoe Kazan look pretty damned sweet in this little indie romcom abou the love story that occurs when Dano's character is an author and writes a novel about his dream girl, who then becomes a real girl.
|4. Killer Joe|
The fact that this movie is NC-17 actually serves to make me intrigued about this violent dark comedy and what can be so bad about it that makes it deserve the strict rating. Matthe McConaughey stars as a hit man who is hired by a young drug dealer and his family to get "get rid" of his mother. I'm intrigued.
|5. Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry|
Feature length documentary about the internationally renowned Chinese artist and activist. He has garnered attention recently for his artwork and political ideal and intimately follows all aspects of his life. It is 93% fresh on rottentomatoes and sounds like it should be seen.
Produced by Drafthouse films, this movie is based on a Danish television show and looks wildly hysterical and inappropriate. Two friends go on an outrageous journey after the "kidnap" one of their nephews and have him do things a 12 year old never should (ex. Brothels, prison). It looks truly hysterical and I cannot wait to see.
From the director of Farewell my Concubine, The story of "an ordinary man who sacrifices everything so he may one day avenge his people."
