Obligatory Weekend Movie Post #32

Back from vacation and sexier than ever. Sunburned and Tan, the true markings of sex appeal. Ladies hold on to your undies, Uni's on the prowl.... As it just occurs to me that by saying that I have decreased the likelihood of me having another relationship anytime soon by 50000%.

Fail.

Wide Release:

Sex and the City 2: LADIES AND...... SOME... FEW... A COUPLE... GENTLEMEN IT'S FINALLY BACK! That's right all your hopes and dreams have been fulfilled. At 2 hours and 20+ minutes the fab 4 are bringing you more clothes, more cameos, and sand. Yeah, I'm not sure what the hell is going on either. You see no matter how god awful this thing is, we can be thankful for one thing. Men seeking to look older can simply watch this, because, by the time it's over, they'll have aged 30 years.

Princes of Persia: Sands of Time: Gemma Arterton - *picks petal* She loves me. *picks petal* She loves me not. *picks petal* She doesn't know me. Wait, this is getting too complicated. Instead how about I just say this - PoPSoT looks like the kind of movie you watch because there's nothing else to do, and your medication hasn't kicked in yet. Think degenerate cousin of Pirates of the Caribbean, with a falsetto Tomb Raider reverse put in. I'll probably watch it eventually, but I'm thinking rental right now.

Limited Release:

Micmacs: Jean-Pierre Jeunet, I rest my case. Oh, right, my case is that this movie is definitely high on the must see list. If it isn't on your list you should repent, ask why you're flawed, and carry on about your business. Or just rent Amelie, and A Very Long Engagement and catch up on what you've been missing. Note: if you rent Alien: Resurrection and judge him off of that, I'll have to give you 3 *tsks* and a *boo*!

Survival of the Dead: Or as it shall be known from here on out: Survival of the Series. I love the original Night of the Living Dead. Dawn of the Dead is just amazing character-zombie crossover. And even Day of the Dead, and Land of the Dead, weren't too bad. But these days it seems like Romero is forcing the creative juices for cheapo films only the extreme of loyal fans watch. Take a few years Romero, we will wait!

As a side note: Breathless, the famous 1960 Jean-Luc Godard film is also getting a limited re-release. My opinion: good, but not run out to see in theater good.

Alright ladies and gents, glad to be back, can't wait to spend a weekend catching up on all the posts you've done. Till then, ciao!

two of my favourite summer movies released at the same time, now which one shall I go and see??? Oh, wait, I'm not in USA and don't really have the choice. SEX AND THE CITY has already been released in Serbia last week, while we're still waiting for PRINCE OF PERSIA . I hope it will be released before summer, because our distributors usually do not release blockbusters during summer and save them till autumn, since most Serbs go to seaside and don't visit cinemas in July and August.

Welcome back!

Not sure if I'm actually going to get out and see something this weekend, but of all of these mentioned, MICMACS would be my choice.

Castor said...

All releases this week are a skip for me :( Awaiting Splice next weekend though!

Univarn said...

@Dezmond Good luck with S&C 2, if you make it out alive I hear you get a medal.

@Mad thanks :). I want to see Micmacs, but it's nowhere near the NC area yet.

@Castor I'm iffy on Splice, but yeah most of this weekend's films are a skip for me as well.

This Memorial Day weekend of films is a total FAIL!

The Mad Hatter said...

@ The Answer... No kidding. It's hard to believe that I actually miss looking forward to a Memorial Day STAR WARS prequel!

rtm said...

Good thing I haven't seen Robin Hood, yet, Crowe/Blanchett, here I come! Agree with Answer, super lame... Inception can't come soon enough!

Univarn said...

@Answer & Mad Not only that but none of the films being released are in any way keeping with the notions of Memorial day. If anything it's almost the exact opposite. Thank you for dying so that I can watch a bunch of sand, abs, and women in high heels!

@rtm I agree, and may very well be making that same trip to the theater.

I beg to differ, good sir.

Sex and the City trailers give me a headache.

Univarn said...

@Simon No need to beg, differ away. To me Breathless was visually compelling, but way too pretentious and self-obsessed. Especially in its dialogue.

I actually saw Survival of the Dead yesterday and it blew... and I'm a big Z-Head. It was like a feuding family picture with Zombies in it... I just didn't get it. And it followed a guy who's in Diary for about a minute for no apparent reason. I don't know...
All that said, it was still probably better than Sex & the City 2! :)
