In the News:
Today 5 readers of E! Online were admitted to a psych ward when a post on the website informed them that time actually existed before 1985. Shocked, and in deep despair, the attending psychiatrist, Dr. Kathryn Railly (+2 points for the reference) noted: "The patients are at a very fragile stage right now. The realization that time did not begin with them has come at great costs to their psyche, and we must take great care in moving forward."
With such painful news one spokesperson for the WTF IS HISTORY Foundation angrily said: "I hope E! learns their lesson from this, and takes action to ensure further incidents such as this are not repeated."
Note, this is made up by me, if you think this is real you probably read too much E!
Knight and Day: Let's be honest, Tom Cruise just isn't the star vehicle he once was, and we all know why (opinions aside). Add that to Cameron Diaz's ever weakening selections (My Sister's Keeper and The Box in the same year will do that too yah), and you can pretty much smell a meh reception from a mile away. To be honest, the movie just looks like generic fun, and I can see myself giving it a shot. Just not opening weekend.
Grown Ups: One of these days someone will have to explain the seeming fascination with the screaming man-child character of Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell. I enjoyed it the first few times I saw it. Something different, a bit fresh, and out there. Now... I feel like I'm watching a 40 year old sitting in the playpen with kids screaming about how he wants to use the Tonka truck. Please, feel free to embrace the kid in you... just keep it in you. Don't scream and flaunt it about. To be honest, baring a 10/10 from some of you, this won't be watched until it hits basic cable.
Restrepo: A Documentary on the War in Afghanistan? Hmmm, never heard of it, but it could work. To be honest this sounds more like an HBO project than a theatre movie, but if good reviews appear, I could see myself checking it out.
Wild Grass (La/Ny): Not sure what to make of this one. Is it getting the "Hey, look, it's foreign!" release. Or the "Hey, this is pretty good, check it out!" release. With no pre-buzz, and only Mathieu Amalric to grab my attention, I can't say much about this weekend release.
Uni Recommendation: Going out isn't a bad thing, especially if you're like me and haven't seen Toy Story 3 yet. As for this weekend's releases, only if bad weather is giving you nothing to do would I say even bother.
That's all ladies and gents, catch yah later!
