Tron Legacy: I pass my legacy onto you my son: Over Four-thousand Beanie Babies! The world's largest collection is now all yours! What? The video game? No, no, no, no. That I keep for myself. You see, in twenty-eight years I'll be needing to revisit it for a future film. However, I have it on good authority that in only eighteen these things will be massive! So, you stock up on them now and by the time you're old enough to understand, you'll be rich! Or they'll be out of popularity, but either way I'm off to make my grand disappearance. Peace!
Just about every review I've read has said the same thing: "meh screenplay, meh film, but yay Daft Punk and shiny images!" Which generally sets off my "yeah, it's as bad as you feared it was, but we don't want to be the one to say it" alarm.
How do You Know: David Mitchell take it from here!
*You can skip to the 15 second part for the good part. Oh, and for the movie, yeah not going to be featured highly on the 'to do' list.
Yogi Bear: Bill Murray did Garfield. Dan Aykroyd does Yogi Bear. Please Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis - we won't be able to survive if they get all four of you. Run, hide, do whatever you have to do, but please stay out of this god forsaken realm of awfulness. The world needs you now, and you can't let them down! You can't!
Rabbit Hole: Mia Wasikowska or Nicole Kidman? Two Australian actresses and rabbit holes. Hmmmm. Going to leave that one alone for now. This looks nice though. A real pick me up. Really, how many 'look at these screwed up couples!' indie films are we going to have this year?
Casino Jack: Kevin Spacey, where have you been? I had to go all the way back to Glengarry Glenn Ross to find you! No, your voice over in Moon doesn't cut it, nor does The Men Who Stare at Goats. I'm talking premium, starring, roles! Has it really been that hard for you post American Beauty that your highlights of the 2000's were in films either nobody saw or nobody remembered? Please come back to us. We need you, now as much as ever (and the lackluster RottenTomatoes scoring for this isn't going to cut it).
Expanding: Black Swan and The Fighter
So ladies and gentlemen what shall be your viewing for this weekend?
