Obligatory Weekend Movie Post 3/25/2011


Wide Releases:

Sucker Punch: Ohhhh, look at dee purtty pictaz! Dey so purty. Oooooo, 'n da wuman in de purty pictaz! WEEEEEE!!

Ladies, and gentlemen, I'm here today to talk to you today about what you can do to stop "Pretty Picture Moroncreationda." Every time I snap my fingers five hundred people become infected with this de-evolution inducing illness. But you have the power to stop it. For only $7 a week at an independent theater, you can prevent codenamed 'MichaelBaySomnia" from spurdin'... oh, such purtty pictaz! NOOO!!!!! BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE! GOOOO!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules: Apparently there was a first to this. I knew that, but I didn't know that I knew that which lead to me eventually trying to decide just how much I wanted to invest in whether or not I cared about my knowing something I wasn't fully aware of. On a side note: I have no interest in seeing this, nor its predecessor. So, if this is your cinematic selection, I wish you the best of luck.

Limited Releases:

Peep World: If I was hip and 'with it,' I would probably be writing something here about how awesome it is to have Michael C. Hall and Sarah Silverman in a movie together. Since I'm not, I'll just say - hell yeah Judy Greer!!!!!

Miral: Julian Schnabel + Frieda Pinto + Willem Dafoe. I want it to be good. I really do... but I just don't think it will be :(

White Irish Drinkers: You know, if one was to strictly judge a race solely on their portrayal in cinema, people would have a hard time trying to figure out what Irish people do when they're not drinking or planning and executing robberies. Well, you know... besides the whole bombing things.

Potiche: Say what you want about this cast. Gerard Depardieu will always be Mr. Andy MacDowell to me. Seriously though, I swear with each passing year he's starting to look more and more like that guy from Ink. Wait, was that reference a bit too obscure?


So, there you have it. Pick wisely, spend wiser. But above all, have a great weekend.

Miral is fantastic, Peep World is not, and I'm off to drop (more than) $7 on purty pictaz...

Yay, another weekend not spent at the movie theater!

That awkward moment when your most anticipated movie of 2011 turns out to be rated 23% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Meh, I wanna see the purty pictaz still.

Mine was less "Ooo look at the purty pictaz" and more "Zack Snyder film?! Where?!" Because I devour everything that he makes (his entire filmography is in my Top 30)

That said I have already seen Sucker Punch and...well...it's a hard one really. My review scale went from 0 stars to 5 to 2 to 4 to 1 to 3 all within the time it took for the movie to play out. I'm glad it did even out in the end but now I feel bad calling it my most anticipated. Then again I just gave my number 2 most anticipated 1 star the other day so I'm just on a roll lately.
