Marred by a clear, obvious, and marked series of poor decisions throughout the filmmaking process, the standalone, antiheroic Venom movie will disappoint fans of one of Spider-Man’s greatest nemeses to no end, and will leave casual observers of comic book films half-heartedly shrugging in apathy.
Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari try to stay alive and rob a bank this weekend in the action-comedy, 30 Minutes Or Less; a new gang of pretty young 20-somethings take on death in the latest from the horror franchise, Final Destination 5; plus I take a look at The Help and Glee: The 3D Concert Movie.
The rainy days of spring are here, and since it’s a very quiet week for new releases, I thought it was a fine opportunity to count down ten of my favorite rainy day movies. Which may make you wonder–what makes a great rainy day movie? If you ask me, it all comes down to rewatchability, brilliant casting, great writing, and off-the-wall stories.
New arrivals on DVD and Blu-ray for February 2 include the horror comedy Zombieland, starring Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg; the drama, Amelia, with Hilary Swank and Richard Gere; plus the romantic drama Love Happens.
Once again, theatres are jammed with new releases, and the good news is that this is a banner weekend for movies with most of the films getting great early reviews. Coming out this weekend we have the horror/comedy Zombieland, Michael Moore‘s Capitalism: A Love Story, the comedy The Invention Of Lying, Drew Barrymore‘s Whip It, and the re-release of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 back-to-back in 3-D.
