After getting off to a madcap and pleasingly bloody start, the body swapping and slasher movie mash-up Freaky peaks early before dying a painfully slow and unfunny death.
Dragged Across Concrete, the latest slow-burn from still emerging American genre filmmaker S. Craig Zahler, is well in line with the writer-director-composer’s previous efforts, and it assuredly won’t sway any of his detractors or confound any of his many supporters.

Continuing last week’s void of new arrivals, this is yet another slow week for DVD and Blu-ray releases. Only two new arrivals land on home video today: Seth Rogen and Jay Chou star in the action-comedy, The Green Hornet; plus Vince Vaughn and Kevin James try to laugh it up in the weak Ron Howard comedy, The Dilemma.
This is another dismal winter weekend for movie buffs as only two new films open up in theatres. Opening this week, Seth Rogen and Jay Chou star in the action-comedy, The Green Hornet; plus Vince Vaughn and Kevin James try to laugh it up in the weak Ron Howard comedy, The Dilemma.
Coming out this week, Dan Brown‘s Angels & Demons has Tom Hanks solving riddles, all in the name of saving the Vatican from the Illuminati; Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn co-star in the holiday comedy, Four Christmases; plus a look at Shorts, and Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Opening in a limited number of theatres this week, writer and director Ruba Nadda‘s award-winning film Cairo Time stars Patricia Clarkson as a woman facing love in a strange city. Plus, Vince Vaughn stars in the farcical comedy Couples Retreat, and we take a quick look ahead at films coming later this month.
Canadians get an early gift this week as American Thanksgiving pushes all of the new releases to Wednesday. Debuting a bit early this week, Transporter 3 has Jason Statham muscling his way across Europe with a “delivery” in tow, an epic romance blossoms between Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman in Baz Luhrmann‘s Australia, while Four Christmases copies the usual lame Christmas comedy routine. And the only truly great release this week has Sean Penn starring in Milk, about the life of Harvey Milk.
Arriving this week, Will Smith plays a wanna-be reformed superhero in Hancock, Vince Vaughn is Santa’s no-good brother in Fred Claus, and don’t forget about A Colbert Christmas, the new special edition of 300, 24: Redemption, and Freaks & Geeks: Yearbook Edition.
