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.
Opening this weekend in theatres: Liam Neeson and Diane Kruger star in the action-thriller, Unknown; I Am Number Four stars Alex Pettyfer as a super-powered teenager on the run; plus a look at Small Town Murder Songs, and Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.
New this week on home video: Timothy Olyphant tries to survive a town of infected killers in The Crazies; John Cusack goes on a wild ride through the eighties in Hot Tub Time Machine; Paul Bettany plays Charles Darwin in the drama, Creation; and a look at Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
New this week at a theatre near you: Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan star in Kevin Smith‘s action comedy, Cop Out; plus a look at the horror film, The Crazies, starring Timothy Olyphant.
