This weekend has about the most anticipated movie of the year so far in V for Vendetta. Hell, it was anticipated last year when it was originally due out. Delayed five months for um “special effects” reasons (or rather political reasons in my estimation) this flick is worth the hype. It’s not a perfect film but after the January and February nightmare for the general public (I’m assuming no Winter Passing or Block Party for you) you’ll find this to be highly refreshing. Hey, wait a sec, shouldn’t I just go over this in the preview? Sigh. I’m always popping off too early. Here we go!
Our good friend V is very fortunate to be opening against a typical teen movie. It also is very fortunate that the holdovers from last weekend weren’t that strong to begin with. It also has your gal Natalie Portman. Heard of her? She’s just what the doc ordered in this one. V for Vendetta is in the right place at the right time, like me with that drunk chick so many years ago (hey nana!).
She’s The Man also debuts this weekend with Amanda Bynes who’s just as cute as a cupcake. She’s been making the media rounds saying how much fun she had making the movie and how neat it was to be playing a boy, and aww shucks the soccer was soooo difficult. Spare me. If I see one more apple pie cutesy teen star I’m going to chuck. These kids are about as realistic as my superhero alter ego, Dr. Dolphin Man.
