Three contenders for the crown this weekend, but all of them will come up short.
The first of the group is The Sentinel, which I personally didn’t see because I wasn’t invited but the skinny is its just okay, or a little below okay. The line I actually heard used about it was “I’ve forgotten it already” (and this was from someone who had seen it hours earlier). This one is your typical non-suspenseful dog that will lure a few suckers in, but fail to capture the public’s imagination in any way, shape, or form.
Next up is Silent Hill, a film we should have a review up on shortly, but that is only because we weren’t invited to this one either and Brad is going to have to fork his own money out to watch it this weekend. My hunch is that it’s decent enough to come damn close to beating the spoof scare deal but it won’t quite get over the top. In that sense it will be like the first Rocky flick, so that’s nice company. Plus it won’t have to deal with that bitch Adrienne.
My favorite film of the week (review here) is American Dreamz. I thought the idea behind this one was really innovative and I always enjoy Hugh Grant (except for the second Bridget Jones thing). Sadly this one is in only 1,500 theaters so no hope for a big opening.
