This Weekend at the Movies: April 2, 2010

Clash of the Titans

I don’t know why everyone is coming down so hard on this movie, of all people, critics should have been prepared for what this film had to offer more than anyone as I am sure most, if not all of them, have seen the original. Is it silly? Yes, but the story is quite fun and that’s pretty much all you can ask for when it comes to an effects driven film nowadays. Give it a chance, and do it in 2D, nothing is gained by 3D, another fact critics seem to be using to knock the film down another notch. Silly critics.

This film is rated PG-13 for fantasy action violence, some frightening images and brief sensuality.

I appear to be one of the few critics that wasn’t invited to screen Miley’s new movie. No worries, I wouldn’t have gone anyway. It’s not my cup of tea and I knew that from the outset. However, I know there is a large audience for her flicks and they showed up to the tune of $5.1 million for its Wednesday debut and now we’re left to see just how big it will go and what kind of draw young Cyrus has while not playing the character of Hannah Montana.

This film is rated PG for thematic material, some violence, sensuality and mild language.
Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married Too?

I have never been invited to a Tyler Perry movie and as a result I have never seen one. Perhaps they’re better than the studio believes they will be in the eyes of critics. No matter though, folks still turn out in droves to see them upon opening weekend, it’s after those first three days dry up that his films seem to completely lose their legs.

This film is rated PG-13 for thematic material including sexuality, language, drug references and some domestic violence.

This one stars Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon and Carey Mulligan and is getting a limited theatrical release this weekend. I have not seen it yet, but have a screening set for this coming Tuesday, which will cause me to miss Date Night. Oh, decisions, decisions.

This film is rated R for language, some sexual content and drug use.
