Wow, that's a lot of movies, and I'm pressed for time, so, I'm going to have to enlist some help this week. Please welcome guest reviewers, the cats from What Cats Are Saying.
'Sir Reginald Plumperdink'
"I think The Raven looks tasty. Way better than The Hunger Games, which left me wanting... Food."
"Safe has everything a cat like me could want. Blood... Violence... Anger... Statham. All good."
'The Duchess Gary Cooper'
"The Five Year Engagement reminds me of the good old days when you'd postpone the affair as long as possible cause it was for life. You remember 1998, right?"
"I like cults."
Of course Melvin is referring to Sound of My Voice which is a fantastic looking indie film. It's actually a pretty strong weekend in terms of films. Something for everybody. The Pirates! Band of Misfits, is based on some kids books, which I of course haven't read, but with a cast including David Tennant, Hugh Grant, and Martin Freeman, you can bet I'll catch that as soon as it hits video. It's even a strong weekend for indie films. Aside from the aforementioned SOMV, Bernie, the new Richard Linklater film in out in limited. It's a pretty trippy looking film, based on the true story of a well liked funeral home director who shot an elderly widow and stuffed her in a freezer for 9 months before anyone noticed. It stars Jack Black and Shirley MacLaine.
With this many films hitting this weekend, do you have plans on getting out to see any? Which most looks appealing to you?
