New Movie Releases Reviewed in 7 Words Each
Titanic 3D - It's unbelievable how little I actually care.
American Reunion - This bed is on fire with gasoline...
Oh sure, I could pretend like there are other movies out this week. There's a 3D documentary on air racing out; a handful of minor interest limited releases swimming around the theatrical pond. But really it's about American Reunion. Hunger Games last week slapped Wrath of the Titans in the face like it was its... Finish that sentence however you see fit. I'm going with orange myself. So clearly, it's still got enough steam going to be a top movie. Reunion will share Hunger Games audience, but with an R rating, it's not really competing. Titanic 3D is a what it is. Seems completely unnecessary, but then, I've felt that about James Cameron as a person for years. Undoubtedly it will be felt. How big? Hard to say. I suppose there's a contingent of people out there who would like to revisit Leonardo DiCaprio on the big screen, before the days of looking like someone injected helium into his frontal lobes.
As far as American Reunion. What's there to say really? Each film of the original trilogy was essentially the same movie repackaged with different settings. Either you're a fan and your going or it was never your cup of tea, and you're not. This really is a film that anyone who goes to see it, knows what they're getting ahead of time.
I'll give you odds though that at some point in the film, probably towards the end when everything is golden between Jim and Michelle, that there's a nod to the first film by way of Jim grabbing an apple pie and heading to the bedroom with Michelle. Sly smiles and winks optional.
So with Easter on the way, I leave you with this thought: Don't go see Titanic 3D. The madness has to stop somewhere. Go watch Hunger Games. Yes, I know you've seen it, but how many times have you seen Titanic by now? What? I don't care that it's in 3D. That doesn't change the story. Fine... I can tell you're just going to ignore my pleas anyway.
Have a happy Easter weekend everyone!
