New Movie Releases Reviewed in 7 Words Each
Chasing Mavericks - It's like Point Break without the fun.
Cloud Atlas - People keep telling me I'll like it.
Fun Size - What an original idea for a film.
Silent Hill: Revelation 3D - What ever happened to just part II?
It's not like Silent Hill was such a box office draw that people look at the sequel and are like, Yes... Revelation, I understand. I watched the first one and it was alright, but didn't really warrant a sequel in my estimation. As far as horror movies being translated from games, I'm still waiting for a Clock Tower adaptation to finally get done. A serial killer chasing the heroine around with a giant pair of scissors... Now that's creepy.
Cloud Atlas has all the hallmarks of the type of film I should be interested in, but it just doesn't turn my dial. Looks properly trippy and everything, but I just glaze over at the trailers. I'm sure I'll end up seeing it at some point and love it, but for now I'm just not interested.
Did you sense sarcasm in my Fun Size line? Well give yourself a pat on the back and get a cookie. It looks like the washed up remnants of a thousand other teen films, and this one comes courtesy of Nickelodeon. I won't look down on teens for watching it, but if you do -yes, you know I'm talking only to you, singling you out- I will look down.
Which leaves us Chasing Mavericks. Surfing. True story. 'Nuff said.
What are your plans for this weekend? With Halloween next week, are you planning on a scary movie fest?
