Raise your hand if you'd like to see Will Smith do film again that would require him to make an effort. I see one, two... Oh good, everyone who likes Will Smith.
That's right After Earth is out this weekend. Will Smith and his offspring will be invading our screens. Reviews have been less than nice so far and none of the trailers have particularly roused anything within me. Than there's the fact that his name in the movie is actually Cypher Raige, which is just... Fantastic in the worst of ways. The fact that Shyamalan is the other key element in this time bomb makes it all the more enjoyable. Yes, enjoyable. I expect when it hits TBS half a year from now, to sit down and watch what should be a laughably forgettable film. As far as this weekend is concerned though, the entertainment will be derived from seeing how it does against Fast & Furious 6.
Also out this weekend is Now You See Me. I have a soft spot for magic, heist movies, Michael Caine, and sleeping Morgan Freemans (I have a lot of soft spots... I should probably get that checked out). On the other hand Kurtzman and Orci have their dirty paws in it. I'm still waiting for the day the two of them implode to offer some sort of balance in the universe. No one quite creates crap, like they do. Still it seems like another good film to catch out of theaters.
How's your day going? Little slow? Alright, here's another hit of Morgan Freeman falling asleep. How can your day be bad after that? It's like watching a cat video:
There, everything's better now.
So what are your plans this weekend? I'm feeling nap inspired.
