Weekend Wrap Up...

Hey guys! Sorry for not posting for the past couple of days...no news to speak of, outside of McCain's VP choice and Hurrican Gustav, but I don't want to get into weather or politics here, so lets just get into it...here's the box office top 10...

1.Tropic Thunder
2.Babylon A.D.
3.The Dark Knight
4.The House Bunny
5.Traitor
6.Death Race
7.Disaster Movie
8. Mamma Mia!
9.Pineapple Express
10.Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Tropic Thunder is still number 1...only grossed 16 million bucks though...This brings me to my question. Why have the past three weeks box office numbers been so low? Have you guys gone out to the theatres in say, the past month, or has your selection detered you from shelling out your hard earned dinero?

Traitor is at a solid 5...I'll have a review of that either tomorrow or later tonight...

Go see Vicky Cristina Barcelona...it's amazing...

Here are your noteable DVD releases for this Tuesday, the 2nd of September...it's a trio of small indie flicks...

- The Promotion...Indie comedy starring Sean William Scott and John C. Reily about two guys attempting to get a promotion at their grocery store...Little seen film, that had an interesting trailer, solid cast, and a pretty cool premise...give it a rental.

- Then She Found Me...Helen Hunt and a Colin Firth star...there's the reason to skip it...

~PICK OF THE WEEK~
- Reprise...
Two freinds who have a competative spirit deal with life, love, and work...all I know about this film is that it's a big critic favorite, and the people I've talked to have loved it. I'll be renting this one.

Alright, here's the deal. Summer is coming to a big time close, and the theatres are definitley taking a hit, quality wise. This week sees ONE new release, Bangkok Dangerous, starring Nick Cage as an assassain who goes good after meeting a lovely lady in Bangkok...so, instead of telling you guys to go see that probable pile of shit, I am going to give you the five best films, still in first run theatres...

5. Traitor
4. Tropic Thunder
3. Wall E
2. Vicky Cristina Barcelona
1. The Dark Knight

So, if you feel an urge to get out to the theatres, and you haven't seen one of these, please, do yourself a favor, and give one a shot, especially Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Traitor. More on Traitor later...

That's all I've got for now, so come back this week for some news, notes, a DVD review, and a review of Traitor and probably Bangkok Dangerous...

Go see something good!

  1. Nick Cage seems to grow his hair out in a cycle of one out of about every four movies, i.e. ConAir, Next and now Bangkok Express
