How time flies! Here is this week’s releases and this week we have a very mixed bag of goodies! So whats in store? We have American Jedi warriors and their goats, an animated christmas tale (bah humburg), close encounters of the resident evil kind, man eating sex demon, a day to rob a bank, a girl who wants to understand love, immigrants who are welcome in calais, classic 1980’s comedyand a period drama.
I would say my movie choice of the week is THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS starring George Clooney, Ewan Magregor, Kevin Spacey and Jeff Bridges. The name of the movie itself is a perfect reason to check this out and throw in “real” American jedi warriors, need I say more? Jennifer’s body will get the people in especially the adolescent boys who just want to drool at Megan Fox, yes she’s a beautiful looking girl but nothing more. I do want to see nea who stare at goats but I like to go for the movies people want tend to check out and ill be going to see THE 4TH Kind with mila jovovich. Im not saying it will be a good movie or a bad one but movies that tend not to have major actors in it alot of people tend to avoid or say its bad without seeing it.
I havent seen a movie in 2 weeks so im looking forward to going to the flicks today. If you dont want to see one of the big players in the movies this week why not be different head to your local indie/arthouse cinema and go see a foreign or indie movie? there’s lots of great movies out there. Im going to say again and no one will do it, if your going to the cinema today or this week enjoy the movie and why not send a review? email your review to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the date, location and a rating out of 5 and ill post the review on the website.
