Weekend Watch 05/13/2011

I shouldn't even be working on this post because it is Friday the 13th.  But I try to keep my promises to those who still read this despite any kind of bad luck that may come may way.  We are getting into the summer season, but to be honest with you.  I'm just not that excited about the flicks that are being released.  There are some allright  titles but nothing I would fork over ten dollars to see.   What do you think?  Anyways,here is the list of new movies coming to theaters this weekend.

*Note***   Again, my comments are based solely on the trailers.  I have not received any ticket discounts since starting this blog.  Therefore I have not seen these movies, but I hope to soon. 



Priest


(Theatrical Trailer)

Paul Bettany is the title character in yet another adaptation of a somewhat well known comic book series. In it,Priest must attack a bunch of mutant vampires with a whole artillery of holy weapons such as heat seeking crosses and other Divine items. I'm sure there is going to be a whole slew of bible quotes before each vampire gets taken down. Jules Winfield from "Pulp Fiction" may even make a cameo to spout off his famous quote before he pops a cap in someones ass.




Bridesmaids.


(Red Band Trailer)


Some People are calling this the female answer to "The Hangover" and those people are morons. Yes it's an R rated comedy about females on a road trip to their friend's wedding and all the crazy shit that happens,but that doesn't mean it belongs in the same category. That would be like calling "Little Miss Sunshine" a dysfunctional "National Lampoons Vacation". But enough with the rants, I gotta say this looks damn good. I don't care if this is labled a "Chick Flick". I'll still see it.





Hesher.


(Theatrical Trailer)


Joseph Gordon Levitt has been getting some praise for his performance as a destructive loner who befriends a young boy(Devin Brochu).  Hesher seems to be one of those characters who is both interesting to watch but dangerous to be around. I'm interested to see this but it will most likely leave theaters when I want to see it. Natalie Portman co stars and is one of the producers.




Everything Must Go.


(Theatrical Trailer)


In this tale Will Ferrell is Nick Haseley; A man who has just been fired and decides to live outside and sell all of his possessions. While doing so he befriends a young neighbor(The Notorious B.I.G's son Christopher Jordan Wallace) and a good looking girl(Rebecca Hall). This is more of a serious role that may turn off some viewers if they were expecting a comedy. With that said. I don't know how interesting a story like this will be, but I have been surprised before.




Go For It.


(Theatrical Trailer)


Seriously, We're getting another one of these movies where a girl wants to dance professionally but has to deal with her uptight parents who don't want her to,snobby judges who don't think she can and of course the teacher who helps inspire her dreams. Was "Fame", "Save The Last Dance", and "Step up" so easily forgettable we had to change the ethnicity of the main character to make this story more interesting.




Skateland


(Theatrical Trailer)


Ahh yes another coming of age drama where a young boy stops his partying ways and matures into adult hood. Set in the 80's so we can listen to all those hits that have been used in countless other movies and more effectively too. Sorry folks but this looks like too much of a downer movie for me to recommend.  Just because you grow up doesn't mean you have to stop doing the things you love. 



L'Amour Fou


(U.S. Trailer)


A documentary about the auction of famed fashion designer Yves Saint- Laurent most well known works. Told through the eyes of the man who knew him the best, his lover Pierre Berge. This might be an interesting story for those of you who follow fashion. Unfortunately I don't know the first thing about what looks good on people. So I really don't know what made this guy such a legend in his field.




City Of Life and Death


(U.S. Trailer)


I'm not quite sure what this movie is about, but I do know it takes place during an important historical event in China.  The black and white cinematography is very beautiful and it gives an almost documentary vibe to the look of it.  I'll be interested to see how this film does during next year's award season. 



****One More Thing****I did note in last week's entry that I would review "I'm not Jesus Mommy" but the movie has already left theaters so that review will have to wait.
