The Weekend Watch: 12/17/2011
It has been a while since I was able to post any articles here, but I have been very busy. I recently started a new job and have also been practicing drums for a gig my band is in this weekend. With that said, I wanted to share with you readers a list of movies that are coming out.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows.
I never saw the first one, because nothing about it ever appealed to me. In fact the only thing that really intrigues me is the addition of Noomi Repace to the cast. She played Lisbeth Salander in the original Sweedish version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and with the remake so close. It is kind of fun to see her in a different role. I even like the banter between Robert Downey Jr and Jude Law as Detective Holmes and Dr. Watson. This looks like it could be fun.
Kudos to Fox Searchlight for having the balls to release this with an NC-17 rating. As well as Michael Fassbender for having the umm , uhh, confidence to release his balls and everything else on screen as well. This doesn't look to be the kind of movie where you would get a cheap laugh or any sort of prolonged excitement. This looks to be a very serious movie about the dangers of sex addiction. That sort of topic can only be told in a NC-17 flick. Let's hope more theater chains will have the same type of gonads and play this movie.
Alvin and The Chipmunks: Chipwrecked
FUCK YOU!!!!!. There is not one good thing about this trailer, and I blame all you assholes for giving money to this franchise. Now I sat through the first one and there is no way you can honestly tell me that these are good movies and keep a straight face.
Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol
This is the movie that really should have been the sequel to the one in 96. That movie had more of a group dynamic instead of focusing solely on Ethan Hunt(Tom Cruise). I'm glad that Director Brad Bird("The Incredibles") has decided to put more members of the team including Jeremy Renner and Simon Pegg. It also looks like it would be a good movie to test your home theater speakers with.
I love these movies where I can watch great actors perform. Going to the theatre is really expensive so I am glad that these adaptations are made. Plus you get too see the characters up close so you can take better notice of their emotions.
