The Weekend Watch 04/06/2012.

Sorry about putting this post up so late in the day, but I had to work this morning and did not get a chance to start this until late.  I don't have a team of writers on this blog.  It's just me and some entries just happen to come later than others.  Still I wanted to bring you just a small breakdown of what you can expect in the cinemas this week.

Note  Check your local listings because not all theatres will have the same movie.

American Reunion.

Yes your favorite horny virgins and the pie fornicator are back for their high school reunion.  To be honest I'm surprised Jim(Jason Biggs) and Michelle(Alyson Hannigan) lasted for as long as they did.  Most relationships that begin with just sex usually are the first to fizzle out, but they seem to have a formula that works.  Plus I have a feeling they have the most kinkiest sex every night.

I liked the first one a lot, but thought all the sequels were kind of lame.   Even The third one lost most of it's appeal by than and it was already like a reunion anyways so why the need for this.

Titanic 3D

It's the same story you know about the same famous boat that sank.   If you never saw this on the big screen it's worth checking out, because it does look and sound spectacular.   I never thought it was something that needed  to be seen in 3D.  You might have different thoughts.

The Hunter

William Dafoe is a hunter on the trail of an animal who may have caused the disappearance of another man, but as he investigates further he discovers the true cause might have been man made.  This looks somewhat good because it has a great cast including Sam Neill and Frances O'Connor but it doesn't look to be that thrilling if that is what the movie is selling it as.

Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope.

Morgan Spurlock's most recent documentary is a love letter to the geek inside all of us.  He takes cameras inside one of the most beloved festivals in the world and gives us an inside look into what makes this convention so damn appealing.  From watching the trailer I got the impression that this doesn't focus just solely on the fans.  It also documents those who use it's connections to further their artistic careers.  I won't lie that I find this to be very interesting.

Damsels in Distress

College dorm girls decide that they are going to help those who are less popular by trying to make them feel worthwhile with a series of unconventional exercises. This is the latest from director Whit Stillman("Last Days of Disco") and this may be good but it has a very dry sense of humor. Sometimes that element may be fun and other times it's just painful. I like the performances of the cast members so I might check this one out.


A killer stalks three people outside an ATM machine in this new horror premise. Yes that's right a damn ATM machine. This just looks too comical to be taken seriously. I'm sorry but why would anyone want to stop at an ATM that is next to nothing. How badly do you need cash that you would stop at one in the middle of nowhere. I'm sure wherever they had to go, there would have been a cash machine inside.

Let me know what you think about this week's entry by leaving comments.  Have a great weekend.


  1. I'm staying home this weekend. I thought about seeing American Reunion but some of the reviews and spoilers have ruined it for me so I'll wait for it on TV.

    Besides, I'm going to watch 2 religious epics this weekend. The Last Temptation of Christ and The Ten Commandments.

  2. That sounds like an epic weekend. LTOC was a way better movie about JC than "The Passion Of Christ" which was more of a snuff film. Still havent watched "The Ten Comandments" but need to have a much bigger TV before I do.
