Film 07-12-13Wednesday 12th:

The Perfect Holiday – With Gabrielle Union, Morris Chestnut, Queen Latifah, Terrence Howard, Jill Marie Jones, Faizon Love. Single women, needs a man, finds a man, they like each other, man lies, she finds out, I’m sure the Holiday spirit brings them together and he gets a REAL job. Romantic, comedy that seems to be pretty straight forward. People love these, personally I can’t stand them.

Friday 14th:

Alvin and the Chipmunks – With my fav Jason Lee (oh why!?) and Cameron Richardson. A live action/ CGI based on the 1950’s and 60’s cartoon “Alvin and the Chipmunks.” Apparently they have to help save Jason Lee’s career and become pop sensations. Lots of dance sequences, “funny” jokes, and awkward humor. From the trailer, it appears to be a kids film with many adult jokes, but not really. When your best joke is one Chipmunk eating the other ones poo and pretending it’s raisin, you’re in trouble. But it was a classic and maybe, just maybe it will surprise you (not me, I’m not going).

I Am Legend - With Will Smith. It has potential! It has conflict! It has inner struggle! Please don’t be shit! Will Smith plays a brilliant scientist, that is the sole survivor of the human race trying to find the cure for an unstoppable, incurable, manmade virus. But while trying to do this he is stalked and hunted by the victims who have mutated into horrible, man killing, only live at night things. Desperate to find other survivors and keep the human race alive with his blood which is immuned to the virus, he continues to fight, but time is running out and he is becoming out numbered.

The Kite Runner – With Said Taghmaoui, Shaun Toub, Nasser Memarzia, Khalid Abdalla, Mason Hsieh, Zekeria Ebrahimi, Ahmad Khan Mahmidzada, Homayoun Ershadi. A story about father’s, son’s, and friendship taking us from the final days of Afghanistan’s monarchy to the atrocities of the Taliban reign.

Look - With Hayes MacArthur, Sebastian Feldman, Rhys Coiro, Giuseppe Andrews, Spencer Redford, Jennifer Fontaine, Heather Hogan, Jaime McShane. Horror film built off the fact that since 9/11 over 30 million surveillance cameras and 40 billion hours a week of video is recorded around the US. From fucking someone who is not your wife, to picking your nose, or stealing a child, it’s all there. The real question is, who is watching it?

Youth Without Youth – With Tim Roth, Alexandra Maria Lara, Bruno Ganz, Marcel Iures, Anamaria Marinca. Centers on a professor whose life changes after a cataclysmic incident during the dark years before WWII. Becoming a fugitive, he is pursued through far-flung locations including Romania, Switzerland, Malta and India. Looks beautiful.
