January Theatrical Releases

January 4th

One Missed Call: This plot's been done to death, but I haven't seen any of the previous versions because frankly they looked like they sucked. The trailer for this one actually looks creepy though.

January 11th

In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Seige Tale: Oh, it's gonna suck. It's gonna suck hard. And yet, knowing that, I feel compelled to look. I know I'm gonna hate myself, but I just can't look away.

27 Dresses: Even though I like the occasional romantic comedy, there's no reason for me to think this'll be one of them except for Katherine Heigl and James Marsden. Especially Marsden. Heigl reminds me of Grey's Anatomy, which always brings me joy, but Cyclops is becoming one of my favorite actors.

The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A Veggie Tales Movie: This sounds like the biggest sell-out in the world, but we're a Veggie Tales-loving family (it's all about Larry and the French peas) and, hey, it's the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything.

January 18th

Cloverfield: I'm still not really excited about the hand-held camera concept, but it's a giant monster movie. How could I not go?

January 25th

Be Kind Rewind: (limited release) The poster for this did nothing for me because frankly I'd like to pretend that VHS never existed, but the trailer sold me with all the no-budget remakes of classic movies.

Rambo: I don't care if it sucks. If they made a new Commando movie, I'd go see it too. But after Rocky Balboa's good reception (I still haven't seen it, but I heard nothing bad), my hopes are up for this.

Suprisingly I heard the new rocky film is good. I cant wait to see the new (#4 I think) Rambo. I loved those movies. The first one was filmed in my province, here in B.C.
I remember reading the books as a kid. David morrel was one of my favorite authors. How come they never made a movie based on brotherhood of the rose?

There was a Brotherhood of the Rose TV movie in the late '80s starring David Morse, Peter Strauss, and Robert Mitchum. I'd never heard of it until I went searching just now, but now I really want to see it!
