Friday Flick Picks 3/14/08

It's a happy weekend for families at RI theaters, Horton Hears a Who opens today! With visual whimsy and an important message (a person's a person, no matter how small), this one is worth a look. Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day and Penelope are also good choices in the "feel good" category. For thrillers we've got Funny Games. A remake of a disturbing story of home invasion and senseless violence. More horror than thriller. The Bank Job offers a good crime thriller based on a true story of a bank robbery in London circa 1971. And if you haven't seen U2 3D yet, it's still hangin' in at IMAX. Rock on!

Funny Games looks fairly disturbing to me from the trailers.

I saw Into the Wild this week, and really enjoyed it. It got better as it went along as the beginning narration grated on me a little bit.

2D~ Glad you liked Into the Wild, it is the kind of film that grows on you. Funny Games is very disturbing. An interesting film, but not one I feel very comfortable recommending.
