Friday Flick Picks 8/1/08

RI theaters enjoy the charm of Kevin Costner in the new movie Swing Vote. A comedy that takes on politics and civic responsibility. The Mummy:Tomb of the Dragon Emperor looks like a big mess, but I loved the first 2 parts of the franchise, so I'll probably check it out. The french thriller Tell No One is in art houses, along with The Wackness and The Rape of Europa. For the fun and funny there's Mamma Mia!, Step Brothers and Wall-e. The best action film of the summer, The Dark Knight is well worth your movie dollar. If none of this appeals to you, rent Shine a Light, out in DVD this week. RI International Film Festival starts Tuesday, check out the schedule here. Enjoy!

Swing Vote looks solid, but I'm leaning towards a rental (I think).

As for the Mummy threequel - it looks awful. I can't exactly stress how bad it looks to me and I think your giant mess description is accurate. I'm not sure why I have so much animosity built towards that film, but I do. Ha.

2D~Both of these films have me longing for Wednesday, when Pineapple Express hits theaters!

I'll probably catch Tell No One this weekend.
