Friday Flick Picks 2/27/09

We are deep in the doldrums of sorry winter release season. The only new thing in RI theaters worth my attention this weekend is the movie Fanboys. Geeks abound, looks silly and fun. Watch out for all those crazy tweens that will swarm the theaters to see their beloved Jonas Brothers in a 3D concert film. If you need to catch up on your Oscar nominated films, Slumdog Millionaire, Milk, The Reader, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Revolutionary Road, The Wrestler, Doubt, Waltz With Bashir and The Dark Knight are all in RI theaters. On a lighter note there's He's Just Not That Into You, Paul Blart:Mall Cop, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Madea Goes to Jail and Fired Up. Coraline is well worth a look. Gran Torino, The International, I've Loved You so Long and Taken round out the choices for this weekend's viewing. Enjoy!

I agree as these past few weeks have been brutal as far as movies are concerned, although it seems like it happens every year around this time.

I rented RockNRolla this week, and it was pretty decent. That being said, it just feels like Ritchie can only do that one kind of movie and the returns are less and less each time. I'll be interested to see what he does w/ Sherlock Holmes later this year.

2D~Ifigured RockNRolla would be a satisfying rental. I really like Ritchie's style, so I'm looking forward to Sherlock Holmes as well. And then there's the Robert Downey Jr factor *sigh*.
