  New Releases – 3.27.07
Posted by: Christine on Mar 27th, 2007 Leave a Comment »

What a great week for new releases! The children’s favorite Happy Feet comes out on DVD today. Parents be warned: your child will probably want to watch this repeatedly (as will I). The Oscar-nominated Will Smith stars with his real-life son Jaden in The Pursuit of Happyness (and yes, there’s a reason it’s spelled incorrectly). Finally we have Clive Owen, Julianne Moore and the inimitable Sir Michael Caine in the dismal future, yet excellent film, Children of Men.

  This weekend’s new reviews
Posted by: Mike on Mar 25th, 2007 Leave a Comment »

There was a ton of new releases this weekend; everything from fighting turtles, to swimming basketball players, to Marky Mark (who you kiddin’, he’ll always be Marky Mark) shooting bad guys trying to frame him.   The Snobs saw a bunch of movies this weekend, be sure to check out what they thought:
Katy saw, and reviewed two flicks this weekend
Shooter, which she says:

The action scenes were pretty good, and whoever was doing the stunt shooting was incredible. The underlying plot itself, as well as the outcome, was predictable.”, and “If you really don’t have anything else to see or do, go ahead and see this film, or wait until it’s out on DVD.

For TMNT,Katy said:

No matter how you say it, this is another film that could and should serve as a companion piece, but by no means should substitute for the original.

Read Katy’s TMNT review »

James took the liberty of seeing “this latest edition of every other sports film you’ve ever seen”, in Pride, be sure to read the rest of James’ thoughts, in his review ».

And lastly, Christine, and I had our afternoon ruined by watching the snore-fest that is Premonition. Luckily, I didn’t have to relive it, to write the review. Christine took that honor. Be sure to check out what she had to say about it. »

Premonition Review

Premonition

Boring, boring, boring. I really wanted to like this movie. I love Sandra Bullock. From the trailers the movie seemed a little bit like the Final Destination series, where they know something is going to happen and they try to stop it. It turned out to be more like Memento, where you’re confused the whole time, but without the payoff at the end of finding out what the hell happened.

So Day 1, Sandy wakes up and finds out her husband is dead. Day 2, he’s back. Day 3, they’re at the funeral. Day 4, he’s back. Etc, etc, etc. Pieces of the mystery unravel as the movie goes on, but you never quite get the full picture. There’s no huge “a-ha” moment at the end. There’s no giant unravelling of the tale. Just day after day of confusion.

Sandra Bullock is the only good thing about this movie. She’s fully believable as a woman gone mad. She’s confused, disoriented and possibly delusional, yet she still has great hair. I just wish the movie was better. She is a fantastic actress, and it’s a shame to waste her talent on an unfinished piece like this.

Skip this one. Don’t even bother renting it.
