Happy Friday, everyone! This weekend may be a biggie in the sports world as our beloved Patriots take on the Giants at the Super Bowl, but it’s always a race to the top in Movie Land! That’s right, kids! Welcome to this week’s installment of WIB?!
Now, are the films that the studios are releasing this week up to snuff? Or are you better off staying home and flipping the channels?
Take a look!
The Eye: For once it’s not Sarah Michelle Gellar doing a Japanese remake! This time it’s Jessica Alba. Hey, somebody new! As a recipient of a corneal transplant, Alba gets her sight back, but also gets the kind of visions not many of us would care to see. Yep, it’s the scary and supernatural kind. Whoopee. Will It Bomb? It’s debatable. While the remake game will always be in play, and the desire for another psychological shocker is apparent, I am not thrilled with the choice for the lead (we all know that SMG and Naomi Watts are the queens of this genre). However, I think that some revenue will come in. It’ll probably get in the mid-to-low end of the 10, shuffling along with Strange Wilderness (see below).
