Hello, kids! Well, we’ve gotten through the holiday craziness and now we all are beyond ready for what 2008 will bring! My wish is for everyone is to be healthy and happy, and, of course, for Hollywood to crank out films like there’s no tomorrow!
With that said, you all know what you came for! Alas, this weekend only has one new film in wide release, but I can make do with that!
Welcome to the first installment of WIB? for 2008! Away we go!
One Missed Call: Oh, please! Give me a break! While I have nothing but respect for the Asian film industry, that doesn’t mean that every single movie they release has to be remade for U.S. audiences! Cell phones aren’t safe anymore in this film! People are getting mysterious voice messages detailing the exact moment of their own death, and poof! It happens soon after. You then have interested parties (made up of Shannyn Sossamon and Ed Burns) tracking down the whole scheme until what I assume is the typical bloody end.
Will It Bomb? I’m all set with this! But, with nothing else out, it’ll pull up right to the center of the 10. The flicks in the current Top 5 are too strong of a group and the rest need to get shifted around a little bit. It’ll probably flush out Aliens vs. Predator and The Water Horse, but there won’t be any long-term impact.
I’m pretty disappointed that this weekend won’t start out with a bang. There’s always next week, of course! Come on back then for an all-new edition of WIB?! Early next week, you also get the official results of this movie over at DIB?! Have a great weekend!
