Christine watched the Diane Lane cyber thriller Untraceable and says,
One minute and thirty seconds into the movie, I thought I knew who the bad guy was. I was wrong, but I actually think I would have liked the movie more had I been right…It’s not the best thriller I’ve ever seen but it’s definitely a good one.
This week’s new releases include two very well placed releases, one thriller that I’m bummed I missed in theaters, and two movies that are probably not worth watching, let alone buying.
Indiana Jones – The Adventure Collection is perfectly timed to get fans ready for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, while The Chronicles of Narnia Blu-ray release is just in time for the release of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
I’m quite looking forward to watching the Diane Lane thriller Untraceable, but I’m actually a little ashamed to have included Mad Money and The Great Debaters in this list.
The Guardian is reporting on an extremely violent ad campaign for Untraceable that was pulled from Facebook recently. They say the promotional Facebook Page titled “Kill With Me” featured this text,
This guy is going to die. You want to see his stinking flesh burn and bleed and blacken? Until he’s some twisted dead thing? This is what you want. And I’ve filmed it especially for you. The more fans I get, the more I’ll show…
This violent content fits with the film but was removed from Facebook because the marketing company failed to put age restrictions on the page to protect younger Facebook users.
Untraceable stars Diane Lane as an FBI computer crimes specialist investigating a series of murders using the website killwithme.com, which is a live URL hosting a promotional site for the movie.
Hello, everyone! The weekend has come and gone, but the figures still remain. Last week, I gave you my predictions for how the latest films were going to do financially. What now, you ask? It’s time to pay the piper!
Did I get it on the nose or did I completely wipe out? Let’s find out!
How She Move: A teenager is unable to continue attending an elite private school. As she tries to deal with returning to her tough neighborhood, a stint in a step group may bring her much needed financial assistance. Will It Bomb? 100%. This film is so beyond clichéd, it has no chance. Did It Bomb? Did it ever! This didn’t even hit the top 10, and made a lousy $4.2 million. There’s no salvaging this! Outcome: Score! 1 out of 4.
While the entertainment industry is still reeling from the tragic and sudden death of Heath Ledger earlier this week and that of Brad Renfro last week, I couldn’t help but feel a sense of sorrow and shock. For me, these emotions cannot express my thoughts about the losses of two young actors who possessed true and undeniable talent. As with other greats who passed long before their time, their individual lights had yet to reach their full brightness. I can only hope that their families, friends, loved ones, and fans will keep the memories alive and those lights will continue to shine as intensely as ever.
However, as sad as how the entire course of events has transpired, as they say in this business, the show must go on. As always, the newest films are still slated for release by their respective studios, and I am here to give you all the details about the odds of them either turning a nice buck or going right down the tubes. It’s time for this week’s edition of WIB?.
What’s it looking like this weekend? Read on…
How She Move: When her family goes broke and can no longer afford to send her to an elite private school, a teenager returns to her rough and tumble neighborhood, battling her former childhood friends. Joining a step dancing group, a major competition’s prize money may be what she needs to get her back on track. Will It Bomb? Absolutely. This has to be easily the fourth or fifth step dancing movie that has come out in the last 2 years. In addition, we all know at least 10 films that have to do with personal struggle and overcoming adversity. I see no success for this film. They should have sent it straight to DVD.
