In Theaters This Weekend

"I don't survive"

Three new films of note for the weekend. Well, two of them are of note. One is . . . well, it's a movie produced by Adam Sandler. So there you go.

Bucky Larson: Born to be a Star. R.

Being friends with Adam Sandler apparently has its benefits. I like Nick Swarsdon, but this film just looks awful. Awful. Don't care.

Warrior. R.

Rocky for MMA fighters? I know next to nothing about it, and that's exactly how I like going into some movies sometimes. I hear the acting, especially by Tom Hardy is great, and that the film has more heart than the subject matter would lead you to believe. I'm really looking forward to seeing what the hoopla is all about.

Contagion. PG-13.
I can't even make up any jokes about this film (aside from the one surrounding the fact that we see Gwyneth Paltrow dying in the film's trailer, of course). Sure, it seems like an Outbreak rehash, but it looks even better (and I love me some Outbreak). How can you go wrong with a film starring Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Laurence Fishburne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Bryan Cranston, John Hawkes, etc., etc.? You can't. This movie is going to MELT FACES. Or at least just make them bleed from infection.

So what say you, faithful readers? Are you seeing one of these films this weekend? Yes, it's the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 this weekend, so of course pay your respects. Then go see a movie! What's more 'Merican than seein' a movie?
