That’s not to say that you won’t be so anxious about entertainment that you’ll sit idly by and wait for the Emmy’s on Sunday (by the way — any thoughts on best comedy: Entourage, Family Guy, How I met Your Mother, etc? Or dramas: Big Love, Breaking Bad, Lost or Mad Men/ My money’s on Mad Men for the win with dramas, btw) Anyway, let’s say that while you’re killing time waiting for the Emmy’s (or not!), you head out to the cineplex. There are five notable films in theaters this weekend –“Jennifer’s Body” (why don’t we just go ahead and call it Megan’s Body because with Megan Fox starring, that may be the film’s number one draw. That and the fact that it was written by Diablo Cody, who brought us Juno.) So there’s that horror flick. Then we have the romantic comedy “Love Happens ” with Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhardt. One’s a sef-help guru, the other a lost sould and of course…they meet. Then
we have the animated (although it seems trifling to call movies like this animated since they are so far above and beyond what you might traditionally think of as animated nowadays) “Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs” featuring the voices of Anna Faris and Bill Hader. A third movie option for the weekend would be Matt Damon’s new starrer “The
Informant” where he plays a whistle blower in corporate America who hasn’t quite got the hang of it. Then of course there’s a great period piece in theaters this weekend called “Bright Star”all about an English poet and the very salacious affair he conducts at a rather young age. This one stars Abbie Cornish in a performance that an awful lot of people are already talking about.
So there you have it. Big movies opening theatres this weekend. Will you go? Will you take the kids? Does anything catch your fancy? And of course, if you do go to a movie please voice your choice in today’s poll and let us know how you would prioritize the weekends top three releases?
