This Weekend in Movies – August 22, 2008

This weekend, I step out of the mainstream and check out the independent film Hamlet 2, which is one of the better reviewed films of the week with a 65% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

All the major releases this week were given a rotten rating. These include Death Race (33% Fresh), The House Bunny (53% Fresh), The Long Shots (37% Fresh), and The Rocker (35% Fresh).

I still may check out Death Race at some point, but I definitely plan to skip the other films.

And that’s this weekend in movies.
