This Weekend in Movies – May 1, 2009

After suffering from one of the biggest film leaks ever, X-Men Origins: Wolverine is officially released to theatres. The critics haven’t been so kind to the film, as it only has a 38% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

At least it is better than the 26% Fresh rating received by the romcom counter-programing in the form of Ghosts from Girlfriends Past.

Personally, I’d take a superhero film over a romantic comedy that rips off Charles Dickens anytime.

And that’s this weekend in movies.
