This Weekend in Movies – November 20, 2009

The big release this week is The Twilight Saga: New Moon.  The reviews haven’t been too great with film currently having a 29% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

However, the Twilight sequel still seems destined to dominated, since I doubt that Blind Side (66% Fresh) and Planet 51 (18% Fresh) will offer much competition.

In limited release sees two good-reviewed films by some popular international directors.  Those would be Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (89% Fresh) and John Woo’s Red Cliff (87% Fresh).

And that’s this weekend in movies.
