After a two-week sabbatical, I am back (and hopefully I’ll go back to a regular posting schedule).
Anyways this week the film I am most excited for is the hyper-violent comicbook adaptation Kick-Ass. The critics (with the exception of Roger Ebert) seem to echo that sentiment with the film currently having a 76% Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The other major release this week comes filed in the category of “remakes that didn’t need to be made.” This would of course be Death at a Funeral, which was originally a hilarious British film directed by Frank Oz and is now low-brow comedy staring Chris Rock. The critics seem to agree with my feeling with the film only having a 43% Fresh rating (though the Toronto Star inexplicably gave the film 3/4 stars). I advise that you check out the original instead.
And that’s This Weekend in Movies.
