The Movie Release Wasteland
It’s that time of year folks. It’s time for movie studios to dump their trash onto the movie going public. “Paul Blart: Mall Cop”. “Notorious”. “My Bloody Valentine 3-D”. “Hotel For Dogs”. Good Lord. This has to be one of the weakest movie release weekends in box office history. At least “Defiance” wants to be a serious movie, even if the reviews are pretty poor right now.
So again, I implore you to go see something like “The Wrestler”, “Gran Torino”, or “Revolutionary Road”. Next week could bring us another decent flick, “Killshot”. Then, we have “Taken” on the 30th, “Crossing Over” on February 27th, and finally, “Watchmen” on March 6th. Can you believe there is actually another movie, “All About Steve”, due for wide release on the 6th of March? Talk about dead in the water.
