Quick Hit Movie Friday! Joe Simpson Is Evil, A New Emo-Free Spidey, & Channing Tatum Plays A Soldier…Again

These are the new movie release dark days folks. The chances of actually seeing a half-decent new movie have gone by the wayside for a month or two. Case in point: “Dear John” and “From Paris With Love”. Is it possible for two movies to be released on the same day that are so awful for completely opposite reasons? “Dear John” looks like an even weaker version of “The Notebook” while “From Paris With Love” looks like…like…well…like dogs***. So if you are a sappy chick that likes crappy romance or a meathead guy that digs crap action flicks, it’s all out there for you today.

Of course, this meathead wants to see Mel Gibson get revenge all over yo’ face in “Edge Of Darkness”.

  • Who has seen “The Red Riding Trilogy”? After reading this EW.com article, it sounds damn awesome. Creepy, but awesome. They are apparently an adaptation of the even better book series…has anyone heard of these mysterious “book” things I keep hearing about?
  • Is this Percy Jackson kid going to be the next Peter Parker/Spider Man? The word is that he is talking with Sony about the possibility. Sadly, that third flick really soured me on the entire idea of a Spider Man movie. Besides, hasn’t Batman and Iron Man cornered the super hero market these days?
  • The genius that is Tim Curry has joined the already impressive cast of “Burke and Hare”, a dark comedy set in the 1800s about Scottish corpse thieves. Simon Pegg and Andy Serkis are already playing the two leads, which means that I’ll be beating down the door to see it. Does anybody else think that Tim Curry was badass in “Legend”? No? Well…me either then.
  • Is Joe Simpson as bad as say…Lindsay Lohan’s dad? Hardly. Is he pure evil that needs to be stopped? Most definitely. Joe now has a deal with Nickelodeon to produce a show about a pyschiatrist raising two daughters in Texas…how original! Where did he get this idea?
  • Finally…Flicksided.com picks their ten favorite Bill Murray roles since 1990. Why just since 1990? That leaves out “Ghostbusters” and “Stripes”. Since Bill Murray is one of my several Leaders and Life Coaches, here is my top ten. Have a bitchin’ weekend.

10.  Grimm, “Quick Change”

9. Ernie McCracken, “Kingpin”

8. John, “Stripes”

7. Jeff Slater, “Tootsie”

6. Steve Zissou, “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou”

5. Phil, “Groundhog Day”

4. Carl Spackler, “Caddyshack”
