Film Fridays: Unstoppable Extraterrestrials

Out this weekend are a few new releases that don’t necessarily have everyone talking at least from what I can tell…

Unstoppable

After more than a year of reading about Denzel Washington and Chris Pine’s new feature, “Unstoppable” finally hits theaters today. “Unstoppable” is about a runaway train, carrying a dangerous cargo of explosives. Watch the trailer below.

Now, I don’t know why, but for some reason the trailer is just not doing it for me. Call me cold, but even the storyline with the children on another train is not making me want to see this movie. Anyways, we’ll see how it does at the box office. The rest of America may be compelled to watch it.

 

Skyline

As for another big release, “Skyline” also comes out today. “Skyline” is about aliens, who come to Los Angeles and take the city’s citizens to an uncertain fate. The movie stars “Scrubs” actor Donald Faison as well as Eric Balfour and Scottie Thompson.

With Donald Faison being the most well known actor in this sci-fi thriller, I don’t know how I feel about “Skyline” either….So, for me this weekend is looking more and more Netflix friendly. lol

Anyways, here’s the trailer for “Skyline.”

I have to admit, the trailer does look pretty cool. People on YouTube, who appear to have watched the movie ILLEGALLY lol, also say it was good. Hmmm….What do you guys think? Should I give any of these movies a second thought? OR should I give Will Ferrell’s “Megamind” a try? After all, it did make over $40 million last weekend, and I’m not sure if I want to see LA destroyed by aliens. I live here, and well the thought of dying here depresses me… lol  😉

 

Film Fridays: Mega Your Mind

Does that title even make sense? lol Honestly, I am exhausted from work, so my brain is a little fried…

Anyways…

Megamind

For months, it seems like I have been watching the trailers for DreamWorks‘ Megamind. So, why didn’t I know that this movie would be out this weekend?!?! Oh, probably because I have limited funds and don’t care about movies until further notice…lol

Well, for those of you, who can afford to pay the $12-$17 for a ticket, I say why not check out this latest animated-actioner, starring Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, and funnyman Will Ferrell?! It looks fun enough.

And, as far as other new releases are concerned, nothing is really interesting me at the moment. All I can say is that when part 1 of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hollows hits theaters November 19th, I will be there! I’m also patiently waiting for Disney’s Tron: Legacy. This movie is taking foreeeeeever to come out, but when it does, I just know that it will be HUGE. Not to mention, there’s already an animated version of Tron in the works for television. Exciting. 🙂

Film Fridays: We Love Jackass

As much as I’d rather promote a more “quality” movie, I already know that a number of you will be running to the theaters to see Jackass 3D. Hollywood keeps saying that because of the hard economic times etc. etc., people are responding to all things comedy. If that’s true, then Jackass should have no problem at the box office this weekend. I have to admit though, the trailers have been having me pretty entertained.

Watch it now!

If you’re not into Jackass or feel as though you’re a little too “mature” for such a film, don’t worry. Red which stars Helen Mirren, Bruce Willis, and Morgan Freedman also comes out this weekend. Red is a comedy about retired spies.

Watch the trailer below.

It will be interesting to see what movie takes the top spot once the weekend is over. For some reason, I’m thinking Jackass. After all, the trailer does have over 4 million views on YouTube…lol
