Movie Releases: Friday March 27th


- SYNOPSIS: A Senegalese taxi driver (Souléymane Sy Savané) befriends an elderly man (Red West) who is determined to kill himself.

This is one of those films that is probably really good, but I'm going to wait till it's available on Netflix.

- SYNOPSIS: When California girl Susan Murphy is unwittingly clobbered by a meteor full of outer space gunk on her wedding day, she mysteriously grows to 49-feet-11-inches tall. The military jumps into action and Susan is captured and secreted away to a covert government compound. There, she is renamed Ginormica and placed in confinement with a ragtag group of Monsters.

3D animated film featuring voices by Seth Rogen, Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Stephen Colbert, Hugh Laurie, Will Arnett, Kiefer Sutherland and Rainn Wilson. Yeahhhhh, I'll watch it.

+ Monsters VS Aliens [Roger Ebert]



- SYNOPSIS: Charlie Bank’s (Jesse Eisenberg) sheltered world at his Ivy League campus is shaken when Mick (Jason Ritter), an old acquaintance with a violent past, unexpectedly shows up at his dorm room. Intrigued by Charlie’s privileged lifestyle, the charismatic Mick quickly wins over Charlie’s friends and his crush, Mary (Eva Amurri) as he seamlessly integrates himself into Charlie’s life. Unnerved yet also in awe of Mick’s easy charm, Charlie’s unresolved feelings of jealousy, admiration and fear –as well as an unspoken secret between the two—threatens to come to a head with ruinous consequences.

This film is Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst's directional debut. Which tells me it's probably not going to very good.... but to be fair it looks pretty decent. I'll probably check it out at some point, but let me know if any of you catch this.
