(Hot damn, now that’s what I call a wild rumpus.)
Opening this weekend (trailers after the jump)
Where the Wild Things Are
Holy hell, am I hallucinating? Is this movie actually finally coming out? Excuse me while I jizz sperms of happiness. It’s getting sort of mixed reviews, but most of the negative ones seem to be coming from a-holes I never agree with anyway, like Lou Lumenick and Mick LaSalle (this guy liked First Knight and trashed Braveheart, yet still has a job). I won’t get to see it until probably Monday and I don’t want to be a bandwagon jumper, but with Spike Jonze, I say it’s awesome until proven otherwise. I can’t wait.
Another one from the hell-yeah-it’s-about-freakin-time files. Though I still think the ending is dumb, aside from that it’s the best parody movie I’ve seen since the Naked Guns. Michael Jai White is amazing. In Obama’s America, I just know black kids are going to be leaving the theater cheering “Right on, right on, right on.”
Expanding wide because of near-universally good reviews, will be easily the most profitable film of the year. Why can’t this happen more often? Instead we usually get Couples Retreat, which everyone knew was bad from the beginning.
Ooh, a horror movie remake, this would be really exciting if I was 13. And a dumbass.
New York, I Love You
Oh boy, twelve filmmakers, one of whom is Brett Ratner, direct a love letter to the city that never stops bragging about itself. I imagine I’ll hate this as much as I hate people who say “only in New York!”, as much as I hated people in San Diego bragging about the weather. You people realize they say “only in ____” in every GD city, right? Except Irvine. Where the Wild Things Are
