This Week in Movies – 1/19/09

In Theaters:

  • Inkheart – Brendan Fraser stars in a 2-hour Public Library commercial.
  • Revolutionary Road – Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet are a couple, this time without a boat. I’m not a Leo fan, but I love Sam Mendes (director, American Beauty, Road to Perdition, Jarhead) and critics love this thing, so I’m going to see it. I just wish I wasn’t so poor so I wouldn’t have to wait for video.
  • Underworld: Rise of the Lycans – Vampires vs. Werewolves, the prequel. This time sans Beckinsale. No thanks.

On Video:

  • Saw V – Yup, they made another one.
  • Max Payne – I say skip the movie and watch someone play the video game. It’s far more compelling than watching Marky Mark try to scowl.
  • Igor – Jon Cusack as a system-bucking Mad Scientist’s assistant. Sign me up.
  • The ExpressRudy retold starring a black man, except the black man’s actually good at football.
  • City of Ember – Bill Murray rules a city facing death and entrusts a couple kids to unlock the secrets of the city. Bill Murray for President.
  • Henry Poole is Here – Luke Wilson has a holy wall.
  • Repo! The Genetic Opera – Paris Hilton stars in another train wreck. Click the link to the left and watch the trailer, you will not be disappointed.
