This Week in Movies – 4/14/08

In Theaters Friday:

  • The Forbidden Kingdom – Jackie Chan and Jet Li together at last as they try to free the Monkey King. I think I’ll wait for video.
  • 88 Minutes – Al Pacino has 88 minutes to live. Poor Al Pacino. That’s exactly how long it took him to destroy his career.
  • Forgetting Sarah Marshall – The tall guy from Freaks and Geeks can’t get over the lightning girl from Heroes until the annoying girl from That 70s Show comes around. Another Judd Apatow flick. Could be funny, but I’m not paying 20 bucks to find out.

In Select Theaters Friday:

On Video Tuesday:

  • Juno – I liked it, but I don’t think I’ll buy it.
  • Lars and the Real Girl – The movie that should have won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar. I will buy this movie. Probably my favorite movie that came out last year.
  • Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead – Ethan Hawke and Philip Seymour Hoffman plot to rob their parents’ store when times get tough. Things go wrong. A thriller ensues. Could be interesting.
  • Alien vs. Predator: Requiem – Aliens fighting Predators: Requiem. I don’t even know what that word means, but neither does most of this movie’s target audience.
