This Week in Movies – 5/17/10

I got sick of not knowing what came out. We’ll see how long this lasts.

In Theaters:

  • Shrek Forever After – Nothing I say here will keep people from seeing this movie. For what it’s worth, I enjoyed the 2nd one.
  • MacGruber – I’m skeptical of any 30 second SNL skit made into a movie, but the commercials say it’s funny. Plus it’s written by the geniuses behind most of the digital shorts. I’ll catch it on DVD, I’m sure people will like it. Bonus points if Betty White’s in it.

On Video:

  • Valentine’s Day – This romantic-comedy employs the shotgun method of filmmaking, fill your movie with as many names as you can and you’re bound to hit something. Anne Hathaway and Topher Grace hit Megan, so I’m screwed.
  • Invictus – I’ll watch anything directed by Clint Eastwood and anything Matt Damon’s in. I guess I have to watch this one twice.
  • The Spy Next Door – Stars Jackie Chan, George Lopez, and the back of my hand to your face if you even think of renting this.
  • Extraordinary Measures – I could never figure out what this one was about from the trailers. Apparently some kid is sick and Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser try to invent some sort of super-drug to cure him before Keri Russell takes over the world with her curly brown locks. At least, that’s what I got from the trailers.
