This Week in Movies – 5/26/10

Update: So you probably already realized this, but I’m an idiot and posted next week’s movies this week. Hopefully I didn’t ruin your weekend.

In Theaters:

  • Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time – Donnie Darko leaves the Mountain and dons a British accent to do some Parkour. It’s a Bruckheimer movie, so expect some big dumb fun, but it’s also based on a video game, so watch at your own risk. Then again, he did make a theme park ride into a pretty entertaining set of movies, but Gyllenhaal is no Johnny Depp.
  • Sex and the City 2 – I won’t waste your time. You already know if you’re going to be watching this movie or not.

On Video:

  • Dear John – Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum write some dude named John a bunch of letters, or something like that.
  • The Road – Post-Apocalyptic tale of Viggo Mortensen and his son struggling to survive in an ashy wasteland. Buy the book, watch the movie, then lend them both to a friend. This is storytelling at its finest.

  • I used to play that Prince of Persia game many years ago! It was a really pixel-looking game full of adventure. Probably won't see the movie though.
