This Week in Movies – 6/24/09

Michael Bay doesn't make movies, he makes explosions. The movie's only there to develop the explosions.

In Theaters:

  • Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen –  You may have heard of this one, it’s about a bunch of giant robot cars set on world domination and the giant robot cars trying to stop them. Oh, and there’s some humans mixed in there, namely Shia LeBouf and Megan Fox. Oh, and some explosions too … lots and lots of explosions. It is a Michael Bay flick after all. Came out today. Watch it in IMAX. Portions were filmed in IMAX on 70mm film (standard film is 35mm, IMAX doubles that and turns the picture on its side, making the picture 9 times larger than your standard release … I told you, giant robots), and let’s face it, if you’re going to spend all that money on the theater, you might as well get the biggest robots you can. This has turned into the largest description in the history of This Week in Movies. Michael Bay would be proud. BOOM.

  • My Sister’s Keeper – I haven’t heard anything about this one, but it stars Cameron Diaz, so I wouldn’t watch it with your eyes.

Past Video Releases of Note:

  • Gran Torino – Clint Eastwood directs Clint Eastwood as a crotchety old man who learns to love his punk kid neighbors. It looks really good despite my lame description, but I have a platonic man-crush on Clint Eastwood, wrinkles and all.

  • The International – Clive Owen and Naomi Watts go to war against a national bank. It got mediocre reviews, but looks like a fun enough rent.

  • I am a fan of the transformers movie. I watched the first part of this movie and it is quite unique movie story line and the movie is enjoyable.
