This Week in Movies – 4/30/08

In Theaters Friday:

  • Iron Man – Jon Favreau directs Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark. Is it wrong of me to hope Megan doesn’t really want to see this movie so I can see it this weekend while she’s out of town? I think I might be more excited for this one than Indiana Jones or Batman. Shocking, I know.
  • Made of Honor – Patrick Dempsey gets made the maid of honor after he made the mistake of being made the best friend of the girl by which he’d like to get made a man. Not to be confused with Maid in Manhattan, Maid to Order, or the thousands of other Maid variations found on IMDb

On Video Yesterday:

  • 27 Dresses – Katherine Heigl has a lot of dresses. The End.
  • The Golden Compass – Nicole Kidman hangs out with a bunch of mythical creatures that hate Christianity.
  • How She Move – Some girl tries to dance her way out of the hood. I want to know if this ever happens in real life. Are there really underground clubs scattered across the US in which happy-go-lucky teens band together to battle with the power of dance? Seriously, I want to know.
  • The Diving Bell and the Butterfly – True story about a paralyzed editor who communicates by blinking. Supposed to be really powerful.
