This Week in Movies – 9/15/08

In Theaters:

  • Ghost Town – The dude from the British Office sees dead people.
  • Igor – John Cusack is a cartoon hunchback with delusions of grandeur. I really want to see this, but that may just be all the visions of “Eye-gore” left in my head from Young Frankenstein.
  • Lakeview Terrace – Samuel L. Jackson plays a cop who doesn’t know how to play nice. Predictability ensues.
  • My Best Friend’s Girl – Pie boy and Dane Cook in another romantic comedy. Dane Cook plays a douchebag who acts like a fool. It’s a stretch, I know.
  • Appaloosa (Limited) – Ed Harris and Viggo Mortensen play lawmen in the old west. I don’t care what happens, I’m already on board. Someone fly me to New York or LA please.
  • Battle in Seattle (Limited) – A fictional recreation of the 1999 Seattle riots using actual audio and some actual video. I’m interested. Someone in NYC go see this and tell me if it’s any good.
  • A Thousand Years of Good Prayers (Limited) – An old man from Beijing tracks down and visits his estranged daughter. Despite my lame synopsis, this one looks worth watching.

On Video:

  • Made of Honor – This movie has been clinically proven to cause rampant stupidity among lab rats.
  • Speed Racer – One thing’s for sure, it’s fun to look at.
  • The Love Guru –  Don’t encourage him.
  • 88 Minutes – Al Pacino hasn’t made a decent movie in at least a decade.
