OK, I’ll stop carping on X3 for awhile (maybe). For all the things I hated about it, at least it wasn’t as lame as watching duds like M:I:III or RV.
~ We should have seen this one coming. Universal Pictures will be making a movie “based on facts” (see below for my opinion on those) about the aftermath of Katrina, called “Hurricane Season”, about a high school football team’s struggles dealing with displaced students and rebuilding the community. No truth to the rumors that former FEMA Director Mike Brown will play the snide administrator role normally reserved for Anthony Heald.
Once again, only one new movie is being released nationwide this week. Are they trying to put me out of work? OK, then…since I don’t have another article until next Friday, I’ll include the one movie cutely being released on June 6th.
Starring: Jennifer Anniston and Vince Vaughn
Plot: A couple splitting up both want to maintain possession of their expensive Chicago apartment, so they maintain living together although they “hate” each other. In other words; a remake of “War of the Roses” without the dark comedy chandelier ending.
But we really haven’t seen that much on the E! Channels and their ilk, have we? No Jen and Vin on every friggin’ talk show on the planet…no special appearances on lame news casts…not much of anything.
Starring: Lieve Schreiber, Julia Stiles, Pete Postlethwaite
Plot: A government official and his wife come to think that their adopted son may actually be the son of the devil. No truth to the rumor that this story was adapted from the life of my son.
Glory Road – Josh Lucas plays coach Don Haskins in another one of those “based on a true story” stories…that uses real people and real events, but change facts around whenever they feel like it. If that doesn’t bother you, then this would be a great flick to rent. I personally don’t like these types of movies…unless they make it about me and Clive Owens portrays me and it shows me scoring the winning touchdown for the Browns in the Super Bowl.
Running Scared – Totally disgustingly bad movie with Paul Walker, Russian pedophiles, and Dawn of the Dead senseless gross violence without the charming zombies. If you watch this, part of your brain will try to escape out your ears.
