What do you want to see this weekend in the movie theaters? Well there are some fresh new movies out and I’ll tell give you just a few suggestions what you should check out on the weekend of Janauary 8th, 2010, the first film weekend of the year.
Daybreakers – In the year 2017, a plague has transformed most every human into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, the fractured dominant race plots their survival; meanwhile, a researcher (Hawke) works with a covert band of vamps on a way to save humankind. (Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill)
My Take: Seems like an interesting take on the vampire genre, plus it’s getting away from those stupid teenage vamp/love stories that make you want to gag and tear out your eyes. Hey it’s got Willem Dafoe. See It
Youth In Revolt – Like most teens, young Nick Twisp (Cera) is ruled by his libido. And from the recesses of a trailer park in Northern California, Twisp concocts a plan — make that multiple schemes — to lose his virginity to a local girl, the precocious Sheeni Saunders (Doubleday). (Michael Cera, Portia Doubleday, Ray Liotta)
My Take: A Michael Cera movie where he seems to be out of his element and plays something not Michael Cera so much. Well he does play his normal roles, but takes on a second role at the same time. Looks good to me. See it
Leap Year – Anna (Adams) has spent four years with her boyfriend, Jeremy (Scott), without a wedding proposal. During his business trip to Dublin, Anna opts to act on Leap Day, an Irish tradition that encourages women to propose to men on the date February 29th. A re-routed plane trip, however, lands her at the door of a Welsh innkeeper (Goode), who might offer a diversion of his own. (Amy Adams, Matthew Goode, Adam Scott)
My Take: The commercials make this movie look absolutely terrible. Terrible. But I recently saw the theatrical trailer, and was intrigued slightly. Not a great romantic comedy, but it could be ok? Rent it
