The turd-filled post summer lull seems to be giving way to the pre-awards season fun times this weekend, as a couple films open that might actually be good.
Appaloosa (See above)
Ed Harris directs a western starring himself and Viggo Mortensen. Consensus seems to be that it’s nothing new, but a solid movie nonetheless. Personally, if I want to see cowboys I’ll look in the mirror. *cocks finger*
Ricky Gervais stars in a comedy that seems to have stolen a plot from Over Her Dead Body. And yet every critic seems to love it. Anyone find it strange that none of the ghosts are old people? See grandma, even in the afterlife no one wants your smelly ass around.
Animated. Not Pixar. Pass.
Samuel Jackson stars as a cop trying to run his white neighbor out of town. Directed by the guy who did Wicker Man. No Nic Cage in a bear suit? Pass.
My Best Friend’s Girl
Zany Dane Cook stars alongside Lazy Kate Hudson in movie that’s like one or five you’ve already seen, except way worse. I smell Oscar! He’s the homeless guy who eats pigeon shit and sleeps under my window.
