New Movies Opening Friday December 4, 2009

new moviesHmm. Depending on your mood this weekend, you might find a movie worth seeing. Brothers peaks my interest and there’s lots being said about Up In the Air.

I’d definitely stay away from Transylmania and heaven knows I wouldn’t see the crap in theaters right now, particularly anything having to do with vampires and hormonal girls. See what new movies are out this Friday.


Armored

armored movie

A crew of officers at an armored transport security firm risk their lives when they embark on the ultimate heist against their own company. Armed with a seemingly fool-proof plan, the men plan on making off with a fortune with harm to none. Of course, we wouldn’t expect everything to be this easy, now would we?

Rated: PG-13
Starring: Matt Dillon, Jean Reno, Laurence Fishburne, Amaury Nolasco, Fred Ward
Watch the Armored trailer


Brothers

brothers movie

When his Black Hawk helicopter is shot down in the mountains Sam (Tobey Maguire) is presumed dead and the Cahill family suddenly faces a shocking void. Sam’s brother tries to fill in for him by assuming new-found responsibility for himself, Grace, and the children. In the grief and strangeness of their new lives, Grace and Tommy are naturally drawn together. Uh-oh. I smell trouble….Even if Brothers sucks, I really like this trailer. It’s intense.

Rated: R
Starring: Tobey Maguire, Jake Gyllenhaal, Natalie Portman, Sam Shepard, Clifton Collins, Jr.

Everybody’s Fine

everybody's fine

In Everybody’s Fine, a widower (Robert De Niro) takes his grown kids on a road trip in order to reconnect with them after his wife’s death. Personally, I like De Niro but I don’t have high hopes for this movie. De Niro looks like he’s trying to act like the nice guy and that’s just not his character.

Rated: PG-13
Starring: Robert De Niro, Kate Beckinsale, Drew Barrymore, Sam Rockwell
Watch the Everybody’s Fine trailer


Serious Moonlight

serious moonlight

In Serious Moonlight, when high-powered attorney Louise (Meg Ryan) learns that her husband plans to leave her after 13 years of marriage to run off with his twentysomething girlfriend, she impulsively decides to take drastic action. She ties up Ian in their country house, and refuses to let him go until they talk things through. (I like this approach!!) Naturally, he resists, and things take an even worse turn for the couple when a young hooligan hears her husband’s cries for help, and decides to rob the couple blind instead of helping the hapless husband.

Rated: R
Starring: Meg Ryan, Timothy Hutton, Kristen Bell, Justin Long, Nathan Dean
Watch the Serious Moonlight trailer


The Strip

the strip

The Strip is a character-driven comedy dissecting the lives of five employees of a low-end electronics chain called, Electri-City. The ensemble of colorful, yet grounded, characters takes us deeper into the monotonous world of working at a strip mall. Bound by the constraints of suburban life and a 1/4 mile of strip mall, they, like everybody else, dream of something more. I’ve been here before. But does it really take a movie to tell us that working retail sucks?

Rated: PG-13
Starring: Dave Foley, Rodney Scott, Billy Aaron Brown

Transylmania

transylmania

In Transylmania, a motley group of college students embarks on the wildest, sexiest, most outrageous semester abroad ever at “Razvan University.” Located deep in the heart of the “cursed land” of Transylvania in a centuries-old castle, Razvan isn’t your typical institution of higher learning–and the black leather-clad professors, three-foot-tall dean, instruction in crucifix-wielding, and topless vampiresses lurking in dark corners are just the start.

Seriously, this movie looks so stupid, I considered not even posting about it.

Rated: R
Starring: Musetta Vander, Natalie Garza, Tony Denman, Nicole Garza
Watch the Transylmania trailer


Until the Light Takes Us

until the light takes us

The documentary, Until the Light Takes Us, takes a look at the underground anti-consumerist metal scene that gained popularity in Norway in the 1990s. Led by the messages of bands from the black metal scene, members of the movement eventually followed alleged leader Varg Vikernes to commit such violent acts as burning churches all over the country. These look like some pretty evil dudes.

Rated: NR

Up In the Air

up in the air

Clooney plays Ryan Bingham, a business man who spends 360 days a year on the road doing the dirty work of firing employees for corporate America.  Trouble comes along as a newcomer tries to revolutionize the industry by doing the firing online rather than in person. Bingham begins to see his nomadic life in a different light as he begins to realize luxurious hotels and airline perks aren’t all what they’re cracked up to be.

Before Up in the Air even hits theaters,the film has already been dubbed by the National Board of Review as the Best Picture of the Year. Not only that, but there has already been rumors of Oscar awards.  However, it’s all still ‘up in the air‘ as many other film critics have been giving it less than complimentary reviews.

Rated: R
Starring: George Clooney, Vera Farmiga, Anna Kendrick, Jason Bateman, Danny R. McBride

  • I thought ‘Brothers’ was amazing all around, great storytelling in particular – the director went from one point to the next without messing around
