Weekend Picks

Happy Friday – we are in full fall mode! At least that is what I think of when I see all the kiddies going to school in the morning. Unfortunately for “grown up” cinemagoers, there is still a little time before the awards courting (read: serious) season begins. So what we end up having are an interesting array of films that I can best describe as not having blockbuster audience appeal. But hey, you never know.

This weekend I decided to try to do something a little different. Based on the films that opened this week, including:

  • The Words
  • The Cold Light of Day
  • Bachelorette
  • Hello I Must Be Going
  • The Inbetweeners Movie
  • Keep the Lights On
  • [REC]³ Génesis

… I will pick one that most piques my interest.

 

My Best Bet

The Inbetweeners Movie: This movie is actually a year old; it was initially released in the UK in the summer of 2011 where it enjoyed a successful box office run. And for good reason – it was based on the irreverent (and often lewd/rude) teen comedy. So if you are a fan of the series (like I was, occasionally), I suppose this would be something you would want to watch. Interesting side note: I think that a US remake (a la Skins) is currently airing on MTV. I cannot imagine, however, how wildly OTT the humor will be since it resides outside the bounds of televisual restrictions.

 

Aside from movies, I will likely be watching the conclusion of the tennis action taking place in nearby Flushing, Queens 🙂

 

But what about you? What will you be watching?

  1. Such a bummer that The Cold Light of Day is getting VERY dismal reviews. Ah well, I might wait until the Blu-ray even though I REALLY like Henry Cavill!

  2. Yea I’m not watching any of these movies any time soon. I have 2010’s Aftershock which is pretty good except for some truly cheesy and overly patriotic moments that you can find in many mainland China movies.

    • I think the film industry does itself a slight disservice with the current release cycle they have. It has become predictable to the point that we know when the good (and not so good) films are going to come out. Close observes of course know this is another dumping ground before things are “for our consideration.”
