New Releases for 4/29/2011

5 Fast 5 Furious

Just when the world didn't have enough stupid titles, here comes Fast Five. The previews say it's the best one yet, and I'll just have to take their word for it. Apparently, the Rock is the main character in this one, and there are spin-off plans with him in mind. Possibly a good idea. The Rock is a really talented, but poorly casted, actor. It's good to see him back in action movies (Walking Tall and the Rundown are great underrated flicks), and apparently Faster (somehow, not a Fast and the Furious spin-off) isn't too bad despite flopping at the box office.

Hoodwinked Too! Hood VS. Evil

Just when the world didn't have enough cookie cutter 3D CGI crapfests, here comes this. Apparently the first Hoodwinked (which came out way back in 2006. Five years is forever compared to most of these CGI cash-ins) was good. But it also had Anne Hathaway, who has gotten slightly more popular in that time.

Dylan Dog: Dead of Night

This doesn't look horrible, despite the bad reviews. The general consensus is it's a pale imitator to the comic book, but since the majority of America has never read the Italian comic, that shouldn't be a problem for most people. I'll reserve my judgment until I see it, but I can tell you for sure it isn't as good as the amazing Cemetery Man/Dellamorte Dellamore, the first Dylan Dog movie.


A Disney movie aimed at teens and Glee fans that was made for nothing. It's times like this when I cherish my Disney stock.

Cave of Forgotten Dreams

A 3D documentary by Warner Herzog that's probably opening on three screens at the most this weekend. Since those screens aren't anywhere around here, watch his appearance on the Boondocks instead.


  1. only one ive seen is Dylan, and its not too bad

  2. Fast Five looks like an abomination which no merciful God would allow. I can't wait to see it :/

  3. I've always wanted to know what the "Rock" was cooking when I would watch him in the ring.. But now, not so much.

    Some of these movies on the list as facepalms worthy

  4. going to see the rock in fast five tomorrow, cant wait

  5. I'm not sure how to feel about the Fast Five. I'm a big fan of Fast and the Furious but it should have died...long ago.

    The original Hoodwinked was good. This new one looks like shit.

    Dylan Dog looks promising and I do want to check it out.

    Prom..yeah, no.

    I have seen anything on Cave of Forgotten Dreams but a "3d documentary" does sound appealing. I will have to check it out.

  6. Nice blog, fast five is prob gonna be bad
