Opening This Weekend: Bride of Hangover

Natalie Portman is sitting this bachelorette party out 




Bridesmaids -- It's like the Hangover. Except for girls. Also, not as funny. I would completely rule this out, because it looks like it is just about girls being raunchy and "unlady" like with no real story or humor. However, it amazingly has a 91% at Rotten Tomatoes. Also Kristen Wiig is hilarious, so maybe there actually is a good movie here. I'm sure there are much worse films to have a girl drag you to.

Priest -- Based on the hit Korean comic book. Whoever said that doesn't exactly understand the meaning of the word hit. Besides, if they really wanted to do a Korean vampire movie based on a comic, they should have gone with the infinitely superior Rebirth. Anyway, this looks better than most of the other annual vampire action movies we have gotten the last few years. I also didn't think Legion (director Stewart's first movie) looked too bad either. I have never seen so much nothing happen in movie before.

Hesher -- This has been getting some good hype. It's been out for awhile but it is finally hitting somewhat-wide release. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a junkie.It also stars Natalie Portman in her fourth film of the year. She was getting them all in before she hit full motherhood.

Everything Must Go -- I'm not a big Will Ferrell fan (he's only good in small doses) but his comedies can always guarantee a few laughs. His indy films such as this and Stranger Than Fiction can only guarantee you boredom and self-hatred.


Go For It! -- Because it's been a few weeks since the last urban dancing movie came out.

I believe that's everything for the weekend. I think your best bet is to just see Thor ag...wait, there's one more movie coming out. And it's a doozy...



A Serbian Film -- I never though I would ever see this hit America. Granted, it is in very limited release, but this has been picking up bannings all around the world. It's about a retired porn star who gets back into the business to save his family. That doesn't sound too bad. Well, I didn't mention the graphic depictions of rape, necrophilia  and pedophilia. It has widely been considered the most disturbing film of all time. But I'm sure there are much worse films to have a guy drag you to.

  1. I haven't (had the pleasure to have?) seen any of these, but they do indeed not seem like the typical Hollywood movies. I'll keep these in mind when I've got time and money for movies!

  3. The hard partying of hangover is usually guy stuff, girls don't normally do it, so the movies wouldn't be as awesome.

  8. Hangover wasn't that good, and if this wasn't as good as Hangover then it must be pretty bad :(
