Next Week's Movies

Capitalism: A Love Story - The Michael Moore backlash has come pretty close to consuming him now. Every film he releases gets slighter lesser profile and slightly more derogatory reviews. None more so then this. Expectancy Level: 6/10

The Crazies: I don't want to come out and commit to saying this will be good, because that's a path fraught with trouble in regards to a horror remake. But still, I liked the trailer and this film appears to have more balls then its siblings. Expectancy Level: 6/10

Extraordinary Measures: Kids with cancer, Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford who's old guy career has trainwrecked a little. This just looks the definition of disposable. Expectancy Level: 5/10

From Paris With Love: From the director of Taken comes another clearly just above mediocre action movie, in which Travolta is clearly going to be about 27 rungs over the top and Rhys Meyers will be his usual ineffectual self. Expectancy Level: 6/10

Leap Year: Clearly horrible romantic comedy starring two time Oscar nominee Amy Adams. Somehow these chick flicks keep drawing in credible actresses, also see Anne Hathaway who as well as Rachel Getting Married was seen in Bride Wars and Valentine's day. No. Expectancy Level: 2/10

Micmacs: The new Jeunet film, which seems to be coming after quite a lengthy hiatus looks interesting if not wowing. Expectancy Level: 7/10

Everybody's Fine: Boy is this week a dumpsite. This badly reviewed family drama manages to make a film starring Robert De Niro, Sam Rockwell and Drew Barrymore seem utterly unappetising: Expectancy Level: 4/10

Well fuck this shit. 7 films in one week means that at the very least three are getting passed over. Leap Year seems a safe bet. Ditto Everybody's Fine. Regardless this is sure to be a busy week for me.
