I want to see the special effects in 2012, but the rest of the movie looks and sounds like a giant turd. It's annoying because I really do want to see the visual effects on the big screen, but I just have no desire to sit through the actual film itself. And to make matters worse -- the film is 2 hours and 40 minutes! I think I'll wait until Blu Ray.
From Netflix I've got the French rom-com Love Etc., and from Blockbuster I've got this summer's critically reviled rom-com The Ugly Truth. It looks like harmless crap, but I'm a fan of Gerry Butler, and even though Heigl is apparently an uber-biatch, she's easy to look at for 90 minutes.
An Education opens up at the one art house in the area, so if I don't see that this weekend, I'll see it sooner than later.
Fantastic Mr. Fox has opened, but only in NY and LA for the moment; it looks like a cute romp. I'll see it when it plays near me.
