For the first time in recent memory, I won't be heading to the movie theater this Memorial Day weekend. Sex and the City 2 got utterly destroyed by the critics so no thank you. Prince of Persia looks like leftovers from The Mummy and it's based on a video game that I've never played, so, once again, no thank you. What the hell has happened to Jerry Bruckheimer? What happened to ass-kicking actioners like The Rock and Con Air and Enemy of the State and Crimson Tide? He seems totally focused on family fare (National Treasure, Prince of Persia, Sorcerer's Apprentice) which is a shame. Where are the mean, hostile, aggressive action flicks that he cemented his brand on? C'mon, Jerry...get back to doing what you used to do. (Hint: Give us Bad Boys 3 with Bay back in the director's chair).
From Netflix is the indie Lovely and Amazing. I just sent back The Messenger, which was extremely powerful. I'll have a write-up soon on that one.
My wife and I just closed on our 1st house yesterday, so my guess is that next few months are going to be very, very hectic.
