Opening This Week

  • Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son- Let's get this out of the way...Martin Lawrence hopes to revive his career with what must be the eighth, twelfth (actually third) incarnation of the his most financially viable character.  Good for him, wish him all the luck.
  • I Am Number Four- An actiony\thriller-ish\teen angst\love story thing.  In truth, I have absolutely no clue what this one's really about, from it's awkward out-of-the-mouth title and odd marketing.  Stars hot new Brit thing Alex Pettyfer and Glee-gal Dianna Agron.  Directed by D.J. Caruso, of Eagle Eye and Disturbia fame.
  • Unknown- Also known as Taken 2; also know as Liam Neeson cashes a paycheck.  Neeson a badass married to Mad Men's January Jones whose identity gets stripped somehow and he goes about to make right.  Perhaps shoddy wide release offerings this third weekend of February, but like it or not, this one's the best reviewed pick of the week.  Think of it as a very low-rent Hitchcock flick, and hope that Neeson gets his groove back sooooooon.

  • Even the Rain- The Spanish submission for the 2010 foreign language category (it was shortlisted, however wasn't nominated), which comments of Spanish imperialism separating the past and present through the prism of a movie shoot.  Stars Gael Garcia Bernal.  I, personally, felt it was overly earnest and more than a bit boring, however it has an awesome one-sheet.
