BRAAAIIIINNNNSSS! It's a big weekend at the multiplex yet again, and we ask, "what's getting your entertainment dollar this weekend?" New options include:
  • A 3 hour double feature of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 (one of those sequels that arguably exceeds the original), remastered into 3-D for a limited two-week engagement.
  • The Invention of Lying, a star-studded Ricky Gervais comedy about a world in which only one man has figured out how to lie.
  • Whip It, in which Ellen Page makes sardonic remarks on roller skates under the direction of her co-star, Drew Barrymore, and with a pretty impressive supporting cast--Kristen Wiig, Marcia Gay Harden, Daniel Stern.
  • Joe Schmo creators Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick's Zombieland, with a ragtag group of folks killing zombies in a quest for safety, and the continuing quest to break Emma Stone as a star (and apparently, a very funny and surprising star cameo).
In addition, there's Michael Moore's newest polemic going wide, A Serious Man, the new Coen film, in limited release, and More Than A Game, a doc about LeBron James' high school career, in NY/LA/OH. For me, it's Zombieland and Invention of Lying as top priorities, with Whip It a possibility, particularly next weekend.
