Reviews to come, week of Jan. 22, 2010

Posted in Uncategorized on January 20, 2010 by C.F. Varnau

Here are upcoming reviews for this week:

Friday: “Legion,” the latest post-apocalyptic film about a war between Heaven and, well, us. Looks pretty bad, but should at least have some good effects.

Saturday: “The Tooth Fairy,” starring Dwayne Johnson as a hockey player who through some course of events becomes a tooth fairy. I think this one looks decent, but Johnson needs to do something more grown-up again.

Sunday: “Extraordinary Measures,” with Brendan Fraser and Harrison Ford. The pairing of Fraser and Ford feels to me like it would be a buddy flick, but it’s not. This one is serious. At this time of year, movies like this tend to be average, but I have my hopes.

Race to Witch Mountain
THE RUNDOWN (no pun intended): Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson once again takes on a role in a Disney film, but this one looks a lot better than “The Game Plan” or even your average kids movie. Could this be the next “Spy Kids?” This one could get the number two slot, but it’d be an achievement if it beat “Watchmen.”

Miss March
THE RUNDOWN: Playboy-inspired humor could bring in some raunchy fun with an elevated R-rating and the promise of some nudity. Probably not a good date movie, but perfect for a night out with the guys.

Last House on the Left
THE RUNDOWN: Despite an R-rating, don’t expect too much gore from this horror-thriller. This remake of a Wes Craven film seems toned-down, but maybe that’s a good thing. After all, I think we’re all sick of “Hostel.” Still, can the film still have that shock and scare value?
