Admit One 10/2

Well, it’s the first weekend in October and it’s not a very good weekend for movies.  The only bright spot is Ed Harris’ Appaloosa is in wide release.  The rest of the movies are, well, see for yourself.

Appaloosa

Critic Consensus: “A traditional genre western, Appaloosa sets itself apart with smart psychology, an intriguing love triangle, and good chemistry between the leads.”

Flash of Genius

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Starring: Michael Cera, Kat Dennings

Freshness: 66%

Critic Consensus: “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist combines a pair of charming leads, the classic New York backdrop, and a sweet soundtrack.”  Yeah, well I get a very “Hipster, Indie” vibe that makes me think of Juno and shudder, next.

Blindness

Starring: Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo

Freshness: 38%

Critical Consensus: “This allegorical disaster film about society’s reaction to mass blindness is mottled and self-satisfied; provocative but not as interesting as its premise implies.”

Religulous

Starring: Bill Maher

Freshness: 65%

Critic Consensus: “Religulous is funny and offensive in equal measure, and aims less to change hearts and minds than to inspire conversation.”

That’s it this week,  If you’re going to see anything I would say go see Appaloosa because it looks bad-ass.  And, if you go see Beverly Hills Chihuahua please do us a favor and ram your head into the wall a bunch of times because you’re an idiot.
