This week is good only if you’re a teenage girl. Being that we are not we could give a shit about the “big” release this week, Twilight. Let’s see what the critics thought and what else is out.
Starring: John Travolta, Miley Cyrus
Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 86%
Critic Consensus: “Bolt is a pleasant animated comedy that overcomes the story’s familiarity with strong visuals and likable characters.”
Starring: Kristin Stewart, Robert Pattison
RT Freshness: 47%
Critic Consensus: “Having lost much of its bite transitioning to the big screen, Twilight will please its devoted fans, but do little for the uninitiated.”
Starring: Michael Rapaport, Paul Blackthorne
RT Freshness: 60%
Onion AV Club: “Its ambitions are limited — though at 81 minutes, wisely proportioned — but its heart is in the right place.”
Zach: The first real look at J.J. Abrams Star Trek reboot. It looks pretty promising, the special effects and space battles look great and Zachary Quinto looks like he’s gonna be great as Spock. Chris Pine, however, I’m not too sure about as Kirk. This could be one of the biggest events of 2009, and that’s coming from a non Trek fan.
Brian: I don’t consider myself a “trekker”, “trekkie”, or any kind of Star Trek fanatic. I’ve seen a few of the movies and they were decent. I was just never fully into the aesthetic and aura of it all. J.J. Abrams has made some damn good movies, and even though he’s getting criticized for using younger, “hotter” actors, it’s the right move. Trailer shows a lot of action, and that tied with Abrams’ past movie endeavors make me curious. I will most likely see this some point in theaters.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
