Admit One: On a 3D Ride to Hell! (1/16)

Posted on January 16, 2009 by


Welcome to Friday everybody where we have 5 new movies out in theaters this week.  Daniel Craig is killing Nazis, we learn the true story of Notorious B.I.G. and pick axes are being thrown into our faces by a guy in a gas mask.  Here’s what the buzz is.


Starring: Daniel Craig, Liev Schreiber, Jamie Bell

Directed by: Edward Zwick

Plot: Three Jewish brothers lead a group of refugees through the Eastern European woods fighting off the Nazis and trying to survive the winter.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 54%

Critic Consensus: “Professionally made but artistically uninspired, Ed Zwick’s story of Jews surviving WWII in the Belarus forest lacks the emotional punch of the actual history.”

My Bloody Valentine 3D

Starring: Jensen Ackles, Jaime King, Kerr Smith

Directed by: Patrick Lussier

Plot: On Valentine’s Day in the small town of Harmony a lunatic in a gas mask and armed with a pick axe comes to town and starts on a killing spree.

RT Freshness: 71%

CHUD: “An in-your-face bit of bloody fun that’s guaranteed to thrill those looking for a gory good time.”


Starring: Jamal Woolard, Anthony Mackie, Derek Luke

Directed by: George Tillman

Plot: A biopic detailing the rise of the Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls.

RT Freshness: 54%

Critic Consensus: “A biopic that lacks the luster of its subject, Notorious is generic rise-and-fall fare that still functions as a primer for those less familiar with the work and life of the hip hop icon.”

Hotel for Dogs

Starring: Emma Roberts, Jake T. Austin, Kyla Pratt and somehow Don Cheadle

Directed by: Thor Freudenthal

Plot: A group of friends turn an abandoned hotel into a shelter for dogs.

RT Freshness: 43%

Critic Consensus: “Hotel for Dogs may appeal to children and dog lovers, but it’s ultimately contrived, predictable, and simplistic.”

Paul Blart: Mall Cop

Starring: Kevin James, Jayma Mars, Keir O’Donnell

Directed by: Steve Carr

Plot: Mall cop Paul Blart must try to stop a group of Santa’s elves turned kidnappers who have taken over the mall.

RT Freshness: 27%

Critic Consensus: “Paul Blart: Mall Cop has some laughs, but its plot is flimsy and lacking in any sustained comic momentum.”
