Admit One 8/21

We’re pretty much wrapping up the summer blockbuster season this week with Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds.  A couple of kids/tween movies are also coming out to counter balance all the Nazi scalping.


Inglourious Basterds

Starring: Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger, BJ Novak, Christophe Waltz

Directed by: Quentin Tarantino

Plot: A special team of Jewish American soldiers are dropped behind enemy lines in Paris to covertly kill as many Nazis as possible, ultimately attempting to kill Hitler.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 89%

Critic Consensus: “A classic Tarantino genre-blending thrill ride, Inglourious Basterds is violent, unrestrained, and thoroughly entertaining.”



Starring: Jon Cryer, William H Macy, James Spader, Leslie Mann

Directed by: Robert Rodriguez

Plot: A kid named Toe Thompson discovers a magical rainbow colored rock that grants anyone holding it wishes.

RT Freshness: 35%

Critic Consensus: “Shorts has imagination and energy, but most viewers beyond elementary school will likely tire of the kiddie humor and sensory overload.”


Post Grad

Starring: Alexis Bledel, Zach Gilford, Rodrigo Santoro, Jane Lynch

Directed by: Vicky Jenson

Plot: Recent college grad Ryden Malby is forced to move back in with her parents after a college rival steals her dream job.

RT Freshness: 9%

Critic Consensus: “A lightweight, unambitious comedy, Post Grad features fine actors that can do little with its middling, uninspiring script.”
