Admit One 10/23

By Zach

Four new movies coming out this weekend but nothing really too spectacular, we’re in the limbo like area between the summer blockbusters and the winter “prestige” films.


Astro Boy

Starring: Freddie Highmore, Nicolas Cage, Kristen Bell, Bill Nighy

Directed by: David Bowers

Plot: Brilliant scientist Dr. Tenma creates a super advanced boy robot named Astro to help humanity and eventually defend their hometown of Metro City against evil.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 45%

Critic Consensus: “While it isn’t terribly original, and it seems to have a political agenda that may rankle some viewers, Astro Boy boasts enough visual thrills to please its target demographic.”



Starring: Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, Ewan McGregor, Christopher Eccleston

Directed by: Mira Nair

Plot: The story of America’s most famous female pilot, Amelia Earhart

RT Freshness: 16%

Critic Consensus: “Amelia takes the compelling raw materials of its subject’s life and does little with them, conventionally ticking off Earhart’s accomplishments without exploring the soul of the woman.”


Cirque de Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant

Starring: John C. Reilly, Chris Massoglia, Ken Watanabe, Salma Hayek

Directed by: Paul Weitz

Plot: A teen joins up with a vampire and a traveling circus of freaks.

RT Freshness: 35%

Critic Consensus: “This overstuffed, scattershot vampire flick suffers from poor characterization and an unwieldy mix of scares and chuckles.”


Saw VI

Starring: Costas Mandylor, Mark Rolston, Betsy Russell, Tobin Bell

Directed by: Kevin Greutert

Plot: A new group of victims is terrorized by the latest incarnation of the Jigsaw killer.

RT Freshness: 22%

Critic Consensus: N/A
