Admit One 1/8

Posted on January 8, 2010 by

The first week of new movies in theaters for 2010 and their faring pretty well with critics, for the most part.


Starring: Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill

Directed by: Christopher Gordon

Plot: In the year 2017, most of the human population has been turned into vampires and those that remain are either farmed for blood or join the resistance.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 64%

Critic Consensus: “Though it arrives during an unfortunate glut of vampire movies, Daybreakers offers enough dark sci-fi thrills — and enough of a unique twist on the genre — to satisfy filmgoers.”

Youth in Revolt

Starring: Michael Cera, Portia Doubleday, Jean Smart, Mary Kay Place

Directed by: Miguel Arteta

Plot: To impress the girl of his dreams, Nick develops an alternate personality named Francoise, but gets more than he bargained for when Francoise starts getting out of control.

RT Freshness: 72%

Critic Consensus: “It may not entirely do its source material justice, but Miguel Arteta’s Youth in Revolt is a fun, funny comic romp that lets Michael Cera stretch a little and introduces filmgoers to a major find in Portia Doubleday.”

Leap Year

Starring: Amy Adams, Matthew Goode, Adam Scott

Directed by: Anand Tucker

Plot: Following an old Irish tradition, Anna heads to Ireland to propose to her boyfriend but ends up stranded on the other side of the country and enlists the help of local rogue Declan to help her arrive in time.

RT Freshness: 14%

Critic Consensus: “Amy Adams is as appealing as ever, but her charms aren’t enough to keep Leap Year from succumbing to an overabundance of clich├ęs and an unfunny script.”
