Posted on May 14, 2010 by

Robin Hood is the big movie this weekend but there’s a couple of other movie coming out that are hoping the capitalize on some counter programming.

Robin Hood

Starring: Russell Crowe, Mark Strong, Max Von Sydow, Cate Blanchett

Directed by: Ridley Scott

Plot: Robin Hood defies King John of England and leads his band of outlaws against the evil Sheriff of Nottingham.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 46%

Critic Consensus: “Ridley Scott’s revisionist take on this oft-told tale offers some fine acting and a few gripping action sequences, but it’s missing the thrill of adventure that made Robin Hood a legend in the first place.”

Letters to Juliet

Starring: Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave, Christopher Egan, Gael Garcia Bernal

Directed by: Gary Winick

Plot: While visiting Verona, a group of volunteers decides to answer letters written to Shakespeare’s Juliet seeking love advice.

RT Freshness: 41%

Critic Consensus: “Letters to Juliet has a refreshingly earnest romantic charm, but it suffers from limp dialogue and an utter lack of surprises.”

Just Wright

Starring: Queen Latifah, Common, Paula Patton, Phylicia Rashad

Directed by: Sanaa Hamri

Plot: A physical therapist falls for the NBA All Star she is helping recover from an injury.

RT Freshness: 46%

Critic Consensus: “Well-intentioned but formulaic, Just Wright has winning leads but can’t overcome its preponderance of cliches.”
