Admit One 10/8
It’s an off week for movies at the multiplex this weekend as we’re stuck between last week’s big release of The Social Network and next’s week dynamic duo of Jackass 3D and Red.
Starring: Diane Lane, John Malkovich, Dylan Walsh, Dylan Baker
Directed by: Randall Wallace
Plot: Housewife turned horse racing mogul Penny Chenery managed to train arguably the greatest race horse of all time, Secretariat, in the early 70’s.
Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 65%
Critic Consensus: “Rousing, heartwarming, and squarely traditional, Secretariat offers exactly what you’d expect from an inspirational Disney drama — no more, and no less.”
Life as We Know It
Starring: Katherine Heigl, Josh Duhamel, Josh Lucas, Alexis Clagett
Directed by: Greg Berlanti
Plot: A bickering couple are left to raise a baby after the parents are both killed in a car accident.
RT Freshness: 29%
Critic Consensus: “Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel make a charming couple with plenty of chemistry, but that isn’t enough to make up for Life as We Know It’s formulaic plot and poorly written script.”
My Soul to Take

I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
