Opening This Weekend, in the Movie Theatres

August 14, 2009


So many movie choices this weekend, you'll feel even more miserable when you just stay inside eating Stouffer's French bread pizzas:

Director: Todd Graff
Starring: Alyson Michalka, Vanessa Hudgens, Gaelan Connell
Good if you want to see: that this wasn't just a bizarre nightmare you had when you passed out on your couch with the Disney Channel on--it's real!

The Time Traveler's Wife
Director: Robert Schwentke
Starring: Eric Bana, Rachel McAdams, Ron Livingston
Good if you want to see: time travel; monogamy; borderline pedophilia?

District 9
Director: Neill Blomkamp
Starring: Sharlto Copley, David James, Jason Cope, aliens!
Good if you want to see: apartheid with an alien twist; well-reviewed, grounded sci-fi; what this ninth district is all about.

Director: Hayao Miyazaki
Starring: A bunch of celebrity voices replacing the Japanese voices, making it less offensive to our stupid American ears.
Good if you want to see: I think there's like a fish who becomes a girl, and the ocean turns into giant fish? I don't know. I'm sure it's pretty good if you take a child who won't freak out at seeing a fish/girl hybrid.

Director:David Mackenzie
Starring: Ashton Kutcher, Anne Heche
Good if you want to see: an hour-and-a-half Nikon CoolPix commercial; who's been sending all your favorite Twitters.

The Goods
Director: Neal Brennan
Starring: Jeremy Piven, Ving Rhames, David Koechner, Ed Helms
Good if you want to see: Jeremy Piven being Jeremy Piven--now in a car sales environment!

Director: Paul Solet
Starring: Jordan Ladd, Samantha Ferris, Gabrielle Rose, a gross babything
Good if you want to see: a gross babything; flies.
