Some Movies Coming Out This Weekend

August 20, 2009


This weekend, figure out why everyone gets so excited about two hours of synchronized picture and sound by seeing one of these "movies" they're always talking about:

Inglourious Basterds
Director: Quentin Tarantino--HEARD OF HIM?
Starring: Brad Pitt, Eli Roth, Diane Kruger, Ryan from The Office, Mike Myers, strangely enough.
Good if you want to see: extreme violence--but against Nazis, so it's fine; Brad Pitt do an accent; stylized, overly-clever yet usually enjoyable dialogue; mostly killin' Nazis, though.

Post Grad
Director: Vicky Jenson
Starring: The younger Gilmore Girl, Michael Keaton, Carol Burnett
Good if you want to see: a recent college graduate moving back in with her zany family; Sitcom Premise: The Movie.

Director: Robert Rodriguez
Starring: Jon Cryer, William H. Macy, a bunch of kids
Good if you want to see: a bunch of kids making fantastical wishes thanks to a magical rainbow rock; some ideas for what to wish for in case you ever find a magical rainbow rock for real (personally, I already have a list started).

X Games 3D: The Movie (limited)
Director: Steve Lawrence
Starring: All these awesome, extreme dudes
Good if you want to see: a guy doing this sweet jump with his BMX and he's comin' like right out of the screen and it's like shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittttt!

Art & Copy (limited)
Director: Doug Pray
Starring: artists and copywriters
Good if you want to see: the stories behind some of our most memorable ad campaigns and the people behind them, you fucking advertising nerd.

My One and Only (limited)
Director: Richard Loncraine
Starring: Renée Zellweger, Logan Lerman, Mark Rendall, Kevin Bacon
Good if you want to see: a comedy about the young life of the eternally tanned George Hamilton? Who knew that was a movie?
