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:
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.
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?
