The Weekend's New Movie Offerings Are Here

December 17, 2010


TRON: Legacy
Director: Joseph Kosinski
Starring: Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde
Good if you want to see: the darker, edgier version of neon guys playing frisbee and motorcycles inside a video game.

Yogi Bear
Director: Eric Brevig
Starring: Dan Aykroyd Voice, Justin Timberlake Voice, Tom Cavanagh, Anna Faris
Good if you want to see: Yogi Bear steal picnic baskets; Yogi Bear shoot a grub out his nose and towards a delighted audience; the concept of Yogi Bear stretched as far as his pelt will allow, across both time and three-dimensional space.

How Do You Know (not a question)
Director: James L. Brooks
Starring: Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Jack Nicholson
Good if you want to see: our only $120 million mildly-amusing love triangle.

Rabbit Hole
Director: John Cameron Mitchell
Starring: Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart
Good if you want to see: a once-content couple struggling, each in their own way, to deal with the loss of their young son. It's sort of a nice Christmas movie, if you imagine it as a what-if scenario had Home Alone ended very differently.

Casino Jack
Director: George Hickenlooper
Starring: Kevin Spacey, Barry Pepper, Jon Lovitz
Good if you want to see: George Hickenlooper's final film, with Spacey in his latest smarmy guy role: as Worst (Best?) Lobbyist Jack Abramoff.
