6 new releases to discuss this week and somehow I have not seen any of them, it always amazes me how many weeks I do this and how many movies I see and there is still weeks like this one.
First up we have
The Perks of Being a Wallflower
It seems most people love this film and I must say that I have been wanting to see it. Seems like a well put together coming of age story covering the high and lows of growing up. Based on a best selling Stephen Chobsky novel this DVD is on my list.
next up we have
The Man with the Iron Fists
Not to be mistaken with The Man in the Iron Mask this is a film about Warriors, Assassins and it seems like there are a lot of well orchestrated fight scenes. I remember seeing the preview for this and wishing Russel Crowe was not in it, I also saw them toting Tarantino as a producer trying to get the Kill Bill fans in to see it. I thought it looked pretty cool but there is something that smells a little fishy about this one, meaning I am willing to bet it falls a little flat.
then we have
This documentary is getting rave reviews and covers one of the prevalent topics in the school system, bullying. Bully follows 5 kids and families over the course of a school year, some of these families have lost children to suicide so I imagine this one will be pretty heavy. I am eager to watch this.
Silent Hill Revelations
and then we have
Based on the writings of journalist and poet Mark O’Brien this film is about a 38-year-old virgin with an iron lung trying to lose his virginity. Now I know nothing about Mark O’ Brien but this is being touted as a great film. Stars, where have you been, Helen Hunt and also stars William H. Macy and up and comer Moon Bloodgood, it may be worth watching just for Bloodgood.
and finally we have
Robot & Frank
Starring Susan Sarandon, Liv Tyler, and Frank Langella this film follows an elderly man who bought a Robot to care for him in his old age instead of going to the nursing home. This to me seems to be the most original film of the week and I am looking forward to catching this one soon.
That’s it that’s all
