My DVD/Blu-Ray Pick
The American – I am actually recommending a movie this week that I haven’t had a chance to see. When it came out in theaters back in early September it didn’t really make much of a splash. But it got some decent reviews and I am a fan of George Clooney. He plays an assassin who is taking it easy in the Italian countryside, where he falls for a local chick. But then he takes on a new job and has to handle that and the girl while still keeping his cover. It looked pretty interesting so I plan on seeing it eventually.
Box Office Results
Little Fockers looked like garbage but the holiday weekend means lots of movie goers. It tore shit up at the box office bringing in close to $35 million and beating out the Coen Brothers western True Grit starring Jeff Bridges in the classic John Wayne role. Jack Black did not fare so well, coming in with a measly $7.2 million and a 7th place finish.
Also coming out in stores this week is Resident Evil: Afterlife and Twelve.
Nothing usually hits theaters over the New Years weekend but the Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams relationship drama Blue Valentine will be in limited theaters at the end of the year.
