My DVD/Blu-Ray Pick
Machete – Robert Rodriguez has proven he doesn’t conform to one genre. He has his western styled Mariachi trilogy starring Antonio Banderas, the graphic novel adaptation Sin City, his Spy Kids trilogy and now a shout out to the cheesy exploitation flicks of the 70s. Just violence, nudity, and silliness which branched off his fake Grindhouse trailer. Danny Trejo stars as a vigilante that just kills everyone. I really wanted to see this in theaters but never had the chance. I look forward to catching it soon. I hear its a little preachy on the subject of illegal immigration but I’m curious regardless.
My Theater Pick
Season of the Witch – now don’t get all pissy because I picked a terrible movie like this. Its actually the only damn thing that comes out this weekend so I really had no choice. Ok, I guess I could have made no choice so it doesn’t look like I’m actually recommending this dogshit. Nicolas Cage in another role that requires a terrible wig. This time him and Ron Perlman transport a witch, or something, who cares. Sometimes I think Cage might be certifiably insane. And it also makes me think of this CollegeHumor video.
Box Office Results
Since no new wide releases came out, Little Fockers remained at the top spot with another $26 million. And True Grit was still hot on its tail. The rest of the list didn’t change much but everyone got a nice little money boost due to the popular movie weekend of New Years.
Also coming out in stores this week is Dinner For Schmucks, Catfish, The Last Exorcism, Big Love Season 4 and The Ricky Gervais Show Season 1.
