New Movie Friday!
"The A-Team" - Bradley Cooper, Liam Neeson
I would recap the plot for this but really, is there any point? As with any ridiculous action movie, you're either going to see this or you're not and the "plot" doesn't really make any difference. I badly want to HATE what is sure to be a horrible movie but I find myself drifting more and more toward seeing it and seeing it soon. Granted, this is due more to 2010 being the Year of Blerg than anything else, but look, I'm a movie junkie and I'm tweaking pretty bad.
"The Karate Kid" - Jaden Smith, Jackie Chan
An American pre-teen moves with his mother to China, only to be picked on by the thugs who live in his neighborhood. Enter Jackie Chan, who teaches the kid karate, and takes him to some tournaments where he earns the respect of his bullies. Later he turns into a teen wolf and plays basketball. But seriously, I just don't have any interest in this. The original is such a classic to me, don't think I need to see a reboot.
Limited Release -
"Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work" - Joan Rivers
A documentary that delves into the life of (you guessed it) Joan Rivers. Honestly, there is a part of me that thinks this could be a FASCINATING film...and then the other part of me reminds myself that Joan Rivers is one of the most annoying humans in the history of planet Earth and having her on screen for 90 minutes might be enough to drive me to drink Mr. Pibb. Probably out.
