New Movie Friday
The first portion of the epic finale is almost sure to be the highest grossing film of the year. Judging by the line I stood in last night, it might be the highest grossing film by the end of the week. I believe I've been quite open about my unabashed love for this series, both the books and the movies, so it should come as no shock that I've already basked in the glory of the penultimate film of the franchise. I'll post a full review in a few days because I want some time for it to sink in. But wow, this is probably the best of the bunch.
"The Next Three Days" - Russell Crowe, Elizabeth Banks, Liam Neeson
A loving husband and father (Crowe) executes a daring plan to break his innocent wife (Banks) out of prison. Based upon a French film of the same idea, this is the only mainstream film to dare challenge the behemoth that is "HP7" and I can't imagine very many people will even pay attention given the competition it'll have at the box office. That's too bad, too, as it seems to be getting pretty good reviews. Will probably make an appearance on my Netflix queue at some point.
