Trailer Park: “The A-Team,” “The Karate Kid,” “Winter’s Bone,” “Joan Rivers: A Piece Of Work”

If you have men (or soccer enthusiast women) in your life, chances are you’re going to want to escape from the constant World Cup noise. There’s no better escape from the heat, yelling, and ball-pinging than an air-conditioned movie theater. But for some reason, instead of releasing a bunch of chick flicks to compensate, half of this weekend’s movie releases are also packed full of machismo. Fortunately, Sundance winner “Winter’s Bone” is on limited release and looks pretty fantastic. Plus, there’s a Joan Rivers documentary that I had no idea existed until now but am weirdly glad that it does. “The A-Team” and “The Karate Kid” both look decent if you’re in one of those set-stuff-on-fire and beat-people-up kind of moods. Or are nostalgic for the ’80s. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Get Him To The Greek,” “Splice,” “Killers,” “Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Undead”

It’s barely summer, but it’s already getting to the point where people are sweating the second they step outside. And for me, inside, since I refuse to blight my window with an air conditioning unit. It’s this time of the year that I remember why movie theaters are so great—air conditioning! Thankfully, there are some interesting movies coming out this week, including the hilarious “Get Him to the Greek,” terrifying “Splice,” romantic funny “Killers,” or just plain silly “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead.” Now go get some air!

Trailer Park: “Sex And The City 2,” “Prince of Persia,” “Survival Of The Dead,” “Agora,” “Micmacs”

I know you’ve got a lot on your plate these days, but there are some serious movies coming out this week and you need a vacation from your life! You’ve been hearing about “Sex and the City 2” for months and months now and regardless of my feelings, a good number of women and gay men are making the pilgrimage to their local movie theaters to see it. But there’s also “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time,” the gory “George A. Romero’s Survival of the Dead,” the fight to save Ancient Rome from Christianity in “Agora,” and Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s newest film “Micmacs.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Shrek Forever After,” “Solitary Man,” “Daddy Longlegs”

We’re exactly one month away from the first day of summer and if you, like I, haven’t realized this, we might have a lot of spring cleaning, spring flinging, and summer preparing to do. I guess that means you’re supposed to organize your closet, make out with a dude and paint your toenails? And because you/we have so much on our plate, it’s important to not waste valuable energy on socializing and partying until the wee hours of the morning and this is why you should go see a movie instead. Never thought I’d get to the point, did you? This week, “Shrek Forever After,” “Solitary Man,” and “Daddy Longlegs” are out, but if those aren’t your cup of tea, check out the previous releases!

Trailer Park: “Robin Hood,” “Letters To Juliet,” “Just Wright,” “Women Without Men”

Another weekend. Another two days to sleep in, brunch, party and mourn the upcoming work week. Hooray! I know it seems like the hours fly by much more quickly on your days off, but just in case you want to spend a few in an air-conditioned movie theater, there is a good mix of movies out this week, including “Robin Hood,” “Letters to Juliet,” “Just Wright,” “Women Without Men,” and “Looking for Eric.” Now get back to work! Just kidding. Go take another coffee break—you deserve it. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Iron Man 2,” “Mother And Child,” “Please Give,” “The Good Heart,” “Babies”

There’s no reason to plead with you to see a movie this week because for once, there is a whole lot of awesomeness, coming to a theater near you. If you’re not planning on seeing “Iron Man 2,” you are going to feel super left out at the water cooler on Monday. It’s simply un-American to not see it. You like America, right? Also, drink Coca-Cola. Even if you’re not feeling the iron, there are two mommy-centric movies, “Mother and Child” and “Babies,” which are sure to shake up some ovaries. And then there are two, truly awesome-looking indie flicks, “Please Give” and “The Good Heart.” There really is something for everyone, so go get your movie on. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Furry Vengeance,” “Nightmare On Elm Street,” “Paper Man,” “The Human Centipede”

Sure it’s springtime, love is in the air and the birds are singing. But do you know what else is in the air? Pollen. And the bees are singing too … kinda. You might fall in love frolicking in the park, but you might also fall in love in a dark movie theater, sitting next to a handsome stranger who offers you his popcorn. If you’re going to take that route, this week’s movie releases are going to offer some really interesting post-movie conversation. To scare the crap out of yourself, go see “Nightmare on Elm Street,” or (shudder) “The Human Centipede (First Sequence).” If you’re carting kids or like watching animals be devious, catch “Furry Vengeance.” If you want to see Michael Caine kick some butt, there’s “Harry Brown,” and if you want to feast your eyes on Ryan Reynolds playing Jeff Daniels’ imaginary superhero, watch “Paper Man.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Back-up Plan,” “The Losers,” “Oceans”

Every year, I miss Earth Day. I mean, I do my part to only bring re-usable bags to the grocery store and have a water canteen thingy, but I feel like I should be picking up trash at the beach or composting or something. But if you’re like me and didn’t do anything, you get an extra chance this weekend because if you go see Disney Nature’s “Oceans,” they’ll donate money to save the world’s coral reefs. I don’t know if “The Back-up Plan” is saving babies or donating sperm or anything, but if you hate the earth and love romantic comedies, you might as well see that. And if you hate babies and the earth, but love blowing stuff up, then there’s always “The Losers.” Happy weekend, you guys! Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Kick-Ass,” “Death At A Funeral,” “Exit Through The Gift Shop,” “The Joneses”

I don’t care what plans you had this weekend, you’ve got to cancel them because the movies are calling. They’re saying things like, “Sure movies are expensive but they’re a helluva lot cheaper than the equivalent amount of alcohol it would take to create the same level of distraction from your life.” Movies are smart like that. All I know is that after I finally file my taxes, I’m going to be eating a lot of ramen for a while and it’s much harder to spend money when you’re stuck in the dark for two hours. This weekend, we’ve got kids who become superheroes with “Kick-Ass,” a funeral turned funny with “Death at a Funeral,” a fan who becomes the subject with “Exit Through the Gift Shop,” consumerism at its scariest with “The Joneses,” and two foreign language films guaranteed to be good, “The Secret in Their Eyes” and “No One Knows About Persian Cats.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Date Night,” “When You’re Strange,” “After.Life,” “Breaking Upwards,” “La Mission”

Sure, it’s super pretty outside and you could be hiking, frolicking through meadows of spring flowers, or lying on the beach. But then you’d look like you’re stuck in a commercial for anti-depressants. I don’t recommend depression, but isn’t it nice to just sit in the dark sometimes, letting salty popcorn dissolve on your tongue and giving your brain over to a picture show? And this week, you can catch some love capers with “Date Night,” bond with rockers with “When You’re Strange,” get stressed out about what’s next with “After.Life,” break up the hard way with “Breaking Backwards,” experience San Fran gangster life with “La Mission,” or be glad you’re not a pregnant teenager staying with her dead boyfriend’s family with “The Greatest.” And don’t those sound better than being tan and happy?
