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?

Trailer Park: “The Last Song,” “Clash Of The Titans,” “Vincere,” “Bluebeard,” “Thorn In The Heart”

It’s Easter and Passover weekend, so if you’re religious, you’re probably hoarding Easter eggs or subsisting on matzo. I like to pretend that I am both Jewish and Christian, so my diet involves melted Cadbury eggs over almond macaroons. I’m for sure going to hell. But since there’s still time for us to be forgiven for our many sins, why not take a break this weekend to go see a movie? There’s not really a consistent theme with this week’s movies. If you’re feeling high school hormonal, go see “The Last Song”; if you’re cursing your God, look for “Clash of the Titans”; if you just got scorned by a man, “Vincere” and “Bluebeard” would both work in opposite ways; and if you’re sick of your own family, spy on a different one with “The Thorn in the Heart.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Hot Tub Time Machine,” “Chloe,” “How To Train Your Dragon,” “The Exploding Girl”

You have no excuse to not go to the movies this weekend. Did you know that on average, Americans are only seeing five movies a year?!?! How do you even pick five movies a year—I want to see at least five movies a month and am heartbroken when I have to save one to watch on DVD. This week, there are five excellent movies out and if you don’t go and see one, I’m just going to give up on you. Not really though. “Hot Tub Time Machine” looks much less awful now that I’ve seen the second trailer, “Chloe” is blushingly sexy, “How to Train Your Dragon” is a sweet tale of vikings and their dragons, “The Exploding Girl” is a boy meets girl but girl wants to be friends kind of flick, and “City Island” makes me never want to have a family because the concentrated pool of lies is too viscous to permeate.

Trailer Park: “The Bounty Hunter,” “Greenberg,” “The Runaways”

This Sunday is the first day of spring and, thanks to daylight savings, there are at least two more hours in your day. And what are you going to do with all that extra time? Go see a movie! Yay! This week actually offers a decent selection that should get you motivated for springtime … especially if your springtime involves running from the law (“The Bounty Hunter”), mooching off of your relatives instead of getting a job (“Greenberg”), or starting an all-girl rock band (“The Runaways”). And really, it should include all of those things. Keep reading »
