Trailer Park: “Remember Me,” “Green Zone,” “She’s Out Of My League,” “Our Family Wedding”

Sure, the Oscars are over and the best movies of 2009 have been awarded little gold men, but it’s 2010 now and we get a whole new score sheet of movies to love and hate. And so you don’t lose next year’s Oscar bets, you’d better start watching them now. I’m not necessarily saying any of this week’s movies are Oscar-worthy, but they’ll at least be entertaining … hopefully. This week, something tragic happens in “Remember Me,” something tragic already happened in “Green Zone,” unmatched people date in “She’s Out of My League,” and racism still exists in “Our Family Wedding.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Alice In Wonderland,” “Brooklyn’s Finest,” “The Yellow Handkerchief,” “The Good Guy”

What better weekend to go to the movies is there than Oscar weekend, when magical films, which have allowed us to briefly escape our lives, are honored for their role in our sanity and entertainment? This week, you can follow Alice down the rabbit’s hole with “Alice in Wonderland,” feel like a badass with “Brooklyn’s Finest,” and, if you’re fortunate enough to live in a city that gets limited releases, you can catch “Twilight” darling Kristen Stewart in “The Yellow Kandkerchief” or “Gilmore Girl” Alexis Bledel in “The Good Guy.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Crazies,” “Cop Out,” “A Prophet”

I’m starting to notice that certain types of movies come out at certain times of the year. Family and blockbuster movies all wedge their way into that blissful time between Thanksgiving and Christmas, sappy relationship movies get Valentine’s Day, and all the scary/political/cop/insanity movies come around that depressing end-of-winter-still-no-hope-for-spring time. As if we have nothing better to do than go slowly insane. This week’s releases include “The Crazies,” “Cop Out,” and “A Prophet.” I know “Cop Out” isn’t going to be depressing per se, but every time Kevin Smith directs a movie he didn’t also write, a fairy loses her wings and plummets to her death. And that’s depressing. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Shutter Island,” “The Ghost Writer,” “Red Riding Trilogy”

We’re getting into those dark, drudging days of winter when all you want to do is hole up with a blanket with a warm drink and wait for spring. If humans were really as smart as we’re supposed to be, we would have initiated mandatory winter hibernation like the bears. But since we’re stuck trudging through snow and dealing with our sallow skin tone, we might as well take the opportunity to hibernate in a movie theater for a few hours a week, at least. This week brings a trio of dark thrillers with “Shutter Island,” “The Ghost Writer,” and “Red Riding Trilogy.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Wolfman,” “Valentine’s Day,” “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Lightning Thief”

Chances are you already have plans for Valentine’s Day weekend, but if you don’t, I have an awesome plan for you: Go to the movies and sit between two groups of people so that either side would assume that you’re with the other party. Pretend to offer your popcorn and nod your head as if you’re conversing with said group. Enjoy the film. Upon exiting, close-walk behind a couple until you get to an appropriate parting arena. Wave frantically and say, “Bye guys,” while looking at a spot just beyond them on the horizon. Get into your own car. Go home. Brilliant, huh? This week’s cinema escapes include sexy canines in “The Wolfman,” alternatively whiny and happy attractive people in “Valentine’s Day,” and underage Greek demi-gods in “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: Lightning Thief.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Dear John,” “From Paris, With Love,” “Frozen”

It’s the first weekend of February, and Punxsutawney Phil totally saw his shadow again, which means we’ve got another six weeks of winter on our hands. Unless, like the National Climatic Data Center, you believe Groundhog Day is hogwash. (The party poopers say Phil’s accuracy is 39 percent). Either way, it’s cold as hell out there and it might be best to hibernate for the remainder of the season. My recipe for hibernation includes lots of soup, 24/7 robe time, and movies. This week’s releases include tearjerker chick-flick “Dear John,” adventure blowing-stuff-up movie “From Paris With Love,” and an almost-funny horror flick, “Frozen.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Edge of Darkness,” “When In Rome,” “Saint John Of Las Vegas”

TGIF! It’s what you’ve been toiling all week for—the weekend! And you can do whatever you want. Drive to Mexico, learn French, floss for once—the world is your oyster. And of course, there is always the movies. If you had a rough week and need to get out some aggression, you might want to watch Mel Gibson beat up some shady folks in “Edge of Darkness.” If you’re totally sick of all the dead-beat dudes in your life, pretend that you believe in magic and catch Kristen Bell in “When in Rome.” And if you’re just in a mood to run away to Vegas, catch Steve Buscemi in “Saint John of Las Vegas.” Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Extraordinary Measures,” “Legion,” “Tooth Fairy,” “Creation,” “The Girl On The Train”

I don’t know about you guys, but it’s been raining for a week straight in California and I’ve barely left the house. And since bed sores aren’t a great look on a girl, I think it’s about time to venture somewhere dry … preferably somewhere that serves something delicious like popcorn and slurpies, for example. There are some really random movies coming out this week. For some reason the only comedy is “Tooth Fairy,” but if you’re in the mood for something heavy, you’re in luck! Apparently every week will bring us a new apocalyptic movie; this week it’s “Legion,” and on the opposite plane is “Creation,” the story of Darwin’s development of the theory of evolution. If you’re into parents fighting for their kids’ lives, “Extraordinary Measures” should do it. If you’re into parents railing on their kids, “The Girl on the Train” should work. Then there’s the cowboy documentary, “Sweetgrass,” which might be the best choice if the modern world is getting you down. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “The Book of Eli,” “The Last Station,” “Spy Next Door,” “Wonderful World,” “Fish Tank”

It’s a long weekend for some of us, which means you’ve got a whole ‘nother evening to spend. Hooray! And because I know you’re indecisive, like me, I’m just going to tell you what you’re gonna do. You’re going to take your best friend/lover/dog to Red Lobster for cheddar biscuits and Lobsteritas. She/he/it will have the Cajun Shrimp Linguine, and you’ll be having the Surf & Turf. Afterward, you’ll go to the movie theater because there is already a slew of amazing movies out, and now there are five more options — “The Book of Eli,” “The Last Station,” “The Spy Next Door,” “Wonderful Life,” and “Fish Tank.” You will end the night with a goodnight kiss, regardless of who your date was. Fin. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “Leap Year,” “Youth In Revolt,” And “Daybreakers”

It’s eight days into the new year and since one of your resolutions was to get out more (I know, I’m psychic), why not treat yourself to a movie night? Maybe popcorn would get in the way of that resolution to cut down on carbs, but what’s a movie without 400-1,200 calories of comfort? This week, get a tour of European countryside with “Leap Year,” see if Michael Cera is capable of playing someone besides himself with “Youth in Revolt,” or catch a glimpse of our vampire-ruled future with “Daybreakers.” Keep reading »
