What Movie Should I Watch This Weekend?

Finally, The Good Stuff

After weeks of studios dropping bombs left and right on us, it appears that we are finally starting to get the good stuff. It looks like starting this week we are getting some big budget releases that we actually won’t be embarrassed to buy admission to. This week we have a sci-fi war film that looks amazing, a new take on an old fairy tale that has a decent cast, and two films opening in limited release. Let’s get to it.

Aliens, Fairy Tales, Mobsters and Death

Starting us out this week is the much anticipated Battle: Los Angeles. How long has it been since there was a real sci-fi movie released featuring an all-out attack against the Earth? Bonus: this isn’t some artsy, “We made this in our backyard for $8,000 on a Betamax,” school project either. This is an honest to goodness big budget star-studded Hollywood alien movie. I realize I am only setting myself up for disappointment, but the trailer makes this look so good. Next we have Red Riding Hood, starring Amanda Seyfried as Valerie, a young girl with a mysterious connection to the monster terrorizing her village. When a famed werewolf hunter (Gary Oldman) comes to rid her village of the beast, he uses the young girl as bait. Call me crazy, but this actually looks decent. Kill the Irishman has one of the best casts I have seen all year, especially considering this will probably hit a handful of theaters before landing on DVD. Featuring an ensemble that includes Christopher Walken, Val Kilmer, Vincent D’Onofrio, and Ray Stevenson, this tells the story of Irish mobster Danny Greene (Stevenson) and his rise to power in Cleveland. Finally we have Black Death. A knight (Sean Bean) and a monk (Eddie Redmayne) are given the task of investigating a rumored village where the Black Plague can not breach the walls, word has it due to a necromancer’s magic. Sounds more than a little like Season of the Witch to me.
