CoF Weekend Preview: Wait, THE DICTATOR Isn’t Based on a Book or Board Game?


Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview, here is a look at what’s opening this weekend and don’t forget to check out the City of Films SUMMER MOVIE GUIDE so you can plan your summer movie experience a bit better. See you here Monday for a new City Strip.

THE DICTATORRT (63%) – Trailer

As I mentioned before, the actors with scripts instead of the style of Borat or Bruno might hurt its chances of being face hurting funny, but still probably worth the time and money.  You have to admire his dedication to his projects don’t you?  Look at that fake beard, awesome.

BATTLESHIPRT (35%) – Trailer

They found a way.  It sinks!


It’s like Valentine’s Day and New Years Eve, but with crazy pregnant women and man-child dads.  So you just know it’s going to be great.  *flips over table and leaves


The Ricky Gervais Show (HBO, Friday) – A day in the life of Karl Pilkington is depicted this week; in the podcast he talked about how his girlfriend was heavy handed around the house and called her The Hulk.  Should be good.

Family Guy – Viewer Mail #2 and another episode.  We miss you already American Dad.

The Simpsons – Lisa Goes Gaga with special guest Lady Gaga.  This sounds about two years late, time to go to South Park animation guys.

Game of Thrones – If this show doesn’t have the good guys get the upper hand soon I might cry.
