CoF Weekend Preview: See The Dark Knight Rises Again or Finally

Friday, July 27th, 2012


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. See you here Monday for a new City Strip.

The WatchRT (14%) – Trailer

If you want to see a great alien invasion movie, check out Attack the Block.  The Watch may be someone’s best effort to Americanize that movie, but I don’t think it’s going to work.  I’m pretty tired of the unscripted back and forth you can already tell will be in this movie thanks to Stiller, Vaughn, and Hill.  Maybe I’m getting old, or maybe I like story.

Step Up RevolutionRT (31%) – Trailer

Dance kids.  Dance like you’ve never danced before!  Then never make one of these stupid movies again.

Also opening: Killer Joe (Limited), Clown: The Movie (or Klovn: The Movie) (Limited), Ruby Sparks (Limited)

Other: Like I said, The Dark Knight Rises is worth checking out, even for a second time.  If you’re stuck at home, Breaking Bad is on Sunday and this season is just chilling so far.

Red Band Trailer for Neighborhood Watch Now Called THE WATCH

Monday, May 7th, 2012


Neighborhood Watch has a new red band trailer and to distance itself from the Trayvon Martin case in Florida, it will now simply be called The Watch.  The movie looks entertaining still, what’s in a title anyways?  The film stars Vaughn, Hill, Stiller and Richard Ayoade.  I suspect from the trailer there was a lot of ad-libbing on this one, nothing wrong with that when it comes to comedy I think.

An outrageous comedy in which four everyday suburban guys (played by Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade) come together to form a neighborhood watch group, but only as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. But when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood — and the world — from total extermination.
