Opening This Weekend

The Departed – Martin Scorcese and a crime drama. Need I say more?

The Queen – Helen Mirren is an early Oscar favorite for her portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in the weeks following the death of Princess Diana.

Employee of the Month – Jessica Simpson and Dane Cook star in this comedy. I don’t want to say more.

I’m going home this weekend, so I’ll probably be watching a lot of movies. Hopefully, I’ll get to see The Departed and The Queen.

Opening This Weekend

The Last King of Scotland (limited release) starring Forest Whitaker and James McAvoy. An early Oscar contender and Whitaker delivers the performance of his career as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin.

Open Season. The first picture from Sony Pictures Animation featuring the voices of Martin Lawrence, Debra Messing, and Ashton Kutcher. Probably like all the other animated movies we’ve been inundated with lately.

The Guardian. Kevin Costner stars as a Coast Guard veteran who must train the cocky rookie, played by Ashton Kutcher. Sounds familiar? Thats because it’s Top Gun. Will I be seeing this? Yes. And if explained why, you would only think that I was perculiar.
