Even though much of the film world will be focused on the 2011 SXSW Film Festival (which opens Friday night with the premiere of Source Code), there’s still some new releases at the box office to keep those of you not in Austin, Texas busy for the next couple of days. Let’s take a look …
Battle Los Angeles, Red Riding Hood, Mars Needs Moms
FYI! don't you mean 3/11-3-13??? Well! I was fortunate to win "sneak peek" previews for this action Sci-Fi roller coaster ride. Yeah, some will think it formula others will wish for more depth and story, I say it is what it is, a hIgh-energy SFX drag-out knock down. The "US vs. Them" hints of Independence day but updated for the new Armed forces. If anything it felt like a big recruitment film for the USMC, Semper Fi! if your into that stuff, but Aaron is great at what he does and This kind of movie I don't go to see depth and character development, just some pure clean Wup'*** by the underdog ****!! and it delivered. Like I said it is what it is, and BTW it's nice not to see Michelle Rodriguez character make it to the end of a movie
My bad! I mean "see her make it through a movie" Sorry I live Hawaii and we just had a Tsunami..**** makes you tired. Peace out!!!
I only hope that, "Battle: LA" is very good, but with a PG rating how good can it get? I dunno. I will have to see it. I am also interested in "Red Riding Hood", and "Mars Needs Moms". "Durango" I can wait on Nutfl...er Netflix.
I believe Battle: LA is PG-13
lol that movie would be a box office disaster if it were to be PG ... Puppets would have replaced the CGI :D
***Let me preface this by saying if you don't like hearing other people's opinions about movies before you watch them, then don't read this*** I caught an advanced screening of Battle: Los Angeles, and I was pretty disappointed. I really wanted to like it. Aaron Eckhart is a great actor, and he gives a serviceable performance here, but for the most part I was bored. There was hardly any character development. So, yeah, it was cool watching marines fight aliens, but I didn't care if any of them (the humans) died. I know action movies aren't the most character-heavy films, but the audience should still feel invested in the characters. Maybe more charismatic actors could have made the movie better.
Def Battle. but you have to think of all the twitards that will watch Red "Riding Hood, just because of the twilight director. It will likely be a close 2nd. and MNM doesn't even look good as a kids movie. My 6 year old nephew said it looked boring.
def battle la for the win. though it is a typical alien invasion film and it is a pretty darn close fit to independence day the special effects were paid for as opposed to skylines. also i dont know if mars has what it takes to beat rango. in any event there's too much kid content right now for me to put money on mars taking 2nd. i take rango for 2 red for 3 mars for 4 and adjustment for 5
It'll definitely be Battle L.A. I mean when you talk about alien movies it's pretty much a given. I predict it going something like this:
2=Mars Needs Moms
3=Red Riding Hood
Man i can't wait to see Battle!
I don't know... I would like "Red Riding Hood" to do well. I heard that skyline was a disappointment and that "Battle: LA" was going to be much similar. I will go see "Red Riding Hood" when I hear it is decent quality.
Trust me. You don't want to see Red Riding Hood. It's pretty bad.
Kinda hard one, I think. Mars got 3D and IMAX3D tickets ... but Battle LA will sell more in number of tickets, I believe ... and seriously WTF RED RIDING HOOD A MOVIE ABOUT THAT
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
