Movie Madness: Out This Weekend

The kids movies are out in full force this week. The first three movies on this list actually hit theatres yesterday...the last one, on Friday, but you need not pay attention to it.

Arthur Christmas
Children's Christmas movies...the only kiddie movies I even think about entertaining, but generally they get a giant pass. This movie would piss me off. Why do all the people in this family have different accents? Unless they explain that they sent Arthur to boarding school in Britain, it would drive me crazy.

Despite the fact that this movie too is aimed at children and that it is in cursed 3D, I think I would watch it. Jude Law (although it looks like he kicks the bucket early...shame, he had a nice comb over), Sascha Baron Cohen and one of my fave child actors Chloe Moretz...a pretty legit cast. I will keep this one in my back pocket in case I am forced to spend time with a child between the ages of 5 and 12.

The Muppets
I don't even know if I am allowed to say this without being struck by lightening...but I don't like the Muppets. I can with all honesty say, I don't think I even liked them as a child. Miss Piggy is a fugly diva bitch and Kermit's voice is annoying...and I don't remember anyone else's name. Jason Segel I love, but I think we all could do without Amy Adams. So pros and cons considered...I will pass on the the puppet reunion.

My Week with Marilyn
I am so distraught by this movie. I have said it before and I will say it 1,000 times, Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe? Such a horrid choice. I know everyone pisses themselves over the mother of Heath Ledger's kid, but come on. It's Marilyn. F'ing. Monroe. I have also heard people say Oscar when talking about this which makes me want to throw a cat out a window. So livid. So unimpressed.

My Pick: Oh lord...I guess we will have to go with Hugo. It wins be default.



  1. hey...
    I love Amy Adams...

  2. the muppets was amazing.

  3. We don't often think of filmmakers as fans, but that's all they really are. They're the cinephiles who took the torch from a previous generation. Whether actor or director, cast or crew, all filmmakers started somewhere as movie aficionados. Even the great Martin Scorsese has a love of film that predates his career as a director. In his latest work Hugo, Marty takes the time to show moviegoers just how big a fan he is of movies. For more of my thoughts on Hugo, check out my review on Sobriety Test Movie Reviews at
