This Week in Cinema: July 13th

FINALLY!!! Finally a week where I want to go to the theatre. So here’s a week of sweet:

Horrible Bosses

Directed by: Seth Gordon

Written by: Michael Markowitz & John Francis Daley

Starring: Jason Bateman, Jason Sudekis, Charlie Day, Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, Jennifer Aniston & Jamie Foxx

Synopsis: Three friends conspire to murder their awful bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness.

My Thought: It looks funny. I’ve been reading a few mixed reviews though and I’m not sure whether I should be banking it on how much I love Charlie Day. I mean I’m also looking forward to Colin Farrell as what seems like a truly horrible boss, but the truth of the matter is that I feel that this may turn out to be the Hall Pass of the summer.

Might be worth a Saturday afternoon, but it’ll all be dependent on my mood on the day and such.

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part II

Directed by: David Yates

Written by: Steve Kloves & J.K. Rowling

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson & Rupert Grint

Synopsis: The final chapter begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord’s three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. But as the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered, and Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again.

My Thoughts? Why am I thinking? This is a must see film. While I wanted to get to see the movie in 3D I doubt that’s going to happen. I’ve invested a decade of fandom into this franchise, finally I’m going to get the proverbial “money shot” with the final battle between Voldermort and Harry. I can’t wait to hear all the “the books are better” bitchings after the final movie is out. I haven’t read the books, but I feel like this will be the final straw for a lot of the die hard bookworms out there.

What’re you seeing this week?

    Excited about the Harry Potter premiere tomorrow night. Winnie the Pooh also comes out this weekend, but I think I’ll save it for the DVD.

    I’m not sure whether I’m willing to pay full price for WINNIE THE POOH right now, but I dunno.
