October 12th Film Releases

| No Comments

Apparently the studios did not recieve my manifesto entitled, "No Christmas Before Thanksgiving," because this week my faithful, we have not one, but TWO movies all about Santa Claus' love and the power of commerce. I could just retch.

1) Kinsey
2) Finding Neverland
3) Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

Polar Express
I'm sure you know all about this movie by now. Remember the cause and see it after turkey day.

I have been waiting for this movie for months! This is a biopic about Alfred Kinsey, a biologist who made a name for himself through studying human sexual behavior during one of the most uptight decades of the last century.
Without him, we would still think the missionary position was risqué.

Seed of Chucky
I really want to hate this movie. You have no idea how much I want to hate this movie. The only problem is, it's very tongue in cheek. Jennifer Tilly plays herself and one of the evil dolls, and John Waters (the King of Bad Taste) also has a small roll.
It's not going to be good and it's not even trying to be good. You've got to love that.

After the Sunset
If I wanted to see another jewel thief movie, I'd rent The Great Muppet Caper.

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason
Finally, a heroine who makes me look intelligent and self-assured. Now that Ms. Jones has the boyfriend, how on earth does she prevent herself from sabotaging the whole relationship?
I loved the books and I've been waiting on pins and needles for the second installment.

Finding Neverland
This is Johnny Depp's Oscar vehicle for 2004. The film is about JM Barrie and the inspiration behind his play Peter Pan.
I doubt you'll see any Keith Richards impressions, but I've never seen Depp play a character that wasn't deeply disturbed. A tendency which makes for great theater.

Veer Zaara
An Indian fighter pilot falls in love with a Pakistani woman and has 20 years in prison to recount their affaire.
I'll have no trouble missing this one.

A bunch of strangers in New York come together to celebrate Christmas. Now that is a miracle.
You know the rule. Don't be tempted by this pile of garbage, see it on TNT around Thanksgiving, that way you won't be supporting it in the theaters. Manifesto maintained.
