Movies Out This Weekend
The Pirates! Band of Misfits 3D - Directed by the other, non-Nick Park, director of “Chicken Run,” “The Pirates,” has actual potential to be a pretty solid, if not very good, children’s movie. Take your kid! See it by yourself high on marijuana or peyote. Smoke salvia during the film! It’s in 3D and cartoons are amazing in 3D. I was planning on seeing this, but it’s not playing until 7pm tonight, so I’m going to see “Cabin in the Woods” instead.
Five-Year Engagement - This movie looks sort of like shit, which is unfortunate because it is the same writing team behind the excellent “The Muppets.” Jason Segal stars and writes this flick about, I suppose, an engagement that lasts for five years. Allison Brie, Emily Blunt and Chris Pratt also star. So, this could be your thing. It could be my thing, but the trailer looked so bad.
The Raven - John Cusak stars as Edgar Allen Poe, who I guess is writing the poem “The Raven” in this movie. The trailer makes it look like he’s fighting evil or some shit. All I know is that it looks horrible, has a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes, and you would be a real asshole for going to see it.
