TGITDNMAR (7/6/07)

It's that time again for TGITDNMAR, which (obviously) stands for Thank God It's The Day New Movies Are Released. Unfortunately, due to the holiday, we're just going to have to pretend that today is Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday all rolled into one, as one of the films below was released on each of those days. But none of us wants to see the title for this feature listed as Thank God It's The Day New Movies Are Released, As Well As A Couple Of Other Days From Earlier In The Week. That could get a bit lengthy...

Transformers
Peter Cullen is officially one of my new heroes. I implore you to click on the link and check out his resume. Sure, the man is already an icon amongst most people (okay, males) between the ages of 25-35 for the simple fact that he is the voice of Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots and star of the show. However! Would you have ever guessed that he has been the voice of Eeyore for some time? How about a number of characters from GI Joe? Or Voltron? He even did a voice on the Transformers knockoff GoBots! All this and the man is barely 50 years old. Anyway, I've already seen the film (review to come next week), so...

License to Wed
I like John Krasinski. Mandy Moore's alright. Robin Williams used to be tolerable, even hilarious or poignant at times. Throw all that out the window. I think I'd rather watch Gigli or Monster-in-Law before heading out to see this steaming pile. But if you're a fan of director Ken Kwapis' The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, you can be my guest.

This is the film that last year's Omen remake could have been, if not in story, then at least in terms of ambition and/or mood. If you've seen the trailer, you know that this looks like a twisted, perverse movie, starring a kid who (if the film grabs any amount of success) will be typecast as "the creepy kid" for years to come. Sam Rockwell and Vera Farmiga (The Departed) co-star.

I am going to end up getting sucked into Licensed to Wed. I just know it.
