TGITDNMAR (10/31/08)

It's that time again for TGITDNMAR, which (obviously) stands for Thank God It's The Day New Movies Are Released.

It's not even my birthday (though today does mark the LAMB's first birthday!), but I got my wish. We've gone from a few weeks in a row with up to 4 or 5 wide releases back to a normal one this time around, as there are only two. As a bonus, I've barely heard of the first one (not all that surprising given the genre, though). Either way, it makes for an easy decision for Mrs. Fletch and I this weekend...

Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Has it really been nearly ten years since Kevin Smith made a movie that I cared about? Dogma was released in 1999! Though some loved his Clerks sequel, I surely wasn't one of them, and his other features (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl) are filed in my head as "underwhelming but kinda fun" and "no interest in seeing," respectively.

This one feels different. Maybe it's the Rogen/Banks-led cast (I'm also looking forward to Craig Robinson, who almost stole Pineapple Express), maybe it's the renewed sense of controversy in Smith's work (see this post from From the Front Row for more on this sad, but not entirely unexpected turn of events) - whatever it is, I'm psyched to see this.
Fletch's Chance of Viewing (in the theater): 99%, or less than the percentage of my daily recommended intake of fat grams I'll be ingesting today. Damn Halloween candies.

The Haunting of Molly Hartley
The poster for this horror flick lists a bunch of names - Haley Bennett, Jake Weber, Chace Crawford, Shanna Collins, etc. - and I've not heard of a single one of them. In fact, looking at the full cast and crew, I don't think there's a single person that I'm familiar with. For a feature film with a $5 mil budget being widely distributed, this may be a first. It's all the same, I suppose, though, as I'd likely not be going anywhere near it anyway. Weird, though. Are these all CW/WB/Disney Channel kids or something?
Fletch's Chance of Viewing: 0% , or equal to the percentage of actors I...

4 people have chosen wisely: on "TGITDNMAR (10/31/08)"

lol no, Jake Weber plays Patricia Arquette's husband on Medium. He was good in Dawn of the Dead (2004) too. *nods*

You forgot Rock n Rolla which opens everywhere this weekend, unless you mentioned it when it was in Limited release.

And I got burned badly by The Exorcism of Emily Rose so I'm avoiding all movies titled The (Verb) of (Full Female Name).

And for the record, Zach and Miri kicked ass.

Fletch said...

Gwen - thanks for the info. I've seen Medium once of twice, but not enough to know that. Any clue on the others?

Jason - nope. Rocknrolla was indeed covered in a previous installment. Glad you're on your toes, though.

I too saw Zack and Miri, and I pretty much agree with you.
