TGITDNMAR (2/13/09)

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

Better late than never. Meanwhile...but one guess for the most recent SGC? Dwellers, you disappoint me - is it that hard?

The International and Confessions of a Shopaholic
I know it's a somewhat obvious point, but really - how perfect is it that a stimulus package for our dying economy is passed on the same day that a thriller about an evil banking conglomeration and a romantic comedy featuring an irresponsible spendthrift are released? Things could not have possibly been planned so perfectly; after all, these films were greenlit nine months ago or more. It would be like if the Kevin Kline comedy In and Out had been released on the same day as Clay Aiken appearing on the cover of People, only a hundred times more important and coincidental.
Fletch's Chance of Viewing (in the theater): The International: 54%
Confessions: 11%

You know what - up that percentage for The International to about 100% - TGITDNMAR SPOILER ALERT - I just looked at the upcoming releases for the next three weeks...and I think I'm gonna cry. Really, it's that bad. Just you wait.

Friday the 13th
Then, on top of all the coincidence, we have a purely planned release; that is, Friday the 13th on Friday the 13th. Really, though - this is exhibit A as to why I don't care much at all for the horror genre. What's it been, six years since the last sequel of the "old" Friday series, and here we are already with a reboot? Coming next year to theaters near you: a reboot of the remake of Dawn of the Dead. Wouldn't surprise me...
Fletch's Chance of Viewing: 0%

I sense that we'll be seeing a Nic Cage movie in the near future? Never say never... it happened last year. Remember how cheap we felt on the drive home from National Treasure II?

National Treasure II didn't even have Ben Franklin's 3D shades.

It's slow around this time with movies, usually a lot of the crap studios just push out cause they have nothing else to do with them. You do find rare gems like Taken was a solid watch. Only movie I am really looking forward to right now is The Watchmen.
