It's that time again for TGITDNMAR, which (obviously) stands for Thank God It's The Day New Movies Are Released.
Please bring on Machete. Even The American, which I really don't have all that much interest in is looking fan-damn-tastic. These two...yeah...
Awww...look at that - after the running joke that was this, Takers went and got itself a new poster.
I really don't know what else to say about this flick. It looks pretty horrendous, has been delayed who knows how many times, and is a horrible actors' showcase, with not only a pair of musicians starring, but Hayden Christensen and Paul Walker on board as well. All of a sudden, co-star Matt Dillon appears to be quite the thespian.
I just might have to see this eventually. Hopefully, it's enjoyably bad.

The Last Exorcism
The Exorcist and all of its sequels (I'm assuming). The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Paranormal Activity. The beginning of Constantine. This flick. Now, I'm not an expert on exorcism movies, but I can't help but notice one giant similarity between all of the movies I listed, which are probably amongst the most famous examples: the subject being possessed is always a female.
What's the deal? Can a man/boy not be possessed by an evil spirit? Is this some sort of representation of a male sexual fantasy, and the male-dominant Hollywood doesn't want to see a young man writhing around on a bed a.k.a. the only place where an exorcism can take place?
I don't care much about these flicks either way, but I see an opening in the marketplace. Someone get on it.
