New Movies this Week

Change picture day last Wednesday saw the release of Step Up 3D, which has been getting good reviews and have, according to critics, effectively utilized 3-D style film-making into a dance movie. There really is nothing much to explain about the movie's synopsis except that it is one of those silly movies that revolves around dancing. For those who love dancing, this one is ought to be a must-see movie.

Also released last Wednesday is the comedy --Grown Ups. This American buddy-comedy film starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider. It's story revolves around a group of childhood friends, who came home and met up again, now as grown ups, trying to reminisce the fun and the gags of their childhood. This is your typical American comedy which is just a beerload of fun to watch for some; and maybe a bit lame for others. 

And this Friday comes the release of the much anticipated action movie which is Stallone's homage to old school action movies - The EXPENDABLES. This film which boasts an ensemble cast of action icons - Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, and they are joined by Terry Crews, with minor appearances of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis. There's also nothing much to explain here; just a couple of good guy mercenaries out to fight nasty bad guys, all you need to do is sit your ass down & enjoy the explosions. Sure, expect this to be campy and maybe just too testosterone driven, hey what do you expect from a movie that is an homage to old school action?

It's obvious where my crosshairs are set; see you later at the Expendables screening! ;)
