Blindness, My Name is Bruce, W., and more...Posted Tuesday, February 10, 2009, at 10:58 AM
My Name is Bruce
Movie Gallery isn't actually getting this flick, so I didn't have a chance to watch it, however if you are thinking about getting it some other way to watch - here's the description. Something evil is stirring in the small mining town of Gold Lick, and it's not happy. Guan-di, the Chinese protector of the dead with a strange affinity for bean curd, has been awakened by reckless teenagers, and now his bloody crusade to wipe out the town's entire population can only be stopped by one man - Bruce Campbell (the guy who starred in all three Evil Dead movies and Bubba Ho-tep), B-move star and deadbeat ex-husband extraordinaire, who's recruited to be their unwitting savior. Thinking the whole scenario's a publicity prank, Bruce is distracted from his mission by a hot mom and fan boys aplenty-- but when our hero has to face off against a dark force more fearsome than a Hollywood agent, the laughs and screams start flying!
This went to theatres with a controversy over the whole 'blind' thing and managed to only make a terrible $3.1 million. It's now released on DVD and I can't really recommend it.
This is the story of President George W. Bush Jr., told during the times when he was deciding on whether to go to war with Iraq or not. Through flashbacks, we see insights to his life growing up. The overall film is very interesting, but you've seen, read, or heard most of it before if you follow the news or read much information on the President. I found it very intriguing and would recommend it, if not for the semi-educational purposes but for the amazing performance by Josh Brolin who really convinces you that he is George W.. Brolin was not nominated for this performance, but it is a very good one and worth watching. The story speeds by and although you do really feel like you're watching a news recap, its fun and worth a shot.
Nights in Rodanthe and Miracle at St. Anna are two other movies released this week that I did not have time to watch. Both looked decent and did decent numbers at the box office, so they may be worth renting this week. Next week, we've got things like High School Musical 3, Changeling, and Religulous. Religulous may be my stab at getting some comments as everybody likes to argue about religion. We'll wait and see next week.
