Friday the 13th and Madea Goes to Jail

Posted Monday, June 15, 2009, at 11:44 AM

Let's take a show of hands in how many people are actually excited or even motivated to go out and pick up one of the movies that were released this week? I guarantee you that I was not and managed to go the entire week without watching any new movies. This is fairly rare occurrence for me, but thankfully I had some old movies to catch up on in time for new releases at the theatre. That's right - Transformers 2 and the new Harry Potter are coming to the big screen extremely soon and it's time to start re-watching all the older HP movies and the first Transformers. Fortunately, I have a PS3 gaming system that plays Blu-Ray movies so I had the chance to experience the gloriousness (I realize this is not a word) of Transformer and Harry Potter in amazing 1080 HD. I love the quality of Blu-Ray but can't wait till they figure out how to do real 3D in the comfort of my home. That's gonna be amazing.

So, as I mentioned - I have not watched any movies this week, so I'm opening up the blog to the readers. If you watched these flicks in theatres or if you go out and rent them on Tuesday - come back and give the rest of us some sort of an idea if we should go out and watch them. I've provided the generic descriptions below for each of them.

Friday the 13th

Searching for his missing sister, Clay Miller (Jared Padalecki) heads up to the eerie woods of legendary Crystal Lake, where he stumbles on the creaky remains of rotting old cabins behind moss-covered trees.

And that's not the only thing lying in wait under the brush.

Against the advice of police and cautions from the locals, Clay pursues what few leads he has in the search for his missing sister, Whitney (Amanda Righetti), with the help of Jenna (Danielle Panabaker), a young woman he meets among a group of college kids up for an all-thrills weekend. But they are all about to find much more than they bargained for.

Little do they know, they've entered the domain of one of the most terrifying specters in American film history--the infamous killer who haunts Crystal Lake, armed with a razor-sharp machete... Jason Voorhees.

Madea Goes to Jail

At long last, Madea returns to the big screen in TYLER PERRY'S MADEA GOES TO JAIL. This time America's favorite irreverent, pistol-packin' grandmomma is raising hell behind bars and lobbying for her freedom...Hallelujer!

After a high-speed freeway chase puts Madea (TYLER PERRY) in front of the judge, her reprieve is short-lived as anger management issues get the best of her and land her in jail. A gleeful Joe (TYLER PERRY) couldn't be happier at Madea's misfortune. But Madea's eccentric family members the Browns (DAVID and TAMALA MANN) rally behind her, lending their special "country" brand of support.

Meanwhile, Assistant District Attorney Joshua Hardaway (DEREK LUKE) is on the fast track to career success. But Hardaway lands a case too personal to handle - defending young prostitute and former drug addict Candace Washington (KEISHA KNIGHT PULLIAM) - and asks his fiancée and fellow ADA Linda Holmes (ION OVERMAN) to fill in on his behalf. When Candace ends up in jail, Madea befriends the young woman, protecting her in a "motherly" way as only Madea can.

And that's it. Movie Gallery will have them available Tuesday June 16th, 09.
