Over the last few years these dark, scary movies began being released in Februrary with quite a few on Valentine's Day. I got me thinking but then my University education popped in and got me seeing it from the advertisers and movie makers Point of View. They are banking on new relationships being started on Valentine's Day and in February and lovers will want movies that cause them to snuggle up close in the dark *wiggles eyebrows*
Also there is a creepy remake on Hansel and Gretel to a not so scary but hilarious spoof of a group of movies especially Paranormal Activity created by the creators of Scary Movies and White Girls. Come now, that is bound to be funny. I haven't had a chance to go take any of these titles in yet (the new stuff) because of work, school, writing, edits all that good stuff but I am going to.
Before February began, Arnold Schwarzeneggar headed back into the movie biz. Sure he didn't leave it completely but he took some time off to run California then come right back. His movie "The Last Stand" had some names in it like Johnny Knoxville, Forest Whittaker and Luis Guzman. The movie came out at a very strange time--right as there was a masscare in Connecticut and the fact the poster had him holding a giant gun in front of a school bus--er rather what looked to be a school bush--a bunch of people didn't think it was in good taste. But as usuall CNN caused a little hysteria probably without seeing the movie. But it wasn't really a school bus--if you watch the trailer you see it's one of those sixties looking hippie bus things. Not sure what the deal was with why it was yellow.
Adding stuff blowing up on Valentine's Day is A Good Day to Die Hard yes you heard right. It's another John McClane movie with Bruce Willis. According to IMBD the story goes like this - John McClane travels to Russia to help out his seemingly wayward son, Jack, only to discover that Jack is a CIA operative working to prevent a nuclear-weapons heist, causing the father and son to team up against underworld forces. It stars Bruce and some guy name Jai Courtney from Australia's Packed to the Rafters and Sebastian Koch.
Oh and there's a movie called Parker with Jason Statham and Jennifer Lopez. It came and went without much fanfare which worries me a little because Jason's movies always made more noise than this one did. JLo did nothing to save it. hrm...I wonder what that means.......So so far the movies this year hasn't been comepletely wasteful. I have yet to see any of them but from what I've seen they look okay.
Once exams are over, I'm going to spend a couple of days catching up on movies for this year.
