Today's New in Theaters- 2/12/10

The Wolf Man: This one has some promise, I maintain-- good cast, durable premise, nice R rating instead of the usual bullshit horror cop-out PG-13 (if there's one thing in this world that shouldn't be rated PG-13, it's a remake of The Stepfather). But reviews thus far have been awfully indifferent; I might be holding off for DVD on this one.

Valentine's Day: No, no, we've been over this. Not gonna happen.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief: It's cute, really, watching Hollywood stumble and stammer and try their damndest to find the next Harry Potter series--they failed with The Golden Compass, they failed with Bridge to Terabithia, and the only made it to part two on The Chronicles of Narnia. Now, in the most transparent attempt to date, they went and hired Chris Columbus (you know, the Home Alone guy who helmed the first two Harry Potter movies-- the ones everyone agrees were the weakest) to take a stab at it. Good luck, boys!

  1. Bridge to Terabithia was a huge success, there was no franchise because there was only one book. The author and screenwriter TURNED DOWN Disney about a sequel, despite being offered a whole lot of money.
