Weekend Report: Lather, Rinse, Repeat

You may be asking yourself why this weekend feels so familiar. Is it the fall breeze returning to your day. Unfortunately, no. It's the repeat of so many films you've already seen in different forms. The most obvious example is Avatar: Special Edition, which I can't believe It's your best chance at a fun experience at the movies this weekend. Then again, you could just go home and watch Avatar on DVD and you'll probably get the same experience. OR you could stay at home and watch Precious: Based on the novel Push by Sapphire.

Other than that, I really can't recommend anything new this weekend, because there isn't anything new. Takers is just another rehashed form of The Losers or something else like that. The Last Exorcism follows along the same sort of plot as The Exorcism (big surprise). Centurion wreaks of Gladiator, or rather a less engaging version of Gladiator. In short, Robin Hood. We have more interesting films on the way, but it'd be nice if we didn't have to wait so long to get the pay off we deserve.

My Opinion: This weekend offers a last opportunity to catch up on the big films this summer you may have missed. Skip out on all the new releases or re-releases, and perhaps you won't be the only person on earth who hasn't seen Inception. Or you could be one of the first people to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, before it becomes a cult classic. I'll be seeing Winter's Bone this weekend, and I'll get a review up for you on Sunday at the latest.
