Don't Be Afraid of the Dark
Mood: Violence and horror
Brief synopsis: A young girl inadvertently unleashes a race of ancient monsters while exploring her father's 19th century mansion.
This reminds me of the little kid who was just too curious for their own good. Except in this case curiosity leads to the opening of something akin to Pandora's box, letting the monsters loose.
I don't see this one going on my list for me and the little one to visit. Not just because it would scare her...but it may give her some mischievous ideas :-). Besides, it would scare the heebee geebies out of me and we can NOT have that.
Moving quick, fast and in a hurry from the scary stuff, we get more violence, vengeance style.
Mood: Hell hath no fury like an assassin on a rampage
Brief synopsis: A woman becomes a professional killer in order to seek revenge against the ruthless gangster who murdered her parents.
Girl sees parents murdered but girl remains alive. Girl becomes an assassin as part of her plan to extract revenge for the murder of her parents while she was a child. I happened to see this movie trailer while at Game Stop doing some shopping for the little one and I must admit, it caught my attention.
This last movie is one I'm sort of on the fence about.
Our Idiot Brother
Mood: Comedy with a side of "Peace Man"
Brief synopsis: Scruffy idealist Ned (Paul Rudd) wreaks havoc on the lives of his mother (Shirley Knight) and three sisters, Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), and Liz (Emily Mortimer), while overstaying his welcome in each of their homes and voicing his opinions when they aren't wanted.
It seems like a feel good movie that may take a bit of time wading through the main character's unimaginably naive mistakes to get to the feel good moment. If anyone checks out this or any of this weekend's new releases, feel free to share your thoughts.
