New in Theatres · September 16, 2011

Boycott the abomination that is the Star Wars Blu-Ray box set and get out and see one of the three new movies in the theatres this week!

DRIVE
“There Are No Clean Getaways”

Directing:   Nicolas Winding Refn
Writing:   Hossein Amini (screenplay), James Sallis (book)
Starring:   Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan, Bryan Cranston, Christina Hendricks, Ron Perlman, Albert Brooks, Oscar Isaac

Trying to sell the ‘Transporter’ and ‘Fast and the Furious’ franchises to the sophisticated arty crowd could be a difficult task. But casting indie darlings Ryan Gosling and Carey Mulligan is a pretty good start.

Price of Admission will get you a lot of Ryan Gosling looking hot, driving fast and killing people. Well worth $10 bucks if you ask us!!

Running Time · 100 min
Rated · R

 STRAW DOGS
“Everyone Has a Breaking Point”

Directing:   Rod Lurie
Writing:   Rod Lurie, (screenplay),  David Zelag Goodman, Sam Peckinpah (earlier screenplay), Gordon Williams (book)
Starring:   James Marsden, Kate Bosworth, Alexander Skarsgård, James Woods

A remake of the 1971 controversial Sam Peckinpah classic set this time in the southern United States. Cyclops and Lois Lane relocate and try to make nice with the locals, but if the movies have taught us anything it is to avoid the “Deep South” and everyone who lives there at all costs. This movie is no different.

Price of Admission will get you wishing you’d avoided the “Deep South” and just rented the original.

Running Time · 110 min
Rated · R

I DON’T KNOW HOW SHE DOES IT
“If It Were Easy, Men Would Do It Too”


Directing:   Douglas McGrath
Writing:   Aline Brosh McKenna (screenplay), Allison Pearson (book)
Starring:   Sarah Jessica Parker, Pierce Brosnan, Greg Kinnear, Christina Hendricks, Kelsey Grammer, Seth Meyers, Olivia Munn

I don’t know how she does it either! But, Sarah Jessica Parker has managed to get herself yet another job! This time she’s trying to achieve a balance between her work and personal life.

Price of Admission will get you into a virtually empty theatre watching SJP running around trying to juggle her business lunches and family time.

Running Time · 95 min
Rated · PG-13

  1. I like to think of myself as a member of the “sophisticated, arty crowd” and I am wanting to go to the theatre right now to see “Drive.” I also like your line about 10 bucks getting you “a lot of Ryan Gosling looking hot, driving fast and killing people.” Ha! Ha! This movie is genius, because it allows the sophisticated arty crowd to watch a type of movie (i.e. a stupid popcorm movie full of violence and car chases) that they may have secretly wanted to watch all along but didn’t dare to for fear of being ridiculed by all their sophisticated arty friends! Ha! ha!
    Straw Dogs…I am not sure…I think I would rather watch the original.
    “I Don’t Know How She Does It” looks like the crud that is left at the bottom of the barrel after you scrape the bottom of the barrel.
