New in Theatres · October 07, 2011

It’s Thanksgiving up here in Canada and as such the weekend offers up lots of turkey, awkward moments with the family and giant futuristic Battle Bots! And honestly we can think of no better way to celebrate Turkey Day then with a movie version of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots!!…Well, maybe with some political scandals or a biological horror show.

Champions aren’t born. They’re made.

Directing: Shawn Levy
Writing: John Gatins (screenplay), Dan Gilroy, Jeremy Leven (story)
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo

Oh boy! In the future robot boxing is the big thing…yeah, robot boxing. Hugh Jackman plays a down on his luck promoter/loser who learns a little bit about himself from his son and a robot with a lot of heart. ‘Real Steel’ is like ‘Rudy’ … but with a crappy old sparring bot instead of a short, fat hobbit.

Price of Admission will get you Hugh Jackman learning a valuable life lesson from an obnoxious little kid and a fighting tin can.

Running Time · 127 min
Rated · PG-13

“Ambition Seduces. Power Corrupts.”

Directing: George Clooney
Writing: George Clooney, Grant Heslov (screenplay), Beau Willimon (screenplay, play)
Starring: Paul Giamatti, George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Ryan Gosling, Jeffery Wright, Evan Rachel Wood, Marisa Tomei

Set just before a tough presidential primary, a campaign press secretary becomes entangled in a political scandal that could jeopardize his candidate’s shot at the White House.

Price of Admission will get you an amazing all-star cast, lots of insider politics, backstabbing, scandals and corruption.

Running Time · 101 min
Rated · R

100% Medically Inaccurate

Directing: Tom Six
Writing: Tom Six
Starring: Laurence R. Harvey, Ashlynn Yennie, Maddi Black

A crazy hermit who idolizes the work of Dr. Heiter fantasizes about one-upping him and the original ‘Human Centipede (First Sequence) movie with a fabulous 12-person centipede of his own!

Price of Admission will get you a sequel much more disgusting than the original and considering the movie’s entire premise hinges on the idea of surgically linking a dozen people from mouth to anus it is bound to be … something truly unique and disturbing!

Running Time · 88 min
Rated · –

  1. I love Hugh Jackman, but I just can’t think about going to see “Real Steel.” “The Ides of March” looks good…but I am not a fan of George Clooney…and it baffles me who the audience is for “The Human Centipede.” It is too gross even for horror fans! !
