New in Theatres · January 13, 2012

Here we are on Friday the 13th! If you aren’t gripped with a paralyzing superstitious fear and do venture out of your homes today, you will be handsomely rewarded at the theatres! There are lots of choices this weekend!
…There is also another Disney 3-D re-release.

Rated · R

JOYFUL NOISE
“Dream A Whole Lot Louder”

Directing: Todd Graff
Writing: Todd Graff
Starring: Queen Latifah, Dolly Parton, Keke Palmer, Jeremy Jordan

Price of Admission will get you: one of those old, cliched ‘oh so inspirational’ movies about a group of underdog losers who take a risk it all in order to achieve their dreams. And they all learn a little something about themselves along the way. Barf!

  1. I knew an “old British gentleman” who once told me how he thought Margaret Thatcher was pretty much responsible for most of Britian’s current woes…I wonder how the movie will portray her.
