New in Theatres · February 10, 2012

Another week behind us and a whole new bunch of movies at the theatres, except it’s actually just a whole lot of the some old stuff. Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds team up for some “who’s working for who!?” double agent espionage crap, The Rock offers up more cheesy family fare and Rachel McAdams delivers another romantic chick flick that doesn’t have a hope in hell of being as beloved as ‘The Notebook‘.

Oh, and George Lucas has thrown Episode I back into the theatres again. Just to show that greedy old bastard what we think of his 3D re-release – we’re going to watch the original trilogy on VHS this weekend! Remaster that, Lucas!!!

Good Luck to you all!

No One Is Safe
