This weekend welcomes only one brave little soilder to challenge ‘The Avengers‘ at the Box Office. Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s eighth colaboration brings the updated 60s/70s gothy soap ‘Dark Shadows‘ to the big screen. Though the original was dark and dramatic, they’ve gone the ‘21 Jump Street‘ route and turned it into a campy comedy.
Though, I would be a liar if I told you I’m not looking forward to seeing something along the lines of a blood-sucking Captain Jack Sparrow in a severely manicured hair-do!
Also, don’t forget that Mother’s Day is this weekend! Be sure to do something nice for her!! The SurlyGurls wish all the Moms out there a great day on Sunday!!
