In which review this weekend’s movies based on the only thing you need to watch – the trailers.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
AKA: Sherlock Holmes: Still a Badass in Slow Motion
This Guy Ritchie directed movie is, well… a Guy Ritchie directed movie. And, this Robert Downey Jr. performance is, well… a Robert Downey Jr. performance. So, if you liked the combination of these two in the past, you should very much enjoy it in the present, because it only looks bigger and better. However, if you’re not a fan them, then this movie is probably more bigger and badder for you. Plus, it has that girl with the dragon tattoo in it, and she’s also pretty badass.
Spoiler Alert: Sherlock Holmes will reveal everything you could possibly need to know about the movie at the end.
Rating: *** out of ****
AKA: That Bitch From High School Still Living in the Past
From a director’s stand point, just combine Reitman’s previous two films and add that girl stereotype of what you can’t stand. Sometimes people can’t move past their high school attitudes, and you want to hit them in the face for it. This movie metaphorically hits that girl (Charlize Theron) in the face by allowing us to travel along in her pathetic delusional life.
Spoiler Alert: Patton Oswalt teaches Charlize Theron the error of her ways, and shows how to look at the world differently.
Rating: **1/2 out of ****
Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked
AKA: Crappy Chipmunk Pun III: Another Dollar Squeezed from the Pockets of Parents
A gaggle of chipmunks get stranded on a desert island and Jason Lee tries to last as long as he can listening to their voices before blowing his own brains out all over the sandy beach. The chipmunks also sing songs.
Spoiler Alert: David Cross regrets his career choice on these 3 movies once his money has ran out.
