Being released this week, in order by preference, are:
[Mar. 5, 2011 -- NYC]
And you know there's something odd here when the official nationwide release dare falls on a Wednesday instead of a Friday. IMDB has this must see film scheduled for Oct. 19, 2011.
One of the criteria I use for deciding which movies to select is DOB and origin of the actors. Michael Parks (originally from Corona, California) holds the leading role in this movie, and I've never wanted to be in New York so bad as I want to be there now, for the premier of this film today.
The link above should take you to imdb where you can watch the trailer. It's very enticing.
After a group of teens accept an online invitation for group sex, though they soon encounter Pastor Abin Cooper (Parks), his followers, and their sinister agenda.
Take Me Home Tonight (R) is a film I will consider for two reasons only. Anna Faris impressed me in earlier roles of her career as a pot head, and Teresa Palmer is a Pisces. Maybe three reasons. The film takes place in the San Fernando Valley, California, in the 80's. Hm, what was I doing in '88? Thinking of Ana, no doubt, and seeing her face in a co-worker at the customs brokerage firm where I worked. I actually shot a rubberband at unsuspecting Juana's butt. She had that general Ana look which I almost used as a reason to ask her if we knew each other. Four reasons! It's rated R.
Summer is winding down in the San Fernando Valley, and so are the '80s. But on one final night during Labor Day weekend 1988, five friends' lives will intersect at an all-night party as they declare-for the last time before turning a corner into adulthood. MIT alum Matt Franklin (Topher Grace) was poised to make the most of the Me Decade. He should be in a corner office, starting his upward climb to full-fledged yuppie-hood. Instead, the directionless 22-year-old has taken a part-time job behind the counter of a Suncoast video at the local mall. But when Tori Frederking (Teresa Palmer)-the most popular girl from Matt's high school-walks into the store, he decides to take one last swing at greatness. With his twin sister, Wendy (Anna Faris), and their best friend, Barry (Dan Fogler), he rolls out for an epic end-of-summer party. We follow the trio as they say goodbye to the teenage friends and personalities that defined them. As the night wears on, Matt fakes an identity to impress Tori... Wendy faces a proposal from her high school sweetheart, Kyle (Chris Pratt) ... and Barry, having just been fired from his dream job of selling luxury cars, takes a walk on the wild side. -- IMDb Plot: Take Me Home Tonight (2011)
Happythankyoumoreplease (R) [limited]
Sundance Film Festival
Six New Yorkers juggle love, friendship, and the keenly challenging specter of adulthood. Sam Wexler is a struggling writer who's having a particularly bad day. When a young boy gets separated from his family on the subway, Sam makes the questionable decision to bring the child back to his apartment and thus begins a rewarding, yet complicated, friendship. Sam's life revolves around his friends-Annie, whose self-image keeps her from commitment; Charlie and Mary Catherine, a couple whose possible move to Los Angeles tests their relationship; and Mississippi, a cabaret singer who catches Sam's eye. -- IMDb Plot:
Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives [NYC]
