Taking Stock: 4/23/2010

We enter another week of “Taking Stock,” our weekly column in which the entire staff tells you what they think of the movies coming out this week based on very little knowledge and first impressions.

The Losers

James: I think this looks like it could be pretty cool and the buzz is good, so I’m going to see it with hopes it pans out.

Benn:  It could be good, but it could be over-stylized garbage too.  It will be interesting to see how this does against Kick-Ass.

Dylan: Thank god this came out before The Expendables; it would have been overlooked and passed over as the comedic version of the film. Still, looks like it could be a hoot. Sorry, but I’ll be seeing Paper Man this weekend.

Fil:  I’m somewhat looking forward to this, it seems like it’ll at least be a good shoot ’em up, but it’s also something I’ll watch because I’m not interested in anything else coming out this week.

Anna: If I were a comic book gal, I’d probably have more reason to see this. But the title is such a turn off.

The Back-Up Plan

James: Generic romantic comedy that doesn’t even hold up both halves of the interesting pairing dynamic?  No thank you.

Benn:  Remember when J-Lo disappeared from the spotlight and stopped turning up in movies?  Those were the days.  Still, if J-Lo wasn’t going to do it, you know Katherine Heigl would have in a heartbeat.

Dylan: Sorry J-Lo. I’m still scared from Gigli. Not happening.

Fil:  What is the Back-up Plan?  The trailer gives no hints.  I WILL SEE THIS TO UNRAVEL THE MYSTERY.

Anna: Interesting idea, but I’m still not really in to romantic comedies. Only a different cast would give me a slight interest.

Oceans [4/22]

James: I think this is from a somewhat similar crew as Planet Earth right?  That shit is amazing, but I’ll be honest I’m too lazy to make room for this in my schedule.

Benn:  This nature documentary stuff is always breathtaking.  Why wouldn’t you want to see this?  What would you rather the see, The Back-Up Plan?

Dylan: What else was was Disney suppose to do with all that extra footage from Planet Earth? Might as well put it to good use. Besides, seeing animals do bat-shit insane bodily tricks is always a cool thing.

Fil: Yes.  Nature documentaries are the SHIT.  So hell yes I’ll be watching this in theatres buying it on Blu Ray

Anna: It looks wonderful, but I think I’ll devote my time to finishing Planet Earth before I try and see this.
