Taking Stock: 7/16/2010

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.


James: I’ve seen this already.  It’s the best film of the year so far and already amongst my favorite films ever.  What do I have to do to get you to go see it?  You’re not going yet?  Go.  Now.  No seriously, now.

Benn:  Best movie of the summer by far, and probably amongst the best of the year.

Dylan: My only concern is that I don’t have high enough expectations. Everytime I see the trailer, I get a little chubby in my pantaloons. Seeing it A.S.A.P.

Fil: I’m very obviously excited about this.  Hopefully some people (JAMES) don’t hype it too much.  Definitely going to see this tonight, go see it and form your own opinions people.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

James: This looks like it could be passably fun, but the reviews haven’t been great.

Benn:  Looks fun, and for some odd reason, Nick Cage looks very entertaining.

Dylan: These are the kind of roles that Nick Cage should be playing, the goofy, silly, wacky character (like his should-be Oscar nominated performance in Kick Ass!). If this doesn’t try to be serious in any way, then I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing it.

Fil: I’ve been dying to see a wizard battle on screen for a long time.  Harry Potter get’s close, but this looks like it might finally give me what I want.  Netflix’d
