These are the movies released in theaters Friday October 26th, 2012.
Chasing Mavericks – Rated PG
Gerard Butler stars in this bio pic about soul surfer Jay Moriarity. This more about your spirit then actual sport. Butler has been good in the past. I don’t know enough about this movie to have any sort of idea how good this will be.
Verdict - Perhaps if I knew anything I could tell you if I wanted to see this.
Cloud Atlas – Rated R
Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Hugo Weaving lead an all star cast telling stories about the human condition and love. Tom Hanks plays up to six characters and several others do to. This is the Wachowskis (Those uhh people behind The Matrix) follow up to Speed Racer. I have always these “guys” films fun to watch. Plus this has Tom Hanks who I think is physically unable to be boring.
Verdict - While I have never loved the multiple story aspect of most movies, I will give Cloud Atlas a shot.
Fun Size – Rated PG-13
Teen hijinx on Halloween as a teen girl must look after her brother who ends up in a haunted house. Yeah. No
Verdict - I am stay far far far far far far away from Fun Size
Silent Hill: Revelation – Rated R
Based on several games I don’t understand, a woman discovers she has a dark secret that leads her to Silent Hill where all sorts of crazy stuff happens. The first Silent Hill was creepy, weird, and hard to understand. The trailers make me think the 2nd one will be more of the same. A movie that will be best enjoyed by not paying close attention to it.
Verdict - Perhaps if its on DVD but nothing more.
