Welcome back to the Weekend Movie Guide. This week The Rock in a movie that might actually make money, PROM!, and not much is coming home on DVD.
These are the movies that were released on Friday, April 30th, 2011
Fast Five – Rated PG-13
The Fast and the Furious guys are back and this time in Rio. They are being hunted by The Rock and they have also pissed off the mob. Much to my surprised I enjoyed the 4th Fast and Furious. I have heard interviews where the producers want to get away from street racing but still involve difficult car stunts. Ok sure. I suspect more of the same but with Vin Diesel it should be entertaining.
Verdict – I am interested to see when this film franchise will start losing steam. Probably will not be with 5 but maybe 6.
Prom – Rated PG
It’s a teen dramedy about Prom. Sign me up. Wait no. This is from Walt Disney so I suspect that it could do really well. But then again I no longer care about Prom or anything related to it.
Verdict – I will only watch this movie if it is like my own Senior Prom. We all ditched our dates to play X-Men the Arcade Game.
Hoodwinked Too! Hood Vs Evil – Rated PG
Red (Hayden Panettiere) and Wolf (Patrick Warburton) are on the case as they try to find Hansel and Gretel (Bill Hader and Amy Pohler). I never say the first Hoodwinked although I heard it was OK. This sequel isn’t so lucky.
Verdict – If you don’t have kids you should count your self lucky
Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night –Rated PG-13
Brandon Routh stars as a PI that specializes in the Paranormal. Hell is involved in this movie somehow. Based on the Italian comic book series. I am just excited to see Routh in a more traditional action film setting but I am not sure this is going to turn out good.
Verdict – I looks like a blockbuster, talks like a blockbuster, but is not a blockbuster. Will be good to check out on DVD.
Box Office Top 5 Movies In The Country
1. Rio – Rated G
2. Madea’s Big Happy Family – Rated PG-13
3. Water For Elephants – Rated PG-13
4. Hop – Rated PG
5. Scream 4 – Rated R
I am slightly surprised that Madea’s Big Happy Family did not take #1 but the reviews for that one have not been kind. I am happy Scream 4 is hanging in there. It will more than likely lead to a sequel.

This is another BBC Documentary in the vain of Planet Earth. Its shows like these that make you thankful you have a Blu-Ray Player.
Speaking of Blu-Ray Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas gets its a release in Blu-Ray. I am scared of this. Last time I watched Fear and Loathing I started to hallucinate. I wonder what will happen when I watch it on Blu-Ray?
Next week Seth Rogans attempt at being a super hero AND THE ALL MIGHTY THOR. The summer movie season is upon us. Sweet. See you next week.
