This week seems like it’s another one of those “catch up on older films I haven’t seen” weeks. Sure, The Mechanic sounds like a popcorn riot and Biutiful looks to crush the very fiber of your soul. I’m just not all THAT anxious to see any of these this weekend. Your mileage may vary, however. Do any of these look watchable to you? Let us know in the comments! As always, you can click on the poster or the title to go straight to the trailer.
Films after the jump!
Directed By: Simon West
Thoughts: The ingredients are Jason Statham, Ben Foster and shit exploding.
Diagnosis: What more do you want?
Director: Mikael Håfström
Thoughts: Perhaps one of the creepiest poster campaigns in awhile. I mean, have you ever been driving along at night and seen THAT staring back at you? Enough to make you crap your pants.
Director: Alejandro González Iñárritu
This is a story of a man in free fall. On the road to redemption, darkness lights his way. Connected with the afterlife, Uxbal is a tragic hero and father of two who’s sensing the danger of death. He struggles with a tainted reality and a fate that works against him in order to forgive, for love, and forever.
Thoughts: Javier Bardem. And other stuff happens too.
Diagnosis: Curious to see.
|From Prada to Nada
Director: Angel Gracia
Thoughts: It’s about rich people who are forced to be poor. And it has the girl from Spy Kids in it.
|Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster
Director: Wilson Yip
Thoughts: I still have to see the first one.
Diagnosis: Want to see!
Director: Gregg Araki
Thoughts: Despite the insanely trite line about Mel Gibson, the trailer kind of has me hooked. And they claim it’s Sci-Fi, and I like Sci-Fi.
Diagnosis: Curious to see!
