Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of June 3

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of June 3

Mutants take center stage this weekend, and Mandy Moore plays a marriage counselor trying to prevent her parents from divorcing. There’s a couple documentaries thrown into the mix, and that god awful Lion of Judah gets either a wider release or an official one. Jean-Luc Godard’s subtitle-less piece gets play on one screen and Submarine attempts to quirk us all to death.

Are you going to see anything this weekend? Do any of these films look particularly interesting? Do you agree or disagree with any of my sentiments? Let your thoughts be known by commenting below!

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of May 27

The Todd Phillips crowd gets a second helping of..whatever, and the kiddies get a sequel to a pretty decent CG-animated film. But the biggest release this weekend (and for me) is The Tree of Life. Just give that trailer a gander and you’ll see why I’m excited to see it.

What say you? Are you checking out any new films this weekend? Are you going to see anything that came out last week? I’m kind of curious to see what others thought about Midnight in Paris or if anyone else got to see Went the Day Well? Basically, I want to hear from you!

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of May 20

You’ve got some Pirates this weekend and Woody Allen if you’re lucky. The rest are pretty much rental fodder if they’re even your thing. What say you? Anything look good this weekend? Sound off in the comments!

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of May 13

This weekend there are a bunch of interesting documentaries playing in one to two screens. Oh, yeah…and then there’s the Bridesmaids and Priest. If ever there were a weekend to save your gas money and enjoy a rental, this would be the one. If you plan on seeing any of these films this weekend we’d love to hear from you, though. Sound off in the comments about whether or not my diagnosis on Bridesmaids was faulty or if there is some good to be had in Priest.

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of May 6

One of the big Marvel releases for the summer is out this weekend, and Rutger Hauer shoots everyone to bloody death. There’s also a dumb romantic comedy and a slew of limited releases that might actually be worth checking out. There’s pretty much something for everyone this weekend, so get your ass out to the local cineplex and watch some films! And then come back here when you’re done and tell us what you thought of the film. Or just tell us what you think now and don’t go see anything. I’m pretty flexible here, people!

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of April 29

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of April 29

This is an odd weekend for film as there’s not a whole lot out and the quality varies dramatically. You’ve got the fifth installment of the Fast series, as well as a comic book adaptation that looks questionable at best. Werner Herzog’s 3D masterpiece debuts this weekend and proves that 3D can be done well. 13 Assassins is also out in limited release and it’s probably the best one you could possibly see. Planning on seeing anything this weekend? If so, let us know in the comments. Would love to get some discussion on these films!

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of April 22

It’s an odd weekend for films as there aren’t all that many choices. The top contenders this weekend are Incendies and Stake Land, which have a bunch of good reviews floating around. Legend of the Fist, The Greatest Movie Ever Sold and The Warring State all look interesting, but you can probably catch those in the rental phase if and when they make their way to Netflix or Redbox. Are you planning on seeing anything this weekend? Any of these films? Let us know!

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of April 15

Kind of a slow weekend for film. If you had planned on catching up with older releases, now would be the perfect time to do so. Not much here that you couldn’t wait for rental to see, and the tent pole releases this weekend certainly aren’t worth the $13 ticket price. But if you do plan on seeing anything from this list, let us know what you think. I am curious to hear what other people have to say about The Conspirator and if there’s any bit of witticism left in the tired Scream series.

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of April 8

Diagnosis:Film-Weekend of April 8

This week we get a dumb remake, an interesting action thriller, a sappy surfer flick, a stoner fantasy comedy, a film about Bill Hicks, a documentary about the 70s DIY film movement, an IMAX animal thing, an infuriating romantic comedy and Meek’s Cutoff. Really, that’s about it. The rest are mostly “whatever.” My money is on that action thriller, by the way.

What are you planning on seeing this weekend? What do you think based on the trailers? Do any of these look good? Sound off in the comments section!

This weekend we’ve got the jellybean-shitfest that is Hop, the horrifyingly lame Insidious as well as a completely cut up version of The King’s Speech. Source Code is also playing this weekend, which is my personal choice for viewing this weekend. What are you guys seeing? Do any of these films stand out to you? Let us know in the comments!
