There are a few films that will be released in the Nashville area this Friday, September 30.
50/50 is the next bro-drama-comedy film starring Seth Rogen, but this time Joseph Gordon-Levitt is his right hand man. Directed by Jonathan Levine, 50/50 is based on the true story of Seth Rogen and his fellow writing buddy Will Reseir who found out that he had cancer. It’s a story of two best friends who find different challenging and humorous ways to deal with the fact that one of them has just been diagnosed with cancer. The film sports an impressive supporting cast that includes: Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard and Anjelica Huston. It’s currently sitting at a hot 93% on Rottentomatoes.
COURAGEOUS is the newest from faith-focused film from director Alex Kendrick. COURAGEOUS is about 4 police officers who risk their lives at work and try to be good fathers at home. There’s no doubt that if you were a fan of FACING THE GIANTS and FIREPROOF, then COURAGEOUS is right up your alley.
DREAM HOUSE is a mystery/thriller that stars Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts as the parents of a family that move into a new home. They soon find out that the house was the location of a vicious murder of the previous family who lived their. Daniel Craig and Naomi Watts are great actors, but this plot seems very familiar. What’s not such a great sign is the fact that there are zero reviews of the film out on the day before its release. Something tells me that this film won’t do so well with the critics or the box office. We’ll have to wait and see.
WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER is the latest pass for a “sex comedy” starring Anna Faris. She goes back down the list of all her ex-boyfriends to see if they can make it work. If you’re up to the task of watching Anna Faris retrace her steps to what I’m sure will be token character ex-boyfriend after token character ex-boyfriend delivering unfunny lines until she finds the right one, then go to town. My prediction is that the lessons learned are in the journey itself; for the guy she ends up with won’t have been an ex-boyfriend. WHAT’S YOUR NUMBER currently stands at a 24% on Rottentomatoes. My number will have to be higher than that to so see this movie.
