HALL PASS



Best buddies Rick and Fred (Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis) have both been married for a long time. They love their wives, but, like some guys, just can’t help checking out every other woman who crosses their paths. 

Fed up with this habitual rubber-necking, their wives (Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) take a bold approach to revitalize their marriages by granting their husbands a “hall pass”: one week of freedom to do whatever they want, no questions asked. Seven days to see exactly what it is out there they think they’re missing… or stop looking once and for all.

At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But they quickly discover that their expectations of the single life—and themselves—are completely and hilariously out of sync with reality.

RED RIDING HOOD



For decades, the people of the village of Daggerhorn have maintained an uneasy truce with the werewolf, who prowls at every full moon, by offering the beast a monthly animal sacrifice to quench its appetite. But under a blood red moon, the wolf changes the stakes by taking the life of one of their own.

The victim is the older sister of Valerie (Seyfried), a beautiful, young woman, who has just found out that her parents (Burke and Madsen) have arranged for her to marry Henry (Irons), the scion of the town’s wealthiest family. But Valerie wants only Peter (Fernandez), the poor woodcutter she has loved all her life. Unwilling to be parted, the couple was planning to run away together, but, in a horrifying instant, the wolf changes everything.

As the townspeople hunger for revenge, famed werewolf hunter Father Solomon (Oldman) is summoned to Daggerhorn to kill the beast once and for all. But Solomon’s arrival brings only more turmoil as he warns everyone that the werewolf takes human form by day and could be any one of them. No one is above suspicion. Panic grips the town as the death toll rises with each red moon, tearing apart the once close-knit village. But it is Valerie who discovers she has a unique connection to the wolf that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect…and bait.

BATTLE: LOS ANGELES



For years, there have been documented cases of UFO sightings around the world — Buenos Aires, Seoul, France, Germany, and China. But in 2011, what were once just sightings will become a terrifying reality when Earth is attacked by unknown forces. As people everywhere watch the world’s great cities fall, Los Angeles becomes the last stand for mankind in a battle no one expected. It’s up to a Marine staff sergeant (Eckhart) and his new platoon to draw a line in the sand as they take on an enemy unlike any they’ve ever encountered before. BATTLE: LOS ANGELES was written by Chris Bertolini (The General’s Daughter) and produced by Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur (The Green Hornet, The Bounty Hunter). Executive producers are Jeffrey Chernov (upcoming Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Star Trek) and David Greenblatt. It was distributed by Columbia Pictures and has a run time of approximately 116 minutes. It has been rated PG-13 for sustained and intense sequences of war violence and destruction, and for language.

NORM MACDONALD: ME DOING STANDUP



Norm Macdonald, host of COMEDY CENTRAL’s “Sports Show with Norm Macdonald,” kills it in his first-ever full-length concert film, “Me Doing Stand-Up,” covering everything from cheating death, 24-hour news stories, shameful sex, serial killers and cheese sandwiches. Entertainment Weekly says, “His humor arises from a standard stand-up procedure — pointing out the contradictions in a subject and exaggerating them for comic effect — but when combined with his devilish smirk and a deceptively artful way of phrasing matters, it’s a potent talent. This special shows that he remains a consummate, if dark, stand-up as he gets big laughs from such subjects as alcoholism and murder.”

HALL PASS Film Review

Friday, February 25th, 2011





Boy, the synopsis sums it all up pretty nicely. There is one strong fact that needs to be highlighted about this movie though and it is that the Farrelly Brothers are the Writers and Directors. Now we have a better perspective of this movie, right? Sure, you might watch it and think that they have done better work, and you are probably right, but they don’t disappoint with this one. The movie is funny and you will laugh out loud a few times. And what’s a Farrelly Brothers’ movie without some good shock humor in it? Believe me, there are some doozies in this one. The icing on the cake is the very interesting storyline; controversial some may say, but interesting. Heck I wanted to watch the movie just to see how it would all pan out. READ FULL MOVIE REVIEW

But when a new enemy called Parallax threatens to destroy the balance of power in the Universe, their fate and the fate of Earth lie in the hands of their newest recruit, the first human ever selected: Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds). Hal is a gifted and cocky test pilot, but the Green Lanterns have little respect for humans, who have never harnessed the infinite powers of the ring before.
