What comes out this weekend? 11/7

by Joey Paur

So what movie are you going to see this weekend? I think most people are going to hit up Madagascar 2 and Role Models which I will see. I am also excited to see 'Repo: The Genetic Opera'. You once again have a decent selections of films to choose from. Check them out below and choose your poison.


Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa

Cast: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer

All the loveable characters are back -- Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Melman the giraffe and Gloria the hippo, King Julien, Maurice and the penguins -- in Madagascar: The Crate Escape. Left marooned on the distant shores of Madagascar, the New Yorkers have hatched a plan so crazy it just might work. With military precision, the penguins have repaired an old crashed plane -- sort of. Once aloft, this unlikely crew stays airborne just long enough to make it to the wildest place of all -- the vast plains of Africa itself -- where our zoo-raised crew encounters species of their own kind for the very first time. While discovering their roots, they quickly realize the differences between the concrete jungle and the heart of Africa. Despite long-lost relatives, romantic rivals and scheming hunters, Africa seems like a "crack-a-lackin" great place...but is it better than their Central Park home?

I am off to see this movie on Friday with my kids. I am sure it will be better than High School Musical 3.


Role Models

Cast: Seann William Scott, Paul Rudd, Christopher Mintz-Plasse

In Role Models, wild behavior forces a pair of beer reps (Paul Rudd & Seann William Scott) to enroll in a Big Brother program.

This movie looks likeit is going to be really funny. I look farward to watching it, I could use a good laugh.


Soul Men

Cast: Samuel L. Jackson, Bernie Mac, Sharon Leal

The trailer fro Soul Men, which is the last film of the late Bernie Mac. The film follows two estranged singing legends (Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac) from the band The Real Deal who agree to participate in a reunion performance even though it has been close to 20 years since they last spoke. As they travel cross country in a series of adventures and misdventures, they air old grievances about thirty year old betrayals and learn the music's still in them.

Bernie Macs last film looks like it could be a pretty funny one.



Cast: Jean-Claude Van Damme, François Damiens, Zinedine Soualem

Between his tax problems and his legal battle with his wife for the custody of his daughter, these are hard times for the action movie star who finds that even Steven Seagal has pinched a role from him! In JCVD, Jean-Claude Van Damme returns to the country of his birth to seek the peace and tranquility he can no longer enjoy in the United States.

This one looks surprisingly good! This will be Van Damnes best film tyo date.


Repo! The Genetic Opera

Cast: Anthony Stewart Head, Alexa Vega, Paul Sorvino

An epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Panic erupts and scientists feverishly make plans for a massive organ harvest. Out of the tragedy, GeneCo, a multi-billion dollar biotech company, emerges. GeneCo provides organ transplantation for a profit. In addition to financing options, GeneCo reserves the right to implement default remedies, including repossession. For those who can't keep up with their organ payments, collection is the responsibility of "organ repo men", skilled assassins contracted by GeneCo, ordered to recover GeneCo's property by any means necessary.

I will make time to see this flick. It looks awesome. I guess you have to have a certain taste for this kind of thing so if you got it you'll search it out and see it.


The Boy In the Striped Pajamas

Cast: David Thewlis, Vera Farmiga, Rupert Friend

Eight year-old Bruno is the sheltered son of a Nazi officer whose promotion takes the family from their comfortable home in Berlin to a desolate area where the lonely boy finds nothing to do and no-one to play with. Crushed by boredom and compelled by curiosity, Bruno ignores his mother’s repeated instructions not to explore the back garden and heads for the ‘farm’ he has seen in the near distance. There he meets Shmuel, a boy his own age who lives a parallel, alien existence on the other side of a barbed wire fence. Bruno's encounter with the boy in the striped pyjamas leads him from innocence to a dawning awareness of the adult world around them as his meetings with Shmuel develop into a friendship with devastating consequences.

This movie looks really good, and very sad, but it may have to wait for DVD.


The World Unseen

Cast: Lisa Ray, Sheetal Sheth, Parvin Dabas

In the pressure cooker of apartheid South Africa, two women meet and their worlds are turned upside down. Miriam is a traditional Indian mother - hardworking and self-effacing. Amina breaks all the rules by driving a taxi and setting up a cafe with a local black man. In the face of outraged disapproval, their friendship flourishes. But the price, for Miriam, is the discovery of impossible truths about her marriage. In a system that divides white from black, black from Asian and the women from men, what chance is there for an unexpected love to survive?

I'll pass.



Cast: Michael Madsen, Reynaldo Rosales, Heidi Dippold

From the best-selling novel by legendary authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker comes a story unlike any you've ever seen. Enter 'House' - where you'll find yourself thrown into a killer's deadly game in which the only way to win is to lose...and the only way out is in.

Sorriest bunch of sinners I ever seen. This movie actually doesn't look to bad. Had no idea it was even out there. I wouldn't mind checking it out.
