weekly reeler Articles
You know it's a pretty dire week when the thing I'm most looking forward to is Fast & Furious 6. (And you can imagine how much it pains me to type those words.) There's not even a single new art title to brighten the weekend (no, last Friday's ActionFest offering, Java Heat, going to a full run doesn't count) — merely three mainstream movies I find it hard to get jazzed about. These are the conditions that prevail.
It is, I think, safe to conclude that the art films have it this week. We have two of those (it was three, but the third got wisely moved to next week) and two mainstream titles. The art titles are very choice indeed. The others — one I'm skeptical of, the other I'm confident will be just plain ghastly.
Regardless of how you feel about it, last week's Oz gave the box office a much needed jab in the lassitude. While this week does have one really choice -- and really specialized -- title, that won't have any bearing on national figures, it looks likely that Oz will top the box office again. But we'll see.
Much like last week, this one is not exactly bubbling over with titles. In fact, we once again find ourselves faced with two movies. Unlike last week, there's no sense here of movies being brought in just to put something new up on those screens. Indeed, these are movies people — not necessarily the same people — have been waiting to see.
Usually by this time of the year I've started giving some thought to what's likely to qualify for a "Best of" list come the year's end, but the truth is that so far the pickings have been what you'd call lean. We've had one sure thing and a couple of maybes — and leave us face it, that's not so hot for a year that's racing toward being half over. With that in mind, I'm pleased to announce that one more strong candidate opens this Friday. There are also three other titles that are not strong candidates.
A documentary! Animation! Science Fiction! Heart-warming comedy! No, they're not all in one movie (but, boy, there's an idea for you). They are, however, all coming our way this week. They do say that variety is the spice of life. Now we shall see if it's the spice of moviegoing.
It's a two and two week — two mainstream titles and two art titles (there's a flood of art titles just now), and all in all, it looks like the art titles are the better deal, though it's just possible that one of the mainstreamers will be a pleasant surprise. The other one? Far less likely. In fact, it's so less likely that no one booked the lesser one after all. However, something else is!
A singularly slack week is upon us — at least in terms of quantity. We're only looking at one mainstream release and one art title. Of course, most the world is likely to be resting up after the headlong rush to shell out big bucks to see The Avengers last week. But the week's two new offerings have something to be said for them.
Probably only a mere handful of us care that anything other than The Avengers is opening this week — and those of us who care about those other things probably are pretty ambivalent about The Avengers. It evens out. But the fact remains that there indeed are other things, and some of them are mighty tasty.
