OK, it’s January, a notoriously dark time at the cineplex: dark in terms of genre, in terms of quality and in terms of attendance. The good news is, if you want to curl up on your couch with a good movie, there are plenty of options out there. And should you be in the mood for a little light-hearted action, well the news just gets better and better. Here are the latest and/or most popular rentals:
Everybody knows that there is no industry that can beat a dead horse like the movie industry. They’re making a sequel to Grown Ups, for God’s sake. On a positive note, when they have a good thing, they know it.
Well, Oscar season may be just around the corner, but it’s not here yet. So if you aren’t in the mood for a car chase or see a bunch of stuff get blown up, I suggest you avoid the Cineplex this month. The bad news: Yes, it’s the standard pabulum or sequels and remakes. The good news: Some of them look awesome.
