Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D

Scrat’s nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he’s been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences – a continental cataclysm that triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home. — (C) Official Site

Scott’s Take

Early word is this one is strictly for the younglings. It seems as if Madagascar and Ice Age just won’t die.  This one will make money and I will be writing about Ice Age 4 sometime in the next couple of years.  How long was the Ice Age? Hurry up already.

Steve’s Take

Seems as though Scotty has a case of the Christmas in July Bah Humbugs! Enjoy this one with the kiddies!

Red Lights

Veteran paranormal researchers Dr. Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver) and Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) debunk fraudulent claims of ghost whispering, faith healing and other psychic phenomena by detecting what Matheson calls “red lights,” the subtle tricks behind every staged supernatural occurrence. But when the legendary blind psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro)comes out of retirement after 30 years, his once-fearless adversary Matheson warns Buckley to back off, fearing reprisal from the powerful Silver. Determined to discredit Silver, Buckley and his star student (Elizabeth Olsen) use every tool at their disposal to uncover the truth behind the charismatic, spoon-bending, mind reader. But Buckley is forced to reexamine his own core beliefs as his quest builds to a mind-blowing conclusion in this taut psychological thriller from award-winning writer and director Rodrigo Cortés. — (C) Official Site

Scott’s Take

Can someone please tell me what the fuck has happened to the great Robert De Niro? If he isn’t doing cheap comedies, he is practically making straight to DVD trash that might hit the multiplex for a couple of weeks.  How Red Lights got the green light we will never know.

Steve’s Take

I love Robert De Niro, but this looks like straight up trash. This one will be successful if the goal was to finish 4th or 5th in opening week and open with under $10 million. If you haven’t already done so, go see The Amazing Spider-Man or Ted.

Next Week

That’s all for this week.  Get ready ladies and gentleman. Next week the wait for your favorite caped crusader is over.  The Dark Knight Rises hits theaters next Friday.  I will be seeing a critics screening at the Imax on Tuesday or Wednesday, so I will surely let you know what’s in store.  Have a great weekend!
