The weekend is finally here and it’s all about Halloween fun for me! I plan to binge on a few classics that I couldn’t get to earlier this week on ABC Family, and hit up some Halloween activities. I just realized my event on Sunday has a costume contest, so I’ll most likely be digging around the house for something to piece together at the last-minute. Come Monday, I’ll hopefully have some fun photos to share!
The pickings are a little slim for weekend movies, with Steve Jobs being your best bet of the bunch.
Opening this weekend:
The Last Witch Hunter – PG-13 (Vin Diesel, Elijah Wood) This looks like proper October action/horror/fantasy business. Vin Diesel hunts witches. What else do you need to know?
Steve Jobs – R (Michael Fassbender, Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen) I know this is meant to be the “serious film” about Steve Jobs, and it certainly has the cred with an all-star cast and an Aaron Sorkin script. But everything I’ve seen in the trailer so far, I already knew from the 2013 Ashton Kutcher film Jobs. I’ll see this version because I love these actors, but I feel like someone beat them to the punch on this one.
Jem and the Holograms – PG (Aubrey Peeples) This is not the Jem I remember from my childhood. I know cartoons-turned-movies can run a little campy (see Scoopy-Doo and Josie and the Pussycats) but it’s also ridiculous when you try to turn them into “realistic” live-action movies. I remember fun pink hair and guitars…not a sad backstory about a bunch of adopted sisters with a lead who looks like she’s doing her best “I’m too cool to be in this movie” face. Wow. Sorry. I clearly have feelings about this. But you know what, I’ll let Jessica Chobot explain my rage…
Rock the Kasbah – R (Bill Murray, Bruce Willis) Does anyone know what this movie is about? Exactly. The trailer they’re showing is a hot mess, but basically this is about a music manager who takes one of his clients to Afghanistan, she backs out of the tour, and he discovers a new singer.
Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension – R (Chris Murray) I’ve never seen any of these movies (see previous posts on me being a scaredy-cat), but I think you can figure this one out without a plot summary.
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here on Monday!
