Published Nov 12, 2010TGIF! As is tradition, we have reviewed this week's new film releases for your perusing pleasure. Head on over to the Exclaim.ca Recently Reviewed section and find out what we loved and loathed that's opening at the box office this week.
First up, read our review of Roger Michell's working girl comedy Morning Glory and find out why we think the film, starring Rachel McAdams, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton, is a "mostly pleasant snack bar confection." Next, Danny Boyle has left the slums of India to tell another riveting tale of human perseverance with newest release 127 Hours. Based on a true story, the film stars James Franco as Aaron Ralston, a mountain climber pinned under a rock during a climbing expedition in 2003.
If alien apocalypses are more your thing, you will not want to miss our review of low budget sci-fi thriller Monsters, directed by Gareth Edwards. The film tells the tale of an extraterrestrial crash landing in the jungles of Central America and, years later, after the aliens have thrived, two Americans who end up in the wrong place at the wrong time. Lastly, check out our review of Ben Wheatley's Down Terrace and find out why we loved this film about a dysfunctional family of ex cons enough to compare it to the work of the Coen Brothers.
