Published Oct 21, 2011This weekend welcomes a number of new films to the box office, and our Recently Reviewed section is the perfect place to help you decide what you should or shouldn't go see. From action-adventure flicks to a another much-anticipated horror sequel, check out this week's movie highlights below.
First up is Paul W.S. Anderson's (Resident Evil, Alien vs. Predator) take on the classic story of The Three Musketeers. With names like Orlando Bloom, Milla Jovovich and Christoph Waltz supporting the title characters and many of the gruesome tale's sexuality and violence, the film provides an adaptation that will appeal to a younger crowd. And while it might not follow the most sensible plot line, the film still proves to be a fun watch.
Another action-packed project hitting the big screen this weekend comes from Oliver Parker's Johnny English Reborn, with Rowan Atkinson back as the title spy in the James Bond parody. Also hitting theatres with another sequel is the third film in the Paranormal Activity franchise. Paranormal Activity 3 is sure to scare audiences this weekend and into the Halloween season.
Brightening the mood a bit is Abe Sylvia's Dirty Girl, which tells the story of an unlikely friendship between the high school slut and an obese homosexual. Despite the film's off-kilter and sometimes politically incorrect humour, it "has the heart to make it all work."
And finally, David York delivers a documentary about Canadian natural gas saboteur Wiebo Ludwig entitled Wiebo's War.
