Published Aug 12, 2011Your summer is running thin, so it is time for you to seriously consider which movies you'll choose to see and which you won't. Check out our Recently Reviewed section and read on to find out which films are out in theatres this weekend.
The big blockbuster this week is most likely the gruesome Final Destination 5. The movies is the fifth -- yes, the fifth -- time an unassuming teen has a premonition that saves dozens of lives that are then doomed to die a horrible and violent death. Check out the full review to see if it's better or worse than the last four instalments.
To lighten up the mood, we have a review of 30 Minutes Or Less (pictured), starring Jesse Eisenberg and Danny McBride. The film follows a pizza delivery man-boy who has a bomb strapped to his chest, and is then told to rob a bank or the bomb will detonate. A silly plot will probably provide a few laughs if Aziz Ansari has anything to say about it.
Next, Gleeks everywhere can finally check out Glee: The 3D Concert Movie. The movie is essentially a concert filmed in 3D, featuring covers of pop favourites by the Glee cast. The Help, starring Emma Stone, is also out this weekend. The film is based in Jackson, MS and tells the story of a society in which maids work for the benefit of the elite. The film shows the flip from treating the maids with indifference to working to better their standards of living.
Lastly, we have a review of The Whistleblower, which dramatizes a story of UN corruption and underage sex-trafficking in post-war Bosnia. Check out the full review to see if the emotional subject matter was handled tastefully.
