Kickin it Old Skool
Lots of people sometimes wish they could just fast forward their school days, and for Jaimie Kennedy this is precisely what happens in this movie. But not entirely, for as a 1980’s breadancer awakening from a coma in the late 2000’s, he soon experiences the many changes the world has undergone in the interim, not least of which all his old friends who have moved on. Kickin it Old Skool promises to live up to the hype surrounding it with superlative 80’s notalgia and copious amounts of humor.
Director: Harvey Glazer
Starring: Jamie Kennedy, Maria Menounos, Vivica A. Fox
Rating: PG-13


Spiderman 3
There’s no avoiding the inevitable, and another Spidey flick was in the offing since the entire franchise was revived a few years ago. For everyone seeking inspiration, here’s a tale of a superhero not only facing external foes but now his own demons and the lure of the dark side as well. That’s a little like taking prolonged movie breaks during exam crunch time, so perchance the newest entry in the series will have more educational merit than meets the web.
Director: Sam Raimi
Starring: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, James Franco
Rating: PG-13


Shrek The Third
While on the subject of sequels, here’s a trial in itself: can Shrek sustain yet another cinematic outing? For this episode, the plot goes a tad political, with Shrek called upon to succeed the mythical kingdom’s ruler, who has gone and fallen sick. Of course, our venerable hero desires not the powers of officialdom, and instead aspires to hold on to his simple life and dear friends. That’s the impetus for a slew of new shenanigans sure to take your mind off all that seasonal stress.
Directors: Chris Miller, Raman Hui
Starring: Mike Myers, Cameron Diaz, John Cleese
Rating: PG


Firehouse Dog
Stories of redemption and change often touch the heart and uplift the morale of those facing great adversity. So learn a lesson from professional canine Rexx, used to luxurious Hollywood living and great infamy, then suddenly friend and mascot of an entire crew of firefighters encumbered with a down-on-its-luck firehouse and scant motivation. Rexx and his various human friends then set to reverse their downturn, and if they can do, certainly you can too, no matter how many travails seems to be just around the bend.
Director: Todd Holland
Starring: Josh Hutcherson, Bruce Greenwood, Hannah Lochner
Rating: PG


The Flying Scotsman
Whenever the urge to give up visits you, think back to those who came before and triumphed inspite of seemingly insurmountable odds. Even people like Graeme Obree, a tragic character and partly unrecognized champion cyclist who reportedly rode to sporting glory on a contraption composed of debris, washing machine parts and stuff he found in the yard. This indie release also covers the irony in Obree’s achievements, which weren’t fully appreciated due to his health and other associated problems. The film stars Johnny Lee Miller, and that’s always a boon.
Director: Douglas Mackinnon
Starring: Jonny Lee Miller, Laura Fraser, Brian Cox
Rating: PG-13


Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End
For the culmination of this particular piratic saga, warriors from different parts of the world assemble to aid Captain Jack Sparrow, Will and Elizabeth in their ongoing battle against the nefarious Davey Jones and his ally Lord Cutler Beckett.
At World’s End appears to have what it takes to deliver a final, exciting episode fitting of the Pirates legacy, and it even stars Hong Kong’s Chow Yun Fat as one of the skilled pirates. Little use in a proper geography lesson, the last Pirates movie may still be lots of excellent fun.
Director: Gore Verbinski
Starring: Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom
Rating: PG-13
