Just so you know, I’m not snubbing American Idol mentors. The Last Song with Miley Cyrus opens on Wednesday, March 31st, so that’s why this movie is not included in the poll. You’re all going to go see it, right?? ;) I Love You Philip Morris and Leaves of Grass and The Runaways open wide in April, but were included in previous threads, so I’ve left them off this month’s list (Leaves of Grass partly because it looks BAD to me!!).

I will absolutely go see Nightmare on Elm Street even though I am sure it will suck but it is my favorite horror franchise and I must go see it.

I think Date Night looks hilarious, so I checked that box, too.

After watching all the movie trailers, I wondered if I should do a movie thread this month. I couldn't believe how many CRAP trailers I had to watch over and over again. I swear this is the worst month for new movies since I started doing these threads... :(

Okay. You've been warned. Watch at your own risk!!

That said, I did enjoy a few.

I didn't realize the plot of Date Movie was more intriguing than I had expected. And the end of the trailer made me laugh out loud, which I rarely do.

Another bright spot was A Shine of Rainbows. I had not heard of it, there are not a lot of big name stars in it and the budget for this movie was probably tiny. Normally I would not have included a movie like this in the poll. But after watching so many CRAP trailers, this one stood out and it even made me cry. So it took me by surprise. If this movie is half as good as it's trailer, then it should be considered a must-see.

After.Life was another really good trailer, one that makes you want to see the movie... "but what really happens!!??" :D The Greatest looks intriguing, if a little self-absorbed.

Two others worth mentioning. The Back-Up Plan has Alex O'Loughlin with numerous shirtless shots (that alone surely worthy of the ticket price :lol:) and Gunless has the still-beautiful Paul Gross in it (as a cowboy, to boot - yee-haw!!).

Other than that...SKIP THEM ALL!!! (Well, maybe go see Clash of the Titans...let's wait for some reviews...)

I hope COTT is at least decent. The director already has it in mind to do two more sequels after this.

I think I'll see Date Night, but only because of Tina Fey. If it was someone else I don't think I'd bother.

I fear for Death at a Funeral. American remakes of truly funny British comedies rarely work. The wit just doesn't seem to translate.

I can't believe this one is being re-made already. The original was only from 2007, I believe, and it was great! No reason to touch it, especially since it was in English. Strange that Peter Dinklage is playing the same role in both versions... It's also strange that the new version is directed by Neil LaBute and it still looks bad (LaBute has directed Lakeview Terrace, Nurse Betty, In The Company of Men and Possession).

On the plus side, we'll get to see James Marsden almost completely nekkid... :grope:

The trailer for Death at a Funeral looks all sorts of :lol: I want to see the original, though.

Okay as a child I saw COTT and it was :eek:. Medusa does that to you :lol:

I absolutely love Greek mythology as a child; I watched Kevin Sorbo's Hercules, Lucy Lawless's Xena, and the Disney Hercules. I was fortunate enough to take a bunch of mythology related classes in the past two years. I admit that other than Medusa, I remember nothing else about the film (maybe the part with Andromeda and the Godzilla-Kraken also). So I went to look up the original and the new one. Ultimately, Hollywood storytelling burns me again. :lynch:

I don't remember how accurate Xena and Hercules was because it's been a very long while but I recently rewatched the Disney one. It was cute for a Disney film but that was it. I feel conflicted over COTT because it's so misleading. I didn't know about its new plot until recently because I haven't been up-to-date with film news post-Olympics. My geeky self is seething that Hades is once again the villain and while the title is Clash of the Titans, there are no actual Titans in the film.... because they have to be locked in the depths in order for Zeus to rule the skies (for Hades to wage war against in the film.)

This is probably one of the few times I get to see a Greek mythology-related film and the effects look great. I'll probably suck it up and go watch that since the other movies don't really excite me.

Possibly COTT, but only because Alexander Siddig is in it.

I want to see Clash of the Titans, Why Did I Get Married Too(I watched the first one on TV and really liked it, last week), Date Night, Death at a Funeral(this one looks hilarious, and I loved the British version as well), and Kick Ass.

I won't see all of them in the theater, but I'll see them eventually.
