Well last weekend Spider-Man 3 broke my heart. Ripped it right into two. But that’s okay, I’m over it and have moved on. Despite what a let down it was I’m sure it’ll continue on in its box office domination for several more weeks. If you’re wise enough to avoid it or wait for its DVD release then check out what’s coming out this weekend. You’ve got a decent mix here: zombie/horror, comedy, drama. Nothing looks too friendly for the kiddies as the lowest rating is PG-13. After looking through the three new movie options this weekend I get the feeling that it’s more like just one movie is coming out, the last two may look and smell like movies, but I ain’t touching ‘em.
Here are all your movie details & trailers for this weekend, May 11 - 13.

28 Weeks Later
Director: Juan Carlos Fresnadillo
Starring: Jeremy Renner, Rose Byrne, Robert Carlyle
Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy, Thriller and Sequel
Rated: R for strong violence and gore, language and some sexuality/nudity
Plot: Six months after London was struck by the rage virus, the city is being carefully repopulated by the U.S. Army. Though under quarantine, a carrier of the virus is admitted to the city and unknowningly causes a second deadly outbreak.
My Take: The first in the series, 28 Days Later, was a very cool zombie movie with good effects and plenty of startling moments. If zombie movies are your thing and/or you enjoyed the first one then this is one for you. Although it’s billed as a sequel and uses the same styled title, I’m willing to guess you could pick up just fine on the second one as I didn’t see any of the same people from the first.
28 Weeks Later Movie Trailer:
Director: C.B. Harding
Starring: Larry The Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, DJ Qualls
Rated: PG-13 for crude and sexual humor
Plot: Three pals head off for a weekend of beer drinking beer and gun shooting, only to be misidentified as Army Reservists and loaded on to a plane headed for Iraq. Further mistakes are made as the trio is ejected somewhere over Mexico, crash-landing in the middle of a village that’s run by a local warlord. Will they finish their beers and fight for Mexican justice — even though they believe they’re really somewhere in the Middle East?
My Take: Under no circumstances can I possibly advise you to see this movie. Unless you are Larry The Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, or DJ Qualls. Even then it’s questionable. I never got into the whole “Blue Collar Comedy” and this looks they’ve just rolled those characters right into a different setting. How exactly they got “ejected over Mexico” while heading to the Middle East is fuzzy for me but looking for logic in this type of movie isn’t a good idea. Personally, I’m excited for this movie to get released so Lions Gate Films will stop buying ad space and running that damn trailer all over site. In case you missed all of those trailer ads, here it is again, in non-ad format (see below).
Delta Farce Movie Trailer:
Director: Garry Marshall
Starring: Jane Fonda, Lindsay Lohan, Felicity Huffman
Rated: R for sexual content and some language
Duration: 1h 53m
Plot: A rebellious young woman (Lohan) is hauled off by her mom (Huffman) for a summer with her grandmother (Fonda).
My Take: Geez, and I thought Delta Farce looked bad. If Lohan wasn’t on my “I refuse to cover trash” list I’d discuss more on why this sounds more like a biopic of her life (substance abuse, dysfunctional sex life, failure at life, etc.). After all the attention Huffman got from ‘Housewives’ you think she’d get better movies than ones where she has to play a dude and ones like this. Then there is Jane Fonda, who appears have not learned her lesson from “Monster In-Law”.
