“Sorority Row”

09-11-09-Movie-soroityrowStarring Rumer Willis, Briana Evigan, Carrie Fisher.

Directed by Stewart Hendler.

As a remake of the ’80s slasher flick “The House on Sorority Row,” this looks unintentionally hilarious and not the least bit scary, which is actually right up my alley.

Probably not worth $10, but definitely worth a rental in a few weeks (this one won’t last long). Plus, Carrie Fisher’s in it. Who doesn’t love Carrie Fisher?

“I Can Do Bad All by Myself”

09-11-09-Movie-icanStarring Taraji P. Henson, Tyler Perry, Mary J Blige.

Directed by Tyler Perry.

Few directors infuriate me more than Tyler Perry. You get one cheer from Oprah, and you get to churn out terrible movie after terrible movie.

Nearly all of his films have hit No. 1 at the box office, which further proves how foolish the moviegoing populace can be. And don’t get me started on his poster, which apes from ’70s classic “Straw Dogs.”

And you have an Oscar nomination now, Ms. Henson. You can do better than this, playing an alcoholic singer having an affair with a married man who just might realize the error of her ways.


09-11-09-Movie-WhiteoutStarring Kate Beckinsale, Gabriel Macht, Tom Skerritt

Directed by Dominic Sena.

From B-movie schlockmeister extraordinaire Dominic Sena (“Gone in 60 Seconds,” “Swordfish”) comes this comic book adaptation about a killer on the loose in Antarctica.

Beckinsale is a U.S. marshal hot on his or her trail, but it’s doubtful anyone will care by the twist ending.


09-11-09-Movie-nineStarring the voices of Elijah Wood, Jennifer Connelly, Martin Landau

Directed by Shane Acker.

Based on Acker’s Oscar-nominated short film, a crew of renegade rag dolls fights against the machines that doomed humankind. It looks all cool and “Matrix”-y but I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a big mess, even if Tim Burton approves.
