At The Movies – 28/10/09
Want to know what’s starting at the movies this week? Look no further.
Michael Jackson’s This Is It (G)
Only in cinemas for two weeks, this movie takes us behind the scenes of the rehearsals of what would have been Michael Jackson’s final concert, if not for his untimely death. I’m not the greatest Jackson fan, but I can’t deny that there’s a certain curiosity.
The Box (TBA)
Donnie Darko is one of my all time favourite movies. So this new offering from Richard Kelly has got me excited. Cameron Diaz stars in this film that poses the dilema: you are given a box with a button. If you press the button, you will be given 1 million dollars. But someone, somewhere that you don’t know will die. What would you do?
Prime Mover (M)
I don’t know much about this film. It’s an Australian movie with Ben Mendelsohn. Here’s the description:
A diesel charged romance about ambition, pressure, responsibility and the love shared by a man, a woman and his truck.
It Might Get Loud (TBA)
For the hard core guitarists out there, here’s a doco featuring The Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White.
The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Heath Ledger’s final film. This looks visually spectacular.
What are you looking forward to? If you’ve seen any of these movies, is there anything significant in them for Pop Culture Christ?
