Pop Culture Christ Movie Guide: 11/02/2010

It’s been a long time since I’ve written one of these. I haven’t even stepped into a movie cinema since last year. What have I missed? Anything I should rush to see? I’ll be checking out Sherlock Holmes at the Moonlight Cinema this week. Anything else?

Let’s get into this week’s new releases:

  • Valentine’s Day
  • The Wolfman
  • A Prophet
  • My Name is Khan
  • Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Valentine’s Day (M)

We don’t do Valentine’s Day in our home. It’s all a bit too artificial and forced. And I thank God that my wife feels the same as I do. Not once have I been in trouble for not getting her something on Valentine’s Day. My feelings about Valentine’s Day have more than likely soured me on the idea of a Valentine’s Day movie.

The Wolfman (MA)

I’m noticing a trend while writing this post. I’m one big cynic this week. Here’s a property that I loved as a kid – I watched all the old Universal horror movies over and over again. The Wolfman included. What do I think about this remake? I’m bored. Horror movies set in an historical setting just don’t grab my attention. Should I reconsider?

A Prophet (MA)

This French film is a crime drama set in a prison. Could be interesting.

My Name is Khan (TBA)

What looks to be an exploration of Muslim/American relationships in a post 911 world with a dash of intellectual disability thrown in.

Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief (M)

When I was a kid, I loved Greek mythology. A teen adventure where a young bloke interacts with Greek gods in a modern day setting is just the thing I would have enjoyed. These days? I’m not so sure.
