"... kick ass, and I'm all out of bubble gum." Famous words spoken by a (once) famous man by the name of "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, from a little cult film known as They Live. What relevance does it have to anything? Not much really, aside from the fact that Mr. Piper inadvertently name-checks this week's big opening release, Kick-Ass. But on a Thursday evening at 6pm, that's the best I could come up with. I apologize; Tomato brains are, after all, significantly smaller than human brains. Mmmmm, brains...
Anyway, we're gearing up here for the upcoming Summer movie season, which looks set to kick off unofficially sometime in May. But if Kick-Ass has any say in the matter, we might as well have already declared the season in full effect, as it's probably one of the most hotly anticipated films so far this year. If you want to get a taste for it before it opens tomorrow, hop on over and check out some video clips or photos from the premiere.
The other big release hitting theaters this week is Death at a Funeral, an American remake of a British comedy from a few years back. This time around, the cast has been replaced by an African-American ensemble of comedic talent, including the likes of Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, and Tracy Morgan, but how will it fare compared to the original? We'll find out this weekend. in the meantime, you can check out a few clips from the movie, or you can read up on this week's Total Recall, in which we count down the best Tomatometer-rated films of one of its stars, Chris Rock.
Not interested in any of the opening movies? Then I'll end with a curious trailer for a small, independent horror flick called The Human Centipede. If the title isn't revealing enough, then you'll learn all you need to know bout the movie from its trailer, which you can view HERE. Be forewarned, however; this is probably one of the more twisted things to come down RT's pipeline in a while!
Having said that, it's time for me to go home, rehydrate, and think about cute, fluffy things to wash away the images left imprinted upon my brain by The Human Centipede. Good night, folks!
