New Movies HotOrNot (2006/10/06)

October 6, 2006

Finally the slump breaks! The Bytown has a really good line-up this week. Two of the ones I’ve seen before and really, really enjoyed. The Departed looks like the best bet for mainstream.

The Departed – HOT. New Scorsese flick with all star cast: DiCaprio, Nicholson, Damon, Sheen, etc. This is a remake of a 2002 Honk Kong flick called Infernal Affairs. It looks like they did it up proper, I’m going to have to see this.

Memento – HOT. The Bytown is rocking next wed/thur. I love this movies, one of the best whodunnits ever.

Man Without a Past – HOT. Ties in nicely with Memento on the amnesia theme, I saw this a few years back as well. Heartwarming tale of a guy who loses his memory and how he readjusts to life.

The Science of Sleep – HOT. It’s directed by Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine, numerous music videos). Unfortunately, it is also written by him. Playing at Bytown entire week
The Conformist – HOT/NOT. 1970s Bernardo Bertolucci flick from back when he was good. I’m going to say skip it because “The Dreamers” (2003) was such an awful, awful, movie (even though Eva Green had such very, very large breasts).

Employee of the Month – HOT/NOT. Damn you Mike Judge. Everyone wants to see Office Space 2 and you bring us Jessica Simpson. I’m going to see it and be so very disappointed with you.

The Journals of Knud Rasmussen – HOT/NOT. Mediocre version of the Fast Runner.

Trailer Park Boys the Movie – NOT… or HOT? Fans are really excited about this. I’ve never watched the series.

House of Sand – NOT. Reviews be damned. This looks really boring.

Open Season – NOT. Reason not to have children.

Alex Rider Operation Stormbreaker – NOT. Another reason not to have children.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Beginning – NOT. This will never live up to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel I did in Grade Five with sock puppets.

Love’s Abiding Joy – NOT. Made for TV crap.

New movies playing in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada and the surrounding regions (Kanata, Barrhaven, Orleans, Gatineau, Hull). Updated daily.
