What a welcome surprise this weekend turned out to be. Aside from the talking dog movie, based on the comic strip about a dog that definitely doesn't talk, there's a pair of movies that actually have a lot of promise.
You might want to stay away from the theaters this week, unless you still haven't caught 'Iron Man 2.' There's plenty out on Blu-ray, and I'm sure you've got a few you haven't watched yet. But if you're really itching to get out, you've got two choices. 'Pirates of the Caribbean' set in a desert, or 'Sex and the City,' also set in a desert.
The great thing about this week's releases, from a certain point of view, is that they're not going to stop 'Iron Man 2' from having another great weekend. No surprises at the theater this week, just a lot of stuff we've seen before.
