Theatrical Releases for February 12th 2010 Print E-mail
Thursday, 11 February 2010
ImageFinally things are starting to look up in the theatrical releases.  We’ve got werewolves, a rom-com with a star studded ensemble cast and a pre-teen action fantasy flick that’s been getting impressive reviews.  Click below to check out what's being released this weekend. Wolfman

The reviews of Wolfman are less than impressive, but I for one am still excited to see this.  Some may remember that this is technically the second time Benicio Del Toro has appeared as a wolf man on film.  His first was as Duke the Dog Faced Boy in “Big Top Pee Wee.”  The movie also stars Anthony Hopkins, though he appears to be playing Malcom McDowell based on the previews.    Still, there’s something compelling about a werewolf movie not penned by Stephanie Meyer.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

The Lightning Thief is an adventure fantasy movie aimed at pre-teens that seems like it was torn straight from the pages of Harry Potter and then mixed with a bit of Greek mythology.  The similarities don’t end there either, since the director is none other than Chris Columbus, who helmed the first two Harry Potter movies.  Critics say that Uma Thurman and Peirce Brosnon shine in this flick, and it may be wise to leave your preconceptions at the door.

Valentine’s Day

Ensemble casts are a time honored tradition.  Sometimes they work out well (Ocean’s Eleven) and give each star a chance to shine.  Sometimes they fail horribly (Ocean’s Thirteen) and throw too much in there for their own good.  Valentine’s Day is one of those movies that flops.  It’s got stars galore, including Jamie Foxx, Bradley Cooper, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, and Shirley MacLaine.  According to reviews though, this romantic comedy seems to lack romance.  And comedy.

Barefoot to Timbuktu (Limited)
