'The Pirates! Band of Misfits' starring Hugh Grant

Oh what to see this weekend?  This weekend we have movie reviews coming out for all the new movies you, the movie fan are interested in.  Looking over various websites, it seems that the biggest movie hit out there, per movie critics of all types, say that the overseas movie, The Avengers, is an outstanding movie.

The Avengers opened internationally on Wednesday, breaking all kinds of overseas box office records.

The Marvel tentpole movie of all tentpoles was followed by The Pirates! Band of Misfits, which is generally getting very good reviews.

If you like the idea of a very long engagement, The Five-Year Engagement is getting good reviews.  Just good, and maybe nothing to write home about.

Safe, with Jason Statham is also getting good reviews.  Come on, it’s Statham in an action flick.  He usually delivers awesome popcorn-fun action films.

The big surprise to me is the John Cusack starring platform called The Raven.  Dang… that movie is getting weak to bad reviews.  Who’d a thunk?

Rotten Tomatoes:

  • The Pirates! Band of Misfits: 87%
  • The Five-Year Engagement: 60%
  • Safe: 55%
  • The Raven 19%

I’ll let the numbers speak for themselves.  Me… I’m watching Ultimate Avengers, Iron Man 2 and other movies right now on Netflix and other venues.  I’m gearing up for next week’s premiere of The Avengers, because I’m just a regular Joe, just like you folks!  See ya all at the movie theater next week.
