Movie Thoughts 4-12-2012

42 is good.  Harrison Ford is good as Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodger executive who selected Jackie Robinson to integrate major league baseball.  Chadwick Boseman is good as Jackie Robinson.    I am not sure if I have seen him in another movie.  Sportscaster and baseball fan Bob Costas liked it.

Scary Movie 5 was not screened for critics.  I think this is a sign the movie could be pretty bad.   I like to say it is hard to make a bad promo but the promos for this film are bad.  Do studios really think audiences still like this kind of movie?

SCARY MOVIE 5 is so bad that the two best performances in the film come from Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, and they’re both out of the movie within five minutes. I’m not saying they’re good in it. They’re awful. It just so happens their level of awfulness is slightly above anyone else unfortunate enough to be part of the cast” from the review on

I guess I won’t be surprised if people go to see this movie.
