Knight and Day

This Week in DVD

This week sees a first in the history of the column… at least I think it’s a first. Not only are there no new DVDs worth buying this week, but there are also none worth avoiding. It’s an all rental week here at the West Coast offices of FSR! That may be because this is a fairly light week of releases in general which is odd considering the proximity to Christmas, but just because the pickings are slim doesn’t mean they’re not worth watching. The DVD pick of the week is the surprisingly funny, dirty, and sweet romantic comedy Going the Distance. You shamefully missed in theaters… but now have a second chance to watch in the comfort of your own home and in the arms of someone you love to play with naked. Also out this week? Part three of the emotionally vacant Twilight series, Eclipse! Nicolas Cage playing with his wand in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice! Tom Cruise in Knight and Day, the better than expected action comedy with worse than expected CGI! Two documentaries about Walt Disney that both avoid the subject of cryogenics! And more!

This Week in Blu-ray

As we gather for our first post-Black Friday, post-Cyber Monday, post-Turkducken day edition of This Week in Blu-ray, it isn’t very hard to see that most studios decided to take a bye week. Universal saw fit to release two Ben Stiller comedies, and not very well. Disney is bringing Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel to the party, as willy wizards surrounded by some of the more interesting effects work we’ve seen all year. They also took time to bring a truly beautiful animated musical (or two) to Blu-ray for the first time. Also, Rob Hunter stops by to recommend a movie with “kill” in the title, which is never a bad thing. All things considered, it may not be the most robust week of Blu-ray releases, but there are certainly some interesting twists and turns.

This week, on a very special Reject Radio, Cinematical writers John Gholson and Will Goss drop by to discuss the finer points of jam bands becoming screenwriters, Daniel Day-Lewis losing his shit, and Peter Jackson’s incredible weight loss secrets. Plus, we make time to review Knight and Day and Grown Ups. Sorry about that.

Toy Story 3

Sometimes things just turn out the way you might expect them to. It was a no-brainer going into this weekend that Pixar and Toy Story 3 would come out on top for the second weekend in a row. It was also safe betting that Adam Sandler and his crew of Grown Ups would beat out a second place spot for itself and that Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz would show.

Last night, my fiancee and I were walking into a screening of Grown Ups when we were bombarded by what might be the largest advertising lobby cutout we’ve ever seen. It was for The Expendables, and it’s awe-inspiring with slightly-larger-than-life cardboard version of Stallone, Li, Statham, Rourke, Willis, Lundgren, and Austin. Seven big men all towering over and silently inviting us to come see them kick ass.

Fat Guys at the Movies

Kevin and Neil meet up again in the Magical Studio in the Sky to talk about their lackluster thoughts on this week’s new movies… and boobs. They also contemplate why movies aren’t making as much money this summer and what are the best sandwiches they have ever had.

June Havens (Cameron Diaz) is trying to make it back home to Boston when she bumps into Roy Miller (Tom Cruise), a secret agent who has gone rogue with something very important to the federal government. As much as he tries to avoid her becoming a part of the game, she ends up either having to be glued to his side or taken out by some very bad men. The two will have to secure a young inventor (Paul Dano) and expose or kill the true rogue agent before it’s too late.

After a record-breaking opening weekend, it’s time to see how much Toy Story 3 can pull in in its second weekend out. It has Adam Sandler and that Tom Cruise guy to worry about, so I think it’s pretty safe.

With the release of the nearly dismissible thriller comedy Killers (the one with Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl) coming up this Friday and Lionsgate not screening it for critics, bloggers or the like, we need something to talk about. So we’re talking a film with a very similar premise — James Mangold’s Knight and Day.

This isn’t what I expected. I’m not a Tom Cruise hater, and in fact I generally like the man’s movies, but I was convinced Knight and Day was going to suck from the moment it was announced. Then I watched this new trailer.

How about a new column here at FSR? Off the cuff and ready to go is the simply named This Week in Movie Posters, in which we discuss pottery, naturally.

If you weren’t sure what to make of the oft-title shifting movie Knight and Day, a comedy (I think) about a sociopathic super spy played by Tom Cruise and some random woman that he’s picked up along his path of secret agent violence, played by Cameron Diaz, you’re really in for a treat with this first trailer.
