This weekend, you can expect a trip into that great movie-style “Oblivion” thanks to our hero Tom Cruise, whose latest assignment has him extracting Earth’s residual resources as he searches for the brilliant remains of countless Hollywood dreams gone horribly wrong. Fortunately, he’ll have Morgan Freeman along to help him achieve his lofty goal. Remaining on earthly soil, “The Lords of Salem” are praying to the movie gods, hoping for the gift of box-office success as they battle demons from the past seeking revenge on the residents of Salem, Massachusetts. More than likely, they’ll run into G.I. Joe, who’s always seeking revenge of someone! Depending on how far back in time they flash back, they may encounter the “Evil Dead,” who have been running amok since 1981 in spite of their mortal status. Traveling back to prehistoric times, they can trade lively stories with “The Croods,” who are traveling their own ancient path to the modern world. Then there are the yet-to-be extinct dinosaurs from “Jurassic Park,” taking a more scenic “3D” theme-park tour unfounded in their 1993 heyday. Being lovers of all things past, they’ll have no problem finding “42” reasons to make time for a baseball biopic.
Whether turning back the hands of time or taking a step forward to modern moments, movie theaters are sporting the most vivid colors these docile, baseball-loving spring days! What’s a movie lover to do but enjoy the ride (no matter what decade it is occurring!)
