Horrors and Hollywood Heroes

Following a week of horror and a horrifying-in-their-own-way family, hero Hugh Jackman has arrived, determined to take no “Prisoners” in his search for justice and a top box office spot. Are moviegoers’ eyes still glued to the “Insidious Chapter 2” possessed to put down? Will “The Family” featuring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, not to mention a stray Miller or two prevail? “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” spent decades serving civil sorts. Are civil rights sagas a thing of the (movie) past? When will the light of day overshadow “Riddick’s” Pitch Black night?
Perhaps the movie aficionados among us looking for an entertaining change will be shouting “Thanks for Sharing” the gory details of your addictions. Proving there’s something for everyone in the land of big-screen make believe, they may be bellowing “Enough Said” about 12-step programs, we prefer romantic comedies of the bittersweet (albeit limited release) kind. Furthermore, a trip to “Parkland” to cure what ails us may be in order, as the JFK assassination finds its stage and tells another story 50 years later.
Whatever your preference this weekend, be it killings, kidnapping or comedy, assassination or annihilation, heroes or horrors, your local multiplex is THE place to cure your post-summer entertainment blues.
From seaside days to starry nights, may your week come with more humor than horror, with greater cures than curses…
