Monsters verses Heroes

“Heroes need monsters to establish their heroic credentials. You need something scary to overcome.” Margaret Atwood
Last weekend, moviegoers took the “Ride Along” to comedy, cruising alongside Hollywood Boulevard and beyond studio executives expectations. The “Lone Survivor” was anything but lonely, as the Navy seal saved movie lovers from lackluster entertainment. Riding shotgun was “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” who was, ironically, nearly lost in the glare omitting from his competitions’ limelight. Perhaps he’ll find a sunnier spot this weekend in movie land. This weekend, “I, Frankenstein” is hoping for a monstrous opening weekend, thanks to us, the movie-going public, but can he overcome the success of his worthy contenders? The folks flocking to the “Devil’s Due” clearly do not scare easily; are they due a more favorable box office spot? “The Nut Job” knocked a bit of the frosty stuffing from the “Frozen” field, charming the child within while marking a wacky territory to call his own. Will kooky continue to clash with the cool kids?
This weekend is loaded with lethal (and loving) entertainment. We’ll meet Cops and robbers, demons with deadly intent, survivors taking on shadows in the night, and naturally, plenty of animated delights!
From seaside days to starry nights, may your weekend be filled with cinematic sensations sure to conquer monsters and mediocre entertainment…
