2 new movies in theaters today, March 26 and they both get really good reviews. Definitely worth mentioning, since it's kind of unusual that everyone's in agreement this week. I guess they both fall into the category of light entertainment - easy to like!
Here's the schedule for movies at the Coral Ridge Mall Movie Theatre in Coralville and the Sycamore Mall Cinema in Iowa City.
The first new movie is quite clearly going to be a runaway success. How to Train Your Dragon comes from the Dreamworks studio. Need I say more? And what's not to like about a reluctant hero named Hiccup? That's enough for me right there... And I haven't even gotten to the part where you find out it's about vikings and dragons yet. Our reluctant hero is not quite in sync with the rest of his tribe and finds his beliefs up-ended when he meets up with a dragon. This was the kind of movie I used to love taking my children to see, on the pretext I was doing them a favor, when all the while I was loving it!
The other new movie has the great title Hot Tub Time Machine. Starring John Cusack it's about three friends dissatisfied with their lives who get shipped back in time in their hot tub for a do-over. Like I said, light entertainment - Just what the doctor ordered.
That's it for movies. Moving onto live entertainment... The Mill has another full weekend lined up as usual. Tonight folk rock lovers will enjoy The Fruit Bats. Saturday it's the Burlington Street Bluegrass Band and Sunday it's Ol' Thrashers Reunion 3 - The third year in a row where members of the Iowa City Punk scene get together to raise funds for United Action for Youth.
