Alright!! I am done apologizing. So I missed last week. Sue me. You aren’t my boss. You don't tell me what to do. You don't own me. I am Republibot 1.0. I am unique. And intermittently humorous. And occasionally charming. And stuff. So get off my back. But first, be sure to understand this one simple thing: I’ve not seen these movies, nor have I researched any of them. I am putting my trust in my former geek pop culture osmosis powers to help support my very transparently uninformed opionions. All of the film information presented here, including the plot summary, have been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). This week we are previewing Kick-Ass, Death At A Funeral, and Exit Through the Gift Shop, amongst others.

Now, if it is perfectly okay with you, let’s continue this discussion after the jump.

Just to start off, I would like to apologize for missing last week. I had client in town on Thursday for my regular job and the day went long as well as Friday and by Saturday, I figured it was too late. But we are back this week, and what a week it is!! Well, not really, it is actually kinda mediocre, but it is thought that counts right?

First off, let’s get the small print out of the way: I’ve not seen these movies, nor have I researched any of them. I am putting my trust in my former geek pop culture osmosis powers to help support my very transparently uninformed opionions. All of the film information presented here, including the plot summary, have been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). This week we are previewing Clash of the Titans, The Last Song, and Why Did I Get Married Too, amongst others.

Join us after the jump for more.

So, why is it that Day Light Savings time is in place for more of the year than Standard time? Wouldn’t it make sense at some point to just call Savings time Standard time since it is now the defacto Standard time anyway?

Now the boiler plate: I’ve not seen these movies, nor have I done any research. I trust in the ever faithful power of pop culture osmosis to inform these increasingly insightful opinions about films opening this weekend. All of the film information presented here, including the plot summary, have been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). This week we are previewing The Bounty Hunter, Diary of A Wimpy Kid, and Repo Men, amongst others.

Let’s get this thing over with – after the jump...

It almost felt like spring once or twice this week. It was very frustrating. Now I hear it is expected to snow next week. That is very disheartening. I blame Hollywood. Therefore, it is important to state that: I’ve not seen these movies, nor have I done any real research. I trust in ever faithful power of pop culture osmosis to inform my very clueless opinions. All of the film information presented here, including the plot summary, has been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). This week we are previewing Green Zone, Remember Me, and She’s Out of My League, amongst others.

See you after the jump.

Blergh… Kind of a mixed week this week. On one hand, genre-wise, a good 66% of the releases are near our sweet spot, on the other hand, only 3 movies are opening. But, such is life – you take a little of the good with a bit of the bad and get a tuna casserole. (I have no idea what that means, but it made sense when I wrote it 30 seconds ago.)

Anyway, let’s quickly get our disclaimer out of the way and dig in: I’ve very obviously not seen any of these movies, nor have I invested any effort into researching them. I am trusting in the universal power of pop culture osmosis to inform my admittedly clueless opinions. All of the film information presented here, including the plot summary, has been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). This week we are previewing Alice In Wonderland, Brooklyn’s Finest, and the Secret of Kells.

So, without further ado, grab hold of my hand, close your eyes, take a deep breath and let’s make the jump…

Finally! A half-way decent week for new movies. It isn’t huge, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. I was starting to feel like I was stuck in a Russian love story – one in which passion is demonstrated by not speaking to each other in order to avoid finding out damning information that you could trade to the government in return for the basic necessities of life. Ahhhhh, romance.

Boilerplate disclaimer: I have not seen any of these movies, nor have I gone out of my way to research any of them. I am just passing mindless judgment on them. All of the film information presented here, including the plot summary, has been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). This week we are previewing The Crazies, Cop Out, and Defendor, amongst others.

Very well then – let’s get started right after the jump.

Is February over yet? Honestly, will this winter ever end? Anyway, it looks like a pretty sparse movie going week on the Republibot Weekend Movie Preview. We only have one even remotely interesting movie opening. But first, a quick reminder: I have not seen any of these movies, nor have I researched any of them. The whole point of this weekly feature is for to pass judgment on films I have not yet seen. All of the film information presented here, including the plot summary, has been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). This week we are previewing Shutter Island, The Ghost Writer and a couple of others that I don’t want to scroll down and copy and paste back up here…

So, if you are ready, let’s begin – right after the jump.

So, to get started let's just get this off of my chest right up front; I‘m not really reviewing anything here. Unless stated otherwise I’ve not seen any of the movies in this ‘Preview’. I am really just thoughtlessly passing judgment on films that are scheduled to open this week and that I haven’t researched at all (not even a little bit). All of the film information in these previews, including the plot summary, has been pulled from the Opening This Week page of IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/nowplaying/). In this week’s installment we are taking quick looks at: Did You Hear About the Morgans, Avatar, and Crazy Heart – amongst others…

So... are we good now? Good. Can we get started? Excellent. Follow me to after the jump...
