This Weekend at the Movies

posted by on December 8 at 17:00 PM

Opening today: APOCALYPTO! Whatever you think of the man or the movie, that title suggests the best wanna-B movie since Snakes on a Plane. Brendan Kiley’s take (bloodied thumb up!) is here. Behold:


Also in theaters: Blood Diamond (reviewed by Michael Atkinson), plus Driving Lessons (stupid, but okay), The Architect (smart, but bad), The Holiday (stupid, but Kate Winslet), Candy (smack, but Heath Ledger), Mutual Appreciation (Bujalski Buschmalski), Unaccompanied Minors (stupid, but stupid kids)—all reviewed here.


The Stranger’s Film Shorts (including a capsule review of Say I Do, a surprisingly good indie that’s playing only at Lincoln Square in Bellevue, and the heads-up about tonight’s Critics Wrap at the Frye Art Museum).

And our carefully compiled, lovingly updated Movie Times.

If Mr. Gibson fails to put the ball through the ball-court ring with this film, will he be beheaded, or perhaps have his heart ripped out (in honor of the cultural inaccuracies in the film - giving him an mexica rather than a mayan end).
