Movie: Something Borrowed (PG-13)
Starring: Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin, John Krasinski, Colin Egglesfield & Steve Howey
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Synopsis: The always the good girl is still single at 30. She has lived in the shadow of her very outgoing and longtime friend. After a night of partying, she wakes up to find she slept with her friend’s fiance, the guy she has been secretly in love with for sometime. What will she do regarding her friendship, as things turn into an affair?
First Thoughts: While this has a fantastic cast, I just don’t get the appeal of a love story that includes lying and cheating. What about you?

Movie: Thor (PG)

First Thoughts: I don’t no much about Thor, but this looks really good and I can’t wait to see this movie on Friday. It seems to be getting pretty good buzz from those that have screened it already. It is also available in 3D and IMAX 3D.
