in New Movies This Friday

This week, there are five new movies opening. There are four opening everywhere and one in limited release.

Opening Nationwide on Friday, February 1st:

Movie: The Eye (PG-13)
Starring: Jessica Alba, Alessandro Nivola, Parker Posey & Rade Serbedzija
Genre: Thriller
Synopsis: A concert violinist that has spent most of her life in blindness gets a double corneal transplant to repair her sight. Her doctor and sister are there to help her with the transition and learning to see again, but she starts seeing things that nobody else can see. Can she see the future? Is she seeing into an alternate universe? Well, that’s what she wants to know.
First Thoughts: I see a potentially dismal movie, but it’s got to be better than Good Luck Chuck. Right?

Movie: Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert in Disney Digital 3D
Starring: Miley Cyrus & Jonas Brothers
Genre: Concert
Synopsis: The sold out concert tour hits the big screen for one week.
First Thoughts: The place to be for Hannah Montana fans.

Movie: Over Her Dead Body (PG-13)
Starring: Eva Longoria, Paul Rudd & Lake Bell
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Synopsis: A man devastated over the death of his fiancée on their wedding day, is pushed by his sister to see a psychic. He is very skeptical of her abilities, but he starts to fall for her and her for him. Yet, his dead wife to be has not left completely, as her ghost is haunting the psychic with the goal of keeping the two apart.
First Thoughts: Super Bowl weekend must be the week when the really crappy stuff is released, as this looks and sounds terrible. When there isn’t even a laugh to be found in the trailer that is not a good sign. It does have a great looking cast.

Movie: Strange Wilderness (R) (Read Review)
Starring: Steve Zahn, Allen Covert, Jonah Hill, Kevin Heffernan & Ashley Scott
Genre: Comedy
Synopsis: The popular host of a top wildlife TV show dies and his son takes over the show. Unfortunately, he is a bumbling, blathering, imbecile that thinks he is as talented as his father. He throws in useless bits of knowledge that don’t make sense or are completely made up and the show starts sinking in the ratings. His filming partner happens upon a map to what is supposed to be the cave of Bigfoot. He decides to take his crew on the hunt of the elusive beast in Central America and disaster after disaster befalls them.
First Thoughts: Well, Meet the Spartans did well last week, maybe this will too. This doesn’t look that good either, but at least I laughed a couple of times during the trailer. Hopefully, those aren’t the only ones to be found in the movie.

Movies in Limited Release:

  • Caramel – A foreign ensemble drama about a group of five women that regularly meet at a beauty salon in Beirut. While there, their conversations are intimate and open, as they discuss men, sex and motherhood.

For New Movie Friday there are four new movies this week to choose from. They are The Eye, Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert in Disney Digital 3D, Over Her Dead Body and Strange Wilderness. What new movie will you be heading out to see this week?
