It's a sad weekend for movie-goers across the country when it's a slam-dunk certainty that Madea Goes to Jail is going to easily top the box-office. I admire Tyler Perry's business acumen, but he is truly an awful filmmaker. Then again, is Madea really any worse than Fired Up!? The only way you could get me to see this flick is if it was rated XXX. If you are a fan of Project Runway (which I'm not) then Eleven Minutes is probably required viewing. Chain Link is a hard-core indie flick (one guy writes, directs, edits and produces) so support it if that's you're thing. Delhi-6 looks like it's trying the ride the coattails of Slumdog Millionaire. Good luck!
