There is one movie that everyone should see this weekend and that movie is Adventureland. Alternately funny and touching, it is another rousing success from director Greg Mottola (LAist review here). That said, there is another movie that probably everyone will actually see and that is Fast & Furious. I admit it -- I liked the first title in this series. It had a Point Break-ish quality to it. But is this latest reboot really necessary? Pass.

Alien Trespass looks like a Troma movie with a slightly bigger budget. That is not a compliment. If I'm not at Adventureland this weekend, I'm probably either at Bart Got a Room (dork looks for prom date -- sorry, no nudity!), Sugar (aspiring Dominican kid pitches in the minor leagues) or Paris 36 (a period piece about a French theater just before World War Two -- ooo, fun!)
