Sure the reviews haven't exactly been stellar, but I'm really looking forward to The Wolfman. Benicio + Tony + Emily + (most importantly) Rick Baker = my ass in the seat opening weekend! Thank God it is rated R for "bloody horror violence and gore." I'm sick and tired of these PG-13 horror flicks. Some might say that Valentine's Day is a cynical attempt to cash in on an all-star cast even though the underlying film is, in fact, awful. Oh wait, I would be saying that. Please avoid this film, America!

It looks like a low-budget Harry Potter knock-off, but I'll give Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief props for going with such an unwieldy title and weird premise. I'm not seeing I'll go and see it, but it looks like a perfect flick for 13 year-old kids. My Name Is Khan looks a little too feel-good for my taste (a young man afflicted with Asberger's syndrome is mistaken by authorities for a terrorist). The fact that the film's synopsis says the protagonist, "begins a journey to meet US President Obama to clear his name" really worries me.
