So The Rock has to get the Fast and Furious gang together to help him stop this guy who’s stealing… I don’t know, something… but his crew is a bunch of high stakes drivers so The Rock needs Toretto and his crew to help, and Letty is back, but she’s with the bad guys now so they want to save her, and Dom has to like talk her out of it “We’re family” he tells her, but she doesn’t listen at first cause she has amnesia and there’s all kinds of car chases and one of them has a TANK involved and then another time they’re on a runway racing a plane, and Vin Diesel gives this guy a flying headbutt and then he and the Rock are fighting dudes together while Paul Walker and everyone are like racing around underneath the plane engines…
Sylvester Stallone returns to B-Movie badassery with “Bullet to the Head”, a straight forward action flick about a hit man who teams up with a cop in order to track down the clients who double crossed him and killed his partner.
It’s a decent use of your entertainment dollar, especially if you’re a fan of 80s action films, where the lone hero has to shoot his way through a string of underlings in order to get to the big baddie.
Ok, boys and girls. The Holiday Season is over… and the Spring Season, full of mini Blockbusters, is still months away.
Between now and then lies Hollywood’s dumping ground. The Hollywood fields lie fallow in the winter, bearing little quality product. It’s the two months of the year we need to “Get through”. While January typically offers some limited releases from the prior year going wide, there’s typically little else to get excited over.
Will this year be different? Are there any movies to get excited about these next two months? Let’s take a look at the release slate and see what we’ve got!
