Double Feature: Clash of the Titans & Why Did I Get Married, Too

Each Friday, we will offer up two movies that are scheduled to be released within the accompanying weekend. We know, we know. It’s hard to come across blogs who ever actually get movie talk right. That’s why we won’t say much. A trailer. A paragraph. And boom – all you need to know about what new movies you can take your beautiful object of affection to see this weekend. It's like going to the drive-in movie theater. Remember those? So much fun. Thank us later, not now.

Clash of the Titans

This will garner the “wow, 3D really is the wave of the future” crowd that seems to enjoy going to movies. It’s admittedly hard to root against Liam Neeson, who was terrific in “Love Actually” and the so-much-fun “Taken.” Plus, he lost his wife within the last couple years. How tragic is that? Very, of course, silly. For those who may want to see a simpler, 2D movie that doesn’t feature statues crumbling into the water, though still features Mr. Neeson himself, you may want to give “Chloe” a shot. Really. You may.

Why Did I Get Married, Too

Wow, Tyler Perry made a second on of these, huh? He was likable until his childish, under-the-breath comment at the Academy Awards ceremony regarding how he’ll never be chosen for such an award. How could he ever expect to win when he puts “No More Drama” at the beginning of every trailer for every movie he’s ever done? Above all, though, it’s always good to see Jill Scott get some work in the acting world (why not try and play her songs in your trailers, dude?). Though it’s predictable, there’s an audience for these movies. Still waiting to see if Madea makes an appearance in one of these things, though.


  1. Went to see Clash of the Titans paired with Cop Out at the drive-in.. Not impressed.. It was okay, but nothing great, probabl,y wouldnt watch it again. As for Cop Out.. disappointing for Bruce Willis, not as much action as what we have been accustomed to seeing from him. Not a bad movie, but not as exciting as his Die Hard series etc.

  2. Weird pairing for a drive-in. Love the drive-in, though. Must get to one soon. And everyone knew "Cop Out" would be bad. Tracey Morgan forever gets a pass, though.
