Double Feature: The Losers & The Back-Up Plan

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.

The Losers

“I’m like the black MacGyver. BlackGyver.” That’s funny. And that’s about it. Not a chance in the world I will ever see this movie. Seemingly based on some type of comic book-related something, I am told this features some dude who was also in “Watchmen” (another movie I’ll never see), and a lady from “Death At A Funeral” (still can’t wait to see). What does this all add up to? Well, one big fat nothing. It’s hard not to think this will be in and out of theaters in two weeks, but hey, the comic book-crowd never likes to be slighted, so considering how the general public flocks to these things like idiotic geese, we’ll probably hear how it finished at No. 1 over the weekend. But what do we know? We’re just bloggers.

The Back-Up Plan

Saw the trailer for this when making a trip to see “Valentine’s Day” on Valentine’s Day weekend with a dude and a lesbian. A lot of wine was drunk that night. Anyways, the premise seems sort of neat, right? And by neat, we mean quirky, different, interesting and fun. And by quirky, different, interesting and fun, we mean mildly quirky, different, interesting and fun. Hey, what can I say? Romantic comedies were made for someone like me. Can’t get enough of them. Downside? Jennifer Lopez. Honestly. When’s this going to stop? Not to judge (because no blogger has ever done that), but it just doesn’t seem as though she’s been in a good movie…like, ever. So, while a tad bit appealing, it’s safe to say this is worth giving a miss. Then again, may we remind you: What do we know?
