Double Feature: A Nightmare On Elm Street & Furry Vengeance

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.

A Nightmare On Elm Street

So…why? Is it because Michael Bay’s disillusioned success he gained from the awful “Transformers” movies? Is it because the summer needed a remake of a classic horror film to hold people over until the next “Saw” comes out? Or is it because someone wants to get across the point that studies show humans should definitely not sleep nearly as much as they do? Who knows. Regardless, without a blockbuster name attached (and please, don’t sell us Michael Bay – a director – as a blockbuster name), it’s hard to get excited for such a thing. Why spend two hours watching people die when you can spend two hours taking a walk during the first weekend in May? Exactly. Go to bed, Freddy.

Furry Vengeance

How many movies is Ken Jeong going to be in? Honestly. Between “Community” and the 40,000 movies he’s in each week, how does he do it? Anyways, Brendan Fraser stars in what looks to be a comedy centering around how much corporate America shouldn’t mess with Mother Nature. Now, we know that sounds awfully enticing, but considering its original release date was set for earlier in April, it doesn’t appear many people believe in the film’s staying power. If you really want to make a difference while preserving this planet, you may be better served adopting a pet. Ignorant advice: Make sure you ride as far away as you can get from this movie.
