Opening This Week: He's Just Not That Into Friday The 13th

Only previewing 2 movies of very different genres this week- He's Just Not That Into You and Friday the 13th. Soul Men which I previewed last month, had its release date postponed to this Thursday (April 9). You can check out the preview here. Another film in cinemas this week is Sunshine Barry and the Disco Worms, a German-Swedish animated film.

Lets get started.

Based on a self-help book of the same name, the film follows the stories of 9 different individuals and their romantic escapades. In the middle of it all is Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin) who cannot seem to get a firm grip on men and seeks the help of an advice columnist who doesn't know what he wants out of a relationship.

I'd say watch this if you liked Love Actually. Boasting such an amazing ensemble cast, you gotta catch this movie. Should be a good one.

Five friends - Whitney, Clay, Mike, Jenna and Trent go out to the famous Crystal Lake for the weekend. Before long their weekend starts to get really bad as one by one are hunted down by a machete-wielding, hockey mask-wearing maniac, ever so popularly known as Jason.

According to some critics, this reboot of the Friday the 13th franchise is pretty decent, bringing back classic slasher genre in the way its supposed to be. So it should be good. Plus, it was produced by Transformers director, Michael Bay. Definitely not a film to watch with the kids. Bring the girlfriend though.
