More after the jump:
Drag Me to Hell: Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic, IMDB - My pick for the weekend: It's a horror homecoming and I feel sentimental; Sam Raimi is one of the masters of the horror-comedy, and unlike a Roger Corman or Stuart Gordon, the emphasis is always on the horror. It also happens to be one of the best reviewed horror films since The Sixth Sense.
Not Sool (Daytime Drinking): Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB - limited: There is barely any information on this film. It's a South Korean film with the following IMDB plot description: "Hyuk-Jin has just broken up with his girlfriend and decides to take a trip to Jeongseon in the province of Gangwon-do. The next day, his friends are too hung over to get up, so Hyuk-Jin makes his way to his destination alone. A trip of opportunity takes a cruel and unexpected turn as misunderstanding and crossed paths occur over and over again. "
Eid milad Laila (Laila's Birthday): Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB - limited: Again, another film with little information. From IMDB: "Abu Laila used to be a judge, but because the government doesn't have the means to renew his assignment he is forced to be a taxi driver. On the day his daughter Laila becomes seven years old his wife insists that he'll be at home early and bring her a present and a cake. Abu Laila's has nothing else on his mind then completing this mission. But the daily life in Palestine has other plans."
The Maiden Heist: Rotten Tomatoes, IMDB - limited: Is Up that big a threat that all the tiny studios are literally dumping their small pictures this weekend to avoid the chance of pushing them to success. IMDB: "A comedy centered on three museum security guards who devise a plan to steal back the artworks to which they have become attached after they are transferred to another museum."
This one doesn't even have a trailer and it stars Morgan Freeman. WTF?
I'm not going to link to all the also-rans this week. It's depressing. There are five more films getting limited releases this week against Up. I don't get it. Rotten Tomatoes has the full run-down.
