I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to having some family movies back in theaters. We’ve got ‘Gnomeo & Juliet’ next week, and that looks pretty fun.
‘Sanctum 3D’ – I’ve been looking forward to this ever since I heard about it. James Cameron directs this thriller about an underwater cave diving team who run into a few problems during an expedition to the unexplored and least accessible cave system in the world.
You might not recognize a lot of the actors, although Ioan Gruffudd from the British ‘Horatio Hornblower’ series is one of the stars.
Rated R for language, some violence and disturbing images; 109 minutes; official site.
‘The Roommate’ – It’s everyone’s worst nightmare. You go away to college, get settled in your classes, and discover that your roommate is a psycho killer. Such is the case when Sara (Minka Kelly) moves in with Rebecca (Leighton Meester), who decides she wants the girl all to herself.
I must admit I just have no desire to see this movie, partly because it’s been done so many times before. But the cast is interesting — Frances Fisher, Cam Gigandet, Aly Michalka, Billy Zane, Nina Dobrev and Katerina Graham. ‘The Vampire Diaries’ fans will recognize those last two from the hit CW show.
Rated PG-13 for violence and menace, sexual content, some language and teen partying; 93 minutes; official site.
