There's about 5 movies coming out this weekend, 4 of which nobody has ever heard of, and only 1 that anybody cares about. It's time for Pre-Emptive Strike Thursday!


Title: Watchmen.

Pre-Thoughts: I read the graphic novel and enjoyed it. I know of the altered ending and don't really care (in respect to the climax). The only thing I'm not liking is that there are rumors that the final scene in the book is not in the movie, which is insane, because that's the scene that makes the entire story worth it. Not to mention it's one of the greatest endings ever. But everything else is supposed to be dead-on with the graphic novel (except for the Black Freighter stuff, which is going to be added in with a Director's Cut DVD). I'm pretty excited. Though the rating really depends on if they cut that final scene or not. Going on the assumption that they did (grumble grumble), I am prescoring it as such.

A Keanu 'Whoa'

Title: The Horsemen.

Pre-Thoughts: Never heard of it.

Pre-Score: Can't score it.

Title: 12.

Pre-Thoughts: Okay, so I have heard of this one. This is the remake of 12 Angry Men that was up for a Foreign Film Oscar a year ago. Why it's just getting released now, who knows. But with a slew of poor reviews (and the fact that it isn't being released here), I just don't care.

Pre-Score: Can't score it.

Title: Phoebe in Wonderland.

Pre-Thoughts: Again, I had heard of this one once, not too long ago, but haven't watched the trailer or anything, so I can't say much.

Pre-Score: Can't score it.

Title: Tokyo!

Pre-Thoughts: Never heard of it.

Pre-Score: Can't score it.

  1. I have heard the same about the ending of the Watchmen, but from fans who have read and seen it they say it doesn't ruin the movie, if anything enhances it and makes you question things further. Already have my tickets and night planned around it.
