|Home: BigScreen Journal - A Shortage of New Releases, But No Shortage of Big Releases|
We're a little short on new releases this weekend, but that's primarily because of the holiday that landed right in the middle of this week. Both "Transformers" and "License to Wed" were released on Tuesday, leaving only "Joshua" to be released in a limited number of theaters today.
Next week, of course, is reason for muggles and wizards alike to rejoice as "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" is released in theaters. Then, after they've seen the movie six or seven times, they have the release of the final book "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" on July 21st.
Will the book's release actually dim attendance of the movie, while everyone is devouring the printed words? (our Featured Movie Critic seems to think so) I know a Harry Potter fan that isn't really all that much a fan of the movies (she still hasn't seen all of "Goblet of Fire" yet), but you can be sure that the book was ordered long ago with guaranteed delivery on the day of release. She won't see the movie right away, but she's already setting aside time for reading the book.
Personally, I'm more looking forward to the release of "The Bourne Identity" on HD DVD on July 24th. It's a great movie, and there's a double feature of the already-released-on-HD-DVD sequel "The Bourne Supremacy" in my future! That will be well-timed with the theatrical release of "The Bourne Ultimatum" on August 3rd...
I had the chance to see "Live Free or Die Hard" this past week, and I'll be posting my Reader Review of the movie soon. While it wasn't as good as its predecessors, I thought it was better than the other sequels I've seen this summer. That reminds me that I need to write a review for "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" one of these days!
