These days, it's difficult to complain about the wide array of genres available in movie theaters, even though the actual movies taking up spots in those genres may be of variable quality. While I'll leave it up to each reader to decide where this week's releases land on the quality scale, here's a brief rundown of the genres represented.
Still going strong are the Drama "The Brave One" and the Western "3:10 to Yuma." They were #1 and #2 respectively in the box office last weekend. The latter still commands the highest number of theaters, which probably means a few more Westerns have been sent through the approval process in the last couple of weeks.
New this week is the Action/Adventure movie "Resident Evil: Extinction," the third installment of the series based on the popular video game. This time, our hero lands in Las Vegas, but the fountains at the
Mirage Bellagio are no longer dancing to the music. She's forced to battle the effects of a virus which threatens the human race with extinction.
Looking for something a little lighter? How about Dane Cook and Jessica Alba in the Romantic Comedy "Good Luck Chuck?" The story is about a guy suffering from a curse placed on him in his youth where he can start a relationship with a woman but never fall in love. Worse yet, women have found that they find true love, right after sleeping with him -- with the next guy they meet, which makes him a bit of a good luck charm.
Jessica Alba plays an accident prone penguin handler who just might need some his luck, if not just to keep from running into things. As he falls for her, Chuck has to figure out how to deal with his long-running curse before he loses her for good.
Going even lighter, we have "Sydney White," starring Amanda Bynes in a combination of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" and "Revenge of the Nerds." Bynes plays a college freshman who ditches her sorority sisters and takes up residence with seven dorky outcasts.
