The Almighty Goes Up Against the Supernatural

Posted on Friday, June 22nd, 2007 10:32 PM

This weekend, we see a battle between good and evil, between Steve Carell and John Cusack, and between cute elephants and a hotel room with an unpleasant disposition.

Morgan Freeman returns in his role as God from the Jim Carrey movie "Bruce Almighty" from 2003. Bruce is nowhere to be found, but lovable anchorman-and-now-congressman Evan Baxter is the target of God's attention in "Evan Almighty."

On the flip side, John Cusack is trying to get in touch with his deceased daughter and he thinks that a room with a nasty habit of killing people is the way to do it. As much as Samuel L. Jackson tries to talk him out of it, he's intent in checking in to room 1408. This is another horror movie from the mind of Stephen King, and time will tell if this is a hit or a miss, as one can never be quite sure how his stories translate to the big screen.

Also being released today is "A Mighty Heart," the story of Mariane Pearl (played by Angelina Jolie), the wife of reporter Daniel Pearl, as she struggled to find her husband after he had been kidnapped in Pakistan in 2002. After he was murdered, she wrote a memoir as a way of telling her son about his father.

On Wednesday, we get to see if Bruce Willis still has an action movie as John McClane left in him with "Live Free or Die Hard." His sidekick this time around is "I'm a Mac" Justin Long, and the trailer even has McClane uttering the legendary "Yippie Ki Yay..." so we may have a fun movie coming up!

This post is a little late this week as I have been battling some server load issues. We've been quietly adding showtimes for theaters across the country over the past couple of weeks, and we hit our breaking point today. I ended up having to remove showtimes for all of California and Florida so that the site would be more responsive and that means that more code optimization is in my future. My apologies to anyone who was affected by the slowdowns.
