From Up On Poppy Hill (Kokurikozaka kara)Sundance, Embarcadero
Hayao Miyazaki’s son Goro takes the directing reigns for a Studio Ghibli flick. While not as masterful as his father, Goro delivers a charming tale about puppy love. Set in Japan before the 1964 Olympics, it bottles the optimism of a Japan recovering from the tragedy of WWII. There’s not much to the plot — but it’s gorgeously hand-drawn, and fantastically dreamy. If you had a bad week, this will turn that frown upside down.

Tyler Perry’s TemptationEverywhere
I’m gonna be straight with you — I am almost one-hundred-percent sure that I write a preview for a Tyler Perry movie every other week. This manchise (man-franchise? eh?) is unstoppable! Please someone stop him! There’s just something so Billy Graham about him to me; evangelical and dirty. That said, his movies clean up so maybe that’s what I need to do to make some money — I’ll try anything but hard work TTYL OFF TO FIND THE LORD.

G.I. Joe: RetaliationEverywhere
OMG are you kidding me? I have to write about a G.I. Joe movie the same week I have to write about a Tyler Perry movie? No.

The HostEverywhere
From Twilight author Stephenie Meyer comes another shitty, boring, shiny movie about teenagers acting not at all like teenagers. Good job, girl; I’m glad you’re getting paid. But seriously, don’t you have enough money now? Just get yourself an Infinity pool and swim in your dollar bills, Scrooge McDuck-style.
