If you are planning to go to the movies this week in Arlington Virginia, here are your choices: 2 action, 1 drama, 1 horror, 1 comedy, and 1 animation. Given your probable demographic, you are not likely to visit the animation flick. Guys will tend toward “action” and ladies will seek “romantic comedy” first. When they don’t find it they will head to “drama.” Given the halloween season, the spirited bunch may want to indulge in “horror”.
There are a bunch of people in the community working in the intelligence profession, military, and CIA who might like Taken 2.
“In Istanbul, retired CIA operative Bryan Mills and his wife are taken hostage by the father of a kidnapper Mills killed while rescuing his daughter.”
Here Comes the Boom doesn’t look like an “action” picture. It must have comedic moments though surely no romance.
“A high school biology teacher looks to become a successful mixed-martial arts fighter in an effort to raise money to prevent extra-curricular activities from being axed at his cash-strapped school.”
Here Comes the Boom
Argo could be an action film though with Ben Affleck, it could just as well be a drama with moments of romance. It is one for the entire national security family.
“As the Iranian revolution reaches a boiling point, a CIA ‘exfiltration’ specialist concocts a risky plan to free six Americans who have found shelter at the home of the Canadian ambassador.”
Sinister is a literal title that seems to want to give away its intent. Tis the season for the supernatural to pay a visit.
“Found footage helps a true-crime novelist realize how and why a family was murdered in his new home, though his discoveries put his entire family in the path of a supernatural entity.”
Perfect Pitch is your date flick. “It’s so adorable,” I can hear her say. Is it about a low-voiced singer who also smokes cigars? Someone let me know.
“Beca, a freshman at Barden University, is cajoled into joining The Bellas, her school’s all-girls singing group. Injecting some much needed energy into their repertoire, The Bellas take on their male rivals in a campus competition.”
I stayed at Hotel Transylvania although I think it was located in Fairmont, West Virginia. The only thing that was animated was indicated by the sounds coming through paper thin walls from the room next door. Don’t they ever sleep?
“Dracula, who operates a high-end resort away from the human world, goes into overprotective mode when a boy discovers the resort and falls for the count’s teen-aged daughter.”
That’s all folks!
