Weekend Theater Picks: Mar. 14, 2008

The Pick.

Doomsday

Why I picked it.

A Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Escape from New York clone with a hot chick and a virus thrown in. It looks empty and fun like AvP:R, Transformers, et cetera. It also has the virtue of being the only cool action flick coming out this weekend. Plus Neil Marshall of The Descent is helming it. There is another action flick coming out this weekend but its even more derivative than Doomsday. I don’t know if Doomsday will be Number One this weekend but it will definitely be in the top six.

  • Interesting pick. I want to see it too along with Horton. Never Back Down and Sleepwalking doesn’t appeal to me.

  • Seems everyone thought the film looked derivative though. It opened at seventh place this weekend. Horton got number one. Not surprising since its a Dr. Seuss children’s movie
