maryann johanson, ruining movies since 1997

my week at the movies: ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon,’ ‘Serious Moonlight,’ ‘Planet 51,’ ‘Brothers,’ ‘The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond’

Oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god! The Twilight Saga: New Moon (opens in the U.S. and the U.K. on November 20). Oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god! *sigh*

I had thought I was going to see Serious Moonlight (now available on demand in the U.S.; opens theatrically in the U.S. on December 4; no U.K. release date has been announced) last week, but a mismatch of the day and date on the invite I received meant I had the screening time wrong. And I wasn’t free to attend the screening on the day it actually was. But I’ll catch up with it this week.

Heh heh. We’re the aliens on Planet 51 (opens in the U.S. on November 20, and in the U.K. on December 4). I hope it’s as amusing at the trailer thinks it is…

Brothers (opens in the U.S. on December 4, and in the U.K. on January 22, 2010) is Jim Sheridan’s new film, and it’s yet another drama about the U.S.’s current misadventures in the Middle East: Tobey Maguire is a soldier, Natalie Portman is his wife, Jake Gyllenhaal is his brother. Apparently it’s something of a triangle. Oo, An Education’s Carey Mulligan is in this, too — cool!

Based on a recently rediscovered original screenplay by Tennessee Williams, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond (opens in the U.S. on December 30; no U.K. release date has been announced) is the tale of an heiress, played by Bryce Dallas Howard, who pisses off her family via the tried-and-true route of messing around with a poor but noble fellow, played by Chris Evans. Just a guess, but I bet it doesn’t end well: Williams was not exactly the cheeriest of storytellers.
