THE WEEKEND EXPERIENCE - MOVIES OPENING 1/16

PICK OF THE WEEK

Defiance James Bond goes Jewish in his latest flick. Four Jewish brothers living in Nazi occupied Poland escape into the forest where they join up with Russian resistance fighters in battling the Nazis. Throughout the war they built a village inside the forest and saved the lives of more than 1200 other Jews. Based on a true story. Critics are saying that it's a pretty good movie - a bold, uneasy mix of romance, political debate and vigorous action. THE SCARY MOVIE OF THE WEEK

My Bloody Valentine 3D This is for all you Valentines day haters out there. Ten years ago, a tragedy changed the town of Harmony forever. Tom Hanniger, an inexperienced coal miner, caused an accident in the tunnels that trapped and killed five men and sent the only survivor, Harry Warden, into a permanent coma. Then, exactly one year later, on Valentine's Day, Harry Warden woke up--and brutally murdered twenty-two people with a pickaxe before being killed. Ten years later, Tom Hanniger returns to Harmony on Valentine's Day, still haunted by the deaths he caused. Struggling to make amends with his past, he grapples with unresolved feelings for his ex-girlfriend Sarah, who is now married to his best friend Axel, the town sheriff. But tonight, after years of peace, something from Harmony's dark past has returned. Wearing a miner's mask and armed with a pickaxe, an unstoppable killer is on the loose. And as his footsteps come ever closer, Tom, Sarah and Axel realize in terror it just might be Harry Warden who's come back to claim them. Critics are saying that this film is pretty good and will make you squeal like a teenage girl. THE MOVIE TO WATCH IF YOU'RE FEELING GANGSTA

Notorious BIg Poppa is getting mixed reviews, but I'd give it a shot. In just a few short years, Notorious B.I.G. rose from the streets of Brooklyn to become one of the most influential hip hop artists of all time. B.I.G. was a gifted storyteller; his narratives about violent life on the streets were told with a gritty, objective realism that won him enormous respect and credibility. Angela Bassett plays Big Poppa's mama. check movie showtimes

  • They all look pretty enticing - Think I gotta go with the 3D job first though - sneak some peppy schnapps or somethin' in the 'ol jacket and have a grand time. I'm totally gonna keep those glasses too - I don't care what you say.
  • I saw the screener for Defiance It was GREAT...
  • It was all a dream. I used to read Word Up! magazine .. !

    Notorious and Tupac: Resurrection are films I would make my kids watch as a part of their music history lessons.
