Brian the Movie Guy: 'GI Joe: Retaliation' is surprisingly not terrible

Opening Today:

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION(B-) Smells like The Rock is cookin' up some fairly decent, popcorn fun. Read the full review.

THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES(A-) Stressful, yet powerful cinema. Check out why it's only an A- here.

Also opening this week:

The author of the Twilight Saga brings us an epic extra-terrestrial love story called THE HOST that's actually receiving worse reviews than any of the Twilight films. If you ever read my review of THE HOST please punch me in the mouth because 'from the author of the Twilight Saga' is reason enough for me to never even see THE HOST. Oh yeah, Tyler Perry has a movie out this weekend called TYLER PERRY'S TEMPTATION - punch me twice if you ever read my review for this one as well.

Now available on DVD/Bluray:
Watch Spielberg's LINCOLN for the first time to experience a remarkably detailed, intricately composed and intimately structured story. Watch it a second time if you're in need of a three-hour nap.

Have a great weekend!
