Hitting the theaters this weekend.

Reaching back to the good old days of 2005, a small independent film starring Ugly Betty's America Ferrara called How the Garcia Girls Spent Their Summer is being re-released. It is described as similar to her debut, Real Women Have Curves, and is getting a limited release as many smaller films tend toward. This might be my pick for the week's new releases as nothing else is really exciting me.
Narnia's exploration continues with Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian storms into theaters to knock Iron Man out of the top box office slot. The first installment was a solid film and was as good as i remember the book being. Granted, i don't remember much of the book being that i read it around the age of six. But i never read the other books in the series, so the sequel film doesn't have the nostalgia factor for me. It does seem to boast more action and less fantasy than Wardrobe, so it might have promise. If i were six again. Which i'm not.
The only other movie i know of hitting the big screen this week is another limited-release, indie flick called Reprise. European arthouse fare about two friends who want to be writers. From the descriptions, does not sound that thrilling. However, some of the reviews are lauding it's ability to push and pull it's audience emotionally from one extreme to another. So the positive reviews are making me interested, even though i rarely agree with real film critics.
Maybe it's a week to go see something that's been out for a while. Forgetting Sarah Marshall, here i come...
