Winter Movie Season: February 2010

filmreel

The big movie hits in February can be found the weekend of Valentine’s Day. In terms of the month, the themes of the month are action/thriller, romance, and fantasy.

Opening the first weekend of the month is “Dear John” which is the latest Nicholas Sparks adaptation starring Amanda Segfried (“Mamma Mia”) and Channing Tatum (“G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra”). Two words: Tear Jerker. “From Paris with Love” stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers and John Travolta in what looks to be a hit or miss movie.

In my opinion the big hits of the month will be released during Valentine’s Day weekend. Those releases include “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief” based on the best-selling series by Rick Riordan, “The Wolfman”, and “Valentine’s Day” which I like to call the Gary Marshall and ABC all-star cast.

Later in the month “Shutter Island” starring Leonardo DiCaprio will be released. The psychological thriller was directed by Academy Award winner Martin Scorsese. For a bit of comedic relief, Kevin Smith’s latest film “Cop Out” will be released at the end of the month.

67th Annual Golden Globe Award Winners

The Golden Globe Awards has in the past been very favorable to freshman nominees. The 67th Golden Globe Awards was no different. Also it was a night of shameless promotion, but what was funny is that the stars didn’t hide nor deny that they were shamelessly promoting their upcoming projects. Freshman drama “Glee” took home the Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Comedy, and James Cameron won for Best Director for “Avatar” which certainly gave an indication to which film was going to win Best Picture.
