It seems we may be finally getting out of the slump of terrible movies that studios love releasing in the month of January. Personally, I think only one film will knock it out of the park this weekend, "Hail, Caesar!" coming from the Coen Brothers. It'd take a pretty spectacular failure to bring down George Clooney, Josh Brolin, Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Jonah Hill, and Tilda Swinton. However, we've certainly seen it done before.
Alright so you think the Coen Brothers are overrated, perhaps? (Blasphemy!). Maybe the next one is more your speed. Have you ever watched a Jane Austen adaptation like Sense and Sensibility or Emma and thought to yourself, "Hey I like this and all, but it could really use more zombies!" Well now's your chance. "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" finds beloved literary characters Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy fending off hordes of the undead. Elizabeth is portrayed by Lily James of "Downton Abbey" fame.
Still no? Well, how about 0 of the zombies and 8 times the cheesy romance? That's right, it's time for another Nicholas Sparks movie adaptation. This time around it's "The Choice." From what I can tell, the movie basically has two people falling madly and easily in love, and then the wife goes into a coma and the choice is to keep her alive or pull the plug. Really great stuff.
