I keep telling you, there are no damn monkey's on this train.

It’s Friday, Friday, partying partying YEAH…uhm….sorry. It is Friday so it’s new movie day! Here’s a breakdown on your new choices this week.

Source Code – Jake Gyllenhaal (Jarhead, Zodiac) and Michelle Monaghan (Gone Baby Gone, Trucker) star in director Duncan Jones follow-up to the awesome flick Moon. Previews made this look like a milk toast version of 12 Monkeys but Rotten Tomatoes is clocking it at an 87% positive rating so it may be worth your coin. Plus the always stellar Jeffrey Wright (Basquiat, Cadillac Records) co-stars.

Insidious – “It’s not the house that’s haunted, IT’S YOUR SON”.  Patrick Wilson (Watchmen, Little Children) and Rose Byrne (TV’s Damages, Sunshine) star as a couple whose 10-year-old son falls into a coma and becomes the lightning rod to the spookiness around the family. From the writing and directing team that brought us Saw. Horror flicks aren’t really my thing, but haunted kids are usually pretty fun. Oh, and I have a crush on Rose Byrne.

Hop – British comedian and sworn enemy of Dudley Moore, Russell Brand(Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to The Greek), stars as the voice of the animated rabbit E.B. who dreams of becoming a rock ‘n’ roll drummer instead of following in his father’s paw prints as the Easter Bunny. Then James Marsden (X-Men trilogy, The Box) hits him with his car and they become friends. Highlights of this one look to be The Big Bang Theory’s Kelly Cuoco and the fact that E.B. poops jellybeans.

"I'll save you Michael!"

Super – “SHUT UP CRIME!!” From slightly off kilter writer/director James Gunn (Slither) comes The Office’s Rainn Wilson as a hapless everyman whose wife is having an affair with drug dealer Kevin Bacon (A lot of stuff). Heartbroken and pissed off he becomes the vigilante hero The Crimson Bolt and hits the street to fight crime with his weapon of choice – a plumber’s wrench. An awesome cast including Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Michael Rooker, Andre Royo and recently crowned Geek God – Nathan Fillion are along for the ride. Might not be everybody’s cup of tea but for me it’s the must see flick of the weekend.

Opening in limited release this weekend is In a Better World from acclaimed Danish director Sussane Bier(Things We Lost in The Fire, Brothers), Cat Run in which Paz Vega (Spanglish) stars as hooker caught up in a government conspiracy. Rubber is about a telepathic and homicidal tire named Robert. Yes, you read that right. Finally, for Trust, everyone’s least favorite Friend, David Schwimmer steps behind the camera to direct Clive Owen (The Inside Man, Sin City) and Catherine Keener (40 Year Old Virgin, Being John Malkovich) as parents who struggle with the after effects of the beating of their 14-year-old daughter by her on-line boyfriend.
