I actually want to see Blue Crush, for some strange reason. When I first saw the previews (before Star Wars, I think) I was like, "Oh my god this will suck." But after seeing more previews, it looks like it will rock. Good action, beautiful scenery and women, and maybe even a dash of PLOT~! It doesn't look that bad: at least better than most teen movies. Maybe that's because it reminds me (sort of) of Point Break, which is one of my all-time favorites.

Actually the one I'm waiting for is "Posession" which is opening up here in Chicago today. I'm a drooling Neil LaBute fanboy so even though this looks like something different from him, I'll still be all over it.

Roger Ebert sez:
Blue Crush: *** [of 4] Pluto Nash: not rated My Big Fat Greek Wedding: *** [of 4] Possesion: ***1/2 [of 4] The Good Girl: ***1/2 [of 4]
Of course, compare these reviews to other recent ones: Goldmember: ** Bloodwork: ***1/2 Crocodile Hunter: *** Full Frontal: *1/2 Like Mike: *** Master of Diguise: * Men In Black 2: *1/2 Reign of Fire: * Road to Perdition: *** Signs: **** XXX: ***1/2
Probably the best Barometer of Crappiness for films is RottenTomatoes (www.rottentomatoes.com), which rates positive (fresh) and negative (rotten) reviews...and weighs them. A positivity of 60% or better is a "Fresh" rating. Blue Crush: 62% fresh [48 of 78 reviews] Pluto Nash: 0% fresh [0 of 6 reviews] Possesion: 65% fresh [46 of 71 reviews] Greek Wedding: 75% fresh [53 of 71 reviews] Good Girl: 80% fresh [41 of 51 reviews] There you have it!

Seeing the ads of Blue Crush over and over again on programs I watch (every ad break on WWE Canada shows) I thought this has to be the dumbest movie ever, this looks like something that should have gone straight to video.
But I heard some surprisingly nice reviews of it, and YES the hottie factor is way UP on this flick. It might be worth a look see.
