Seeing how I work at a movie theatre, and therefore have the inside edge on new movies, I decided to do something at least a little useful to my fellow Wieners and tell you all about what's sucky and what's not sucky in theatres.
This week, the new films are Spy Kids 2, Bloodwork and XXX.
Spy Kids 2: If you liked the first one and are willing to admit that you saw it, you'll probably like it. Also, those with kids will almost definately get dragged to it anyways....so, be forewarned.
Bloodwork: If you liked any of Eastwood's recent ventures, or are just a fan of cerebral detective movies, you'll enjoy Bloodwork. It may get critizied for being a bit slow to start, but once it gets going it reels you in.
XXX: I saw it last night...and it's better than it has any right to be. If you enjoy Bond movies or liked The Fast and The Furious or any of Vin Diesel's other flicks...you'll love XXX. And face it, most people will end up seeing it anyways.

Since you admitted to working in a movie theater, I will admit to seeing Spy Kids. Surely I will soon have to admit to seeing Spy Kids 2, but I just tell my son it isn't coming out until 2004 so I can save 15 bucks and let him rent it.

He hasn't mentioned anything in his Globe columns, which have been running for about a week now. He was on the infamous "Sports Final" show last Sunday night, in which I heard he addressed the situation. I didn't see it, so I can't comment.
