It's a good weekend for movie fans as a slew of new releases hit theaters for the first time or expand this weekend. For genre fans, there's the gory 30 Days of Night and for drama lovers, there's Rendition and Ben Affleck's directorial debut, Gone Baby Gone.
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
30 Days of Night
"This vampire movie with a novel twist makes for a refreshing anomaly: a horror flick that's actually scary." [Full Review]
Gone Baby Gone
"A double dose of Affleck in a Boston-set (where else?) investigatory drama that establishes a solid second career beachhead for older brother Ben." [Full Review]
"Critics are lukewarm on this one, but what will the standard movie-goer think?" [Full Review]
"This drama about intrigue and loss in the suburbs is a little too bitter a pill for even me to swallow." [Full Review]
Wristcutters: A Love Story
"An occasionally clever, moderately amusing black comedy in the vein of Heathers." [Full Review]
Also opening: Things We Lost in the Fire, The Ten Commandments, Paranormal Hour and The Comebacks.
