It is another lite week in the world of new film releases.
Hitting theaters in wide release is the latest Tim Burton/Johnny Depp colaboration, Dark Shadows. Based on the 70s gothic soap opera of the same name, Burton once again brings his quirkiness to audiences. Unlike his last few releases with Depp (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Dark Shadows does not seem to have the same wide appeal and I personally smell bomb.
Also releasing in theaters, albeit in limited release, is God Bless America. The dark comedy directed by Bobcat Goldthwait is well worth watching if you can find a theater showing it. If not, there is always The Avengers which is sure to hold strong in its second weekend of release, provided you are one of the few that has yet to see the blockbuster.
