The Theatrical Trauma of March 8th

As SXSW kicks off Austin, Texas, there's still a plethora of movies arriving in Theaters around the country for non-festival goers like us (and most likely you, too)

The big dog this week is Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful. Not only does it look cool, but it's gotten some good reviews thus fur, and we're stoked to see it. It's been four years since we've had a new Raimi flick in Theaters to enjoy, so we're going to savor this one.

The other "big" release this week, and one that also looks pretty damned good, is Dead Man Down. Any movie that involves Colin Farrell out for bloody revenge is instantly on our radar, because he's great in those types of roles. Add to that the fact that it's directed by the guy who gave us The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (the Swedish original), and that it stars the original Lisbeth Salander, Noomi Rapace, and it's  a no-brainer for us.

We've reviewed both The ABC's of Death (HERE) and The Silence (HERE) , and we definitely recommend a trip to the Theater to see either of them. Or both. One's crazy fun, the other is creepy and bleak, do it depends on your mood, really. Both are in Limited Release, and on VOD.

As for the weeks other two Limited Releases...

We know absolutely nothing about Infected, so, you're on your own with that one.

As far as Hidden in the Woods goes, we've seen it, didn't enjoy it much at all, and can't in good conscious recommend it to anyone else. If you are, however, someone who loves movies that invovle tons of rape, especially that of the incestuous kind, then by all means, knock yourself out.
