Episode 2, Oscar Roundup!
The weekend of 2/24/12 sadly didn’t allow for much new movie-going. Partially because one of us (Kari) went to a repeat movie and one of us (Anna) had an Oscar party to plan. We still managed to see one new release and also spent Sunday evening in front of our T.V.s for the 84th Academy Awards.
News & Gossip:
- Ghostbusters III without Bill Murray? (article)
- Beyoncé, Gwyneth, Reece, and Cameron to form a super-group of former one hit wonders with Ryan Murphy (article)
- Hunger Games update: Kari will be going to the Mall of America to attempt to see the cast of The Hunger Games. Click here for details on their epic mall tour!
- Kristen Wiig to star in a new action comedy movie to be written by one of the writers of The Descendants. No link for this one as I summarized the entire article in that one sentence.

In theaters now:
- Wanderlust was the only new release that we were both able to see this week. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and both rated it a 3 out of 5. It was hilarious yet endearing but beware if you have some sort of phobia of seeing old, naked people running you might want to skip this one.
- Update: Kari went to This Means War and concurred with Anna’s opinion and rated it 2 out of 5 vs Anna’s 3 out of 5.
What’s on the horizon:
- The Five-Year Engagement: April 27 (trailer)
- Neighborhood Watch: July 27 (trailer)
- The Avengers: May 4 (trailer)
- Friends with Kids: March 9 (red-band trailer)
