Coming Soon to a Theater Near You

Sadly, this is not the best week for family-friendly films.  Here's what we've got:

Rated PG-13
Starring Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, and Liam Neeson

A fleet of ships is forced to do battle with an armada of unknown origins in order to discover and thwart their destructive goals. (IMdB)

Currently, it is receiving a 6.3 out of ten rating from critics and users on IMdB. The trailer doesn't excite me. I'm not likely to see this one.  If any Flixy Mom readers see Battleship and would like to give their opinion in a review, feel free to post it here!  It's greatly appreciated.

Now, the good news is, there are some hotly anticipated films about to release in the next couple of weeks!


They are:

That's right!  Will and Tommy Lee are back in 

Men in Black 3
Rated PG-13
This one also stars Josh Brolin as a young Agent K (TL Jones)
Opens in theaters Friday, May 25th

And if that wasn't cool enough, there is also this one:

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted
Rated PG
Starring the usual funny zoo crew: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Schwimmer
Opening in theaters on Friday, June 8th

It is often my experience that the entertainment value of sequels starts to dwindle somewhere around #2, but Madagascar 2, in my opinion, was just as good, if not better than the first, and the trailers for this third installment look promising.  Fingers crossed.

Well, that's it for the next couple of weeks anyway in terms of movies to theaters.  In the meantime, we will be reviewing some fun (or not so fun?) DVD releases for you.  Tomorrow, join us for a review of Real Steel.
