Buffalo's This Week in Movies, September 15th, 2009: Sorority Row; 9; I Can Do Bad

Posted: Sep 15, 2009

The original title of the screenplay was “Seven Sisters,” which I like better, but I suppose it wasn’t creepy sounding enough. Rumer Willis, daughter of action star Bruce Willis and hottie cradle robber Demi Moore stars in this story of death and, well, more death.

The sorority sisters punk this dude because he has been cheating on his girl. She pretends to upchuck and die during sex, after he thinks he has given her the date rape drug, which was actually a placebo. He is freaking out and the sisters tell him they need to dispose of the body and agree never to tell what happened. Of course, he, being a moron, sticks a tire tool into her supposedly dead chest to get the air out of her lungs before dropping her in the lake. Now she really is dead, boob job and all. The plot thickens.

All of the sisters begin to die one by one. Is it the dead chick’s revenge> Probably not, but it makes a good story. Then the dorm mother shows up, packing heat. “Dirty Carrie” Fisher - who has not aged well since her Princess Leigh days- is still a fine actress, and goes about chasing down the phantom killer in the hooded graduation gown with a pump action automatic shotgun.

It’s a typical teen scream flick, but there’s a great deal of fun tossed in. Reminiscent of “The Faculty” in it’s gags. Oh, and for all the pervs, there’s plenty of young, half nekkid babes. Four Stars.

When I first saw the previews of 9 a few months ago, the first thing I thought was “PLEASE don’t let this be a 3-D movie! I HATE 3-D movies!” The second thing was, these characters look like sock puppets.

Wellsir, it was not 3-D, and yes, 9 and his eight pals do look a bit like sock puppets, if you wear burlap socks that is. But they are much more. They are the creation of a scientific genius who actually put his very soul into them to give them life just before the “machines” took over the planet and eliminated all life.

It’s a really fun movie, and even though it is animated, I am not so sure it is for small kids. A four and a half star movie.

I CAN DO BAD ALL BY MYSELF is the latest from comedian/writer/director Tyler Perry. His character Medea returns again in all her badass glory to provide comic relief amidst the seriousness of the storyline. Drugs, domestic abuse, and all the usual demons are present in this story of family coming together with the help of kind strangers and the good Lord.

Great acting and absolutely marvelous music. Gladys Knight sings two songs in the church, as does Mary J. Bliege. Old school R&B, the stuff I love. Oh and Marvin Winans is great as the pastor, and boy howdy can he belt out a tune. I felt like I was in church right there in the movie theater! Five Stars all the way.

Keep it Real. Keep it Southern.

  Solo was busily checking readouts from gauges and dials in the hold area.Occasionally he would pass a small box across various sensors, study the result, andcluck with pleasure.   "You can stop worrying about your Imperial friends," he told Luke and Ben."They'll never be able to track us now. Told you I'd lose them."   Kenobi might have nodded briefly in response, but he was engaged in explainingsomething to Luke.   "Don't everybody thank me at once," Solo grunted, slightly miffed. "Anyway,navigation computer calculates our arrival in Alderaan orbit at oh-two-hundred. I'mafraid after this little adventure I'll have to forge a new registration."   He returned to his checking, passing in front of a small circular table. The topwas covered with small squares lit from beneath, while computer monitors were setinto each side. Tiny three-dimensional figures were projected above the tabletopfrom various squares.   Chewbacca sat hunched over on side of the table, his chin resting in massivehands. His great eyes glowing and facial whiskers wrinkled upward, he gave everysign of being well pleased with himself.  Meanwhile, the discussion had attracted the attention of several especiallygruesome-looking types who happened to be clustered within hearing range. Alwere regarding Luke and the two 'droids in a decidedly unfriendly fashion.   "Yes, of course," Luke said, realizing this wasn't the time or place to force theissue of 'droid rights. "I'm sorry." He looked over at Threepio.UGG Boots Clearance "You'd betterstay outside with the speeder. We don't want any trouble in here."   "I heartily agree with you, sir," Threepio said, his gaze traveling past Luke andthe bartender to take in the unfriendly stares at the bar. "I don't feel the need forlubrication at the moment anyway." UGG Boots Clearance With Artoo waddling in his wake, the tall robothastily headed for the exit.   That finished things as far as the bartender was concerned, but Luke now foundhimself the subject of some unwanted attention. He abruptly became aware of hisisolation and felt as if at one time or another every eye in the place rested a momenton him, that things human and otherwise were smirking and making comments abouthim behind his back.   Trying to maintain an air of quiet confidence, he returned his gaze to old Ben,and started when he saw what the oldster was talking to now. The Corellian UGG Boots Clearance wasgone. In its place Kenobi was chatting with a towering anthropoid that showed amouthful of teeth when it smiled.   Luke had heard about Wookies, but he had never expected to see one, much lessmeet on. Despite an almost comical quasi-monkey face, the Wookie was anythingbut gentle looking. Only the large, glowing yellow eyes softened its otherwiseawesome appearance. The massive torso was covered entirely with soft, thick russetfur. Less appealing cover consisted of a pair of chromed bandoliers, which heldlethal projectiles of a type unknown to Luke.Ugg boots clearance Other than these, the Wookies worelittle.Not, Luke knew, that anyone would laugh at the creature's mode of dress. He sawthat other denizens of the bar eddied and swirled around the huge form without evercoming too close. All but old Ben-Ben who was talking to the Wookie in its ownlanguage, quarreling and hooting softly like a native.   In the course of the conversation the old man had occasion to gesture in Luke'sdirection. Once the huge anthropoid stared directly at Luke and let out a Ugg boots clearance horrifyinghowling laugh.   Disgruntled by the role he was evidently playing in the discussion, Luke turnedaway and pretended to ignore the whole conversation. Ugg boots clearance He might be acting unfairlytoward the creature, but he doubted that spine-quaking laugh was meant in gentlegood-fellowship.   For the life of him he couldn't understand what Ben wanted with the monster, orwhy he was spending his time in guttural conversation with it instead of with the now-vanished Corellians. So he sat and sipped his drink in splendid silence, his eyesroving over the crowd in hopes of meeting a responsive gaze that held no belligerence.   Suddenly, something shoved him roughly from behind, so hard he almost fell.He turned angrily,Ugg boots outlet but his fury spent itself in astonishment. He found himselfconfronted by a large squarish monstrosity of multiple eyes and indeterminate origin.   "Negola dewaghi wooldugger?" the apparition bubbled challengingly.
