Boom Boom, Bang Bang

There are two movies opening worth actually talking about this weekend. Both feature overwhelming amounts of testosterone with many manly men doing manly things in a way that isn't seen much in the age of the Metrosexual. First up, there's the remake of the classic 3:10 to Yuma, this time with Christian Bale & Russell Crowe. Granted, it's probably nearly impossible to improve on the original, but I love a really good western, which hasn't happened in quite a few years, and this easily looks like it will fill that much needed void.

But I'm more more pumped about the unapologetically mindless action thriller Shoot 'Em Up. Granted, there's a possibility this could just be a cleverly marketed bomb like Snakes on a Plane, but gloriously over the top action films that don't take themselves seriously tend to work, and I'm more than willing to bet this falls in that category rather than the just plain awful over the top films like XXX.
