New Movies to Crave: Getaway with Fast Five and Dylan Dog or Just Enjoy Prom

View Chris Kavan's Profile

By Chris Kavan - 04/29/11 at 09:53 AM CT

While I think technically summer season is going to start next week with Thor, I think Vin Diesel and crew are going to make their own mark this weekend and will overshadow all competition.

1) The first Fast and the Furious was a lot of fun - the next two sequels were not nearly as good. Then came the fourth film that revitalized the series for me. Now I hope they keep things in high gear for Fast Five. It looks like they're going to pick and choose the cream of the crop for all the previous films - not only do you have Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and eye-candyrific Jordana Brewster, but also Tyrese Gibson and Ludacris (2 Fast 2 Furious) and Sung Kang (Tokyo Drift). Apparently Lucas Black didn't make the "elite" cut - though Dwayne Johnson is along as the protagonist, so expect some epic throw downs to take place. I don't see any awards for this in the future, but I am expecting to be entertained.

2) If fast cars and testosterone aren't your cup of tea, maybe you'd rather hang out with a supernatural detective. Brandon Routh brings Dylan Dog to big screen - distinctive look and all. I don't know what I expect him to find in the Louisiana Bayou, but I'm hoping for undead of all kinds to show up. I've never read the original material, so I have only a vague interest in this film. I have a feeling it will probably get lost in the crowd and will be lucky to break the top 5.

3) Trying to capture the teenage crowd will be Prom. Looking like a High School Musical-esque film about, like, the GREATEST night of a teen's life... okay, I think I just threw up in my mouth a little... anyway, I will never, ever watch this. If you're in the right age group, by all means take your friends along and admire all the pretty people on the really big screen. As for me, I'll stick to fast cars and testosterone.

4) Finally, in the category of "sequels no one asked for" department comes Hoodwinked Too!: Hood vs. Evil. If memory serves me correctly, the first movie wasn't that great and despite some talent in the vocal (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Glenn Close, Hayden Panettiere and Cheech & Chong amongst others!) - I can't fathom why they decided this was a film that needed a sequel. Plus it's getting to be a crowded market for animated films and I can't imagine this will do well up against Rio. I've been wrong before, but I smell another Mars Needs Moms! albeit on a much smaller budget.

I hope this week proves to be another up week - at least there's some hope with this lineup. I'll be back Sunday to see how the new entries hold up.
