This Weekend in Movies January 29th
A parody of the erotic romance Fifty Shades of Grey in this comedy Hannah (Kali Hawk) a college student meets Christian Black (Marlon Wayans) a wealthy businessman who’s sexual practices put a strain on his relationships. I have no words this movie looks so dumb and all the humor looks very predictable.
Cast: Kali Hawk (Bridesmaids, Couples Retreat), Marlon Wayans (White Chicks, Scary Movie), Jane Seymour (Wedding Crashers, Live and Let Die), Mike Epps (The Hangover, Sparkle), and Fred Willard (The Night Before, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy)
Director: Michael Tiddes (A Haunted House, A Haunted House 2)
In this action film, a bad storm splits a pair of oil tankers and its left to Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) and a few others from the Coast Guard to go on a rescue mission to save the lives of the 30 men trapped on the ships. Based on the actual event in 1952 off the Cape Cod coast. This film looks like it will be very intense with such a great cast this movie looks very good.
Cast: Chris Pine (Star Trex, Horrible Bosses 2), Holliday Grainger (Cinderella, The Riot Club), Casey Affleck (Gone Baby Gone, Interstellar), Ben Foster (Pandorum, Alpha Dog), Kyle Gallner (American Sniper, Beautiful Creatures), John Ortiz (Fast & Furious, Silver Linings Playbook), Eric Bana (Star Tres, Munich), Rachel Brosnahan (The Blacklist, House of Cards), Keiynan Lonsdale (The Flash, Insurgent), Michael Raymond-James (True Blood, Once Upon a Time), John Magaro (Unbroken, My Soul to Take), Graham McTavish (Rambo, The Hobbit), and Josh Stewart (The Collection, The Dark Knight Rises)

After Jane Hammond’s (Natalie Portman) new husband comes home riddled with bullets after dueling with the Bishop Boys gang and their restless leader, Colin (Ewan McGregor). In this western its a battle of survival when Jane must ask her former fiancé Dan Frost (Joel Egerton) to help protect her family against Colin and his gang. This film hasn’t been advertised much I’ve only seen a trailer for it once but I do enjoy Natalie Portman’s work so I would probably go see this.
