official film stillHow to Train Your Dragon

Not much going on this week in theaters as far as quantity, but the two major films that are being released are something to talk about.

Hot Tub Time Machine poster & wallpaperFour best friends, (John Cusack, Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson (NBC’s The Office), and Clark Duke), discover that hot tubs can be fun, especially ones who time-travel back to the 1980’s, in Hot Tub Time Machine.  After each of the guys faces obstacles in their lives, they decided to take a trip to a ski resort where they indulge in heavy drinking and partying… in a mysterious hot tub.  The next morning they wake up and find that they have traveled through time via said time-machine.  So, the guys decide they’re going to try to change their past in order to have the future they wanted.  This definitely looks like a good time.

How to Train Your DragonIn How to Train Your Dragon, Hiccup, a young viking, is brought up in life to hunt dragons.  The funny thing is he ends up having a dragon as his own adorable little pet, and wouldn’t you know it, he learns how to train it.  That’s it.  That’s the basic storyline, BUT that doesn’t mean it won’t be good.  This is a Dreamworks picture.  The same people that brought you Shrek, Kung-Fu Panda, Monsters Vs. Aliens, Over the Hedge; all huge successes.  ‘Dragon‘ won’t go unnoticed especially with the cast that has been brought together.  Jay Baruchel(She’s Out of My League, 2010), Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill, America Ferrara, Craig Ferguson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Superbad, Role Models) are only some of the celebs Dreamworks landed for the viking community.

This weeks MiYM Movie Pick:  Draw!

I can’t decide which one I want to see more.  I’m a fan of great comedians (Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson) in ‘Hot Tub’, and I’m just as big a fan of Dreamworks films.  I’m just gonna have to recommend both this weekend.  I’m sure whatever you decided to watch, you won’t be disappointed.   One thing is for sure, I can almost bet money on ‘Dragons’ taking ‘Alice’ out of the top spot.   If it doesn’t, it will definitely take that ‘Wimpy Kid’ out of second.   Enjoy your weekend!
