A Cursed Weekend at the Movies

by | February 25, 2005 | Comments

This weekend must be cursed. The two major releases — “Cursed” and “Man of the House” — were either not screened for critics or not screened in time for them to make Friday’s morning press. So don’t blame us for the lack of reviews for those two films. Clearly, the studios are trying to hide the quality of their movies, or lack there of, with marketing dollars before critics can get a chance to alert the public.

From writer Kevin Williamson and director Wes Craven, both of whom revitalized the horror genre with the “Scream” films, “Cursed” stars Christina Ricci as one of two siblings who are blessed with superpowers after a car accident. However, they soon learn that their new found powers also come with a price. “Cursed,” at the time of this writing, has an ominously rotten Tomatometer of 33%. Most of the reviews are from Internet critics who are able to post their reviews before their print counterpart.

Man of the House” stars Tommy Lee Jones as a ranger who is hired to protect a house full of college cheerleaders after they witnessed a crime. A laughfest? Probably not. At the time of this writing, the film doesn’t have enough reviews to calculate a Tomatometer. The film also stars Cedric the Entertainer.

The only marginally wide release that dared to be screened was “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” which received a very moldy 24% on the Tomatometer. That’s probably what you can expect from the other two films too.

In summary, it’s a pretty bad weekend at the movies. Who knows, maybe critics were just too scared to get anywhere near those films.
