Mr. Moviefone reviews 'Fright Night,' 'Conan the Barbarian,' 'Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D'
This week at the movies, moviegoers will get a whiff of smell-a-vision, Anne Hathaway is talking with a funny accent, and Conan gets barbaric as a legend takes to the battlefield in "Conan the Barbarian" in 3D.
The warrior first brought to the screen by Arnold Schwarzenegger is now played by Jason Mamoa, and Conan sets out for revenge after his father is murdered and his village is slaughtered.
The Reel Deal: Brutal, bloody, barbaric and dumb - the new "Conan the Barbarian" would shame even Schwarzenegger, and that's pretty hard to do at this point. I'm out.
A vampire returns in "Fright Night."
In this remake of the classic, a new guy moves into town and it doesn't take long for bad things to start happening. The boy living next door is the only one to realize his neighbor is a vampire and that he must be the one to destroy him.
The Reel Deal: It's a surprise that big stars like Colin Farrell and Toni Collette show up for a horror remake. It's no surprise that "Fright Night" isn't thrilling or frightening at all. I'm out.
A new family film is adding another dimension in "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D."
Jessica Alba is working double duty as a mom and spy. When the mission doesn't work out quite as planned, it's time to bring in the backup - her kids - to help save the world. In addition to the 3D effects, you'll also get to smell your way through the movie with scratch and sniff cards.
The Reel Deal: With the added fourth dimension of smell-a-vision, all that means is that "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D" actually stinks. I'm out.
There's also "One Day," starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. It's a love story seen through each anniversary of the characters' first meeting.
And in limited release, there's "Flypaper," a comedy starring Patrick Dempsey and Ashley Judd as a customer and a bank teller caught in the middle of two robberies at the same bank.
