NOTE: In a revival of this "classic" Friday feature, Courier-News reporter Mike Danahey guesses how much beer (or other beverage of choice) it might take him to pay money to see a recently-released movie. His opinions are based on trailers, ads and advance hype -- NOT THE ACTUAL MOVIE. EVERYONE! DO NOT TAKE THIS AS AN ACTUAL MOVIE REVIEW!
That in mind, here is his COMPLETELY UNINFORMED OPINION of movies out Friday, April 30...
A Nightmare on Elm Street
So this "reworking" of the Freddy and the Dreamers story stars the guy who played Rorschach in "Watchmen." It was directed by the guy who directed Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video. And they filmed part of it in Elgin at the Bluff City Cemetery. Still, my heart's not into seeing a movie where 20-year-olds play teens who are slashed up in their dreams -- unless, of course, it was the cast of "Glee" we were talking about. Then I would be first in line to see them all die the painful deaths they so richly deserve.
Beer rating: A couple Old Styles in cans might convince me. But I doubt it.
