Having not been in a while, I’m probably due to see a movie in the theater in the next couple weeks, so let’s look at what’s currently making money in the movie theater and check out what the options are.

Alice in Wonderland is enjoying a two week stint at the top of the box office, having gained $208.6 million since it’s opening. The film looks slightly crazed, and I’d expect nothing less from Tim Burton. It’s definitely not an ultra-“Guy” film, but I’m still interested to see it. Besides, it’s Johnny Depp, can you really go wrong? (No need to mention Pirates of the Caribbean 2, we let it slide). The special effects would probably make it the type of film I’d see in the theater instead of waiting for DVD.

The new Bourne Identi… wait, sorry, “Green Zone” was #2 last week with $14.5 million. I liked the Jason Bourne films, and although I don’t expect Green Zone to be as compelling as the first or third Bourne flicks, I think it’ll be worth the time and money to see in a theater.

Last week’s #3 film, She’s Out of My League, looks funny, but the main draw to the film is the hot actress – Alice Eve. I don’t think I’ll make it to the theater for this one unless one of the other films is sold out, or until it ends up at the discount theater I frequent.

I definitely won’t be seeing “Remember Me” at the movie theater. I am interested to see what Robert Pattinson can do apart from Twilight (not that I’ve seen any of those movies), and I do like some of the supporting cast of that movie (Chris Cooper, Lena Olin, Pierce Brosnan). I’ll wait for DVD… and even then, there won’t be much of a rush.

Shutter Island” looks a tad creepy, but I’ve heard great things – which is to be expected from a DiCaprio / Scorsese vehicle. It already has a 125% return on investment in only a month, and I’m guessing that prior to hitting DVD, it gets some of my money as well.

Though the premise of “Our Family Wedding” – a Latina introducing her family to her African American fiance – could provide some funny moments, I strongly doubt I see it in theaters. Depending on the reviews, I’ll check it out on DVD someday.

As an avid movie watcher, I owe it to myself to see Avatar to see if it lives up to the hype. My gut feeling is that it won’t be as amazingly awesome as some people have said, but I’ll still probably see it on the big screen because its special effects deserve it.

I wouldn’t be surprised if “Brooklyn’s Finest” was a great movie, though for some reason I don’t feel compelled to rush to the theater to see it. When it comes to my local discount theater, I’ll make the effort to see if it’s good or not. I won’t be too disappointed if I have to wait for DVD, but I will be sure to watch it before 2010 is over.

I don’t know why, but “Cop Out” looks moderately funny. It has already gained 33% more at the box office than it cost to make. Definitely a rental for me, but I hope to see it before 2011 hits.

The Crazies is not my type of film, but there are already two reviews of the movie here on GuysNation, so check those out if you’d be interested to hear what people think.

Here are the films which dropped out of the Box Office Top 10 from last week:

I’ve been told the book “Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief” was a fast-and-enjoyable read, so I’ll give that a look (if my aliterate tendencies don’t stop me). If the book’s decent, I’d check it out. It probably won’t be as good as the Harry Potter series, though. I do enjoy my mythology, though.

I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to seeing Valentine’s Day. Certainly nothing wrong with seeing a movie that features Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, Taylor Swift and Jessica Alba. It’s definitely going to have to wait for DVD though.

Having not seen any previews for Crazy Heart, the only reason I’m interested in that film is because it includes the role which won a Best Actor at this year’s Oscars. That, and Maggie Gyllenhall is in it, and while I don’t find her particularly attractive, I do really enjoy her acting. Definitely a DVD rental.

There’s no chance I’ll see Dear John in the theaters, despite my affinity for the lovely Amanda Seyfried. It’s more likely that I’d look for spoilers for this one just to confirm my predictions for the outcome of this film. Not likely even a rental.
