"An orgy won't look after you when you're old."

Opening this weekend at the box office is One Day, Fright Night, Conan the Barbarian and Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D.

One Day stars Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgiss and is about two people who meet for the first time on the night of their graduation from college. We then see their relationship on that same date every year. Some days they are together, some days they are not. Some days they like each other, some days they hate each other. Over the years they learn what friendship and love is really all about.



Fright Night is about a high school senior who thinks that his new neighbor, Jerry, might be a vampire. When none of his friends or family believe him, he decides that he must kill Jerry himself before anyone else gets hurt. The movie stars Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell, Toni Collette, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, David Tennant and Imogen Poots.



Conan the Barbarian is Cimmerian warrior seeking vengeneance for the murder of his father and the slaughter of his village. The film is based on the character created by Robert Howard and previously played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. This time around Conan is being portrayed by Jason Mamoa with support from Rose McGowan, Ron Perlman, Stephen Lang and Rachel Nichols.



Spy Kids stars Jessica Alba as a former spy. She is married to a famous spy-hunting reporter, played by Joel McHale, who has no idea what was his wife's former profession. When a villian threatens to take over the world, she is called back to duty and, with the help of her step-children and a pair of other "spy kids", fights to save the world.



None of these movie appeal to me, but Fright Night seems to be getting the best reviews so far this week. If I were forced to choose, I would probably go with that one.

Also in limited release is: Griff the Invisible and Amigo.
