"I will blow your face clean off your face!"

The two big movies coming out this weekend are: Tower Heist and A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas comes six years after their Guantanamo Bay adventure. In this 3D installment, Harold and Kumar cause a Christmas disaster when they accidentally burn down Harold's father-in-law's prize Christmas tree. Even though they have grown apart over the years, the join together again to try and find the perfect replacement. Along with John Cho, Kal Penn and, of course, Neil Patrick Harris, this movie also stars Patton Oswalt, Danny Trejo, Thomas Lennon, Jake Johnson, David Krumholtz and Paula Garces.

In Tower Heist, a group of hard working guys fall victim to their wealthy boss's Ponzi scheme. In order to get back the money stolen from their pensions, they conspire with the rest of the staff to rob his high-rise residence. This movie stars Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Casey Affleck, Tea Leoni, Michael Pena, Gabourey Sidibe, Judd Hirsch, Jessica Szohr and Alan Alda.

Both of these movies seem mildly interesting but I will probably wait until I can rent them. I have seen the first Harold & Kumar, but not the second and, while the 3D on this actually seems like it might make it more entertaining, I do not feel like I need to see this in theaters.

Also in limited release this weekend are: The Son of No One, Killing Bono and Goethe!
