Three movies hit shops this week and they all were slightly underwhelming when they hit the cinemas. One of them had a great premise that failed to deliver; it is actually in my bottom 10 films of the year so far. Another had a great cast and comedy potential but had poor reviews at the box office. And the final one had a director who achieved a hit with his debut film only to disappoint slightly in a complex movie. Two of these films have been reviewed on this blog although neither being highly scored. Have a look at what you can rent or simply catch up on Bond ready for Skyfall hitting cinemas on Friday.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER - A great premise for a movie. When he was a child Mr Lincoln witnessed his parents being slaughtered by vampires so he vows to seek revenge with the help of a vampire hunter. As he enters politics his obsession dies down until he realises they are also a reason behind slave labour so he attempts to take down both issues at the same time.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING - An all star cast in a film about pregnant women. The movie interweaves different stories of different women's progress through labour be it struggles with their partner, struggles with the situation, or struggles with each other.
