Fun Movies You Don’t Have to Be Ashamed to See

Look out below, movie-goers. Weekend movie openings this week include not one, but two movies that not only will be box-office powers, but are meeting with some critical acclaim.

The Flamethrower’s main reviewer, Christie Lemire of The Associated Press , saw screenings of the Disney-Pixar animated flick “Up ” and Sam Raimi’s return to horror, “Drag Me to Hell .” I was curious how she’d review them, since she normally is pretty hard-edged when it comes to both cartoons and horror.

Well, wonder of wonders, she doled out three-and-a-half stars each, out of a possible four.

Just our luck, huh? Two movies you know you’ll like, that you don’t have to wear a disguise to so see, and it’s going to be a beautiful, sunny weekend.

Ah, well … no one can stand that much sun, anyway.
