It's Friday and it's 4th of July weekend - Lots of choices for things to do in Iowa City and Coralville this weekend... In Iowa City we have the Toyota-Scion Jazz Festival - a 3 day event from July 2 - July 4. In Coralville the 4th of July celebrations started yesterday already making it a 4 day extravaganza.
With all this going on, is anyone thinking of going to the movies this weekend? It's my regular day for looking at new movies so let me give you the lowdown on what your choices are this weekend just in case you are. As far as new movies are concerned, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse has been out a couple of days now and is sure attract a lot of attention - 4th of July weekend or not! I haven't seen any of the Twilight movies, but then I'm not a teenager. I'm definitely not in the demographic they are shooting for! They have quite a cult following so I'm sure they'll do well. Apparently Eclipse, the new sequel has pleased the critics more than New Moon, the last offering. I don't think it really matters though. Cult followers won't care. They'll think it's great no matter what.
The other new movie is The Last Airbender, directed by M. Night Shyamalan. The movie is based on the successful Nickelodeon TV series and it seems the controversial Mr. Shyamalan messes up badly taking it to the big screen. Who knows, maybe it's got a forgiving cult following too who will look past the poor interpretation of the source material. It wouldn't be the first time critics got it all wrong! You can check the schedule for movies at the Coral Ridge Mall Movie Theatre in Coralville and the Sycamore Mall Cinema in Iowa City...
The weather is perfect and there's fun stuff going on in both Iowa City at the Jazz Festival4thFest. and in Coralville at And if neither of the above movies are your cup of tea Toy Story 3 is a safe bet for a fun time. The way things are going it might end up being the movie of the year!
I was going to skip mentioning the World Cup this week, since the USA and England are both out of it and interest is lower because of that... However... Brazil just got knocked out by the Netherlands! Pretty amazing stuff! And if you don't know too much about our football, let me just tell you that Brazil is THE team that has been in the most World Cup Finals and taken the most trophies home... Germany, ("my" team by extension through my German sons), is the next most successful team historically speaking and of course they're playing Argentina tomorrow. Exciting stuff, made all the more exciting by this turn of events with Brazil. Maybe Ghana can pull a surpise out of the the hat too. It would be great if there was an African country in the semi-finals.
Anyway, enough about football, let's get on with the celebrations...Whatever you're doing this 4th of July weekend have a fun one!
