I was even less excited than usual about hitting the multiplex this week, because really, who needs to pay for fake action and thrills when you can turn on CNN and watch accounts of awesome real-life badassery for free? The righteous and appropriately brutal killing of Osama bin Laden has kept me glued to the tube these past few days, and frankly, in light of such events, I fail to see how something as pedestrian as “Fast Five” is continuing to rake in obscene amounts of cash at the box office. Priorities, people.

Thankfully next week brings the well-reviewed “Thor,” which will usher in the early stages of the summer movie season. We’ve got some promising titles coming up, many of which I’m confident will provide more bang for your buck than the often dull “Fast Five” and the rest of the disappointing movies that have blighted release schedules these past many months.
