Love doesn’t conquer all as Safe Haven couldn’t compete with the fifth installment of the Die Hard franchise. Safe Haven also fell to Identity Thief proving people would rather laugh or catch an action flick then see a romantic sap fest. My question to you Maniacs is, did anyone see the trailer for Safe Haven? Each time I saw it, I felt as if I saw the entire movie. A Good Day to Die Hard was fun, but nothing Earth shattering. It was, in short, a Die Hard movie.

This week we really only have two choices. We can venture off to see Dwayne Johnson in Snitch. Dark Skies, however, looks to be a tad more entertaining. Besides, with G.I.Joe Retaliation coming out, one “Rock” movie is more than enough.
