If last weekend was a whimper, this one is a sigh and a groan, and then a brief shimmering light of hope. Considering the normal lackluster of Labor Day box office, we didn't have high expectations. When we read that the top contender was a One Direction documentary (helmed by Morgan Spurlock) we grimaced, but weren't that surprised given that it's up against a box office of holdovers and considering the successes of the Justin Bieber and 'Hannah Montana' (pre-twerking Miley Cyrus) concert movies. We're more disappointed in the fact that Labor Day weekend is usually a great opportunity for a horror or thriller film to shine through ("The Possession," "Contagion," Rob Zombie's "Halloween," and more) that would have been neglected other weekends (e.g. last weekend's "You're Next").

There's a whole lot of wheel spinning but it never really goes anywhere.

Movie villains are a special breed, usually choosing to hatch elaborate, complicated schemes to complete a goal that would probably be easier to execute if they just went and did it themselves the old-fashioned way. So when some random bad guy wants something from a bank, does he hire a bunch of goons to rob the place? Maybe commit some kind of fraud to get his hands on it? Nope, he gets a race car driver to do his bidding for him all while on a ticking clock...
