Hi kids! Didya miss me? I have to first apologize for slandering "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," that movie was great! More cartoon faces of apes played by Andy Serkis please! Who was your favorite ape? Mine was Maurice the orangutan. Okay, so there's a ton of crazy stuff opening this weekend so let's get right to it! "Conan!" "Fright Night!" "One Day!" "Spy Kids 4" in Smell-o-vision (I'm glad 'Apes' wasn't in smell-o-vision, nah mean?)!

Robert Rodriguez has been really, really busy. But that’s nothing new for the writer/director/producer, and that seems to be the way he likes it. In addition to the 11 features he’s directed since first turning heads with his low budget classic “El Mariachi” (financed largely by Rodriguez’ willingness to submit himself to medical experimentations), Rodriguez has generally had his hands in just about every other area of filmmaking imaginable: writing, editing, producing, doing DP work, composing music and, we’re betting, handling grip and best boy duties at some point too.

With everyone and their mums shooting films in 3D these days, Robert Rodriguez, one of the first filmmakers to use the format, is going the extra mile for his re-boot/sequel to his family franchise, "Spy Kids: All The Time In The World" -- the film was promised to be in '4D,' and it emerged that that meant that film would be presented in Aroma-Scope, a new take on the Smell-O-Vision concept, not seen since John Waters used it on "Polyester," with scratch'n'sniff cards being given to audience members, with on-screen prompts enabling them to smell exactly what the audience are smelling.

Since 3D is a hit (sort of), why not bring back another gimmicky device that will also serve to act as yet another distraction to actually watching the movie you paid $13 to see?

You can't say that Robert Rodriguez wasn't ahead of the curve when it came to the current 3D fad/revolution. The technology might have been primitive compared to what's being used these days, but 2003's "Spy Kids 3D: Game Over" was the first wide 3D release in literally decades, predating the work of better known advocates in the field like James Cameron and Robert Zemeckis, and, for better or worse, paving the way for the current glut of stereoscopic releases.

Yes, the (very successful) "Spy Kids" franchise is still alive and kicking and another entry is on the way in what might be the most star-studded entry yet.

Something's in the air. The days are getting longer. The weather's getting warmer. Your IQ is dropping by the day. That's right, it's the start of the summer movie season! The critical darlings that get you through the winter moments are a thing of the past, replaced by CGI-packed blockbusters, comedies and the occasional kids' flick, designed principally as a way of tempting you into an air conditioned theater to spend money on ice cream and nachos.

We won't lie. This is a mish-mash of leftover films. Not least anticipated, not fervently most anticipated. They are The Escapist (and umm, other films) that didn't quite fit in our other previous lists. They're a mix of indies that we're hoping to have quality performances in them and more traditional action-y, popcorn flicks that could be quality because of the directors or talent involved. You'll just have to read a little deeper to see how we feel about each. In case you missed it, here's part one.“The Cold Light of Day" - Summit - dir. Mabrouk El MechriSynopsis: A cocky young Wall Street trader is thrust into a government conspiracy when his family is kidnapped on vacation in Spain.What You Need To Know: With a script by Scott Wipter ("The Wire") and John Petro, the film will mark the American debut of French-Tunisian helmer Mabrouk El Mechri, who has the interesting and entertaining Jean Claude Van Damme crime-comedy “JCVD” on his resume (a film that both Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino both loved). This latest film has a solid leading trio of stars in Henry Cavill, Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver, but more interestingly, will see Weaver play a villainess (originally written for a male actor) who takes on the father-son duo of Cavill and Willis.Release Date: TBD
