Well, it's a tax-free weekend in Texas this weekend, too bad you can't go see a tax free movie. But the good news, there are 4 new movies to choose from this weekend. So, fellas while the wife is out shopping this weekend it might be a good time to go see a man-movie like The Expendable 2. Other selections include Whitney Houston in her last big screen performance in "Sparkle," Jennifer Garner in a tale about a boy who comes from a garden for an inspirational story. And finally an animated family feature about ghouls, goblins and the paranormal "Paranorman."

 

‘The Odd Life of Timothy Green,’ which opened on Wednesday, is the story of a married couple surprised by the sudden arrival of a young boy who came from their garden.

‘The Expendables 2′ has an all-star cast of tough guys: Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Liam Hemsworth, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Jason Statham and Jet Li. The gang is reunited to go after rival mercenaries in this sequel.

‘ParaNorman’ is the tale of a boy who can speak with the dead, becoming the only one who can defend his town against a centuries-old curse that causes zombies, ghosts and witches to attack.

‘Sparkle’ is Whitney Houston’s last movie before her untimely passing. She is the mother of a musical prodigy played by Jordin Sparks, who struggles to become a star while overcoming issues that are tearing her family apart.
