It’s a grand, fantastic world full of big adventure and high concept.
Ultimately, it becomes the typical Hollywood comedy that tries to get serious in the end.
A fun origin story with the heart of an underdog really experiencing the wonder of his new powers.
Here’s what’s playing for the weekend of July 15th, 2011
The performances make this a fun, gory horror flick.
An action-packed, fitting conclusion to a monumental franchise.
Exactly the safe kind of mainstream comedy you’d expect it to be.
It’s like a highbrow ‘Billy Madison’.
If this were just a movie about cool robot fights, that would be awesome. That’s not what it is though.
I relate to most movies by thinking about my past. ‘Mr. Nobody’ has me evaluating my future.
The film gets sexual, metaphysical, silly, philosophical, and stirs up a lot of feelings.
A solid creature feature in the vein of the’80s puppet movies
Pixar’s second worst movie. Boring, stupid, and full of bad creative decisions.
A beautiful performance by Rachael Harris in a terrific first film by writer/director Robbie Pickering.
A real thriller with intense stakes, against the backdrop of a relevant social issue.
Doesn’t quite go all the way into dark comedy but it’s unapologetically cynical and that makes for good laughs.
Kat Coiro’s debut feature makes some of the same mistakes as other standard Hollywood movies, but it gets a lot more right.
An gripping action movie by way of atmosphere and build-up.
It’s a great week to be a movie fan. Of course course by “great,” I mean “abysmal.”
An extremely well done, fun film with terrific creatures.
A Jim Carrey penguin movie. It totally delivers on having Jim Carrey and penguins in it.
Looks like a big cartoon, but it’s a really cool cartoon.
Terri is a fat kid, but they don’t play the fat card very long.
Basically, it’s ‘Rush Hour’ with an obnoxious WHITE cop, and a reasonable competent black agent has to deal with him.
It is more often uncomfortable but sometimes profound and inspiring.
An interesting twist on the crime saga/warlord genre, told through the perspective of an outsider forced to be inside.
Turns out to be a patronizing exercise in fabricated childhood emotion.
It’s so good, I held my pee for at least 90 minutes because I didn’t want to miss anything.
What better way to honor their memory than by spending your extra day off watching a movie about a talking smart-alec panda that knows kung fu?
