NEW MOVIES!  JANUARY 27 - FEBRUARY 2, 2015
FURY (USA, R) - In 1945, a hardened army Sergeant crosses enemy lines during the war in Europe. Brad Pitt, rugged and tough, is said to do it again in this one. Tanks, guns, enemies and allies sounds like fun. It's from the guy who wrote TRAINING DAY and directed END OF WATCH, so it's probably full of moral grey areas.
DIRECTED BY: David Ayer
STARRING: Brad Pitt, Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Peņa, Jon Bernthal
METASCORE: 64, based on 47 Critics
THE BOOK OF LIFE (USA, PG) - In this animated comedy good enough for the whole family, a charming man is conflicted between what his heart wants and what his family needs. There are some stellar Dia de los Muertos costumes and more to it than I have described. That's why you have to watch it.
DIRECTED BY: Jorge R. Gutierrez
VOICES BY: Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana, Channing Tatum, Ron Perlman, Christina Applegate, Ice Cube, Kate del Castillo
METASCORE: 67, based on 27 Critics
THE JUDGE (USA, R) - Everybody loves Robert Downey, Jr. Everybody loves Robert Duvall. And everybody loves a courtroom drama. This movie has all three of those things. That is why people will love it.
DIRECTED BY: David Dobkin
STARRING: Robert Downey, Jr., Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga, Vincent D'Onofrio, Jeremy Strong, Dax Shepard, Billy Bob Thornton
METASCORE: 48, based on 39 Critics
MY OLD LADY (UK, PG-13) - A man inherits a big cool apartment building. The problem is that it comes with an old lady. On the bright side, that woman is a 90-year-old version of Maggie Smith.
DIRECTED BY: Israel Horovitz
STARRING: Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas, Dominique Pinon
METASCORE: 52, based on 19 Critics
BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP (UK, R) - It's kinda like MEMENTO but stars Nicole Kidman. She begins to try and piece together her former life and the conclusions are shocking and confusing. This one's a plot twister you're maybe not gonna see coming.
DIRECTED BY: Rowan Joffe
STARRING: Nicole Kidman, Mark Strong, Colin Firth, Anne-Marie Duff
METASCORE: 41, based on 31 Critics
^WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD (USA, R) - Gregg Araki, in MYSTERIOUS SKIN mode, takes another stab at respectability and almost gets there with the help of everyone's new favorite actress, Shailene Woodley. When mother goes missing, life gets chaotic. It seems that Mommy Dearest may be suffering from some sort of mental illness.
DIRECTED BY: Gregg Araki
STARRING: Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Christopher Meloni, Shiloh Fernandez, Gabourey Sidibe, Thomas Jane, Angela Bassett
METASCORE: 49, based on 23 Critics
THE GREEN PRINCE (Germany, PG-13) - The son of the leader of some sort of Palestinian organization becomes a spy for the Israelis. Uh-oh, someone's playing with fire. It's a real-life documentary, but it plays out like an exciting spy thriller, like the kind people like.
DIRECTED BY: Nadav Schirman
METASCORE: 67, based on 19 Critics
ART AND CRAFT (USA, Not Rated) - Unlike MY KID COULD PAINT THAT, this doc is about a real quality art forger named Mark Landis. He spent several decades copying the greats in great detail and the kicker is that he wasn't doing it for the money. In fact, he used to give away "real" famous paintings just to look like a philanthropic dude.
DIRECTED BY: Sam Cullman / Jennifer Grausman
METASCORE: 68, based on 13 Critics
MISS MEADOWS (USA, Not Rated) - Katie Holmes plays a school teacher who leads a double life as a vigilante, like Batman, but with a gun. I never really pegged Holmes as anything rugged but we'll see. She did survive being married to Tom Cruise, though, so that's gotta count for something.
DIRECTED BY: Karen Leigh Hopkins
STARRING: Katie Holmes, James Badge Dale, Callan Mulvey, Stephen Bishop
METASCORE: 43, based on 13 Critics
THE COLOR OF TIME (USA, R) - This is about what it is like to experience life the way that Pulitzer-prize winning poet CK Williams does. There are lots of nice people in it who you like much a lot often kinda probably. It might not be that great, though. Who knows?
DIRECTED BY: Edna Luise Biesold / Sarah-Violet Bliss
STARRING: James Franco, Henry Hopper, Mila Kunis, Jessica Chastain, Zach Braff, Bruce Campbell
METASCORE: 34, based on 12 Critics
PLOT FOR PEACE (South Africa, Not Rated) - This movie is about apartheid and the mysterious Frenchman who helped free Nelson Mandela. Apartheid was when some stuff happened in South Africa that made it so white people and black people couldn't play nice together. Good thing that's over with. It's a real-life documentary, but it plays out like an exciting political thriller, like the kind people like.
DIRECTED BY: Carlos Agullo / Mandy Jacobson
METASCORE: 75, based on 9 Critics
*THE MULE (Australia, Not Rated) - Smuggling drugs can be a difficult and unpleasant venture and that's something you'll learn from this film. You know what they say: when something comes out, something smelly might have to go back down. It just goes to show that some life choices are better than others.
DIRECTED BY: Tony Mahony / Angus Sampson
STARRING: Hugo Weaving, Angus Sampson, Leigh Whannell, Ewen Leslie, Georgina Haig, John Noble
METASCORE: 57, based on 6 Critics
DAYS AND NIGHTS (USA, Not Rated) - Somehow, this is like a funny and sensitive updating of Anton Chekov's "The Seagull." If you know that play, or even if you don't, maybe you'll want to see this. It has many people in it who all have faces and you may recognize or like them, at least.
DIRECTED BY: Christian Camargo
STARRING: Christian Camargo, Katie Holmes, William Hurt, Allison Janney, Cherry Jones, Russell Means, Michael Nyqvist, Jean Reno, Juliet Rylance, Mark Rylance, Ben Whishaw
METASCORE: 36, based on 6 Critics
BY THE GUN (USA, R) - A criminal of the hitman persuasion has a crisis of conscience mostly due to his mafia life being all messy and complicated and flowing over into his home life. Yeah, I can see how that might be an issue. Well, he's got some choices to make: mostly whether to quit his "career" or not. Yup, that's the question.
DIRECTED BY: James Mottern
STARRING: Ben Barnes, Leighton Meester, Harvey Keitel, Kenny Wormald, Toby Jones, Paul Ben-Victor, Ritchie Coster, Slaine
JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS (USA, PG-13) - Batman does not swim. One might assume he'd sink, if submerged. This brings some of the classic heroes to battle for the existence of Atlantis. A cyborg battling in the ocean sounds electrifying.
DIRECTED BY: Ethan Spaulding
VOICES BY: Jerry O'Connell, Rosario Dawson, Nathan Fillion, Sean Astin, Juliet Landau
