NEW MOVIES!  AUGUST 26 - SEPTEMBER 1, 2014
BLENDED (USA, PG-13) - Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore grace us with another dysfunctional romcom. Remember how much you didn't want to like 50 FIRST DATES but just kept watching it anyway and then kinda enjoyed it? This is gonna be kinda like that except there're kids and a safari in Africa.
DIRECTED BY: Frank Coraci
STARRING: Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore
METASCORE: 31, based on 32 Critics
BELLE (UK, PG) - The illegitimate child of a Royal Navy Admiral is raised by her aristocratic uncle in 18th century England. As a child of mixed race, high class Belle was afforded certain privileges but denied others. If this makes any sense or interests you, you should watch it because word on the street is it's a good flick.
DIRECTED BY: Amma Asante
STARRING: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Tom Wilkinson, Miranda Richardson, Penelope Wilton, Sam Reid, Matthew Goode, Emily Watson, Sarah Gadon, Tom Felton, James Norton
METASCORE: 64, based on 35 Critics
*THE DOUBLE (UK, R) - Well-known in the UK, comedy actor Richard Ayoade's only claim to fame in America is playing the nerdy guy you'd never seen in anything before in THE WATCH. Following up his successfully Wes Anderson-ish SUBMARINE, Ayoade adapts a Dostoevsky story to a modern office and has Jesse Eisenberg play two guys with the same name and the same face, but very different personalities.
DIRECTED BY: Richard Ayoade
STARRING: Jesse Eisenberg, Mia Wasikowska, Wallace Shawn, Noah Taylor, Yasmin Paige, James Fox
METASCORE: 68, based on 31 Critics
LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY'S RETURN (USA, PG) - How many Oz movies are there now? From the original to THE WIZ to TIN MAN with Zooey Deschanel to that lousy newish one with James Franco, we've seen the yellow brick road over and over again. This one's animated so maybe, just maybe, we'll get something new out of it.
DIRECTED BY: Will Finn / Daniel St. Pierre
VOICES BY: Lea Michele, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Jim Belushi, Megan Hilty, Hugh Dancy, Oliver Platt, Martin Short
METASCORE: 25, based on 21 Critics
THE LOVE PUNCH (UK, PG-13) - Divorce sucks, or maybe it doesn't. But what sucks more is when your retirement money is stolen and your ex is Pierce Brosnan and you have no choice but to team up with 007 to get back what's rightfully yours.
DIRECTED BY: Joel Hopkins
STARRING: Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson, Timothy Spall
METASCORE: 44, based on 20 Critics
THE NORMAL HEART (USA, Not Rated) - This made-for-HBO drama is about a gay activist trying to raise awareness about AIDS/HIV in the 1980s. It's like the gritty, angry flipside of ANGELS IN AMERICA and even though it's directed by the guy behind GLEE, it's still supposed to be really good.
DIRECTED BY: Ryan Murphy
STARRING: Mark Ruffalo, Jonathan Groff, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons, Alfred Molina, Joe Mantello, Julia Roberts
METASCORE: 85, based on 33 Critics
YOUNG & BEAUTIFUL (France, Not Rated) - It's about a young girl who, after losing her virginity, decides to become a hotel room call girl for no discernible reason. Obviously, all the fans of saucy Euro-smut out there are gonna rent this movie, but it's got enough drama, mystery and intelligence for the rest of us to enjoy it, too.
DIRECTED BY: Francois Ozon
STARRING: Marine Vacth, Charlotte Rampling, Géraldine Pailhas, Frédéric Pierrot
METASCORE: 63, based on 27 Critics
^TRUST ME (USA, R) - Much to his chagrin, Howard Holloway is a failing Hollywood child star agent. When he gets the chance to sign a promising new client who needs a father figure, all kinds of good stuff starts happening - until it all goes bad. This noir-ish satire of the movie industry calls to mind THE PLAYER, only with less glibness and a smaller budget.
DIRECTED BY: Clark Gregg
STARRING: Clark Gregg, Felicity Huffman, Allison Janney, William H. Macy, Amanda Peet, Sam Rockwell, Molly Shannon, Saxon Sharbino
METASCORE: 51, based on 14 Critics
BLOOD GLACIER (Austria, Not Rated) - A science team stationed at a remote climate research outpost in the German Alps discovers a red fluid flowing from a melting glacier. The fluid causes horrifying changes in the local wildlife and soon the researchers find themselves having to fight off some pretty terrible creatures. This movie has it all: a half-hearted attempt to address climate change, glaciers, monsters, German stuff, and practical monster effects. I'm sold.
DIRECTED BY: Marvin Kren
STARRING: Gerhard Liebmann, Edita Malovcic, Brigitte Kren
METASCORE: 45, based on 9 Critics
JACKPOT (Norway, Not Rated) - This shocking Coen-brothers-inspired Swedish thriller involves the supervisor of a Christmas tree farm waking up in a strip club with a shotgun in hand and eight corpses in front of him. The ensuing tale sees him piecing together what exactly happened the night before while being grilled by a hard-boiled detective. Expect liberal flourishes of black humor, shocking violence, and odd Scandinavianisms.
DIRECTED BY: Magnus Martens
STARRING: Kyrre Hellum, Mads Ousdal, Henrik Mestad
METASCORE: 43, based on 7 Critics
THE TROUBLE WITH THE TRUTH (USA, R) - Perpetually starving musician Robert advises his recently engaged daughter against marriage as he can't quite understand why anyone would give up complete independence. Keep in mind, this is coming from the man whose heart was ripped out by his ex, Emily. But oh, hey, Emily is back in the picture and their story isn't done yet.
DIRECTED BY: Jim Hemphill
STARRING: Lea Thompson, John Shea, Danielle Harris, Keri Lynn Pratt
METASCORE: 81, based on 4 Critics
MORE THAN THE RAINBOW (USA, Not Rated) - A featured street photographer, Matt Webber, gets a whole movie of his art set to jazz music. Watch it if you like New York, non-digital photography, and documentaries of this kind.
DIRECTED BY: Dan Wechsler
METASCORE: 66, based on 4 Critics
CINEMANOVELS (Canada, R) - A young woman decides to make a film about her deceased father. Things get a little more complicated as she finds that the making of the film is messing with her life.
DIRECTED BY: Terry Miles
STARRING: Lauren Lee Smith, Jennifer Beals, Ben Cotton, Kett Turton, Katharine Isabelle
METASCORE: 59, based on 4 Critics
KILIMANJARO (USA, Not Rated) - When a man and his girlfriend call it quits, he decides that naturally his next step in life should be to climb Kilimanjaro.
DIRECTED BY: Walter Strafford
STARRING: Brian Geraghty, Alexia Rasmussen, Chris Marquette, Abigail Spencer, Jim Gaffigan
#I KNOW THAT VOICE (USA, Not Rated) - This is a documentary about possibly the most overlooked segment of the acting community, voice actors. If you've ever been curious about the faces behind the voices of your favorite cartoon characters, this one is for you. As a huge fan of THE SIMPSONS, FUTURAMA, FAMILY GUY and more, this is one I refuse to miss.
DIRECTED BY: Lawrence Shapiro
STARRING: John DiMaggio, Kevin Conroy, E.G. Daily, Tom Kenny, Rachael MacFarlane, Tara Strong, Hank Azaria, Mark Hamill, Billy West, Seth Green, Nancy Cartwright
