NEW MOVIES!  SEPTEMBER 1 - SEPTEMBER 7, 2015
^MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (Australia, R) - Finally, we have the much anticipated "next" Mad Max movie set in Australia in a post-apocalyptic horror show of a world. A rag tag group of questionable characters along with Max set out to find the homeland of a woman who refuses to bow to a tyrannical ruler. If any of that sounds enticing... well, you know what to do.
DIRECTED BY: George Miller
STARRING: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, Zo Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Courtney Eaton
METASCORE: 89, based on 47 Critics
I'LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS (USA, PG-13) - Bart informed me that he's willing to watch this nice elderly couple movie, but only because he hears it is not just another nice elderly couple movie. Plus, Gwyneth Paltrow's mom is supposed to be really good in it.
DIRECTED BY: Brett Haley
STARRING: Blythe Danner, Martin Starr, Sam Elliott, Malin Akerman, June Squibb, Rhea Perlman, Mary Kay Place
METASCORE: 75, based on 26 Critics
THE D TRAIN (USA, R) - Jack Black gets real drunk and takes a caboose ride on the D train in order to get the most popular dude from high school to attend the class reunion and thereby ensuring everyone else will show up. Was it worth it, buddy?
DIRECTED BY: Andrew Mogel / Jarrad Paul
STARRING: Jack Black, James Marsden, Kathryn Hahn, Russell Posner, Jeffrey Tambor, Mike White
METASCORE: 55, based on 33 Critics
GOOD KILL (USA, R) - Try this thriller about modern day warfare from the writer of THE TRUMAN SHOW and GATTACA. Ethan Hawke fights by pushing buttons and sending out drones from the privacy and luxury of an air conditioned box in the desert. This puts a strain on his human relationships.
DIRECTED BY: Andrew Niccol
STARRING: Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Zo Kravitz, Jake Abel, Bruce Greenwood
METASCORE: 63, based on 33 Critics
DIOR AND I (French, R) - This is a high fashion documentary that tries to convince us it's about so much more than just flaunting elaborate and pretty dresses. It's a lot of hard work, and even more stressful in the real world than it is on PROJECT RUNWAY.
DIRECTED BY: Frederic Tcheng
METASCORE: 70, based on 25 Critics
BESSIE (USA, Not Rated) - HBO and Queen Latifah present this Emmy-nominated flick about the legendary blues singer. It's one of those rags to riches tales that seeks to prove that with hard work and determination there's nothing you can't do.
DIRECTED BY: Dee Rees
STARRING: Queen Latifah, Michael Kenneth Williams, Khandi Alexander, Mo'Nique
METASCORE: 75, based on 20 Critics
THE FACE OF AN ANGEL (UK, Not Rated) - This movie is based on the real life drama of Amanda Knox, an American student accused of murder in Italy. A journalist and a filmmaker cover the story and secrets unfold that are upsetting. Whodunit is not as black and white as one would hope.
DIRECTED BY: Michael Winterbottom
STARRING: Kate Beckinsale, Daniel Brhl, Cara Delevingne
METASCORE: 37, based on 17 Critics
THE NIGHTMARE (USA, Not Rated) - As opposed to the usual documentary-style horror movies we get these days, here's a horror-style documentary about eight people and their experience during sleep paralysis. I don't know about you but to me that sounds absolutely terrifying.
DIRECTED BY: Rodney Ascher
METASCORE: 69, based on 16 Critics
GLEN CAMPBELL: I'LL BE ME (USA, PG) - After being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, Glen and his wife set out to do a "Goodbye Tour" which lasted for 151 shows, all of which were sold out. It's a film about hope, love, and inspiration in the face of a degenerative illness.
DIRECTED BY: James Keach
METASCORE: 79, based on 13 Critics
*ANIMALS (USA, Not Rated) - Young, dumb and full of drugs, Bobbie and June's life is nothing glamorous. The two live somewhere between homelessness and their imagination. Silly junkies, spoons are for food!
DIRECTED BY: Collin Schiffli
STARRING: David Dastmalchian, Kim Shaw, John Heard
METASCORE: 71, based on 13 Critics
DARK STAR: H.R. GEIGER'S WORLD (Switzerland, Not Rated) - Check out this documentary about the surreal artist H. R. Geiger, the man responsible for the monsters in Ridley Scott's ALIEN and so much more. It weaves a tale of a twisted, jaded, dark man whose art reflects his inner demons and the scars left after his muse's suicide.
DIRECTED BY: Belinda Sallin
METASCORE: 62, based on 13 Critics
BACKCOUNTRY (Canada, R) - It's a thrilling tale of camping in bear country in middle of nowhere Canada. Alex is a pro at woodsy life and stuff but Jenn not so much. Guess which one of them has to face down a bear.
DIRECTED BY: Adam MacDonald
STARRING: Missy Peregrym, Eric Balfour, Nicholas Campbell
METASCORE: 62, based on 12 Critics
FELT (USA, Not Rated) - This feminist thriller is about a woman trying to look past her history of sexual trauma and bad stuff while living in a male dominated world. She meets a, hopefully, nice new guy and they begin the get-to-know-you stuff but is she ready or will her haunting past hinder her ability to enjoy something new and healthy?
DIRECTED BY: Jason Banker
STARRING: Amy Everson, Kentucker Audley, Ryan Creighton
METASCORE: 54, based on 10 Critics
SKIN TRADE (USA, R) - You'll be relieved to know that this movie is not about some black market skin trade, it's about whole human trafficking. Phew, because if it was just the skin that would be gross and wrong - not that the other thing isn't, but you know what I mean.
DIRECTED BY: Ekachai Uekrongtham
STARRING: Dolph Lundgren, Tony Jaa, Michael Jai White, Ron Perlman, Peter Weller
METASCORE: 39, based on 9 Critics
THE HARVEST (USA, Not Rated) - This film claims to be "a refreshingly old-school nerve-jangler with no need for paranormal monsters or flashy special effects." That's what made THE BABADOOK so good, but this sounds like the horror version of THE SECRET GARDEN.
DIRECTED BY: John McNaughton
STARRING: Samantha Morton, Michael Shannon, Natasha Calis, Peter Fonda
METASCORE: 68, based on 8 Critics
