NEW MOVIES!  APRIL 28 - MAY 4, 2015
*PADDINGTON (UK, PG) - Emily summed this one up for us: "So it's about a bear named Paddington who doesn't have a family. So he finds a family to take care of him, but the dad doesn't really like him there. Then the bear gets taken and almost gets stuffed, but then the dad realizes he liked the bear and goes to save him. Then he is safe."
DIRECTED BY: Paul King
STARRING: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Nicole Kidman
METASCORE: 77, based on 38 Critics
^INHERENT VICE (USA, R) - It was about time for a Thomas Pynchon novel to be adapted to film and this one is sure to be a delight. It's set in the '70s, in drug-fueled Los Angeles, long before Greg moved there. One man is looking up his old girlfriend. He's not just any dude though; he's a detective and the woman he is in search of appears to be missing. Bart asked that I refer to this movie as "THE BIG LEBOWSLEEP," but if you want to know what that means, you're gonna have to ask him yourself.
DIRECTED BY: Paul Thomas Anderson
STARRING: Joaquin Phoenix, Josh Brolin, Owen Wilson, Katherine Waterston, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio del Toro, Jena Malone, Joanna Newsom, Martin Short
METASCORE: 81, based on 43 Critics
THE GAMBLER (USA, R) - Marky Mark is back and he's racked himself up some serious debt to the wrong bookies. He calls up his mom and is all, "Mommmmy, they're gonna break my legs if I can't come up with the money by 5 'clock." Like any well-meaning but ultimately enabling mother, she tries to bail him out. But bad stuff still happens.
DIRECTED BY: Rupert Wyatt
STARRING: Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Michael K. Williams, Jessica Lange
METASCORE: 55, based on 40 Critics
THE BOY NEXT DOOR (USA, R) - JLo is back and starring in this thriller about a married woman who recently found out her husband has been unfaithful. So she strikes up a torrid love affair with the strapping young neighbor. Things turn dangerous bad and something must be done about it. This seems like one of those movies where there're a lot of shots at night and I bet it rains a lot for dramatic effect.
DIRECTED BY: Rob Cohen
STARRING: Jennifer Lopez, Ryan Guzman, John Corbett, Ian Nelson, Kristin Chenoweth
METASCORE: 30, based on 33 Critics
THE WEDDING RINGER (USA, R) - When this socially awkward dude is planning his wedding to dream girl Kaley Coolie, he runs into problems because there is nobody to be his best man. Luckily there is this service offered where they'll set you up with a totally cool dude to pretend to be your BFF and best man so you don't look like a dope on your wedding day. Watch this wedding comedy and find out how well this plan actually works out and observe the hilarity that ensues as a result.
DIRECTED BY: Jeremy Garelick
STARRING: Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting, Alan Ritchson, Cloris Leachman, Mimi Rogers
METASCORE: 35, based on 27 Critics
MOMMY (Canada, R) - Widowed and single, Mommy is tasked with raising her teenage son all on her own. Even under normal circumstances it takes a village to do so. But this kid struggles with ADHD and other emotional problems which result in unpredictable violent outbursts, so it'll take a large amount of patience and understanding for this woman to do it herself.
DIRECTED BY: Xavier Dolan
STARRING: Anne Dorval, Antoine-Olivier Pilon, Suzanne Clément
METASCORE: 74, based on 34 Critics
LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM (USA, Not Rated) - It's the LAST DAYS IN VIETNAM and some big war decisions need to be made. For those of you who like live re-in-action historical documentaries, this is probably one of those new films you don't want to miss. Be wary though. Viewing of this film might give you 'Nam flashbacks whether you were there or not.
DIRECTED BY: Rory Kennedy
METASCORE: 86, based on 19 Critics
ACCIDENTAL LOVE (USA, PG-13) - Originally, this movie directed by David O. Russell, like, 7 years ago but it got shelved. Only recently did someone remember it and put in the dough to finish it off, but Russell had his name removed from it. However, since he did stuff like SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK and AMERICAN HUSTLE, there's a chance this will be half a decent film. It's basically about Jessica Biel with a nail in her head and the two different guys she has the hots for.
DIRECTED BY: Stephen Greene (David O. Russell)
STARRING: Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal, Catherine Keener, James Marsden, Tracy Morgan, James Brolin
METASCORE: 20, based on 10 Critics
PELICAN DREAMS (USA, G) - This film is not just about the pelican who was arrested on the Golden Gate bridge and taken to rehab. It shows us a glimpse into the daily life and rituals of a wild pelican. It also looks at how we can help rehabilitate these majestic birds when need be without disrupting the integrity of their wildness.
DIRECTED BY: Judy Irving
METASCORE: 66, based on 9 Critics
THE DEVIL'S VIOLINIST (Italy, R) - This is a biodrama about an Italian violinist and composer named Niccolò Paganini who got real famous in the 19th century. Just like golf, orchestra has its scandals, and this womanizing virtuoso is proof. It just goes to show that being really, really good at something doesn't make you a good person.
DIRECTED BY: Bernard Rose
STARRING: David Garrett, Jared Harris, Joely Richardson
METASCORE: 38, based on 7 Critics
SUPREMACY (USA, Not Rated) - Cut out of the group and left alone in the world as a violent white supremacist, this dude's list of crimes grow. The home he invites himself into is not the one he was hoping for. The hostage he takes in is an ex-con himself. Sometimes understanding the mind of a racist can be useful. If you want to see Danny Glover as an ex-con doing some psych work to stay alive, check it out.
DIRECTED BY: Deon Taylor
STARRING: Joe Anderson, Dawn Olivieri, Derek Luke, Evan Ross, Lela Rochon, Mahershala Ali, Julie Benz, Anson Mount, Danny Glover

METASCORE: 28, based on 6 Critics
BOY MEETS GIRL (USA, Not Rated) - Did you hear that Bruce Jenner is a lady now? *SEGUE* This one is about twentysomethings Robby, this dude, and Ricky, a transgender gal. When Ricky strikes up a gal on gal friendship, Robby realizes he has kinda liked her all along. Don't worry pal, she swings both ways so you might still be in luck. This whole thing sounds kinda risqué for Kentucky.
DIRECTED BY: Eric Schaeffer
STARRING: Michelle Hendley, Michael Welch
METASCORE: 68, based on 4 Critics
