NEW MOVIES!  FEBRUARY 14 - FEBRUARY 20, 2017

ARRIVAL (USA, PG-13) - Amy Adams is a linguist, which means she's good at language stuff and not just English. Then the alien space crafts start to appear. She is charged with the task of interpreting what they want.
DIRECTED BY: Denis Villeneuve
STARRING: Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, Michael Stuhlbarg, Tzi Ma
METASCORE: 81, based on 52 Critics
*THE EDGE OF SEVENTEEN (USA, R) - This is the latest rated-R coming-of-age story about an awkward high school student trying to navigate the ins and outs of life. Her father was her only real friend, aside from one girl at school who didn't pick on her, but then her dad dies and her best friend sleeps with her bother and everything goes to crap, but it's okay because that's exactly the kind dramatic fodder every caterpillar needs to become a jaded adult butterfly.
DIRECTED BY: Kelly Fremon Craig
STARRING: Hailee Steinfeld, Haley Lu Richardson, Hayden Szeto, Blake Jenner, Woody Harrelson, Kyra Sedgwick
METASCORE: 77, based on 38 Critics
BLEED FOR THIS (USA, R) - Vinny is a world famous boxing champion. Then he gets in an almost fatal car crash and isn't sure he'll ever walk again. *SPOILER ALERT* He does walk again and makes one of the most impressive comebacks in boxing history.
DIRECTED BY: Ben Younger
STARRING: Miles Teller, Aaron Eckhart, Katey Sagal, Ciarán Hinds, Ted Levine
METASCORE: 62, based on 34 Critics
BILLY LYNN'S LONG HALFTIME WALK (USA, R) - 19-year-old Billy comes home from Iraq a hero. This film shows you a series of flashbacks to what actually happened over here. And it's not wrapped up in a neat little package like we'd like to believe.
DIRECTED BY: Ang Lee
STARRING: Joe Alwyn, Kristen Stewart, Garrett Hedlund, Vin Diesel, Steve Martin, Chris Tucker
METASCORE: 53, based on 42 Critics
^CHRISTINE (USA, R) - This is the not-so-upbeat biodrama of Christine Chubbuck, the 1970s reporter. Despite her efforts to advance her career, she remained stagnant and struggled with depression. So she committed suicide on live television and now we all know her name.
DIRECTED BY: Antonio Campos
STARRING: Rebecca Hall, Michael C. Hall, Tracy Letts, Maria Dizzia, J. Smith-Cameron, John Cullum, Timothy Simons
METASCORE: 72, based on 34 Critics
KING COBRA (USA, Not Rated) - This is a crime drama about a gay porn website entrepreneur. Some other dudes want the rights to his biggest star real bad. Were I to say anything further about this movie, it would come out much too raunchy and Bart would just have to censor it anyways so just use your imaginations, folks.
DIRECTED BY: Justin Kelly
STARRING: Garrett Clayton, Christian Slater, Alicia Silverstone, Molly Ringwald, Keegan Allen, James Franco
METASCORE: 48, based on 16 Critics
TWO LOVERS AND A BEAR (Canada, R) - Roman and Lucy live in a little town near the North Pole. Despite it being based in such a cold climate, this is a fiery romantic drama about these two who just want love and peace.
DIRECTED BY: Kim Nguyen
STARRING: Tatiana Maslany, Dane DeHaan
METASCORE: 61, based on 12 Critics
DANNY SAYS (USA, Not Rated) - This is a documentary about Danny Fields. From 1966 on, Dan was an important figure in the careers of bands like The Doors, Lou Reed, The Stooges, the Ramones and many more. He's a big deal and now they are, too.
DIRECTED BY: Brendan Toller
METASCORE: 64, based on 11 Critics
COME WHAT MAY (France, R) - The setting is 1940s France when the Germans came to take over. The people of this small town decide to flee with their mayor Paul leading the way. A whole bunch more stuff is going on but you have to know about history and stuff, so watch it to find out.
DIRECTED BY: Christian Carion
STARRING: August Diehl, Olivier Gourmet, Mathilde Seigner, Matthew Rhys, Alice Isaaz, Jacques Bonnaffé
METASCORE: 45, based on 11 Critics
LIFE ON THE LINE (USA, R) - John Travolta tries to be taken seriously as a power-line worker in this film. I don't buy that for a second, but the whole "storm's a-coming" thing while they are out working seems like it's probably a thing that happens in real life.
DIRECTED BY: David Hackl
STARRING: John Travolta, Kate Bosworth, Devon Sawa, Gil Bellows, Julie Benz, Ryan Robbins, Sharon Stone
METASCORE: 24, based on 10 Critics
BLEAK STREET (Mexico, Not Rated) - Two prostitutes accidently murder wrestling midgets after a kidnapping goes bad. They just wanted a quick buck without the bang but looks like they bit off more than they could chew.
DIRECTED BY: Arturo Ripstein
STARRING: Alberto Estrella, Silvia Pasquel, Arcelia Ramirez
METASCORE: 62, based on 9 Critics
ABATTOIR (USA, R) - After a man murders his sister's entire family, a reporter and a cop team up to solve the mystery of why'd he do it. It's nice to know the why, I guess, but having a reason doesn't really un-kill people. However, I bet he ends up in jail no matter what.
DIRECTED BY: Darren Lynn Bousman
STARRING: Dayton Callie, Jessica Lowndes, Joe Anderson, Lin Shaye, Jay Huguley
METASCORE: 40, based on 9 Critics
JIM: THE JAMES FOLEY STORY (USA, Not Rated) - This is a documentary biography about James Foley, that American journalist who was killed by ISIS in 2014.
DIRECTED BY: Brian Oakes
METASCORE: 73, based on 8 Critics
BATTLE FOR INCHEON: OPERATION CHROMITE (South Korea, Not Rated) - A bunch of soldiers fight in the Korean War. Well, duh. More specifically, they figure in the Incheon battle and that's what this is about, with Liam Neeson as MacArthur.
DIRECTED BY: John H. Lee
STARRING: Lee Jung-jae, Lee Beom-soo, Liam Neeson, Jin Se-yeon
METASCORE: 50, based on 8 Critics
BLACKWAY (USA, R) - A woman returns to her hometown only to be stalked by a crime lord who used to be a cop, so you know he has all the connections. Luckily a logger man comes to her rescue. I feel like the movie just further proves that once you get out of your home town, you should never go back.
DIRECTED BY: Daniel Alfredson
STARRING: Anthony Hopkins, Julia Stiles, Ray Liotta, Alexander Ludwig
METASCORE: 33, based on 3 Critics
