NEW MOVIES!  JUNE 6 - JUNE 12, 2017

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST (USA, PG) - Now that CGI has gotten to the point where live-action movies and animated movies are practically indistinguishable, remaking a lovely hand-drawn Disney classic like this seems even more unnecessary than ever.
DIRECTED BY: Bill Condon
STARRING: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Josh Gad, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Audra McDonald, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Nathan Mack, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson
METASCORE: 65, based on 47 Critics
A CURE FOR WELLNESS (USA, R) - Gore Verbinski, mastermind behind the original PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN trilogy, had a major flop on his hands with THE LONE RANGER. He not-so-triumphantly returns with this visually snazzy SHUTTER ISLAND-like mental institution horror-thriller, which stars Dane DeHaan in his usual "Leonardo DiCaprio, only more emotionally unstable"-type role.
DIRECTED BY: Gore Verbinski
STARRING: Dane DeHaan, Jason Isaacs, Mia Goth
METASCORE: 47, based on 40 Critics
A UNITED KINGDOM (UK, PG-13) - All you have to do is look at the black man and the white woman on the poster and know that it's set in 1948 for you to know what the story is here. Add to that the fact that he's the king of Botswana and she’s just a regular British lady you've got a no-miss based-on-a-true-story classic from the director of BELLE.
DIRECTED BY: Amma Asante
STARRING: David Oyelowo, Rosamund Pike, Terry Pheto, Jack Davenport, Tom Felton, Abena Ayivor, Vusi Kunene
METASCORE: 65, based on 41 Critics
THE SENSE OF AN ENDING (UK, PG-13) - 45 YEARS and LE WEEK-END were really great movies about how mistakes of the distant past can still weigh heavily on the long-term relationships of older folks. This movie is along the same lines, but not quite as good. It’s from the director of THE LUNCHBOX, though, so that’s something.
DIRECTED BY: Ritesh Batra
STARRING: Jim Broadbent, Charlotte Rampling, Harriet Walter, Emily Mortimer, Michelle Dockery
METASCORE: 61, based on 24 Critics
THE LAST WORD (USA, R) - Shirley MacLaine is an important businesswoman who’s dying but wants to be remembered the right way, so sets out to write her own obituary. Amanda Seyfried, as the journalist assigned to help her with the task, discovers she really isn’t the awful control-freak everyone thinks she is.
DIRECTED BY: Mark Pellington
STARRING: Shirley MacLaine, Amanda Seyfried, Anne Heche, Tom Everett Scott, Thomas Sadoski, Joel Murray, Adina Porter, Phillip Baker Hall
METASCORE: 40, based on 21 Critics
^LAND OF MINE (Denmark, R) - The Danes use German prisoners of war to diffuse the thousands land mines the Nazis planted all along the shoreline. Trouble is, a lot of these soldiers are teenagers and a lot of them are getting blown up, making the Nazi-hater in charge of the operation start to feel bad for them.
DIRECTED BY: Martin Zandvliet
STARRING: Roland Møller, Mikkel Følsgaard
METASCORE: 75, based on 24 Critics
THE ASSIGNMENT (USA, R) - A hitman wakes up to find that a nefarious gender-reassignment surgeon played by Sigourney Weaver has turned him into a woman. Now he’s Michelle Rodriguez and he’s out for revenge. This low-budget thriller from the director of THE WARRIORS and the surprisingly cool BULLET TO THE HEAD sounds just crazy enough to be awesome.
DIRECTED BY: Walter Hill
STARRING: Michelle Rodriguez, Tony Shalhoub, Anthony LaPaglia, Caitlin Gerard, Sigourney Weaver
METASCORE: 34, based on 20 Critics
AFTERMATH (USA, R) - Arnie loses his wife and daughter in a fatal plane crash and he blames the air traffic controller for letting it happen. But when he sets out to get some payback, he finds that the guilt has kinda made the air traffic controller lose his marbles. Now Arnie has to decide whether to harm or help the guy.
DIRECTED BY: Elliott Lester
STARRING: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Scoot McNairy, Maggie Grace, Martin Donovan
METASCORE: 44, based on 13 Critics
THE TICKET (USA, Not Rated) - In the Dan Stevens movie this week where he doesn’t have to wear Beast makeup the whole time, he plays a nice blind man who regains his sight and becomes a real jerk, obsessed with worldly possessions and stuff. I think it’s some kind of metaphor.
DIRECTED BY: Ido Fluk
STARRING: Dan Stevens, Malin Åkerman, Kerry Bishé, Oliver Platt, Liza J. Bennett, Skylar Gaertne
METASCORE: 52, based on 12 Critics
VOICE FROM THE STONE (USA, R) - This ghost story/thriller stars Daenerys Targaryen without her blonde hair as an American nurse in ‘50s Tuscany. She has to care for a mute boy who hasn’t spoken since his mother died and I’m guessing there’s some supernatural reason for it.
DIRECTED BY: Eric D. Howell
STARRING: Emilia Clarke, Marton Csokas, Caterina Murino, Remo Girone, Lisa Gastoni, Edward George Dring
METASCORE: 42, based on 7 Critics
JOURNEY TO THE WEST: THE DEMONS STRIKE BACK (China, PG-13) - JOURNEY TO THE WEST is one of the greatest classics of Chinese literature, but until Stephen Chow came along, nobody’s ever tried to adapt more than a few bits and pieces of the long book to the screen. This second of who knows how many parts follows on JOURNEY TO THE WEST: CONQUERING THE DEMONS and is written by Chow, but has a whole new cast and is directed by Tsui Hark, the guy behind many of Hong Kong’s best wuxia films.
DIRECTED BY: Hark Tsui
STARRING: Kris Wu, Lin Gengxin, Yao Chen, Lin Yun
METASCORE: 59, based on 4 Critics
*ALL NIGHTER (USA, R) - J.K. Simmons does his funny/intimidating sarcastic thing again playing a dad who can’t locate his twenty-something daughter, so he enlists the help of her wussy bluegrass-playing ex-boyfriend. Get ready for some wacky road movie misadventures and such.
DIRECTED BY: Gavin Wiesen
STARRING: Emile Hirsch, J. K. Simmons, Taran Killam, Kristen Schaal, Analeigh Tipton
METASCORE: 37, based on 4 Critics
