NEW MOVIES!  OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 3, 2014
BEGIN AGAIN (USA, R) - A young aspiring musician and a disgraced music-biz executive meet by chance. They grow and learn together and it's a touching little story which the Rolling Stone refers to as, "irresistible, funny and romantic." It's one of the movies this week we have more than one copy of so you should probs rent it, because everyone else is doing it.
DIRECTED BY: John Carney
STARRING: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Adam Levine, Catherine Keener, Hailee Steinfeld, James Corden, CeeLo Green, Mos Def
METASCORE: 62, based on 39 Critics
*WISH I WAS HERE (USA, R) - Written, directed, and starring Zach Braff, this movie answers the prayers of all you GARDEN STATE fans. He plays a father of three who finds himself at a crossroads in life. How he deals with this pre-midlife crisis is exactly what this movie is about. I have to say I rather enjoyed it.
DIRECTED BY: Zach Braff
STARRING: Zach Braff, Josh Gad, Ashley Greene, Kate Hudson, Joey King, Mandy Patinkin
METASCORE: 43, based on 34 Critics
DELIVER US FROM EVIL (USA, R) - In this horror thriller, a cop is investigating some crime. He joins forces with a priest because there seems to be some unnatural creepiness present. There's also talk of possession and exorcistery.
DIRECTED BY: Scott Derrickson
STARRING: Eric Bana, Édgar Ramírez, Sean Harris, Olivia Munn, Joel McHale
METASCORE: 40, based on 32 Critics
LIFE OF CRIME (USA, R) - Two bad guys kidnap the wife of a business man with lots of mullah. Things get quirky and start to go wrong, as per usual in crime-coms, yet they still try to get ransom money.
DIRECTED BY: Daniel Schechter
STARRING: Jennifer Aniston, Yasiin Bey, Isla Fisher, Will Forte, Mark Boone Jr., Tim Robbins, John Hawkes
METASCORE: 60, based on 28 Critics
^LOS ANGELES PLAYS ITSELF (USA, Not Rated) - Bart got real excited about this one. You should make him explain it.
DIRECTED BY: Thom Andersen
METASCORE: 86, based on 19 Critics
A COFFEE IN BERLIN (Germany, Not Rated) - A young man drops out of college to wander around Berlin. The man is trying to find his place in the world. It's described as a tragicomedy by IMDb and sometimes compared to early Woody Allen or Jim Jarmusch, if that helps you decide whether or not to watch it.
DIRECTED BY: Jan Ole Gerster
STARRING: Tom Schilling, Marc Hosemann, Friederike Kempter
METASCORE: 63, based on 19 Critics
CHILD OF GOD (USA, R) - This is the story of a man who chooses to live outside the norms of society. He's an outlaw of sorts, not a hippie, so just know that going into it. It's based on a Cormac McCarthy novel and also James Franco is in it, so you know it's a movie.
DIRECTED BY: James Franco
STARRING: Scott Haze, Tim Blake Nelson, James Franco, Jim Parrack, Jeremy Ambler, Fallon Goodson, Vince Jolivette, Brian Lally
METASCORE: 50, based on 17 Critics
MOEBIUS (USA, Not Rated) - A husband's affair angers his wife. Dire, but not fatal, consequences result for their son, through no fault of his own. Someone tries to kill someone else but I don't think it happens. Increasingly upsetting and disturbing things occur. It's a Korean film, if that helps this review make any sense.
DIRECTED BY: Ki-duk Kim
STARRING: Jo Jae-hyun, Seo Young-joo, Lee Eun-woo
METASCORE: 66, based on 16 Critics
RUNNING FROM CRAZY (USA, Not Rated) - In this documentary about Muriel Hemingway, the actress, model, and grandchild of Ernest (as in Ernest Hemingway), you learn about the family's history of mental illness and suicide and lots of other thrilling trivia.
DIRECTED BY: Barbara Kopple
STARRING: Jack Hemingway, Langley Crisman, Margaux Hemingway, Mariel Hemingway, Bobby Williams
METASCORE: 59, based on 14 Critics
DORMANT BEAUTY (Italy, Not Rated) - This is an interesting drama about a bunch of different people and stories all having to do with the meaning of life and seeking answers to big questions. It all revolves around a woman in a 17 year coma and it's trying too hard, but it just might get there.
DIRECTED BY: Marco Bellocchio
STARRING: Toni Servillo, Alba Rohrwacher, Isabelle Huppert, Maya Sansa
METASCORE: 72, based on 12 Critics
GOOD PEOPLE (USA, R) - Dude! James Franco is showing up in all the movies these days. He's like the new Nicholas Cage, except totally different, and arguably way crazier. This is about him and his girl finding money in a dead guy's apartment and then someone comes after them.
DIRECTED BY: Henrik Ruben Genz
STARRING: James Franco, Kate Hudson, Omar Sy, Tom Wilkinson, Anna Friel
METASCORE: 42, based on 10 Critics
SIDDHARTH (India, Not Rated) - A street zipper fixer man sends his child, Siddharth, away to work because he has little money to provide for his son. His son does not return home when he's supposed to and he realizes the boy has been taken by child smugglers. The devastated father travels all over India in search of the men who stole his kid.
DIRECTED BY: Richie Mehta
STARRING: Rajesh Tailang, Tannishtha Chatterjee
METASCORE: 71, based on 9 Critics
NUCLEAR NATION (Japan, Not Rated) - This documentary follows refugees from Japan after that weather thing hit. In 2011, there was a really big tsunami that was really tragic and inconvenient for the Japanese. It was a big deal; you probably remember hearing about it.
DIRECTED BY: Atsushi Funahashi
METASCORE: 69, based on 8 Critics
BENEATH (USA, Not Rated) - Here's a horror movie about coal miners stuck below ground. That in and of itself sounds horrifying to me and it seems to happen far too often. Then the monsters show up. It's inspired by true events; go figure.
DIRECTED BY: Ben Ketai
STARRING: Brent Briscoe, Kurt Caceres, Eric Etebari, Jeff Fahey
METASCORE: 34, based on 8 Critics
BEHAVING BADLY (USA, R) - Being a Disney star really does a number on girls. Selena Gomez is yet another example of what I mean. She also stars in this film about being the dream girl for some high school boy. It's a comedy and I'm just gonna tell you it sucks.
DIRECTED BY: Tim Garrick
STARRING: Nat Wolff, Selena Gomez, Mary-Louise Parker, Elisabeth Shue, Dylan McDermott, Lachlan Buchanan, Heather Graham, Ashley Rickards, Jason Lee, Austin Stowell, Cary Elwes, Patrick Warburton, Gary Busey
METASCORE: 18, based on 7 Critics
BOUND BY FLESH (USA, Not Rated) - Here's a documentary about being a sideshow act - specifically Daisy and Violet Hilton, the conjoined twins who rose to infamy during the beginning of the 20th century. It's not a happy tale, as they were exploited and had to sue the circus to try and gain their freedom. At least they had each other?
DIRECTED BY: Leslie Zemeckis
METASCORE: 68, based on 6 Critics
THE PRINCE (USA, R) - This is just your typical action thriller. A kidnapped daughter, a rivalry with a former friend, a retired assassin who must return to his old life one last time. Boring sauce.
DIRECTED BY: Brian A Miller
STARRING: Jason Patric, Bruce Willis, John Cusack, Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, Rain, Jessica Lowndes, Gia Mantegna
METASCORE: 17, based on 6 Critics
LFO (Sweden, Not Rated) - A man learns how to hypnotize people with sound. He tries it out in the neighborhood and then the world. Mankind is suddenly in danger. This sci-fi comedy drama is sure to please if you're into Bart movies.
DIRECTED BY: Antonio Tublen
STARRING: Patrik Karlson, Izabella Jo Tschig, Per Löfberg
YOU AND THE NIGHT (France, Unrated) - If you love French films and orgies, this one's right up your alley, because that's exactly what this is. If you know anything about the band M83, they had a lot to do with this movie getting made.
DIRECTED BY: Yann Gonzalez
STARRING: Kate Moran, Niels Schneider, Nicolas Maury, Eric Cantona, Fabienne Babe, Alain Fabien Delon, Julie Brémond, Béatrice Dalle
THE FORGOTTEN KINGDOM (Lesotho, Not Rated) - One man must leave his cushy life in the city and travel to his birth land to bury his father's ashes. He makes friends with an orphan sheep herder and has a wonderfully dramatic time learning about himself and his heritage.
DIRECTED BY: Andrew Mudge
STARRING: Moshoeshoe Chabeli, Lillian Dube, Jerry Mofokeng
DEATH COMES TO PEMBERLEY (UK, Not Rated) - This British mini-series, based on a sequel to PRIDE & PREJUDICE which was written one or two hundred years later, is about some women with British names getting ready for a ball, until it is suddenly brought to an end. Drama, mystery, and accents ensue.
DIRECTED BY: Daniel Percival
STARRING: Matthew Rhys, Anna Maxwell Martin, Jenna Coleman, Matthew Goode, Trevor Eve
