NEW MOVIES!  SEPTEMBER 30 - OCTOBER 6, 2014
TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION (USA, PG-13) - They made a fourth one. Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox are not in it. Marky Mark stars, though, so it may be worth it just for that.
DIRECTED BY: Michael Bay
STARRING: Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Nicola Peltz, Kelsey Grammer, Jack Reynor, Sophia Myles
METASCORE: 32, based on 37 Critics
CHEF (USA, R) - When Carl Casper gets fired from his day job as a chef, he decides to open up a food truck. He also decides to use this opportunity to reunite with his estranged family. This one's a crowd-pleaser, folks, so start lining up now.
DIRECTED BY: Jon Favreau
STARRING: Jon Favreau, Sofía Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Robert Downey, Jr.
METASCORE: 68, based on 36 Critics
^IDA (Poland, PG-13) - A young Polish woman about to become a nun discovers a dark family secret dating back to the time of the Nazis. This movie's gotten raves from everybody, so even if you're a little scared of subtitles and black & white movies you should check it out - especially since it's only 82 minutes long.
DIRECTED BY: Pawel Pawlikowski
STARRING: Agata Trzebuchowska, Agata Kulesza, Joanna Kulig
METASCORE: 89, based on 34 Critics
THIRD PERSON (USA, R) - Paul Haggis thinks just because he won an Oscar for CRASH that he can just throw a bunch of big name actors and actresses into a movie and people will love it. Nope. This movie about three different lovers in three different cities will not be your favorite movie ever.
DIRECTED BY: Paul Haggis
STARRING: Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Moran Atias, Kim Basinger, Maria Bello
METASCORE: 37, based on 31 Critics
COLD IN JULY (USA, R) - This psychological thriller stars Don Johnston, who is still hot and drives a cool car. It's also starring Michael C. Hall who's a little murdery, as per usual. And then you've got Sam Shepard, who's been playing a lot of scummy absent dads lately. They all get to spill a lot of blood in this movie.
DIRECTED BY: Jim Mickle
STARRING: Michael C. Hall, Sam Shepard, Don Johnson, Nick Damici
METASCORE: 73, based on 30 Critics
HELLION (USA, R) - Here's yet another new movie starring Aaron Paul from BREAKING BAD. This time plays an emotionally withdrawn father of two boys, one of which is taken away by Child Protective Services. In order to get his boy back and be a better dad, Aaron must learn to do things differently. Somehow, dirt bike racing is involved.
DIRECTED BY: Kat Candler
STARRING: Aaron Paul, Juliette Lewis, Josh Wiggins, Deke Garner, Jonny Mars, Annalee Jefferies
METASCORE: 55, based on 24 Critics
ARE YOU HERE (USA, R) - Owen Wilson and Zach Galifianakis are BFFs from childhood. When one of them inherits a buttload of money from his deceased father, they take off on a bro'd trip for their hometown to claim it. Even with the MAD MEN creator in charge and a prolonged cameo from Amy Poehler, nobody seems to like this one much.
DIRECTED BY: Matthew Weiner
STARRING: Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis, Amy Poehler
METASCORE: 37, based on 22 Critics
LUCKY THEM (USA, R) - Toni Collette from UNITED STATES OF TARA (the TV show) and Australia (the continent) stars in this drama as a journalist who is hired to track down her rock star ex-boyfriend. At some point Thomas Haden Church shows up and the sparks really fly between the two, enlivening an otherwise insubstantial movie.
DIRECTED BY: Megan Griffiths
STARRING: Toni Collette, Ahna O'Reilly, Thomas Haden Church, Amy Seimetz, Joanne Woodward, Oliver Platt, Lynn Shelton, Ryan Eggold, Nina Arianda, Johnny Depp
METASCORE: 65, based on 19 Critics
IVORY TOWER (USA, PG-13) - Here's a documentary that weighs the pros and cons of higher education in the United States. This is one that's certainly worth checking out, unless you're totally fine with paying a fortune for an education that probably won't get you much closer to landing an awesome job.
DIRECTED BY: Andrew Rossi
METASCORE: 65, based on 19 Critics
THE LAST OF THE UNJUST (Austria, PG-13) - The maker of the most notable of all holocaust documentaries, SHOAH, returns with a new one about the fake Czech ghetto that Adolf Eichmann used to trick people into believing the Jews were being treated well. It's told from the perspective of Benjamin Murmelstein, a Jewish Elder who successfully negotiated with Eichmann to save many thousands of lives.
DIRECTED BY: Claude Lanzmann
METASCORE: 78, based on 17 Critics
DECODING ANNIE PARKER (USA, R) - This is a drama about almost discovering the cure for cancer. It's also a story of love, diseases, and other adult themes. The talented cast (plus Jesse from BREAKING BAD, yet again) manages to raise this one above the level of Lifetime movie-of-the-week.
DIRECTED BY: Steven Bernstein
STARRING: Samantha Morton, Helen Hunt, Aaron Paul, Rashida Jones, Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, Bob Gunton, Alice Eve, Maggie Grace
METASCORE: 56, based on 11 Critics
SPACE STATION 76 (USA, R) - This intentionally campy spoof of retro sci-fi shows is summed up on IMDb as, "A 1970s version of the future, where personalities and asteroids collide." Surprisingly, the movie turns out to be one of the more depressing and profound examinations of human relationships to come around in a while, as well as being really funny.
DIRECTED BY: Jack Plotnick
STARRING: Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Matt Bomer, Marisa Coughlan, Kylie Rogers, Kali Rocha, Jerry O'Connell, Keir Dullea
METASCORE: 49, based on 10 Critics
WOLF (Netherlands, Not Rated) - This is a movie about gangsters in the Netherlands. They're pretty involved in the underground world of boxing, but also in the world of murdering. But these things are practically synonymous anyway, right?
DIRECTED BY: Jim Taihuttu
STARRING: Chemseddine Amar, Mark Catuogno, Steef Cuijpers
METASCORE: 52, based on 5 Critics
XINGU (Brazil, Not Rated) - Even way back in the '40s people were trying to save the Amazon rainforest and protect its indigenous people. This is the story of three brothers who tried to do just that back then.
DIRECTED BY: Cao Hamburger
STARRING: João Miguel, Felipe Camargo, Caio Blat
METASCORE: 46, based on 4 Critics
FOUND. (USA, Unrated) - A boy obsessed with murder learns that his older brother is a serial killer.
DIRECTED BY: Scott Schirmer
STARRING: Gavin Brown, Ethan Philbeck, Phyllis Munro, Louie Lawless
METASCORE: 41, based on 4 Critics
*SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY (USA, Not Rated) - A young pregnant woman in Brooklyn is mad at the world because she can't pay her rent and her grocery store co-workers are mean and her recovering alcoholic mom and punk lesbian sister aren't supportive enough. If you're not bothered by low budgets and being offended, then this total winner of a film is for you.
DIRECTED BY: Drew Tobia
STARRING: Eleanore Pienta, Dana Eskelson, Molly Plunk
METASCORE: 83, based on 3 Critics
LINES OF WELLINGTON (Portugal, Not Rated) - Just because this movie is about the most important event in Portuguese history doesn't mean that anyone else in the world is going to care about it. I'm not sure what nationality John Malkovich is pretending to be in it but it's definitely not American.
DIRECTED BY: Valeria Sarmiento
STARRING: John Malkovich, Soraia Chaves, Vincent Pérez, Marisa Paredes, Melvil Poupaud, Mathieu Amalric, Jemima West, Catherine Deneuve, Isabelle Huppert, Chiara Mastroianni, Michel Piccoli
THE MAN WHO WILL COME (Italy, Not Rated) - A young girl takes a vow of silence after the death of her younger brother. She and her pregnant mother live in Italy during the time of the Nazis. The day her mother gives birth just so happens to fall on same as day as the infamous round up of civilians which came to be known as the Marzabotto massacre.
DIRECTED BY: Giorgio Diritti
STARRING: Maya Sansa, Alba Rohrwacher, Claudio Casadio, Greta Zuccheri Montanari
   
WER (USA, R) - The title of this movie is pronounced "where" as in "werewolf," but they couldn't spell it "W-E-R-E" because then people would think it was pronounced "were," as in "used to be." It's about a lawyer whose client supposedly killed some people, but it's beginning to look like there's more to it than that.
DIRECTED BY: William Brent Bell
STARRING: A.J. Cook, Brian Scott O'Connor, Simon Quarterman, Sebastian Roché, Vik Sahay
