NEW MOVIES!  FEBRUARY 24 - MARCH 2, 2015
BIG HERO 6 (USA, PG) - Emily informs me that this is about, "a boy named Hero who has a brother. His brother goes to college in a lab and creates a giant marshmallow who is actually a robot. The marshbot is like a nurse, and he only goes home once you say, 'I am satisfied with my care.'"
DIRECTED BY: Don Hall / Chris Williams
VOICES BY: Scott Adsit, Ryan Potter, Daniel Henney, T. J. Miller, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans, Jr., Génesis Rodríguez, James Cromwell, Alan Tudyk, Maya Rudolph
METASCORE: 74, based on 38 Critics
HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 (USA, R) - Jennifer Aniston is still a terrible boss and poor Charlie Day (ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA) continues to suffer under her dental hygienic wrath. Also, you get Jason Bateman, so you know it's gonna be one of those darkly funny films. If you liked the first one and have been holding out for the sequel, hold no longer for it has arrived.
DIRECTED BY: Sean Anders
STARRING: Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Chris Pine, Kevin Spacey, Christoph Waltz
METASCORE: 40, based on 36 Critics
^WHIPLASH (USA, R) - This one's about a drum prodigy who joins an extra extremely exclusive group of music peeps and is verbally and mentally abused by his teacher. That sounds an awful lot like a jazz camp my friend went to in Uptown New York, or Downtown... Oh, I don't remember where, but it was somewhere in New York.
DIRECTED BY: Damien Chazelle
STARRING: Miles Teller, J. K. Simmons, Paul Reiser
METASCORE: 88, based on 49 Critics
BEYOND THE LIGHTS (USA, PG-13) - The world’s newest superstar, Noni, is starting to feel the pressure of being on top. Unlike the guy in the Greek movie I talk about later, she's not cut out for the full effect of the limelight. However, a nice, normal boy (whom Bart informs me lived in Bath, Maine in real life) comes along and uses his love magic to help her get a grip.
DIRECTED BY: Gina Prince-Bythewood
STARRING: Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Minnie Driver, Nate Parker, Danny Glover
METASCORE: 73, based on 25 Critics
STRAY DOGS (Taiwan, Not Rated) – This is an arty art film for arty people who like art. A single dad flies a sign to make ends meet, but it's one of those discount mattress signs, not a "Will Work For Food"-type sign. Dad starts to lose his cookies and some lady in a supermarket ends up taking his kids under her bird wings, although she's a human.
DIRECTED BY: Tsai Ming Liang
STARRING: Lee Kang-sheng, Lu Yi-ching, Chen Shiang-chyi
METASCORE: 84, based on 14 Critics
NAS: TIME IS ILLMATIC (USA, Not Rated) - This is about Nas and the making of his debut hipadehop album back in those '90s. It may seem like a very specific subject for a feature length documentary, but it's an awfully important album, one that reinvented East Coat hip hop with its captivating storytelling about urban poverty. Did you know Nas is his real name, not just a rapper name he picked out?
DIRECTED BY: One9
METASCORE: 72, based on 14 Critics
THROUGH A LENS DARKLY (USA, Not Rated) - Black history month isn't over yet and here's a movie that fully exposes you to "the semi-secret history of African American photo imagery," according to the Village Voice. It's also "a wise and passionate guide to an inexhaustibly fascinating subject," according to A.O. Scott from the New York Times.
DIRECTED BY: Thomas Allen Harris
METASCORE: 64, based on 11 Critics
THE ETERNAL RETURN OF ANTONIS PARASKEVAS (Greece, Not Rated) - Antonis loves the limelight and can't really function without it. It's like his anti-kryptonite. He stages a kidnapping to gain public sympathy and get his name all talked about and stuff. It's Greek, but his morals are relatable to an American audience.
DIRECTED BY: Elina Psikou
STARRING: Christos Stergioglou, Syllas Tzoumerkas
FORTY YEARS FROM YESTERDAY (USA, Not Rated) - A man loses his wife after 40 years of marriage. This film seeks to look at and make you think about those big life issues we all must tackle - mainly, love and loss. Those are the big dramatic ones that look good when shown through a sepia-toned lens.
DIRECTED BY: Robert Machoian / Rodrigo Ojeda-Beck
STARRING: Bruce Graham, Suzette Graham, Robert Eddington, Wyatt Eddington
   
*TRAITORS (Morocco, Not Rated) - A female punk rocker is trying to keep her family from being evicted. Money's tight, ends are not meeting, so... she joins up with a drug mule to run some product and make some quick cash. Time is money, though, so they better run and not get caught. Although, there’s no rent to worry about in the big house.
DIRECTED BY: Sean Gullette
STARRING: Chaimae Ben Acha, Soufia Issami, Mourade Zeguendi
