NEW MOVIES!  JULY 22 - JULY 28, 2014
HEAVEN IS FOR REAL (USA, PG) - This is a drama about one boy's near-death experience during which he visits heaven and returns to tell about it. His parents are then charged with a mission: to spread the word. Sorry Ms. Jackson, heaven is fo' real.
DIRECTED BY: Randall Wallace
STARRING: Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly, Jacob Vargas, Nancy Sorel, Thomas Haden Church
METASCORE: 47, based on 26 Critics
TRANSCENDENCE (USA, PG-13) - Much of DARK KNIGHT, etc. director Christopher Nolan's fame is attributable to the talented cinematographer he always uses, Wally Pfister. Well, that guy directed his own movie, and this is it. So it's sure to look very beautiful when anti-technology terrorists nearly destroy the world and A.I. scientist Johnny Depp's consciousness gets trapped in a computer.
DIRECTED BY: Wally Pfister
STARRING: Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Cillian Murphy, Paul Bettany, Morgan Freeman
METASCORE: 42, based on 45 Critics
SABOTAGE (USA, R) - After messing with the wrong drug cartel, the DEA agents are being taken down one by one. This is pretty much a movie about making a bunch of pretty men, like Sawyer from LOST, look ugly. You'll get your money's worth, though, since the front man of this one is none other than the former Governator.
DIRECTED BY: David Ayer
STARRING: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Harold Perrineau, Martin Donovan, Max Martini, Josh Holloway, Mireille Enos
METASCORE: 42, based on 31 Critics
*DOM HEMINGWAY (UK, R) - Jude Law has a lot of fun playing a nasty S.O.B. gangster just released from prison and trying to get back on top in a very different world of crime. Also, he'd better check in with his now all-grown-up daughter, played by Daenerys Targaryen.
DIRECTED BY: Richard Shepard
STARRING: Jude Law, Richard E. Grant, Demián Bichir, Emilia Clarke
METASCORE: 55, based on 37 Critics
^BLUE RUIN (USA, R) - A homeless guy, whose life is still in tatters after his parents were murdered when he was in high school, finds out that the murderer is about to be released on parole. If he thinks that whacking this jailbird is going to get his life back on track, he's sorely mistaken.
DIRECTED BY: Jeremy Saulnier
STARRING: Macon Blair, Devin Ratray, Amy Hargreaves, Kevin Kolack, Eve Plumb
METASCORE: 77, based on 32 Critics
MAKE YOUR MOVE (USA, PG-13) - We bring you yet another dance movie about star-crossed lovers from different dance clubs but, unlike ROMEO & JULIET, nobody dies. They just get really callused feet and show off some sweet dance moves instead of fancy soliloquies. You know what was a great dance movie, aside from STEP UP 2: THE STREETS? MAGIC MIKE - now there's a timeless dance movie.
DIRECTED BY: Duane Adler
STARRING: BoA Kwon, Derek Hough, Will Yun Lee, Wesley Jonathan, Izabella Miko
METASCORE: 40, based on 9 Critics
THE SUSPECT (South Korea, Not Rated) - Dong-chul is on the run and not because he did anything bad like murder - but you never know. He was formerly one of the best North Korean field agents out there until he got left behind once. Then his wife and daughter went missing and his boss got murdered, so now he's out for the truth. According to the Seattle Times, "[It's] one of the best popcorn movies of the year."
DIRECTED BY: Shin-yeon Won
STARRING: Gong Yoo, Park Hee-soon
METASCORE: 64, based on 4 Critics
THE ANGRIEST MAN IN BROOKLYN (USA, R) - Robin Williams is the Brooklyn man who is angry. When mistakenly given three hours to live by his doctor, he takes that to mean he should repair his relationship with his daughter, brother, and ex-wife. However, he's still his grumpy negative self and I'm sure they eventually realize he's not going to die. Let's just see how well this all goes down.
DIRECTED BY: Phil Alden Robinson
STARRING: Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Peter Dinklage, Melissa Leo, James Earl Jones
METASCORE: 21, based on 13 Critics
MAIDENTRIP (Netherlands, Not Rated) - A 14-year-old girl sets sail with just a camera and a dream. Her courageous two-year journey around the world, alone, is nothing short of inspirational. She just wanted to get away from everything and that she did, in the coolest way possible. You'll like this documentary. It'll touch you in the heart.
DIRECTED BY: Jillian Schlesinger
FEATURING: Laura Dekker
METASCORE: 70, based on 12 Critics
ALL CHEERLEADERS DIE (USA, Not Rated) - Here's one of those satirical horror films that tries to make us laugh and scream and challenge our notions about what we expect from a horror movie. I'm not a horror guy, but these genre-mashup movies always tempt me. And unlike most, this one may not disappoint, since director Lucky McKee also did MAY (2002), which is a rare example of this sort of thing actually working.
DIRECTED BY: Lucky McKee / Chris Sivertson
STARRING: Caitlin Stasey, Sianoa Smit-McPhee
METASCORE: 45, based on 12 Critics
MADE IN AMERICA (USA, Not Rated) - Ron Howard and Jay-Z team up for some unknown reason to make the Budweiser Festival awesome. I can't explain this one to you; you just have to watch it if you're interested. There're also performances by Pearl Jam, Skrillex, and Kanye West, if that helps any.
DIRECTED BY: Ron Howard
FEATURING: Jay-Z, Pearl Jam, Odd Future, Dirty Projectors, Skrillex, Santigold, Janelle Monae, Run-DMC
METASCORE: 48, based on 8 Critics
ROAD TO PALOMA (USA, R) - Native American motorcyclist, Wolf, has just murdered the man who killed his mother. He then takes off on his hog across the West. Apparently, that wasn't the best way to handle things because he's followed and someone takes revenge against him. An eye for an eye: the endless cycle. Plus, it's written and directed by its star, the new Conan - or maybe you know him better as Khal Drogo.
DIRECTED BY: Jason Momoa
STARRING: Jason Momoa, Sarah Shahi, Lisa Bonet, Michael Raymond-James, Wes Studi
METASCORE: 44, based on 8 Critics
THE M WORD (USA, R) - It's another Henry Jaglom movie where everyone just talks and talks. It's probably not your kinda thing, unless it is. In which case, have at it. Do you wanna know what the 'M' word is? It's 'menopause.' You're welcome. From what I can understand, it's about a struggling local children's program, and how the star of it decides a good way to stay in business is to do a documentary about her aging mother. What?
DIRECTED BY: Henry Jaglom
STARRING: Tanna Frederick, Michael Imperioli, Corey Feldman, Frances Fisher, Gregory Harrison
METASCORE: 47, based on 7 Critics
JUSTIN AND THE KNIGHTS OF VALOR (Spain, PG) - Here we've got a promising swords-and-monsters kids' movie in the same vein as HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON or something like that. However, it was made in Spain so that's why you've never heard of it. The animation may not be quite as slick as Hollywood might have done it, but take a look at the impressive group of British A-listers they've assembled to voice the English-language version!
DIRECTED BY: Manuel Sicilia
VOICES BY: Freddie Highmore, Antonio Banderas, James Cosmo, Charles Dance, Tamsin Egerton, Rupert Everett, Barry Humphries, Alfred Molina, Mark Strong, David Walliams, Julie Walters, Olivia Williams, Saoirse Ronan
