NEW MOVIES!  MAY 19 - MAY 25, 2015
AMERICAN SNIPER (USA, R) - 'Merica bang! bang!
DIRECTED BY: Clint Eastwood
STARRING: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Luke Grimes, Kyle Gallner, Sam Jaeger, Jake McDorman, Cory Hardrict
METASCORE: 72, based on 48 Critics
HOT TUB TIME MACHINE 2 (USA, R) - So they made a sequel, but it looks like John Cusack wanted no part of it. So they replaced him with Adam Scott. But Adam's performance is so good you'll be left asking yourself, "Cusack who?" As redonk as the first movie was, I feel like it's totally fine that this one exists since, after all, there are three too many HANGOVER movies.
DIRECTED BY: Steve Pink
STARRING: Rob Corddry, Craig Robinson, Clark Duke, Adam Scott, Chevy Chase, Gillian Jacobs
METASCORE: 29, based on 31 Critics
STRANGE MAGIC (USA, PG) - This magical tale of fairies and royalty was pretty much the brainchild of George Lucas. Man, that dude is really weird and pretty awesome, but this kids' flick didn't receive. Some princess swears off love but it finds its way into her heart anyway. Isn't that always how it goes?
DIRECTED BY: Gary Rydstrom
VOICES BY: Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina
METASCORE: 24, based on 19 Critics
^LEVIATHAN (Russia, R) - This poor Russian dude in a small Russian town is trying to fight The Man. He was informed by the mayor that his house will be demolished to make way for something. Well, this guy likes his house, he likes his nest, in his opinion, in all the world his house is best, and he totally doesn't want to lose it.
DIRECTED BY: Andrey Zvyagintsev
STARRING: Aleksei Serebryakov, Elena Lyadova, Vladimir Vdovichenkov
METASCORE: 92, based on 34 Critics
THE BLUE ROOM (France, R) - Two adulterous lovers are doing the nasty and then all of a sudden someone brings up murder. I mean, yeah, if you're gonna be with someone, you probably shouldn't be married to somebody else. But murdering your spouse so you can get your rocks off guilt-free doesn't make much sense - especially in France.
DIRECTED BY: Mathieu Amalric
STARRING: Mathieu Amalric, Léa Drucker, Stéphanie Cléau
METASCORE: 72, based on 25 Critics
GIRLHOOD (France, Not Rated) - Marieme is fed up with her crappy life so she joins an inner city Paris chick gang. She starts stealing to be accepted by her new terrible people peers and eventually starts to realize she has made a grievous error in judgment and nothing in her new life is better than her old life. Let's see what she chooses to do in this rough-around-the-edges coming-of-age tale.
DIRECTED BY: Celine Sciamma
STARRING: Karidja Touré, Assa Sylla, Lindsay Karamoh, Mariétou Touré
METASCORE: 85, based on 21 Critics
CYMBELINE (USA, R) - I've heard this Shakespeare adaptation described as SONS OF ANARCHY meets GAME OF THRONES. The cops and the outlaws butt heads a whole bunch and there's lots of action and drama. It actually seems like a really decent one for your entertainment.
DIRECTED BY: Michael Almereyda
STARRING: Ethan Hawke, Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, John Leguizamo, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson
METASCORE: 54, based on 15 Critics
*BEFORE I DISAPPEAR (USA, Not Rated) - This is the grungy downer tale of a dude on the verge of utter and hopeless self-destruction. He's at rock bottom and about to give up hope for any good to ever come back in his life, when out of the blue his sister pleads with him to watch his niece for a while and a little bit of light shines into his dark, broken world.
DIRECTED BY: Shawn Christensen
STARRING: Shawn Christensen, Fátima Ptacek, Emmy Rossum, Paul Wesley, Richard Schiff, Ron Perlman
METASCORE: 47, based on 13 Critics
TWO MEN IN TOWN (USA, R) - Forest Whitaker plays an ex-con-turned-Muslim in this flick. However, his town's sheriff, Harvey Keitel, super doesn't like him because he shot a deputy. A man can only take so much heckling before he reverts back to his bad ways to cope with the jerkery. Oh, man! After writing this review I finally understand that "I shot the sheriff, but I did not shoot the deputy" song.
DIRECTED BY: Rachid Bouchareb
STARRING: Forest Whitaker, Harvey Keitel, Ellen Burstyn, Luis Guzmán, Brenda Blethyn
METASCORE: 56, based on 6 Critics
JUST BEFORE I GO (USA, R) - Is it just me or are there a lot of movies coming out lately where the main character has gotten to the point in life when suicide seems the only solution? You know, it's a dark subject, but I guess I can respect people bringing it up a bunch in movies. Luckily, this guy pulls through, but you could have deduced that from that fact that it's directed by Courtney Cox, who would never let someone die without a fight. Speaking of her, if you have not seen COUGAR TOWN, I promise you that you are missing out.
DIRECTED BY: Courteney Cox
STARRING: Seann William Scott, Olivia Thirlby, Garret Dillahunt, Kate Walsh
METASCORE: 24, based on 6 Critics
[REC] 4: APOCALYPSE (Spain, R) - Horrors and firemen and nightmares. Some gal goes into this building and comes out with a deadly infection. Then she has to be quarantined. And some other creepy intense suspenseful stuff happens, but you know, whatever. They say this is the final film of the series but you know how it goes with horror franchises.
DIRECTED BY: Jaume Balaguero
STARRING: Manuela Velasco, Paco Manzanedo, Hector Colome, Mariano Venancio
METASCORE: 53, based on 5 Critics
AGAINST THE SUN (USA, PG) - Here you go - another WWII movie, and this one is based on the true story of three airmen who crash and are lost for, like, a really long portion of time. It's a harrowing tale of endurance and a will to survive against all odds. There's no Richard Parker, like from LIFE OF PI, but they do have to travel in a small life boat for quite a while.
DIRECTED BY: Brian Falk
STARRING: Tom Felton, Jake Abel, Garret Dillahunt, Nadia Parra
METASCORE: 43, based on 5 Critics
WALTER (USA, Not Rated) - Walter works at a movie theatre. He has this crazy notion that he's the son of God and therefore can judge who gets into to heaven and who's damned to hell. Then he meets a ghost stuck in purgatory and everything gets weirder.
DIRECTED BY: Anna Mastro
STARRING: Andrew J. West, Milo Ventimiglia, Leven Rambin, Neve Campbell, William H. Macy, Peter Facinelli, Virginia Madsen
METASCORE: 36, based on 5 Critics
THE NUN (France, Not Rated) - It's a religious period piece set in France in the 1760s. When a pretty girl joins a convent she's all like, "Whaaaat? This is way different." She's in a real cloister funk.
DIRECTED BY: Guillaume Nicloux
STARRING: Pauline Étienne, Isabelle Huppert, Louise Bourgoin, Martina Gedeck
METASCORE: 51, based on 4 Critics
THE ADMIRAL: ROARING CURRENTS (South Korea, Not Rated) - Here's some kinda samurai army fight epic battle ships armada 1597 dynasty history naval arguing with swords or something involving some of those words. This is the biggest box office hit ever in South Korean history.
DIRECTED BY: Han-min Kim
STARRING: Choi Min-sik, Ryu Seung-ryong
