If you’re going surfing, remember to always do so with a friend. Rip currents and sharp coral are dangerous, not to mention the stinging jellyfish and, well, sharks that make the Great White from Jaws look like a mild-mannered aquarium pet. At least, that’s what The...

Anesthesia - A professor at Columbia University is brutally attacked at the outset of this indie drama. The movie then follows the many troubled lives of the people he intersected with before the violent incident. Despite a big cast, critics were not taken at all with the feature.

Well, at least it isn’t a sequel. In a summer full of follow-ups, the latest Hollywood blockbuster takes a different route and instead adapts a fantasy video game for the big screen... and it may be as close as we get to an original popcorn flick this year.
