Crimson Peak: Both Sweet and Sour

E-mail Print PDF
Rating: «« out of 4 stars

Running Time: 118 min.

I’ve often wondered why the spirits of the deceased are so darn vague in their warnings to loved ones in the movies. They make such a big deal about their appearance, often startling the party being haunted. But then, instead of explicitly stating the threat, warn that...

Well, it’s not quite as busy this week for new releases, but the ones arriving are certainly noteworthy and worth reading up on. So if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try.

Big New Releases!

Dope - A brainy teen living in inner-city Los Angeles juggles school life, college applications and an invitation to a big party in this independent comedy. Unfortunately, the journey to the shindig ends up resulting in all sorts of wild misadventure. Reviews were very strong for this effort. They referred to the young cast as incredibly charming and the story filled with laughs (although some believed it ran out of steam by the...

THE WALK Features Spectacular Views

Rating: ««« out of 4 Stars

Running Time: 123 min.

It isn’t often that a movie reviewer will actually suggest paying a premium to check out a film. This week is an exception. The Walk takes the famous story of Philippe Petit’s 1974 high-wire walk between the World Trade Center skyscrapers and maximizes the visual content for full impact. The movie itself isn’t without some issues, but one cannot watch it without admitting that it looks spectacular. If you’ve ever considered seeing a movie in IMAX 3D, but were waiting for a title that really takes advantage of depth, this is the one.

The narrative is told through Philippe Petit (Joseph Gordon-Levitt). Petit’s story was...

Pan is a visually spectacular jumble

Rating: «« out of 4 stars

Running Time: 111 minutes

Ever wondered how Peter Pan ended up in Neverland? I didn’t either, but a new film aspires to tell the story of the young boy who travels to a magical land and learns to fly. Pan is a marvel to look at, with imaginative adventure scenarios that feature stunning visuals. However, story wise, this is a hodge-podge of ideas that never quite gel. Kids may still enjoy the wild imagery, but most adults will likely be left scratching their heads.

Set during World War II, Peter (Levi Miller) is a boy living in a London orphanage under the stern rule of Mother Barnabas (Kathy Burke). One night, while the city is being shelled, she raises...

Wow, this week is packed with all sorts of flicks, running the gamut from independent, to Hollywood, to low-budget horror (Halloween is coming, after all). So, if you can’t make it out to the movies this week, be sure to give one of these titles a try!

Big New Releases!

Burying the Ex - A young man must contend with a possessive and controlling ex-girlfriend who has risen from the grave in this indie comedy-horror flick from director Joe Dante (Gremlins). It also puts a damper on the lead’s burgeoning relationship with his dream girl. A few critics called it an amusing bit of fun, but most weren’t as forgiving, suggesting the material was well below the talents of...
