This week at the multiplex, we've got a family in peril ("The Impossible," starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor), a town versus a corporation ("Promised Land," starring Matt Damon and John Krasinski), and killer with a chainsaw ("Texas Chainsaw 3D," starring Alexandra Daddario and Tremaine "Trey Songz" Neverson). Find out what the critics have to say!
Merry Christmas! This week at the movies, we've got a quest for vengeance (Django Unchained, starring Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio), a prisoner-turned-businessman (Les MisÚrables, starring Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway), and an old-school grandfather (Parental Guidance, starring Billy Crystal and Bette Midler). What do the critics have to say?
This week at the movies, we've got a cool cop (Jack Reacher, starring Tom Cruise and Rosamund Pike); harried marrieds (This is 40, starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann); mother-son bonding (The Guilt Trip, starring Barbra Streisand and Seth Rogen); and a fanciful circus (the performance film Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away). What do the critics have to say?
Happy Thanksgiving! This week at the movies, we've got a furry castaway (Ang Lee's Life of Pi starring Suraj Sharma); folkloric fighters (Rise of the Guardians, with voice work from Chris Pine and Alec Baldwin); teen guerillas (Red Dawn, starring Chris Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson); and unhappy singles (Silver Linings Playbook, starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence). What do the critics have to say?
This week at the multiplex, we've got "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2," starring Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in the final installment of the wildly popular vampire franchise, and Steven Spielberg's hotly-anticipated biopic "Lincoln," starring Daniel Day-Lewis as Honest Abe. And in limited release, we've got "Silver Linings Playbook," a romantic comedy starring Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, as well as Joe Wright's unorthodox adaptation of "Anna Karenina," starring Keira Knightley in the title role. There's no middle ground on the Twilight series: either you're enraptured by the tale of Bella Swan and her supernatural paramours, or you're mystified by its appeal.
This week at the movies brings only one new wide release: Skyfall, the latest James Bond adventure, starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem. What do the critics have to say? Director Sam Mendes is best known for his portrayals of suburban malaise (his credits include American Beauty and Revolutionary Road), so at first blush he?d seem to be an odd choice to direct a James Bond movie. However, critics say Skyfall is a nearly perfect balance of drama and action that winks at 007?s storied cinematic past while delving deeper into the psyche of the most iconic of movie characters.
This week at the movies, we've got a sensitive villain (Wreck-it Ralph, with voice work by John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman), a troubled pilot (Flight, starring Denzel Washington and Don Cheadle), and a fighting blacksmith (The Man With the Iron Fists, starring Russell Crowe and the RZA). What do video game characters do when the lights go off at the arcade? That's the inspired premise of Wreck-it Ralph, which critics say is a visual phantasmagoria with a clever story and heartfelt characters that should appeal to kids and their parents. Flight is the tale of the flawed man behind a great act of courage, and critics say it features a terrific performance from Denzel Washington.
