Here’s a list of movies that are being released in theaters today:
- Jack the Giant Slayer: update on the fairy tale “Jack & the Beanstalk
- 21 and Over: described as “the Hangover for younger adults“
- The Last Exorcism Part II: sequel to The Last Exorcism
- Stoker: disturbing movie about a dysfunctional family
- Phantom: captain of a Soviet submarine is forced to go on doomed mission
- Day of the Falcon: epic tale
- Leviathan: documentary about commercial fishing
- Genius on Hold: prolific tale of an inventor
Well, here’s my verdict:
What to see:
- A Place at the Table: documentary about how to solve the hunger crisis in Amercia BEFORE we force our teenagers to play The Hunger Games. Very limited release.
- Day of the Falcon
What to avoid:
- Jack the Giant Slayer: While the movie looked good, I lost interest in it after the first 25 minutes.
- 21 and Over: lame, stupid, and unnecessary. I think I’ll stick to the original Hangover.
- The Last Exorcism Part II: I wasn’t into the first one, and I’m not watching this one!
That’s all! I’ll see you at the movies!
