It’s a busy weekend with four wide releases. Unfortunately, unless you like horror, none of them are really worth your time. RED 2 Before The Expendables, RED (Retired, Extremely Dangerous) brought together aging actors in an outrageous and surprisingly successful action film. After it left theaters, though, I think it left most people’s minds. Continue reading “Weekend Preview – July 19, 2013”
From the case files of the noted paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) comes the purportedly true story of a family terrorized by an intensely evil and powerful force.
Hey, remember that Bruce Willis action movie with old people that everyone liked but everyone forgot about? Well, the sequel is here.
When detective Nick Walker (Ryan Reynolds) is killed in the line of duty, instead of facing judgement, he finds himself recruited into the R.I.P.D – the Rest in Peace Department.

Between his emotionally unstable mother (ToniContinue reading “Review – The Way, Way Back”
The team that brought us The Pirates of the Caribbean hopes to do for cowboys and indians what they did for pirates – make them cool again. This time, though, they go after the long established (though long languished) franchise of The Lone Ranger.
