What to Watch in the Theater:
Table 19 (PG13) is now in theaters. Funny ensemble cast supports Anna Kendrick ,playing her usual scattered damsel trying to do the right thing – if only she knew what that was. Lots of laugh out loud moments, a great 80s soundtrack, and much more heart than anticipated.
Our rating: 4.25 out of 5
Beauty and the Beast (PG) opens today. All controversy aside, this is one beauty of a movie – the lush settings, new songs, a few story tweaks, and 20 extra minutes on the running time. With familiar characters and songs you could sing along to in your sleep – this live action version doesn’t add too much to the original animated one, but still feels fresh. Yes, it’s a tale as old as time, but there’s something there that wasn’t there before.
Our rating: 4.18 out of 5
What to Watch at Home (Or Not):
Ordinary World (NR) This one never made it into wide release, but it’s a sweet story with Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong in his first leading role. The story dragged a bit, but he did a great job pulling off a 40-year-old’s coming of age, and providing new music for the film.
Our rating: 3.33 out of 5
Misconduct (R) This thriller kept us guessing till the end, and we weren’t pleased with the additional twist at the very end. Intriguing movie, with probably a little more star power than it needed. Playing opposite BOTH Al Pacino and Anthony Hopkins must not have been easy for Josh Duhamel, who carries his weight nicely as the lead.
