“Now You See Me” wants to work like magic, but doesn’t.
What do moviegoers have to look forward to (or, perhaps, in some cases, dread) through the rest of May and into June, July, and August?
Before 2012 can disappear from our memory banks, how about a look back at the year’s most gratifying moviegoing experiences?
This threequel is a thoughtful and thought-provoking essay on modern-day morality, as well as a spectacular disaster epic, and a propulsive thriller with expert, dizzying action sequences.
So what do June, July, and August have in store for us as mainstream attractions compete for box office dollars? Plenty!
Here’s a sequel that’s pretty much the equal of its predecessor. That is not a compliment.
Our new video releases this week are led by “Captain America: The First Avenger,” with Chris Evans starring as the comic book character with Word War II origins.
It’s not equal to the masterful original, “Cars,” but it would border on the miraculous if it were.
What will moviegoers be looking forward to, flocking to, then fleeing from or returning to, on theatre screens between now and late August?
“Gnomeo & Juliet,” while no world beater, is a clever and colorful kidflick.
Our home video releases this week are pretty much a mixed bag.
