Admit One 8/31

Lawless

Starring: Tom Hardy, Shia Labeouf, Jessica Chastain, Guy Pearce, Jason Clarke, Mia Wasikowska

Directed by: John Hillcoat

Plot: A trio of bootlegging brothers are threatened when a ruthless federal agent arrives in their small Virginia town.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 65%

Critic Consensus: “Grim, bloody, and utterly flawed, Lawless doesn’t quite achieve the epic status it strains for, but it’s too beautifully filmed and powerfully acted to dismiss”

The Possession

Starring: Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Kyra Sedgwick, Madison Davenport, Natasha Calis, Grant Show, Matisyahu

Directed by: Ole Bornedal

Plot: A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale but she and her family soon realize that an evil force was locked inside but has now been unleashed and is possessing her.

RT Freshness: 32%

Critic Consensus: “It may be based on a true story, but that doesn’t excuse the way The Possession repeatedly falls back on hoary ghost movie clichés — or the uninentional laughs it provides”

The Ooogieloves in The Big Balloon Adventure

Starring: Toni Braxton, Cloris Leachman, Chazz Palminteri, Christopher Lloyd, Cary Elwes, Jaime Pressly

Directed by: Matthew Diamond

Plot: The Oogieloves and their friends are planning a birthday party when they lose their five magical balloons and must go on an adventure to get them back.

RT Freshness: 40%

Critic Consensus: “Although it may serve as a passing diversion for very young viewers, The Oogieloves fails to offer much more than several brightly colored examples of the worst stereotypes of modern children’s entertainment”
