After throwing elbow trying to get that new TV or game console, why not relax with one of three new movies that are out this weekend?
Starring: Viggo Mortensen, Kodi McPhee, Charlize Theron, Guy Pearce
Directed by: John Hillcoat
Plot: A man and his son struggle to survive in a grim, post apocalyptic wasteland.
Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 70%
Critic Consensus: “The Road’s commitment to Cormac McCarthy’s dark vision may prove too unyielding for some, but the film benefits from hauntingly powerful performances from Viggo Mortensen and Kodi McPhee.”
Starring: Robin Williams, John Travolta, Seth Green, Kelly Preston
Directed by: Walt Becker
Plot: When Dan’s old girlfriend arrives back in town with twins, he enlists the help of his best friend Charlie to help him with his new dad duties.
RT Freshness: 7%
Critic Consensus: “Its cast tries hard, but Old Dogs is a predictable, nearly witless attempt at physical comedy and moral uplift that misses the mark on both counts.”
Starring: Rain, Naomie Harris, Ben Miles, Sho Kosugi
Directed by: James McTeigue
Plot: Raised by a mysterious and deadly ninja clan, the Ozunu, Raizo plots his revenge against them when his best friend is killed by them.
RT Freshness: 28%
Critic Consensus: “Overly serious and incomprehensibly edited, Ninja Assassin fails to live up to the promise of its title.”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
