Jack the Giant Slayer

Starring: Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci, Eddie Marsan, Bill Nighy

Directed by: Bryan Singer

Plot: A young man joins a group of knights to storm a kingdom of giants to rescue the kidnapped princess.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 50%

Critic Consensus: “It’s enthusiastically acted and reasonably fun, but Jack the Giant Slayer is also overwhelmed by its digital effects and a story so middle-of-the-road as to be a bit bland and impersonal”

21 and Over

Starring: Miles Teller, Skylar Astin, Justin Chon, Sarah Wright, Jonathan Keltz

Directed by: Jon Lucas, Scott Moore

Plot: Even though he has a major interview for med school in the morning, recently turned 21 Jeff allows his friends to take him out and things quickly get out of hand.

RT Freshness: 33%

Critic Consensus: “Though it strives to mimic The Hangover, 21 and Over is too predictable, too unabashedly profane, and too inconsistently funny to carry the torch”

Phantom

RT Freshness: 20%
