These Movies Are in Theaters Now

January 28, 2011


The Mechanic
Director: Simon West
Starring: Jason Statham, Ben Foster, Donald Sutherland
Good if you want to see: a remake of The Mechanic, now with Jason Statham doing Jason Statham in it.

The Rite
Director: Mikael Håfström
Starring: Colin O'Donoghue, Anthony Hopkins, Ciarán Hinds
Good if you want to see: another thing about exorcisms.

From Prada to Nada
Director: Angel Gracia
Starring: Camilla Belle, Alexa Vega, Wilmer Valderrama
Good if you want to see: Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility brought to modern East LA. Without even a single fucking zombie?

Strongman (limited)
Director: Zachary Levy (with a "y"; it isn't Chuck)
Starring:Stanless Steel
Good if you want to see: a documentary on an aging bodybuilder trying to get by on getting paid to lift trucks and bend pennies in his fingers, which is difficult because that isn't really a job.

Kaboom (limited)
Director:Gregg Araki
Starring: Thomas Dekker, Chris Zylka, Roxanne Mesquida, Juno Temple
Good if you want to see: a convoluted, fantastical narrative that involves a lot of college kids smart-talkin' and having so much sex. When will a college movie ever finally focus on all the dorm room LAN parties?

Ip Man 2: Legend of the Grandmaster (limited)
Director: Wilson Yip
Starring: Donnie Yen, Sammo Hung
Good if you want to see: the next Ip Man movie. So if you haven't seen the first one, don't even bother. No one wants you sitting next to them whining whispered pleas for Ip exposition.
