MOVIE REVIEWS - Now In Theaters

Written by

Let's look at some of the new movies in theaters this week, and see how we're doing.

Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard star in this amazing WWII flick, that everyone should see if you love well done, well acted movies.

This is full of nice twists and turns and features incredible performances from the entire cast. Pitt is making the best movies of his career lately and Cotillard is terrific and could earn hers an Oscar nomination.  She is terrific in this complicated role, and she delivers from tough, to smooth, to insanely sexy.

Allied. This is a must see.

Rules Don't Apply

Warren Beatty leads a huge cast in this movie taking place in the 1950's and 60's that deals with the intensely eccentric Howard Hughes and his empire, both the good and the really not so good.  As good as this cast is, the star of this movie is the young actress Lily Collins, who plays this amazingly naive, young actress that finds herself involved with Hughes in Hollywood at RKO Pictures.

She is so good in this flick, she saves it.  Oscar nomination? Possible. This is not a bad movie, but it is slow at times, but she makes it tolerable.  This looks great, and has a nice soundtrack.  But make no mistake, the versatile performance by Collins is the gas in the engine that it badly needs.

This is solid and worth the time, thanks to Collins.

Bad Santa 2

Billy Bob Thornton and the cast of crazies is back again, and more vile than ever in this sequel.  This is the continuing story of our favorite vulgar Santa, his horrible life, and his never ending quest to try to get it right.  Should be noted, the R rating was invented for this movie. 

This is very harsh in every regard. This is of course like the original in its dark comedy feel, but we are climbing to a new low in colorful language and subject matter. Yes, there are some laughs here, and there are some ridiculous moments you can't help but laugh at.  But, this is very dark, and incredibly politically incorrect. So if you are easily offended, pass this one by.

(NO acceptable preview for this site)

Plenty of tough dialogue, sexual situations, and downright raunchy.   If it's total detachment you are looking for this may be your comedy.  For me, this did get fatiguing after a while

Hard R rating.  Not at all for any kid anywhere.
