Movies: What to Watch at the Movies: Friday July 19th, 2013

This weekend’s releases will cause you to use a lot of imagination in order to enjoy them. You’ll have to believe in unlikely comic book heroes, monsters and ghosts. Here’s how I rank them.

RED 2 (Summit Entertainment)
1hr 56mins
Rated: PG-13 (for pervasive action and violence including frenetic gunplay, and for some language and drug material.)

Retired black-ops CIA agent Frank Moses reunites his unlikely team of elite operatives for a global quest to track down a missing portable nuclear device.

And that just scratches the surface. But if you saw the first version, Red, then you would say “why make another?” The answer is obvious when you see Red 2: to make it better.

This version is funny, cute, charming and has enough action to keep you entertained for the nearly two hours. The star filled cast are fun to watch. The one-liners work, although the action scenes aren’t believable. But realizing that these movies of old-people agents are a part of DC Comics, then it makes sense; it’s not supposed to be believable. Did you know that it is a three-issue comic book mini-series published in 2003 and 2004?

Who’s it good for: this movie is safe enough for the entire family, although it has a lot of comic-book style violence. It’s good for a sweet date night for all ages. It’s a good time.

The Way, Way Back (Fox Searchlight)
1hr 36mins
Rated: PG-13 (for thematic elements, language, some sexual content and brief drug material.)

THE WAY, WAY BACK is the coming of age story of 14-year-old Duncan’s (Liam James) summer vacation with his mother, Pam (Toni Collette), her overbearing boyfriend, Trent (Steve Carell), and his daughter, Steph (Zoe Levin). Having a rough time fitting in, the introverted Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen (Sam Rockwell), the gregarious manager of the Water Wizz Water Park. Through his funny, clandestine friendship with Owen, Duncan slowly opens up to and begins to finally find his place in the world—all during a summer he will never forget.
It’s a charming story. Most people can relate or empathize with the main character Duncan. Once you are connected with his story, you’ll find joy in his journey and eventual triumph.

Who’s it good for: good for family day out, and for tweens and teens, can spark after film conversation about sex and drugs.

R.I.P.D. (Universal)
1hr 36mins
Rated: PG-13 (for violence, sci-fi/fantasy action, some sensuality, and language including sex references.)

Veteran sheriff Roy Pulsifer (Bridges) has spent his career with the legendary police force known as R.I.P.D. tracking monstrous spirits who are cleverly disguised as ordinary people. His mission? To arrest and bring to justice a special brand of criminals trying to escape final judgment by hiding among the unsuspecting on Earth. Once the wise-cracking Roy is assigned former rising-star detective Nick Walker (Reynolds) as his junior officer, the new partners have to turn grudging respect into top-notch teamwork. When they uncover a plot that could end life as we know it, two of R.I.P.D.’s finest must miraculously restore the cosmic balance or watch the tunnel to the afterlife begin sending angry souls the very wrong way.

For something with a stupid premise, the film is actually entertaining. It’s worth a try since it stars Ryan Reynolds, Kevin Bacon and Jeff Bridges. It’s a little silly, there’s prosthetic-faced monsters and of course the saving of the end of the world. (I should make a game about how many different “end of the world” films are released this summer.)

Who’s it good for: this could make for some good family entertainment. Everyone who sees it will actually be surprised when they spurt out a laugh.

THE CONJURING (Warner Bros.)
1hr 52mins
Rated: R (for sequences of disturbing violence and terror.)

Before there was Amityville, there was Harrisville. Based on the true life story, “The Conjuring” tells the tale of how world renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorized by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse.

Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most horrifying case of their lives.

This film may leave you with nightmares. It’s has all the elements: based on true events, a home, kids, and a tale of murder. It’s from the director of “Saw” and “Insidious”.

The special effects and “real” storyline will have you freaked out. The family who experienced it all held onto the story for 30 years because “30 years ago the world wasn’t prepared for this.”

Who’s it good for: Do you like scary movies? If you do, then this is your summertime horror thriller.

GIRL MOST LIKELY (Roadside Attractions)
Limited release: Regal Park Terrace
1hr 43mins
Rated: PG-13 (for sexual content and language.)

Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, once a promising young New York playwright whose promise has fizzled, thanks to a crisis of confidence. Heavily in denial about being dumped by her society boyfriend, Imogene uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate fake suicide as an appeal for his sympathy. But her attempt backfires when she's put into the custody of Zelda, her estranged gambling addict mother (Annette Bening), and must return home with her to the Jersey shore. Desperate to get back to her Manhattan circle of so- called friends, Imogene must finally deal with her family, including her unique brother (Christopher Fitzgerald), Zelda's new boyfriend The Bousche (Matt Dillon), plus a cute young lodger (Darren Criss),who together help Imogene sort out her place in the world.  

It’s an independent comedy (actually released other places in 2012) that has one-liners, physical comedy and characters who find themselves in weird sexual situations.

Who’s it good for: I think men may get bored from the story and wouldn’t really related. So I say it’s good for a lady’s day out. Teen girls will like this film too.
