Tuesday at the Movies January 22, 2013

Posted by Dori in Movies.

movieDid you see any movies this weekend? My plans to see Zero Dark Thirty fell through, but I have until February 24th, Oscar night,  to see all the nominees, so I haven’t given up hope yet.

If you are free this Friday, January 25th at 12 noon, please join us for a viewing of Hope Springs starring Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones. It’s part of a new program we call Lunch and a Movie: the last Friday of the month until May we’ll show a new release – you bring your lunch and we’ll provide drinks and popcorn.

In the meantime, there are quite a few movies coming out on DVD today which you can check out:

Pina: Wim Wender’s documentary about a groundbreaking dance company led by Pina Bausch – beautifully filmed.
Searching for Sugar Man – Oscar nominated documentary about the search for Sixto Rodriguez, a Detroit folk musician who had a short career in the 70s and then disappeared. Unbeknownst to him, his musical career later flourished…not in the USA, but in South Africa.
Nobody Walks – John Krasinski stars in this indie film about a husband and wife who agree to let a young artist stay with them to work on her new film. Co-written by Girls‘ creator Lena Dunham.
The Paperboy – Lee Daniels, whose first film was Precious, directs Nicole Kidman, Zac Efron and Mathew McConaughey in this film about a newspaper reporter who returns to his steamy Florida hometown to investigate a case involving a death row inmate. Described by some reviewers as ‘Southern gothic noir’ and others as simply weird – hmmm…makes me curious.
Officer Down – Stephen Dorff stars in this action film about a crooked cop who tries for redemption by finding the men responsible for a string of attacks on young women working at a strip club.
Keep the Lights On – a film about the rise and fall of a relationship between two young men in New York City.
The Imposter – a docudrama about a 13-year old boy who disappeared in 1994 from Texas and was found 3 years later in Spain, telling a story of kidnap and torture. His family, however, is suspicious: is he the same boy or an imposter?
Beauty is Embarassing: The Wayne White Story: a documentary about one-of-a-kind artist Wayne White.
The Abolitionists: a PBS special that traces the history of the abolitionist movement.

Happy Watching!

Saw Zero Dark Thirty. It had some slow moments, but they need to be there so you can’t fault it for that. Overall it was quite enjoyable.
