FLOP OF THE WEEK
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Critics aren't giving Wolverine much love with many saying that it's a below-average superhero movie. X-Men Origins: Wolverine
tells the story of Wolverine's epically violent and romantic past, his complex relationship with Victor Creed, and the ominous Weapon X program. Along the way, Wolverine encounters many mutants, both familiar and new, including surprise appearances by several legends of the X-Men universe.
FOREIGN FILM OF THE WEEK
Revanche is the stunning, Oscar–nominated, international breakthrough film from Austrian filmmaker Götz Spielmann. In a ragged section of Vienna, hardened ex-con Alex works as an assistant in a brothel, where he falls for Ukrainian hooker Tamara. Their desperate plans for escape unexpectedly intersect with the lives of a rural cop and his seemingly content wife. With meticulous, elegant direction, Spielmann creates a tense, existential, and surprising portrait of vengeance and redemption, and a journey into the darkest forest of human nature, in which violence and beauty exist side by side.
WORTH A LOOK
The Merry Gentleman
Critics are giving Michael Keaton's first film good reviews saying that The Merry Gentleman
is original, absorbing and curiously moving in ways that are far from expected. A woman who leaves an abusive relationship to begin a new life in a new city forms an unlikely and ironic relationship with a suicidal hit man. Enter a worn, alcoholic detective to form the third party in a very unusual triangle, and this dark, soulful, sometimes-funny story begins to unfold.
