10.12.07 by reelz
It's a crowded weekend at the Cineplex for new movies, with four major releases, We Own the Night, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married? and The Final Season, opening. Oscar candidate Michael Clayton also expands nationwide.
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
We Own the Night
"A solid, angst-ridden thriller with strong performances from Phoenix, Wahlberg and Duvall." [Full Review]
Elizabeth: The Golden Age
"Takes dull pages of a history book and turns them into powerful, enveloping, stirring, and gorgeous drama." [Full Review]
Why Did I Get Married?
"Why does Tyler Perry have a job?" [Full Review]
"If one submits to its rhythms rather than rage against them, its acting and just-so overall design prove a more than inviting combination for the arthouse set." [Full Review]
"An occasionally entertaining, mostly tedious exercise in actor self-indulgence." [Full Review]
Lars and the Real Girl
"A lovely little indie dramedy...Gosling is pitch perfect, oozing painful vulnerability down to his twitching eyes and innocently hopeful gazes" [Full Review]
Also opening: Control, Terror's Advocate
