Old English epic Beowulf and comic fantasy Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium square off at the Cineplex this weekend. Also opening are the Gabriel Garcia Marquez adaptation Love in the Time of Cholera and Brian de Palma's Iraq war rant Redacted.
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium
"Plays like some meandering, bastard love child of Toys, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Finding Neverland." [Full Review]
"The coolest-looking videogame I've ever seen...entertaining in spurts but ultimately soulless." [Full Review]
Love in the Time of Cholera
"A hodge-podge of histrionic, ridiculous scenes cobbled together with no build up...an utter disappointment." [Full Review]
"Some may find this movie heavy-handed in its depiction of the war, but for me it was finally an Iraq War movie done right." [Full Review]
Margot at the Wedding
"Noah Baumbach is an absolute master of the indie genre...no one does bad parent movies better." [Full Review]
