With all three of this weekend's major releases, The Brave One, Mr. Woodcock and Dragon Wars, receiving mediocre reviews, folks heading to the movies this weekend might be best advised to skip the Cineplex entirely and hit up the local arthouse theater instead.
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
The Brave One
"The director tries to distract you with lots of fancy shots, but the script...I don't know what's worse, the storyline or the dialogue." [Full Review]
"The movie's first ten minutes, in which coach Billy Bob viciously berates his meek pupils, are intermittently hilarious, but it's all downhill from there." [Full Review]
In the Valley of Elah
"It's heavy, it's sad, and flaws aside, I liked it...Tommy Lee Jones's performance is quiet, intense, and stunning."
