(102 Fifth St. Next to the railroad depot, 247-8133)
The Intouchables. HH½ A comedy based on a true story in which a handicapped millionaire and his ex-con caretaker form a unique bond of friendship. Rated R.
To Rome with Love. HHH Woody Allen’s latest has high-profile Americans mixing with Europeans and provincials in the Eternal City. Rated R.
For a Good Time Call. HH A movie about two college grads who go into the phone-sex business. I can’t say it any better than Mr. Ebert: “I’m not objecting to the movie on grounds of taste but because it is stupid, vulgar, crass and mercilessly formulaic. On second thought, maybe I am objecting on grounds of taste.” Rated R.
Durango Stadium 9
(Next to Durango Mall, 247-9799)
Hotel Transylvania. (No Ebert rating; in standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge.) An animated movie with Adam Sandler voicing Dracula as the owner of a high-end resort. I’ve heard worse premises, unfortunately. Rated PG.
Looper. HHH½ In the year 2074, when the mob wants to put a hit on someone they do it right, sending a hitman back 30 years in the past to kill ’em at the root, so to speak. (See review this page.) Rated PG-13.
Won’t Back Down. HH Two mothers work tirelessly to reform their kids’ failing inner-city school. Rated PG.
Dredd. (No Ebert rating; in standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge.) When the police have the ability to try and sentence offenders, one must hope that they’re really the good guys. Rated R.
End of Watch. HHHH Two cops are added to a Mexican cartel’s hit list after a routine traffic stop. Rated R.
The House at the End of the Street. (No Ebert rating) Here’s my guess, sight unseen: Something bad happened in the house and may again. Rated PG-13.
Trouble with the Curve. HHH I promised myself I wouldn’t make any lame jokes about empty chairs. This is a movie about baseball starring Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams. Rated PG-13.
Finding Nemo. HHHH (In standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge.) This movie is 9 years old, so there’s no harm in giving away the plot: A fish’s son is fishnapped and he goes on a quest to get him back. Rated G.
Lawless. HH½ Hard to tell who the bad guys are in this Depression-era crime tale. The cops want a cut of the gangsters’ profits, and these guys aren’t the sharing type. Rated R.
