(102 Fifth St. Next to the railroad depot, 247-8133)
Cloud Atlas. HHHH This one’s difficult to explain, but a cool ideat; people are connected through time and come back in different forms in different times. IIt sounds confusing, but it works. Rated R.
Lincoln. HHHH Daniel Day-Lewis delivers a spot-on performance in Spielbergian splendor. (See review this page.) Rated PG-13.
Durango Stadium 9
(Next to Durango Mall, 247-9799)
Holy Motors. HHH½ (Wednesday only) Here’s Ebert’s description: “An exasperating, frustrating, anarchic film about an unexplained man who spends a long day in the back of a white stretch limousine, being driven from one ‘appointment’ to another.” Not rated.
Breaking Dawn: Part 2. The official trailer description: “After the birth of Renesmee, the Cullens gather other vampire clans in order to protect the child from a false allegation that puts the family in front of the Volturi.” Is it OK that I’m really glad this is finally over? Rated PG-13.
Skyfall. HHHH This time, it’s up to Bond to save MI6 itself from extinction. Never ends for the poor guy, right? Rated PG-13.
Flight. HHHH Denzel stars as an alcoholic airline pilot who pulls off a Sully-like feat of derring-do, but then questions arise as to whose fault it was that things got so bad in the first place. Rated R.
The Man with the Iron Fists. (No Ebert rating) RZA of Wu-Tang fame makes his directorial debut with a bloodbath of a script he co-penned with Eli Roth. Looks very Tarantino-esque. Rated R.
Wreck-It Ralph. HHH (In standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge) Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) is a video-game doormat who goes on a spree across the arcade wreaking havoc. Rated PG.
Argo. HHHH Ben Affleck – yes, Ben Affleck – kills as a CIA guy who conjures up a trick to get six hostages out of Iran in 1979. Based on a true story. Rated R.
Hotel Transylvania. (No Ebert rating) An animated movie with Adam Sandler voicing Dracula as the owner of a high-end resort. I’ve heard worse premises, unfortunately. Rated PG.
