FULL SCREENING LIST FOR THE WEEK
THEATRICAL RELEASES FOR FRIDAY FEBRUARY 11
Gnomeo & Juliet (Wide) Can a talented cast of voices make this watchable? I’ll never know.
The Eagle (Wide) Teen Vogue favorites dressed as Roman soldiers in Britain, from the director of The Last King of Scotland. I didn’t know this movie existed until I saw a commercial for it during The Office this week. That show has really lost a lot of its charm, but I still enjoy Steve Carell. I’ll be sad when he leaves.
NOTABLE BLU-RAY/DVD RELEASES FOR TUES FEB 8
Paranormal Activity 2, Still Walking (Criterion),
I Spit on Your Grave, Life as We Know It, You Again, Ong Bak 3, It’s Kind of a Funny Story
