New Movies Opening Friday, Jul 24, 2015

This week the new movies in town include Paper Towns, Pixels, Southpaw and other stuff like what's been out in theaters.


Pixels seems fun...

When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games.

Director: Chris Columbus
Stars: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Michelle Monaghan, Peter Dinklage

But if I had to choose, judging from how poorly it has been received by critics across the board, well, I'd save my money. But that's just me.


Paper Towns

Stars Nat Wolff, Cara Delevingne, Austin Abrams, Justice Smith     and is about:

A young man and his friends embark upon the road trip of their lives to find the missing girl next door.



Southpaw starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams
With  Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams, Oona Laurence, Forest Whitaker seems to be the safe bet if you need to hit up theaters this weekend. It has a lot of reviews under its belt and the meta score is only at 51/100, but that's OK.

Boxer Billy Hope turns to trainer Tick Willis to help him get his life back on track after losing his wife in a tragic accident and his daughter to child protection services.

Director Antoine Fuqua has experience running action flicks. His resume includes Training Day, Equalizer, Shooter and Olympus has Fallen.

Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter wrote the story, so that seems fairly exciting in and of itself. Reason enough for me to want to go see it.

It already has an 8.2 from 1,800 users on IMDb...


If you like junk movies to go lose yourself in, check out

The Vatican Tapes

Starring Olivia Taylor Dudley, Michael Peña, Dougray Scott, Djimon Hounsou.

A priest and two Vatican exorcists must do battle with an ancient satanic force to save the soul of a young woman.

Like we've never seen that story before!!! OK, just fooling...
