This Week at the Movies, Part 2

Because of embargoes (those happy little restrictions on when critics can post reviews, good or bad), a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

Christopher Bourne @ Meniscus

Aquí y Allá

Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit

J.A.C.E.

George Zervopoulos @ Movies Ltd [Greek]

Journey to Planet X

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: In its own way, Journey to Planet X shows that making a no-budget film takes a lot of effort.

A Moral Conjugal

Tiago Ramos @ Split Screen [Portuguese]

Mourning

Christopher Bourne @ Meniscus

  • Excerpt: “Mourning” is a brilliantly conceived and splendidly designed film that reaffirms the fact that Iran is the source of some of world cinema’s most humanistic, emotionally affecting, and philosophically profound works.

The Muslims Are Coming

Stephen Saito @ The Moveable Fest

  • Excerpt: From its Austin Film Fest premiere, Muslim-American comics Negin Farsad and Dean Obeidallah document a tour across the reddest states in America to change the perception of their religion and get laughs doing it.

Pearblossom Hwy

Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit

  • Excerpt: Young adults fight against failure

Rice Field of Dreams

Betty Jo Tucker @ ReelTalk Movie Reviews

  • Excerpt: A unique and inspiring baseball documentary.

Snackbar

Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit

  • Excerpt: Snacks are sold more to kill time than to nourish

Sparrows Dance

Stephen Saito @ The Moveable Fest

  • Excerpt: From the Austin Film Festival and anchored by two strong performances, a romance conjured from limited means demonstrates the real magic of movies.

Young Gun in the Time

Christopher Bourne @ Meniscus

  • Excerpt: Raymond Chandler meets “Back to the Future,” with a liberal dose of Seijun Suzuki tossed into the mix, in “Young Gun in the Time,” writer-director Oh Young-doo’s clever and funny time-travel detective story. It impressively makes full use of its shoestring budget ($30,000) with inventiveness, an irreverent sense of fun, and some surprisingly well-choreographed fight scenes.
