This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Apr. 12-14, 2013)

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.

2013 Films Not Yet In Theaters

Buddies

Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]

Magic Journey to Africa

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: If a bit hard to wrap your head around, Magic Journey to Africa is a harmless film. Its large format photography of wildlife takes a backseat to a quest whose episodic adventures are largely theoretical.

The Outrage (a.k.a. At the Gate of the Ghost)

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: At the Gate of the Ghost might not have the kind of impact that Rashomon had when it was released over sixty years ago, but more than many remakes, is worth investigating for the reworking of a now classic story.

Tad, the Lost Explorer

Tiago Ramos @ Split Screen [Portuguese]

Tormented

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Like Shock Labyrinth, Shimizu again explores an interweaving of dreams, nightmares and memories.

TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard

Matthew Blevins @ Nextprojection.com

Twixt

Dragan Antulov @ Draxblog VI [Croatian]

A Monster in Paris

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: Directed, conceived, and co-written by Bibo Bergeron, a DreamWorks veteran unflatteringly advertised as “the director of Shark Tale”, Monster will not hold every viewer’s attention with its thin story, stagnant songs, and somewhat unremarkable visuals. Still, its color, characters, and belief in its universe help keep it appealing and investable.

Trashed

Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

  • Excerpt: Candida Brady’s “Trashed” is a hard-hitting, apolitical environmental documentary that turns the camera lens on the problem of worldwide waste. Actor Jeremy Irons (“Reversal of Fortune”) serves as our globe-trekking guide, visiting locales where overflowing landfills are having negative effects on the neighboring populace.
