This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Apr. 19-21, 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

Dormant Beauty

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

Ek Thi Daayan

Kathy Gibson @ Access Bollywood

Iron Man: Rise of Technovore

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: Iron Man: Rise of Technovore has a decent story that makes fitting use of many characters from the Marvel universe. The presentation, however, proves to be kind of lifeless and underwhelming.

Kinderblock 66: Return to Buchenwald

Mike McGranaghan @ The Aisle Seat

  • Excerpt: A compelling, emotional film

Molly Maxwell

Marina Antunes @ Quiet Earth

Ombline

Jean-François Vandeuren @ Panorama-cinema.com [French]

The Patience Stone

Jesse Cataldo @ Slant Magazine

Pawn

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: The pacing and plotting are just enough to hold your interest and get you to overlook some off-key moments.

Piazza Fontana: The Italian Conspiracy

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

The Red and the Blue

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

Rio 2096: A Story of Love and Fury

Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]

Thale

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: This 2012 Norwegian genre film, which reaches America via home video next week, sells itself on the image of a seemingly naked woman with a tail in a forest of large mushrooms (added for this release), shadowy figures, and the hint of magic. Sure, there’s some intrigue to that artwork, but it sets the bar around “Species.”
