This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Aug. 10-12, 2012)

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.

2012 Films Not Yet In Theaters

Heaven Strewn

Jerry Roberts @ Armchair Cinema

  • Excerpt: A well-crafted debut from a first-time filmmaker

Rick Aragon @ Rick’s Cafe Texan

Jism 2

Kathy Gibson @ Access Bollywood

Laddaland

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: Part of my interest in seeing Laddaland was simply because it takes placed in Chiang Mai, the Thai city I lived in for several months back between the November of 2006 through March of 2007. Between simply living in Thailand, and watching a fair number of Thai movies, what I’ve learned about ghosts is that if you don’t bother them, they won’t bother you.

Liverpool

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

Suicide Room

Gregory J. Smalley @ 366 Weird Movies

  • Excerpt: What we see is the online world as embellished by Dominik’s imagination, a wired existence that’s realer and more appealing to him than the harsh realities of the world outside his door. The stylistic strategy could be described either as “virtual magical realism” or “digital Expressionism.”
