This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Aug. 2-4, 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

The First Man

Ron Wilkinson @ ItsJustMovies.com

  • Excerpt: With all the depression and twice the passion of Camus’ final novel, this film comes as close as could be imagined to putting the impossible on the silver screen.

The King of Streets

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

Piazza Fontana: The Italian Conspiracy

Ron Wilkinson @ ItsJustMovies.com

  • Excerpt: This is a cryptic film for those who do not know the story. Learn the story first and the film comes to life.

Robert Williams: Mr. Bitchin’

Peter Gutierrez @ Firefox News
Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

Willow Creek

Stephen Saito @ The Moveable Fest

  • Excerpt: A found-footage style search for Sasquatch keeps the writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait’s appreciation for great characters and great surprises.

2012 Films

The Hunt

[New Reviews Today] For member reviews of this film, follow this link

In Bed With Ulysses

Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

  • Excerpt: The documentary skews to the scholarly side, so likely won’t appeal to filmgoers who aren’t at least somewhat familiar with the author, but “In Bed With Ulysses” should go a long way to aiding the willing in sorting out Joyce’s intent.
