This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Feb. 15-17, 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.

Beauty is Embarrassing: The Wayne White Story

The Factory

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: The Factory seems to have the ingredients for a passable atmospheric mystery, but more interested in the serial killer than the cops looking for him, it opts to be a bleak tale of torture and torment with an absurdly unsatisfying twist ending.

Jason Bailey @ The Atlantic
