This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Jan. 25-27, 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.

Fat Kid Rules the World

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: Fat Kid Rules the World is not a movie that will appeal to a wide audience, but those that find this film, quite possibly entering with an appreciation for the novel, might like it. While director Matthew Lillard and company make more good choices than bad ones, the subject matter — suicidalness, punk rock, prescription drugs — surely will not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Stephen Saito @ The Moveable Fest

  • Excerpt: In making a film about a young woman forced to find her place in a devout Hasidic community, a first-time director finds a way to stand out with this Sundance ’13 selection.
