This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Mar. 29-31, 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

Border Run

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: Border Run makes an artless and utterly unconvicing case for immigration law reform. It also fails as a piece of entertainment, which for it seems to be an afterthought.

City World

Marty Mapes @ Movie Habit

  • Excerpt: Powerful images might have been stronger

Father’s Chair

Marcio Sallem @ Em Cartaz [Portuguese]

GLOW: The Story of the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: What this documentary does best is to reveal the women behind the often outlandish make-up and costumes, as well as some of the men behind the scenes.

The Great Magician

Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: There is little magic in The Great Magician, a would-be throwback to the fun movies of the olden days that fails to conjure up much of a good time. Tony Leung gives his usual excellent performance as the illusionist looking to stop a revolution and restore love to his life, but corny digital effects and an even cornier script keep him from pulling off any tricks of merit.

It Was the Son

Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]

The Mole

Jean-François Vandeuren @ Panorama-cinema.com

The Patience Stone

Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix

Shun Li and the Poet

Paulo Peralta @ CinEuphoria [Portuguese]
