This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (May 3-5, 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

A Case of You

Kenji Fujishima @ The House Next Door

The Dyatlov Pass Incident

Jason Pirodsky @ Expats.cz

  • Excerpt: Entirely underwhelming, and almost completely devoid of scares; anyone looking for insight into the actual case will be doubly disappointed.

The Fruit Hunters

[New Today] Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

  • Excerpt: The Fruit Hunters” traverses the globe, following fruit fanatics (including actor Bill Pullman) from private orchards to farmers markets and deep into the rain forest. Amid these journeys, Chang examines the historical and spiritual significance of fruit and environmental concerns that affect sustainable crops.

The Machine

Kenji Fujishima @ The House Next Door

The Machine

Scott Nye @ Battleship Pretension

  • Excerpt: Because Tony’s actually in control of himself this time – he even finds a way around those pesky panic attacks – the danger is far less palpable. Those battles are spectacular, but not enough to eclipse the spectacular character work – and, by extension, cinema – we’d seen previously.

The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernández

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: The longevity and appeal of Ernest Borgnine goes a long way to redeeming The Man Who Shook the Hand of Vicente Fernández. The slightly unpolished film’s faults are too large to ignore, but do get overshadowed by Borgnine’s touching final film performance, which may be reason enough to try and track this down for a viewing.
