Bow Tie Cinemas Movie Times Hoboken NJ

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOpening this weekend is The Imitation Game.

“During the winter of 1952, British authorities entered the home of mathematician, cryptanalyst and war hero Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch) to investigate a reported burglary. They instead ended up arresting Turing himself on charges of ‘gross indecency’, an accusation that would lead to his devastating conviction for the criminal offense of homosexuality – little did officials know, they were actually incriminating the pioneer of modern-day computing.

Famously leading a motley group of scholars, linguists, chess champions and intelligence officers, he was credited with cracking the so-called unbreakable codes of Germany’s World War II Enigma machine. An intense and haunting portrayal of a brilliant, complicated man, THE IMITATION GAME follows a genius who under nail-biting pressure helped to shorten the war and, in turn, save thousands of lives.”

Hmm. This and the rest of the movies playing this weekend don’t entice us. Will dust off some DVD’s if I feel like vegetating for a few hours – but most likely will be doing more active things!

Jewelry By Peter – Doomed

Jewelry By Peter no more

Jewelry By Peter over at 1102 Washington St. is now “No Jewelry by Anyone” (euphemism for “For Rent.”) They didn’t even last nine months. What a shame.

Their online presence is nil as well.

Note to future retailers: When you’re doing Groupons and boutique “crawls,” that usually lands you on some kind of “death watch” list.

Hoboken Movie Lineup: 1/16/2015

Bow Tie Cinemas Movie Times Hoboken NJ

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOpening this weekend is a movie with a timely “plot” called Blackhat, starring Chris Hemsworth. It’s one of those “hacker” movies where you have a mysterious hacker wreaking havoc, and a hero “hacker” to save the day.

“Set within the world of global cybercrime, Blackhat follows a furloughed convict and his American and Chinese partners as they hunt a high-level cybercrime network from Chicago to Los Angeles to Hong Kong to Jakarta.”

I’ll avoid this for two reasons. One, it’s directed by Michael Mann, who I believe “doesn’t have the knack” anymore – and the lead actor is so badly miscast that even the trailer sucks. He should be the dopey jock QB in some sophomoric teen flick. Next!
