Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesSo what’s new this weekend? Chappie and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

For today, we’ll take a look at the futuristic technology “thriller” Chappie, which is about a robot which has it’s own “consciousness.”

“In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. But now, the people are fighting back. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. As powerful, destructive forces start to see Chappie as a danger to mankind and order, they will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo and ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.”

My take: While I’ll certainly wait until this is $0.01 on DVD – I find the concept interesting.

For one, in case you haven’t wondered – movies often are “prophetic.” Not really, but it’s apparent that the elite in Hollywood know what is coming soon (i.e., Minority Report – Targeted advertising, etc.) And this movie kind of portrays an already “mechanized” police force, and the very deep research into “Artificial Intelligence (A.I.).” So it can only make one wonder “what is next?”

However, there is always some kind of sensitivity embedded deep within many big-picture productions. Almost sickening, actually – that they “know” where humanity is heading, but still offer some kind of emotion and humility tucked into the final product. Kind of strange how the double-edged sword works sometimes.

(Note: That if and when “SHTF,” there will be little humanity exhibited until the dust settles… just MHO…)

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesNew this weekend is Focus, starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie.

“A con artiist (Will Smith) takes on an inexperienced apprentice in this crime comedy from the filmmaking duo behind Crazy Stupid Love, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.”

For one, you might want to be leery about this movie. Because when you have THREE trailers, that paint a completely different “picture” for what the movie is about, it’s a warning sign. (Trailer #3 was the least painful – the original trailer was mind-numbing).

And the fact that very little “critic” commentary exists, probably means it sucks. Yet 20 million people were intrigued by the trailer – it will likely be considered a box-office “success.” Oh well.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOpening this weekend is a flick called Hot Tub Time Machine 2. It’s the sequel to the 2010 Hot Tub Time Machine.

“Hot Tub Time Machine” follows a group of best friends who’ve become bored with their adult lives: Adam has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou is a party guy who can’t find the party; Nick’s wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob won’t leave his basement. After, a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads’ pounding, in the year 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their futures – one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!

Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink returns to the helm for this sequel set 10 years in the future, and starring Rob Corddry, Adam Scott, Clark Duke, and Craig Robinson.

These flicks may not be considered sophisticated, but sometimes a nonsensical diversion is just what the doctor ordered!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesTwo new flicks this weekend that you’ll hear about: Fifty Shades of Grey (which I won’t even go there) and Kingsman: The Secret Service.

The trailer for Kingsman looks quite “fun,” and is filled with tons of special effects (although the target audience is probably teenage kids.)

“Kingsman: The Secret Service tells the story of a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency’s ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius.”

Again, we’ll wait till “home viewing” is available and decide then!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOne new release this weekend looks like it might be worth a watch: Jupiter Ascending – starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis.

“From the streets of Chicago to the far-flung galaxies whirling through space, “Jupiter Ascending” tells the story of Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), who was born under a night sky, with signs predicting she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people’s houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Channing Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along-her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.”

What I find interesting is that critics are heavily panning this flick. And I suspect that it’s because it’s above the average intellect level, and requires a little thinking than they’re used to. People can’t “connect the dots” anymore, and expect bite-sized, moronic entertainment. But I could be wrong.

Either way, I think Channing Tatum’s dye job looks painfully artificial in the movie – but I’ll definitely put it on my Blu Ray list when released this summer or fall. Why the heck not!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesA few new releases this weekend over at Bow Tie Cinemas in Hoboken. One I would NOT recommend – which is Black or White starring Kevin Costner, which is trying to play on the whole “race” issue that the media is hyper-focused on (and it probably throws a few mind-programs into the mix). Stay away.

Another one that is at least interesting is Project Almanac, where some kids screw around with time travel, and all the problems that would theoretically come along with it.

While I wouldn’t waste my cash on seeing that in theaters – I guess I’d pick that one if I had some gift certificates burning a hole in my pockets.
