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.

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!

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!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesNot much new playing this weekend with the exception of Taken 3 – starring Liam Neeson.

At first – I thought “Boy, the third installment of a cookie-cutter revenge action movie series?”

Well, after reading the reviews for the first two (overwhelmingly positive – mainly because it “rose to the top” of this genre of film) – I decided to buy used Blu-Rays (about $12 for both delivered!) And by the time I get around to watching those, Taken 3 will probably be out on home video too.

Here’s the synopsis for Taken 3:

“Bryan Mills’ reconciliation with his ex-wife is tragically cut short when she is brutally murdered. Consumed with rage, and framed for the crime, he goes on the run to evade the relentless pursuit of the CIA, FBI and the police. For one last time, Mills must use his “particular set of skills,” to track down the real killers, exact his unique brand of justice, and protect the only thing that matters to him now – his daughter.”

It appears that negative reviews outweighed the positive – but fans of the franchise will still pay to see it.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesArriving in Hoboken a week after release, is fun for “children of all ages,” Into The Woods.

“Into the Woods” is a modern twist on several of the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella (Anna Kendrick), Little Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford), Jack and the Beanstalk (Daniel Huttlestone), and Rapunzel (MacKenzie Mauzy)-all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife (James Corden & Emily Blunt), their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch (Meryl Streep) who has put a curse on them.”

Got mostly good reviews, if you’re considering paying a premium for the big screen and immediate viewing pleasure. Otherwise you can wait until it’s available for less next year. Have fun!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesWith that stupid movie The Interview out of the equation at theaters – you might be torn between two other movies to waste your money on this weekend. You have Unbroken (over-hyped Angelina Jolie directed flick), a supposedly “true story” about some Olympian / Prisoner of War. What turned me off was the number of reviewers who all agreed that there was no emotional connection to any of the characters. Reason enough not to see it.

Then you have The Gambler, starring Mark Wahlberg. Also receiving so-so reviews, but the subject matter seems more accessible to audiences. “Both an English professor and a high-stakes gambler, Bennett bets it all when he borrows from a gangster (Michael Kenneth Williams) and offers his own life as collateral. Always one step ahead, Bennett pits his creditor against the operator of a gambling ring (Alvin Ing) and leaves his dysfunctional relationship with his wealthy mother (Jessica Lange) in his wake. He plays both sides, immersing himself in an illicit, underground world while garnering the attention of Frank (John Goodman), a loan shark with a paternal interest in Bennett’s future. As his relationship with a student (Brie Larson) deepens, Bennett must take the ultimate risk for a second chance…”

Too bad Bow Tie didn’t opt to show a good movie – like Wild starring Reese Witherspoon. Seems like a decent story.
