Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesTrailers are very tricky and misleading little “summaries” of movies (well, you probably all knew that already). It’s amazing that they can twist and mislead a potential customer into “buying” whatever they’re selling. Wait a minute, isn’t that everyday news headlines? Oh, but I digress. One movie opening today is Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp.

If any of you ever saw Lawnmower Man a few decades ago – essentially the same general concept. “A terminally ill scientist uploads his mind to a computer. This grants him power beyond his wildest dreams, and soon he becomes unstoppable.”

But this review stood out as probably the most accurate: “I am so tired of movies where all that matters is how cool it looks. The plot was ridiculous. At the end of the movie a group of twenty-something guys were exiting ahead of us and one of the guys said, “that was pretty excellent!” I thought, “Well, I guess it’s working for its demographic.”

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesHere we go again – another animated 3D movie Rio 2, featuring the “voices of” Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg.

“It’s a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids in RIO 2, after they’re hurtled from that magical city to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all – his father-in-law.”

As with most movies – it got mixed reviews – but this stood out as calling most new movies for what they are: “Between the film’s white-world-order depiction of a multicultural society and its ham-fisted treatment of an ostensibly pro-ecology agenda, “Rio 2″ is a confused piece of animation propaganda.

If you’re awake, you already knew that. For the rest of you… sorry!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesAre 3D movies actually drawing customers? Adult customers? Or is it “just for the kids?” And what about the number of movies that are “artificially produced” to some degree or another? Whether it’s laden with special effects end to end, or a cartoon, or super-natural – what ever happened to plain ‘ole good “stories?”

Anyway – one of those options this week is yet another superhero flick Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Captain America got overwhelming positive reviews, such as “Perfect paced, ingeniously scripted, and constantly compelling, Captain America: The Winter Soldier is, first and foremost, a top-tier thriller…which just happens to have a superhero in the middle of the action.” So maybe they’re catching on an improving the “entertainment” value of such multi-million dollar productions, who knows. For the price they charge these days, I’d expect nothing less.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOn last week’s Hoboken Movie Lineup entry – a reader complained about the utterly lame selection of flicks, and why “smart” movies like The Grand Budapest Hotel were not even an option.

Well, they’re in luck – it starts playing this afternoon in Hoboken.

“The adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend.”

The reason we might very well see this movie is this one positive recommendation: “If you like to be amazed, see something out of the ordinary, are able to go with a flow, you will LOVE this movie.” Because that is the way we flow.

Oh – and avoid seeing “Noah” at all costs. Too many religious and political “revisions” in there. Save yourself the time.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesNew this week is Divergent – starring Shailene Woodley and Theo James (who are these people?)

Despite bad reviews like this: “With action scenes that can’t raise a pulse, an predictable chaste romance, and plodding, formulaic expansion of its mythology, Divergent has the drab sogginess of something reheated,” many people still apparently want to see it (fans of the book for sure – plus the 10+ million YouTube views…)

You ever wonder what kind of “social conditioning” message they’re trying to send? Movies like Hunger Games had a similar “societal” categorization, etc. Wonder what the next big series of movies like this will be…

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOne of the newest movies playing in Hoboken is the latest installment of the “Need for Speed” series of adrenaline-rush car racing fantasies.

“Framed for a crime he didn’t commit, muscle car mechanic and street racer Tobey (Aaron Paul) gets out of prison determined to settle the score with the man responsible for his false conviction.”

I mean really – does anyone in the world actually live like this? If so, where? Certainly isn’t around here.

But I guess enough punks go to see these movies to make them profitable – or else they wouldn’t keep making them. They’re not getting my money. Ever!
