Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesInstead of a semi-compelling move such as The Giver opening this weekend, Bow Tie Cinemas decided to go with something that requires a lot less thought – a goofy comedy called “Let’s Be Cops.”

“Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.”

Got pretty much horrible reviews (i.e., super-duper waste of money), and will probably last only a week or two. You’ll probably get the same amount of chuckles from this trailer – for free.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesA very compelling movie opening today at Bow Tie Cinemas: Boyhood, which was filmed with the same cast over the past 12 years.

“Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.”

What will make me add this movie to the list is director Richard Linklater – who creates some of the more enriching movies – that actually have interesting, thought-provoking dialogue. One of my favorites was the rotoscoped animated movie A Scanner Darkly.

Those who have the capability to think will certainly enjoy this movie.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOpening today at Bow Tie Cinemas is Guardians of the Galaxy, Marvel’s latest sci-fi action-hero movie.

“An action-packed, epic space adventure, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy’s fate in the balance.”

The movie has received overwhelmingly positive reviews – with practically everyone enjoying the entire production beginning to end. From cutting edge special effects, edgy humor and (gasp) deep character development. I have to say it doesn’t look bad at all. We’ll put this on our used Blu-Ray list once it’s released!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesJeez Louise! Another “remake” of a production done countless times in the past! Holy crap, does “originality” no longer capture the imagination of the masses?

Hercules opens tonight, and is billed as a “revisionist take on the classic myth…” What? “Revisionist?” Isn’t that what they’re doing to our ENTIRE PRINTED HISTORY OF THE WORLD? They no longer have shame in anything anymore it seems.

Anyway – this “flick” has not really been reviewed, which typically means it’s horrible across the board (with the exception of professionally produced special effects). Yet 96% of the movie-going morons “want to see” this movie.

I do have to admit, that Dwayne Johnson is a likable, charismatic character in all his movies. He seems like a pretty good guy too, so I’m not bashing him whatsoever. He’s just another pawn in the game. My bet is that this movie will be on the shelves at your local Target store before the summer is over. What’s that, like nine weeks? At the very least, it will certainly be at the checkout “impulse buy” racks before Black Friday.

As a side note- we recently received a Blu-Ray copy of Under the Skin starring Scarlett Johansson, which we’ll watch one of these days when we have free time. Home movies on a sweet flat panel are just as good as dropping $50 or more on a night out at the “theater.”

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesThis weekend we have a violent sequel to a poorly rated movie series entitled “The Purge.” The concept is, that our ever-so-loving “government” gives 12 hours a year for everyone to commit any crime (including murder) without punishment. This follow-up is called The Purge: Anarchy.”

Let me get this out of the way first. 99% of the idiots that roam this earth automatically assume that “Anarchy” is equivalent to mayhem, murder, and “Mad Max” style lawlessness.

Thanks to repeated nonsense that is spewed out of our “media empire” out there, you’d be hard to convince anyone otherwise. However, if you had one single ounce of brain-matter, you’d know that NO, that is not the case. Anarchy is not “kill everyone, last man standing, planet of the apes, run for your lives.” What Anarchy truly is – is more like a “VOLUNTARY, COOPERATIVE” life. I’ll keep it at that for the moment. We’ll talk about that more one day.

Anyway – this sequel just does more to propagate FALSE pretenses about what “anarchy” really is. So I won’t give it much more than that. Propaganda and social conditioning. Avoid at all costs.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesHere we go. Another “re-hash” of a classic movie genre – Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

“A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier. They reach a fragile peace, but it proves short-lived, as both sides are brought to the brink of a war that will determine who will emerge as Earth’s dominant species.”

Oh boy. This movie has received almost overwhelmingly positive reviews from both audiences and critics. That can say a lot, depending on how you look at it. We watched the trailer – and hoped we could detect some common sense – but it was too vague to determine if there were hidden political and sociological “messages” embedded into this movie script (as there are most “mainstream” Hollywood productions.)

So we’ll leave our “prognosis” of this mental thrill-ride out of this equation at this time. We just pray there are still “critical thinkers” in our populace that are above the ape-like thinkers that actually exist in the wild today.

PS – that horrible “Tammy” movie is still in theaters. Proof positive there are STILL dim-witted mentally-enslaved morons meandering around our parts…
