Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesThis weekend’s new movie is called Fury starring Brad Pitt – and it’s essentially about a tank unit in World War II. Sort of along the lines of a much better movie called “Memphis Belle” which came out 23 years ago.

“April, 1945. As the Allies make their final push in the European Theatre, a battle-hardened army sergeant named Wardaddy (Brad Pitt) commands a Sherman tank and her five-man crew on a deadly mission behind enemy lines. Outnumbered and outgunned, and with a rookie soldier thrust into their platoon, Wardaddy and his men face overwhelming odds in their heroic attempts to strike at the heart of Nazi Germany.”

It probably only got “good reviews,” because the “evil Germans” were getting blown up (“war porn”). Our advice if you’re thinking about seeing it? Rent it if you must.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOh boy. It appears to be the “lull” period in the Hoboken Cinemas. A couple mediocre flicks released this weekend. The Judge (Robert Downey, Jr., Robert Duvall) looked like a semi-decent trailer – but got evenly mixed-reviews (i.e., it’s probably not worth paying top dollar for first run big screen theater prices). And Dracula Untold, a “gothic” flick that appears to be a mix between “300″ and “Twilight.” Wasn’t sure which trailer to show – but I think the blood-curling one is better material.

For one, Dracula got very weak reviews (not that those matter anyway), but what I’m more concerned with is this trend of similar movies. On the video streaming networks, Dracula out-viewed The Judge at least 3 to 1, which means that you can guess which demographic cares more. The movies for the “Millennial” generation are downright pathetic in my opinion. Sociological messages embedded, along with all the superficial garbage which defines that section of the population. In other words, the more complicated and thought-provoking, the lesser chance you’ll have at grasping the attention of a younger person. The more “CGI,” and pseudo-desperate situations – the better. And the fact that one movie is an “A.D.D. Friendly” 90 minutes, and the other is two and a half hours – further adds to my observation about demographics.

On a side note – I watched an old-school classic the other day. Remember the line “Listen you deaf fuck, I gave you a chance, and you BLEW IT!”? Very good performance from an actor you wouldn’t expect a little bit of character finesse from. You can get a Blu-Ray triple feature starring this actor for just 10 bucks. Not a bad purchase at all for an all-star cast (Rambo and Lock Up were the other two if the quote didn’t clue you in…)

Enjoy!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOf the new batch of movies coming out this weekend, at least one looks like it may be a compelling enough to see: Gone Girl, starring Ben Affleck.

“Gone Girl unearths the secrets at the heart of a modern marriage. On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) reports that his beautiful wife, Amy (Rosamund Pike), has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick’s portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife?”

The movie got mostly glowing reviews – but those who panned it utterly trashed the piece. Makes you wonder sometimes if people even have genuine opinions anymore, or are they influenced by other means, historical experiences or stereotypes. Plus, with movie trailers almost always better than the full theatrical version – perhaps the best way to decide if you’re going to see a movie is by the movie poster and cast listing alone. Haha!

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOne of two new movies opening this weekend is The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington (The other is yet another animated flick).

“In The Equalizer, Denzel Washington plays McCall, a man who believes he has put his mysterious past behind him and dedicated himself to beginning a new, quiet life. But when McCall meets Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), a young girl under the control of ultra-violent Russian gangsters, he can’t stand idly by – he has to help her. Armed with hidden skills that allow him to serve vengeance against anyone who would brutalize the helpless, McCall comes out of his self-imposed retirement and finds his desire for justice reawakened. If someone has a problem, if the odds are stacked against them, if they have nowhere else to turn, McCall will help. He is The Equalizer..”

The movie has equally mixed reviews – so you’ll either try to enjoy it for what it is, “entertainment,” or you can critique it like wine snob.

Remember the original Equalizer?

I’d be interested a little, because I was a big fan of the 80′s TV show of the same name, starring Edward Woodward, and his slick Jaguar – along with musical score from Police drummer Stewart Copeland.

Bring back memories for anyone?

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOne of three new movies opening this weekend is A Walk Among the Tombstones, starring Liam Neeson.

“Matt Scudder, an ex-NYPD cop who now works as an unlicensed private investigator operating just outside the law. When Scudder reluctantly agrees to help a heroin trafficker (Dan Stevens) hunt down the men who kidnapped and then brutally murdered his wife, the PI learns that this is not the first time these men have committed this sort of twisted crime… nor will it be the last. Blurring the lines between right and wrong, Scudder races to track the deviants through the backstreets of New York City before they kill again.”

The movie has limited reviews – which may make you doubt whether it’s good – but it seems to be getting decent marks despite it being a “cookie cutter” type thriller. Will add to the used DVD list before the end of the year (probably around November).

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOpening tonight is a little bit of a “blast from the past,” as Brooklyn Crime Drama “The Drop” co-stars the late Sopranos lead James Gandolfini.

“THE DROP follows lonely bartender Bob Saginowski (Tom Hardy) through a covert scheme of funneling cash to local gangsters – “money drops” in the underworld of Brooklyn bars. Under the heavy hand of his employer and cousin Marv (James Gandolfini), Bob finds himself at the center of a robbery gone awry and entwined in an investigation that digs deep into the neighborhood’s past.”

The flick received mostly positive reviews – and Tom Hardy is said to have given a good acting performance. Hmm. Might be worth checking out if we’re bored this weekend. Something that doesn’t scream cartoon or franchise or overly-commercial might warrant spending a few bucks.
