50 INLANDER MAY 2, 2013

Fri. - Sun.(925 AM)

all knew and loved has been transmogrified into something more serious and sinister. (Definitely don’t bring the kids to this one.) But fans seem to like it still, and if you can satisfy an  Evil Dead  junkie, I guess you’ve done something right. (SM) Rated R

FROM UP ON POPPY HILL

There’s something about Japanese animated films that captivates American audiences. We loved Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke  and  My Neighbor Totoro  for the thought-provoking themes, stunning animation and gripping plots.  Hayao Miyazaki, Studio Ghibli and  Goro Miyazaki have created yet another tale that discusses the dichotomy of change and tradition in Japanese culture. Now, see this newest addition to the Hayao ranks at a special showing at the Magic Lantern opening on April 19. (SM) Rated PG

G.I. JOE: RETALIATION

The last G.I. Joe movie meant different things to different people. For some, it was a revitalization of childhood heroes. For others, it was a two-hour-long Channing Tatum fest. Now, the G.I. Joes are it again. They have to fight the Cobra. They have to save their paychecks from a President who has attempted to disband them. They have to fly through the air. They have to impart subliminal messages of patriotism and a pro-military agenda. But this time, we have Dwayne Johnson, aka the Rock, and Bruce Willis, the Die Hard, to make the movie that much cooler. (SM) Rated PG-13

JURASSIC PARK 3D

You know this one. The island out in the middle of the ocean that — spoiler alert — is home to a whole bunch of dinosaurs thanks to the ingenuity of an eccentric billionaire and a mosquito trapped in amber. Twenty years after its blockbusting release, Jurassic Park has received an anniversary 3D treatment, bringing those big, gnarly beasts right up into your face. It might feel like a gimmick to see Spielberg’s film rolled back into theaters after so many years, but the 3D reminds us why the film was so impactful upon its initial arrival. (MB) Rated PG-13.

MUD

Two teenagers stumble across a ruggedly handsome fugitive (Matthew McConaughey) hiding in the Deep South from bounty hunters and the law. The boys decide to take matters into their own hands, making a pact to keep the dashing criminal hidden from hungry killers and help reunite him with his long lost love.  It’s nice to see McConaughey  continue his habit of appearing in movies that aren’t, by and large, romantic comedies. Let’s hope he keeps it up. (SM) Rated PG-13

OBLIVION

Jack (Tom Cruise) is a dude trying not to get captured by the alien Scavengers still scurrying around on planet Earth, still hanging out even though they lost the war with humans. (You’d think they’d take a hint and go  home, but no.) The Scavs are intent on causing trouble, and it’s Jack’s job, as a sort of roving Maytag repairman, to keep in the air the fleet of drone  weapons that are  protecting,

from Scav attack, the ginormous fusionreactor thingies that are turning Earth’s oceans into a  power source for Titan, a moon of Saturn, to which the human survivors  of the war have decamped, what with Earth reduced to a radioactive wasteland and all. (MJ) Rated PG-13

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN

Olympus Has Fallen — about an assault by North Korean terrorists on the White House — had me muttering to myself: “Why couldn’t this have been the latest Die Hard movie?” Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is a Secret Service agent shipped from a presidential protection detail to a desk job after tragically failing to save the life of the First Lady. Eighteen months later, as tensions escalate in the DMZ, those nasty North Koreans — led by the ruthless Kang (Rick Yune) — storm 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, ultimately taking the president (Aaron Eckhart) hostage. Can Banning save the day? (SR) Rated R

OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL

Despite being a CGI-heavy affair, Sam Raimi’s Oz feels incredibly alive. Fueled by the same gleeful energy that drove Raimi’s earliest work, it not only serves as a worthy tribute to the wonderland conceived by L. Frank Baum but also a celebration of moviemaking itself. This prequel to the 1939 classic fittingly opens with a circus sideshow circa 1905 where the ramshackle wooden structures instantly recall Evil Dead’s shoddy sets. This black-and-white chapter introduces Oscar “Oz” Diggs (James Franco), a lowrung magician/first-rate Lothario, who ends up in a tornado that lands him in a familiar Technicolor landscape. (CW) Rated PG.

PAIN & GAIN

The true story of a trio of bodybuilders in mid-’90s Miami who grab for the American Dream via the inept kidnapping of a wealthy gym client sits at the center of this sometimes wildly funny, often darkly gruesome Michael Bay film. Yup, the guy who brought us the Transformers movies still knows how to tell a great story, as he did in Bad Boys and The Rock. Speaking of the Rock, Dwayne Johnson gives the performance of his career here, as an ex-con who sees the light, then falters. There’s great ensemble work between

him, Mark Wahlberg and Anthony Mackie, some comic nastiness from Tony Shalhoub as their victim, and an air of calm from Ed Harris as a private detective. Lots of fun, but definitely not for the squeamish. (ES) Rated R

THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES

A circus performer/motorcycle badass/ thief/new father (Ryan Gosling) turns to robbing banks to support his brand new baby son and chip-off-her-shoulder lover. A rookie, idealist cop (Bradley Cooper), complete with hopes and dreams, tries to stop the robberies in an attempt to move up the ranks in a corrupt police department. Who is right? Who is wrong? Does the love for your family, or rather, the love of the law win out in the end? Watch the 15-year-long journey of two people as their stories entangle, altering their lives in heavy ways. (SM) Rated R

QUARTET

Centered around four musically inclined retirees and starring everybody’s favorite Downton Abbey actress Maggie Smith, this movie melds together our love for music and old people. The drama that ensues at this retirement center threatens the success of the annual gala concert, leaving the audience with one question: will the show go on? (KS) Rated PG-13

SIDE EFFECTS

The newest collaboration between director Steven Soderbergh and writer Scott Z. Burns (Contagion, The Informant!) is their best. It’s a twisty-turny mysterythriller about money, sex, (prescription) drugs, sleepwalking, and lots more. Great writing and direction, every actor is spoton. At Magic Lantern (ES) Rated R

STARBUCK

David is a typical slacker who, already in his mid 40s, learns that his girlfriend is pregnant and he’s going to be a father. The only problem is that he then discovers that his serial sperm donations in his younger days resulted in the birth of 142 people, some of whom are now filing a class-action lawsuit against him. This French film has gotten major attention overseas and now’s your chance to see how a non-Apatow comedy looks. At Magic Lantern (MB) Rated R. n
