Saturday Night Movie Recommendations with Abe

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies With Abe. I'm going to be providing a handy guide to a few choice movies currently playing in NYC as well as several films newly released on DVD. I’ll also aim to comment on those films I have not yet had the chance to see, and I invite you to add in your thoughts on any films I haven’t seen in the comments below. Understandably, some weeks will have considerably fewer releases to address than others.

Now Playing in NYC

I’ve been out of town on vacation in New England recently and didn’t have the chance to catch any new releases this week. I’m equally uninterested in The Expendables 2 and The Odd Life of Timothy Green, and I’d be willing to give Compliance a chance since it looks interesting. ParaNorman will probably be fun, and I imagine I’ll catch it on DVD.

New to DVD

Nothing I’ve seen this week, but I hear good things about The Hunger Games and last year’s Oscar nominee for Best Documentary, Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory.

Now on Netflix Instant Streaming

Seeking Justice (anti-recommended): This action thriller starring Nicolas Cage is exactly what you’d expect from such a film: senseless, illogical, infuriating, annoying, and ultimately unfulfilling. If Cage was Liam Neeson, this film might have been better, but, unfortunately, Cage can’t even shelter all the blame. Skip it!
