Welcome back 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 theatres 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.
Very little to report this week - I’ve been extremely busy lately and haven’t had the chance to see two very different films that are high on my list: Man of Steel and This is the End. I’m not sure I’ll have time for both this weekend, but I’m hoping to see at least one on Sunday night. Reviews will be forthcoming after that, and I’ll be seeing a few independent films in the coming weeks as well.
New to DVD
Dead Man’s Burden (mixed bag): Anyone who loves a good Western might enjoy this film, while those who aren’t fans of the genre likely won’t. A small cast, led by Clare Bowen of “Nashville,” and an even smaller universe make for a rather dull and unengaging story, without much creativity or appeal. Hardly essential viewing.
