Longtime local film critic Hap Erstein gives us his take on some of the latest movies.
A bit of a slow weekend at the movies. This is the time of year when a horror film ("The Possession") can make it to #1 at the box office. If that's not your style, here are some other choices at theaters, along with reviews from Hap Erstein with PalmBeachArtsPaper.com.
"The Words" - Bradley Cooper and Dennis Quaid star in a film that is what Hap calls a "morality tale", and what appears to be part romance as well. It's a confusing story about someone stealing a manuscript, taking credit for a book and that story being featured in a book. Get it?
"The Cold Light of Day" - A suspense thriller starring Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver.
"For a Good Time Call" - The big names in this film come from the cameo performances by folks like Seth Rogen and Kevin Smith. Hap waxes on about the star of the movie, a young woman named Ari Graynor.
