Other new movie releases for the weekend of July 8

Brad Keefe, Columbus Alive
"Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates"

New release:

"Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates"

Two bro brothers (Adam Devine and Zac Efron) find wedding dates (Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza) through an online ad. Hilarity ensues.

Limited screenings:

"Heavy Metal" in 35mm

The Gateway Film Center brings in another relic of animation for grown-ups with the 1981 sci-fi anthology cult classic. It features sex, violence and, duh, heavy metal.

Alive recommends:

"The Neon Demon"

Nicholas Winding Refn's latest is the definition of divisive, and it's definitely not for everyone. Ask your doctor if "Neon Demon" is right for you. (3 ½ stars)

Also in theaters:

"Independence Day: Resurgence"

Well, two decades later "Independence Day" got a sequel that delivered lots of alien-fighting flash but gives viewers virtually nothing to grasp onto emotionally or character-wise. Boo. (1 ½ stars)
