New movie releases for the weekend of October 28
Moore's October surprise arrived at the Gateway Film Center this week. The filmed version of his one-man-show, which took place earlier this month in Ohio, actually aims to bridge the divide of this election.
A story of three women (Kristen Stewart, Laura Dern, Michelle Williams) whose tales intersect in small-town America, this is the latest film from the superb Kelly Reichardt ("Meek's Cutoff").
Honestly, what could be better than "Halloween" on Halloween? John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic is still an all-time great. It screens at 9:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 31, at the GFC. Come early for a meetup of the horror aficionado group Killumbus.
This coming-of-age tale is like "Kids" meets "Salesman." It clocks in at nearly three hours, but it has a flow all its own. Wildly original and one of the year's best. (4 stars)
The best-selling whodunit novel is elevated past its pulpy roots by a superb lead performance from Emily Blunt. Like "Gone Girl" gone good. (3 stars)
Tom Cruise returns in this long-awaited (?) sequel to the 2012 actioner. This unseasonably warm weather is a pretty good setup for a summer blockbuster-esque popcorn flick like this.
A suburban couple (Isla Fisher and Zach Galifianakis) gets caught up in international espionage when a debonair couple (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot) moves into the neighborhood. Hilarity ensues.
Ben Affleck plays an autistic accountant who is also an action star in this bizarrely self-serious action flick. (2½ stars)
