Weekend Openings: 7/19/2013


Nothing says mid-summer blockbuster quite like a geriatric action comedy led by none other than John McClane.  In Red 2, Bruce Willis reunites with his gang of retired operatives for another go at stopping crime.  Speaking of reteamings, Nicolas Winding Refn and muse Ryan Gosling join forces again in their much-anticipated beautifully brutal crime thriller Only God Forgives.  If you thought a team of retired operatives is weird, R.I.P.D. spins an even more interesting angles when Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges, a duo of dead cops, seek out their murderers.  And of course, we have another superfluous animated feature joining the bunch this weekend with Dreamworks’  incredibly novel Turbo.

When not tallying Brad Pitt's countless and marvelously resonant instances of on-screen eating, your very own Remy is experimenting with exciting new recipes from Gusteau's cookbook. And when I have some more spare time? What am I doing? I'm quietly judging film. A disagreement, you say? Well, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
