Published Jun 20, 2014Today is your day, film buffs — every Friday we treat cinephiles to our latest film reviews, so they can stay up to date on what's hitting the silver screen. Today's film review roundup is filled with reviews of the latest and greatest films to hit theatres. Sit back, pop some popcorn and read on — we'll help you decide what to sit down and watch this weekend.
Kicking off today's roundup is our review of Clint Eastwood's latest directorial project, Jersey Boys. What happens when characteristically serious Eastwood takes on the film adaptation of a lighthearted Broadway romp? Read the review to find out what comes of this unlikely pairing.
When the triumph of a Bildungsroman meets sci-fi elements like time travel, you get Richie Mehta's new film, I'll Follow You Down. Our reviewer called Haley Joel Osment's (The Sixth Sense, A.I. Artificial Intelligence) performance "exhilarating" — follow the link to hear more about Osment's career-defining role.
Also, read our review of The Life and Crimes of Doris Payne, a documentary exploring the life of the charming, pathologically lying, elderly thief known as Doris Payne. Payne plays a Robin Hood-esque role as a noble criminal, using her stolen funds to help her mother escape an abusive relationship. Payne's story will enlighten audiences while warming their hearts.
Finally, Blood Glacier put a mutant-horror spin on the looming threat of global warming. Our reviewer noted that the concept of the film is innovative and relevant — but, you'll have to read the review to find out if this ecological thriller hit its mark.
