Published Apr 20, 2012This Friday, as always, Exclaim! has gathered up our reviews of all the latest films. To get the full lowdown on the following highlights, head over to our Recently Reviewed section.
First up, Morgan Spurlock explores the trials and tribulations of aspiring comic creators/dealers with his heartening if at times cringeworthy documentary Comic Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope (pictured), while Zac Efron and Taylor Schilling star in Scott Hicks's schmaltzy tale of romantic fate, The Lucky One.
Also out this week, it's a "battle of the sexes" in Tim Story's quirky romantic comedy, Think Like a Man, based on the best-selling dating book by Steve Harvey. Plus, a trio of do-gooder girls set out to revolutionize life at their East Coast University in Whit Stillman's offbeat Damsels in Distress, and Kang Je-kyu delivers the most expensive film in Korean cinematic history with WWII drama My Way.
Lastly, it's a good week for nature lovers, as Alastair Fothergill and Mark Linfield bring us the story of an orphaned chimp named Oscar in Chimpanzee, while Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Greg MacGillivray explores the plight of arctic polar bears with his visually stunning enviro-doc To the Arctic.
