Published Nov 04, 2011November's first box office weekend is upon us and Exclaim.ca has rounded up this week's new releases to help you decide which flicks are or aren't worth seeing. Check out our Recently Reviewed section to read full reviews of the picks below.
First off, Emilio Estevez directs his father Martin Sheen in The Way (pictured), which tells the tale of a grieving father on a spiritual journey. As Sheen's character wrestles with the journey left for him by his late son, the actor delivers a moving performance, but will it be enough for his first Oscar nod?
Changing up the pace is the action comedy Tower Heist, which follows the 99 percent, if you will, as they attempt to take back their wealth from one of New York's wealthiest. The flick stars comedy greats like Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick and Eddie Murphy, taking a funny approach to the ploys of the oft-ignored minimum-wagers.
There's also a Christmas-themed comedy out this week as stoner pals Harold and Kumar are back (this time in 3D) for A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas. Don't expect much intellect or sense, but there will be some laughs, as well as the return of Neil Patrick Harris.
Finally, for the romantics, Like Crazy hits theatres, sharing the story of a couple of love-struck kids who try to cope with the realities of a long distance relationship. It stars Felicity Jones and Anton Yelchin, who give admirable and somewhat improvised performances and the film's primary focus.
