Get Reviews of 'Iron Man 3,' 'Kon-Tiki,' 'ChristCORE' and More in This Week's Film Roundup
Published May 03, 2013As heat waves start to roll in across Canada, keep cool by heading to your local theatre to catch some of this week's must-see films. We've chosen a few you may want to check out, but if these don't catch your attention, head on over to our Recently Reviewed section for reviews on even more new releases.
First up is the long-awaited sequel Iron Man 3 (pictured). This time around, Lethal Weapon writer Shane Black has been brought in to inject his brand of sarcastic action humour into the franchise, but how does the film stack up against the rest of the trilogy?
Next up, filmmaker Justin Ludwig profiles a group of youth taking Satan out of metal in the Christian rock documentary ChristCORE. Although the film suffers from a lack of clarity, Ludwig makes up for a muddled storyline with strong cinematography that let the pictures do the talking.
Canadian filmmaker Michael McGowan returns with Still Mine, the story of an 80-something New Brunswick berry farmer whose life unravels as his wife succumbs to dementia. And finally, we have Joachim Rønning and Epsen Sandberg's Kon-Tiki, the Norwegian biopic that details Thor Heyerdahl's attempt to cross the Pacific Ocean to prove Peruvians could have inhabited French Polynesia in pre-Colombian times. But is this Best Foreign Language Film 2012 Oscar nominee as boring as it sounds? You'll have to click to find out.
Of course, that's not all the films in theatres this week. Check out our Recently Reviewed section to get reviews on even more new movies.
