Published Feb 24, 2012While all eyes may be on to the Oscars come Sunday, there's plenty of new movies worth your time this weekend. Check out full reviews of the following highlights and more over at Exclaim!'s Recently Reviewed section.
First up, Jennifer Anniston and Paul Rudd star in David Wain's raunchy comedy Wanderlust (pictured), while Woody Harrelson plays a self-destructive L.A. cop in Oren Moverman's Rampart and Zhang Yimou delivers another visual wet dream with Flowers of War.
Meanwhile, Danny Glover stars in Jim Cliffe's psychological thriller Donovan's Echo; real Navy SEALS play, well, real Navy SEALS in Mike McCoy & Scott Waugh's combat flick Act of Valor; and Tyler Perry provides unintentional laughs with his hokey romantic drama Good Deeds.
Next, Snow tells the story of a young Sri Lankan woman piecing her life back together after the 2004 tsunami, while a man stalks his supposed doppelgänger in low-budget Canadian road movie Doppelgänger Paul.
Lastly, Antoine Charreyron delivers his directorial debut with the sinister animated 3D thriller The Prodigies, and Sean William Scott and Jay Baruchel star in Michael Dowse's bullshit-free portrayal of life as a hockey bruiser, Goon. One for hockey fans and non-hockey fans alike, this roughhouse comedy is our Exclaim! pick of the week.
