Here’s what’s new this week. I really don’t know what ‘The Transporter Refueled’ is about. A truck stop? And the sweet movie ‘Dope’ is re-opening. Check that one out. It’s a bit like if Spike Lee made a John Hughes film. Also don’t miss ‘Mistress America’, from Noah Baumbach and co-written with Greta Gerwig, opening Friday at the Nickelodeon.
It’s looking like a bit of a lackluster week for movies. Your best bet is probably No Escape, if only because of Owen Wilson and Lake Bell. If you don’t know Lake Bell, she wrote, directed and starred in a great movie about voiceover work in Hollywood called In A World“>In a World.
Also worth checking out is Best of Enemies, a documentary about a series of debates between Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley in 1968, starting Friday at the Nickelodeon.
Dinosaurs of more than one sort are featured in this week’s new movies. We’ve got the re-animated type in Jurassic World and the musical type in the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy. And since it’s the summer there are a couple movie series happening. The Nickelodeon just kicked off their Southern Gothic Series and Regal Cinemas has their family-oriented Summer Movie Express.
