New Movies In Theaters This Friday, July 2, 2010
Wondering what movies are coming out to theaters this Friday, July 2, 2010? Well, this weekend it’s going to be all about Twilight, which I already saw (read my review here), so I’m left with The Last Airbender and although it’s getting really bad reviews, as a fan of the original series, I have to see it. But that’s me, there are a couple other movies you can choose from this weekend. Hope the list below helps.
Great Directors (Limited)
Great Directors Synopsis: Angela Ismailos’ GREAT DIRECTORS, is a celebration of films and filmmaking starring ten of the world’s most acclaimed, provocative, and individualistic living directors. The documentary, which had its world premiere at the 2009 Venice Film Festival, is a deeply personal and intimate look at the art of cinema and the artists who create it, and features original, in-depth conversations with world-class filmmakers Bernardo Bertolucci, David Lynch, Stephen Frears, Agnes Varda, Ken Loach, Liliana Cavani, Todd Haynes, Catherine Breillat, Richard Linklater and John Sayles. These interviews more than just chronicle Ismailos’ encounters with ten remarkable men and women. Extensively illuminated by clips and historical archives from the subjects’ works, they also reveal the distinctive personalities who created the timeless images that have long inspired Ismailos’ and all of us. Intercutting among the filmmakers in a freely associative way, Ismailos explores each director’s artistic evolution; the role of politics and history on their work; their feelings about the other great directors who inspired them (with Bertolucci paying homage to Pasolini, Breillat to Bergman, and Haynes to Fassbinder, etc.); and the agony and ecstasy of being an artist in a medium that is, paradoxically, also an industry.
The Last Airbender
The Last Airbender Synopsis: Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction. Caught between combat and courage, Aang (Noah Ringer) discovers he is the lone Avatar with the power to manipulate all four elements. Aang teams with Katara (Nicola Peltz), a Waterbender, and her brother, Sokka (Jackson Rathbone), to restore balance to their war-torn world.
Based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon animated TV series, the live-action feature film “The Last Airbender” is the opening chapter in Aang’s struggle to survive.
Love Ranch (Limited)
Love Ranch Synopsis: Grace and Charlie Bontempo are a husband/wife team who own and run one of Nevada’s first legalized brothel ranches. Their lives are irrevocably altered when Armando Bruza, a world famous heavy weight boxer from South America, is brought to the Ranch to train as part of Charlie’s ever expanding entrepreneurial empire. Plans quickly go awry when Bruza comes between Grace and Charlie as an unforeseen romantic triangle develops that erupts into uncontrollable passion and murder.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse – Review
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse Synopsis: In THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger as Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire continues her quest for revenge. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between Edward and Jacob – knowing that her decision has the potential to ignite the struggle between vampire and werewolf. With her graduation quickly approaching, Bella is confronted with the most important decision of her life.
Wild Grass (Limited) – Review
Wild Grass Synopsis: Based on a novel by French writer Christian Gailly, WILD GRASS is the whimsical, romantic and wildly imaginative tale of two strangers, Marguerite and Georges (played by Resnais regulars Sabine Azéma and André Dussollier) whose paths meet when George finds Marguerite’s wallet after her purse was snatched. George is shaken out of his unadventurous existence by this discovery and he starts developing an obsessive infatuation with a woman he has only seen through her photo IDs. How will Marguerite, a single dentist with a shock of red hair and a passion for aviation – she holds a pilot’s license – respond to George’s increasingly frantic attempts at making a connection with her?
