This looks like a fairly slow week for new releases. Maybe Labor Day weekend will be a bit more memorable. “The Apparition” is a PG-13 scary movie about the haunting of a University parapsychology experiment with Ashley Green, Sebastian Stan, Tom Gelton, etc. “General Education” is another college picture about Levi Collins, about to go to school on a tennis scholarship, but he finds love and screws up his senior year of high school, failing his science class. So he goes to summer school to try to make it up before his parents find out. “Hit and Run” is a road trip flick featuring Dax Shepard who breaks out of the witness protection program to drive his fiance (Kristen Bell) to Los Angeles to grab a once in a lifetime opportunity in this comedy. “Little White Lies” is a French film about a restaurant owner who invites friends and family to his beach house for their annual vacation, but an accident sets off a tragic chain of events that sorely tests everyone in the group. “Premium Rush” is a Joseph Gordon-Levitt film about bicycle messengers in New York City who take their lives into their hands every time the head out to street to get the message delivered across Manhattan. One particular delivery takes every bit of skill he’s got to get through and survive the day. “Samsara” is a documentary filmed over 4 years and 25 countries in 70mm to breathtaking imagery and explore man’s relationship to nature and to the world, and to each other. “Sleepwalk with Me” is the filmed version on a one man autobiographical show performed by playwright/filmmaker/stand-up comic’s look at life. The final two “Thunderstruck” is a story about a young basketball fan who suddenly switches his talents with Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma Thunder all-star basketball player and he suddenly becomes the star of his high school team, whereas “The Revenant” is another horror film about a solider in Iraq who after being killed, suddenly arises and finds himself a bloodthirsty zombie. See what I mean? Not much going on this week! Time to catch up on the items you missed from the RedBox!!!
