Can we call a truce on post-credit “stingers,” those scenes that give a little easter egg or at least a half-hearted punchline to viewers who keep their butts in the seats during that interminable six- or seven-minute cascade of names?
It’s going to be a good weekend at Landmark Theaters for movie-goers who specifically seek out movies that tie into current events. Here is a list of some of the other limited release screenings you’ll want to check out this week.
“The Conjuring” is the sort of horror movie that gets in your head. But it’s not the sort of horror movie that stays in your head. And if there’s an interesting twist to “Turbo,” it’s that the story’s humans have a level of rationale lower than most box turtles.
Some of you saw “Pacific Rim” last weekend. More of you saw “Grown Ups 2.” Only one of those two groups chose wisely, but odds are pretty good that neither group caught the best limited screenings around town.
You want a single-volume psychotronic encyclopedia of everything that people who love summer movies love about summer movies? It’s all there in the deliriously entertaining “Pacific Rim.”
To my eyes, some of the biggest bombs of all time were actually not that bad, or were at least interesting enough to endure as tortured anti-classics, rather than get cast off into the dustbin of history’s forgotten mid-size hits.
Let’s be honest. Summer just ain’t bringing it this summer. If you really want to get the most out of your cinema experience, the odds seem to greatly favor skipping out on the mainstream stuff altogether.

It’s Twin Cities Pride this weekend, and I imagine watching movies is the last thing on the minds of many within the Cities’ GLBT community. But, hey, that’s no reason not to add a few titles to your Netflix queue in anticipation of the comedown.
It’s Pride Week in the Twin Cities, and LGBT themes pop up in at least a few of the next seven days’ worth of recommended screenings. Here are your best bets for the week.
We’re rapidly approaching the summer solstice. I’d like to hope that means there will be a lot of outdoor patio cocktails with people fanning themselves to beat the heat, but let’s be honest. This year is no normal year.
Man of Steel tries to transpose the psychological profile of its target audience onto a figure who is by definition supposed to be superior to them.

Though I found myself struggling to come up with a shortlist of candidates as compelling as the collection that formed the distaff side, the horror genre alone ensured that there would be no shortage of contenders.
