‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’
Bilbo Baggins continues his journey with the wizard Gandalf and 13 dwarves. There’s not a single shot, line of dialogue or special effect that doesn’t show signs of director Peter Jackson’s unbridled style of filmmaking.
‘August: Osage County’
An emotionally brutal look at one of the most dysfunctional families on film in years. It is a powerful and engaging story that shows the flaws that make families so interesting. Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts star.
The boxing-movie genre gets pounded in this film starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro, stars of some of the biggest boxing movies ever made. The movie drifts between comedy and drama.
Also out this week

“Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones”: Spinoff of the “Paranormal” films.
