HUGO—If you scoffed when you heard Martin Scorsese was making a family-friendly 3D movie, please sit down with a big plate of crow and enjoy this film. Save the date: Hugo editor Thelma Schoonmaker will be at Scarecrow on Wednesday, March 7.     BLU   @   SALE


MANDRILL—For more on this Chilean action film, we refer you to badass-film expert Outlaw VernBLU  @


THE CATECHISM CATACLYSM—Todd Rohal’s (The Guatemalan Handshake) comedy starring Steve Little (Stevie Janowski in Eastbound & Down). Among the locals filmmakers on hand for this film are producers Megan Griffiths (The Off Hours) and Lacey Leavitt (Blood on the Flat Track), cinematographer Ben Kasulke, and a cameo by Lynn Shelton.  @


JOHNNY ENGLISH REBORN—After watching years of Black Adder marathons, I am programmed to have nothing but unconditional love for Rowan Atkinson.


I MELT WITH YOU—Four longtime friends—Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, Christian McKay, and Rob Lowe—implode in a haze of drugs and alcohol.


JUSTICE LEAGUE: DOOM—It's the Justice League vs. the Legion of DOOM! No offense to Ryan Reynolds, but Nathan Fillion does a fine job as the voice of Green Lantern. I’d like to see that in live action.  Also, Bane does some pretty messed-up things in this film. BLU  @
