This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Aug. 17-19, 2012)

Published on: August 18, 2012

Because of embargoes (those happy little restrictions on when critics can post reviews, good or bad), a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

2012 Films Not Yet In Theaters

Chicken with Plums

Jason Bailey @ DVD Talk

  • Excerpt: ‘Chicken with Plums’ is a picture that sneaks up on you; you’re so busy marveling at the exuberant style that you may not notice how swoony and enchanting this charming little movie has become.

[New Today]

Livid

Jennie Kermode @ Eye For Film

  • Excerpt: A remote, crumbling mansion. A fragile old woman in a coma. Three intrepid burglars. All Hallows’ Eve. Livid has all the ingredients of classic (not to mention cheesy) horror. What it does with them is, ultimately, something unexpected.
