This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Feb. 1-3, 2013)

Published on: February 2, 2013

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.

Piers Marchant @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

  • Excerpt: The Simpsons can still pull out the laughs; Disney has got their schmaltz going; but I’ll take ‘Adam & Dog’ any day.

The 85th Annual Oscars: Nominated Live-Action Shorts

Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews

MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com

  • Excerpt: My favorite of the lot is the French-Belgian “Death of a Shadow,” a steampunkish science fantasy…

Matthew Lucas @ From the Front Row
Piers Marchant @ Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

  • Excerpt: Five worthy possibilities (well, okay, more like four) but only one made me so sad I had to sit in a dark room for 10 minutes after seeing it.
