A rundown of what to find in theaters this week
“The Belko Experiment”
James Gunn (“Guardians of the Galaxy”) scripted this workplace tale where co-workers are pitted against each other in a life or death social experiment.
A Midwestern farm girl finds herself in a world that blends fantasy and reality when she discovers a mysterious stranger apparently being held captive in a farm silo.
“The Boondock Saints”
This tale of revenge-seeking Irish brothers has attained cult status, and even if I'm not a part of it, fans should know this is playing Friday through Sunday at the Gateway Film Center as part of their ongoing Cult 101 series.
Hugh Jackman's reported last performance as Logan/Wolverine is the movie fans have longed for. It's both brutal and moving, and hopefully a direction other superhero movies will follow. (4 stars)
Whether you go for the bitingly sharp commentary on race or just for a really, really well-executed horror movie, go see “Get Out.” (4 stars)
Oscar night's wild snafu grabbed the headlines, but you should see for yourself why Barry Jenkins' unforgettable coming-of-age film deserved Best Picture all along. (5 stars)
Also in theaters:
“Kong: Skull Island”
A great cast helps smooth over some of the weak parts in what's a generally enjoyable monster movie with plenty of popcorn thrills. (3 stars)
This 80-minute documentary focuses on the hundreds of thousands of cats that freely roam Istanbul, as well as the culture around them. (Drexel Theatre, Gateway Film Center)
