A pair of movies hit the theaters this week.  Both promise a new and interesting take on an old story, and both feature acclaimed directors working with their favorite actors.  The combination of experience and creativity should make this weekend an exciting one for movie lovers.

Alice in Wonderland

It’s hard not to be intrigued at least by Tim Burton’s newest film.  It stars the usual cast of characters – Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter – as well as a few new faces to Burton films.  The movie has generated a lot of praise for its impressive visuals and strange take on reality, but many critics cite a surprisingly dull third act.  

Brooklyn’s Finest

Antoine Fuqua is best known for his directorial efforts on Training Day.  In Brookyn’s Finest he again works with Wesley Snipes and Ethan Hawke in hopes of recapturing some of that magic.  The film falls short though, thanks to a less than impressive script and a surprising lack of directorial maturity.  The actors still shine through, with Richard Gere in particular being called out for his work.

Also opening this week:

Harlan: In the Shadow of Jew Suss (Limited)
Harlem Aria (Limited)
Iron Cross (Limited)
