The first week of February is the last of the post-Christmas lull that comes every year.  We’re a week from The Wolfman and big budget pictures like Alice in Wonderland and Clash of the Titans are only a month away.  This week though, you may want to stick to the limited releases.

Dear John

A director like Lasse Hallstrom (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Cider House Rules) should really be able to do better than this.  Dear John is the story of a soldier who meets a girl on leave, and the long distance relationship that follows.  It start Channing Tatum, who you saw in G.I. Joe last summer if you were unfortunate, and Amanda Seyfried, who despite her role in the successful and acclaimed television series Big Love doesn’t seem to fare to well in film.

From Paris with Love

Think back to 1994.  Luc Besson had just made The Professional, and John Travolta got a new lease on acting thanks to Pulp fiction.  But now, sixteen years later, they’ve combined their efforts to create From Paris with Love, thoroughly generic buddy action movie that takes itself a bit too seriously.

District 13: Ultimatum (Limited)

If you didn’t see District B-13 you missed out on some serious post-apocalyptic parkour action.  Luckily for you, the sequel’s coming to limited theaters this week.  The plot won’t blow you away, and the story mainly exists to space out the action scenes, but in Disctrict 13: Ultimatum, that’s a good thing.  The fight and chase scenes are what make the movie great.
