Final Destination 5

‘Final Destination 5’ has plenty of blood and nearly no brains. But as long as you know that …


Horror

Rod Lott
Last summer, the fourth “Final Destination” movie swapped a numeral for a definitive article, because producers figured the franchise had run its course. Then “The Final Destination” made $181 million worldwide, so this summer, we have another chapter, and the numbering system has been reinstated.

'The Guard'

With red moons, black lads and blue language, lucky charms abound in the Irish comedy ‘The Guard.’


Rod Lott
With the success of “Bad Santa” and “Bad Teacher,” the time has come for “Bad Cop.”

Beautiful Darling

This Candy sours


Documentary

Rod Lott
Candy Darling would’ve loved “Beautiful Darling,” the documentary of her brief 29 years alive, because, as one of the persons interviewed reveals, the thing that mattered most to her in life was being considered gorgeous enough to grace the silver screen.

Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark

Don’t pass up the original.


Horror

Rod Lott
In general, I prefer the films of Guillermo del Toro that he doesn’t direct (“The Orphanage,” “Splice”) to the ones he does (particularly “Hellboy” and its sequel). That holds true for “Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark,” which he only co-wrote and co-produced, ceding the director’s chair to newcomer Troy Nixey.

‘Rum’ punchless

A tame Johnny Depp and disheveled script leave ‘The Rum Diary’ with a nasty hangover.


Drama

Matt Carney
Written by Hunter S. Thompson at 24, but unpublished until his early 60s, “The Rum Diary” was a fictionalized account of his besotted time in Puerto Rico, what in reality was a nine-month stint between gigs as a New York City journalist.

Martha Marcy May Marlene

Desire for community leads to the dark side of humanity in ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene,’ a chilling film by any name.


Thriller

Kathryn Jenson White
Community ranks as key on the list of basic human needs. After water, food and shelter, our need to connect with others drives and defines us.
