Where's it playing? Everywhere!
Oh, Hollywood, have you not learned from your past mistakes? Were Van Helsing and Red Riding Hood not disastrous enough? Apparently not because here comes yet another attempt to turn a fairy tale into a schlocky shoot-em-up action film. They must have given Jeremy Renner a lot of dough to follow the bread crumbs into these woods.

Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Elizabeth Banks, Hugh Jackman, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Gerard Butler, Kristen Bell, Anna Faris, Kate Winslet, Richard Gere, Uma Thurman, Seann William Scott, Chris Pratt, Justin Long, Patrick Warburton, Johnny Knoxville.
Where's it playing? Everywhere!
This anthology comedy film follows three young whippersnappers as they scour the depths of the Internet to discover the most offensive movie ever made. The interconnected shorts that tell this tale hail from 12 directors, including actress Elizabeth Banks, Peter Farrelly (There's Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber), Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman on Breaking Bad, half of the genius behind Mr. Show), James Gunn (Super) and more.

Parker.
Studio:
FilmDistrict.
Director: Taylor Hackford.
Writer: John J. McLaughlin.
Cast: Jason Statham, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Chiklis, Wendell Pierce, Nick Nolte.
Where's it playing? Everywhere!
Jason Statham is back to kick more ass in yet another action heist flick! This time, The Stath is a thief out for payback from his former crew after he's been double-crossed and left for dead. And who does he team up with? J. Lo! Because being a diva/actress/singer with your own fragrance line, clothing line and a 25-year-old boyfriend named after a friendly ghost makes you a regular Carmen Sandiego when it comes to disguises!

West of Memphis.
Studio:
Unknown.
Director: Amy Berg.
Writer: Amy Berg.
Cast: Damien Wayne Echols, Jason Baldwin, Jessie Miskelly.
Where's it playing? Only at the Angelika Dallas.
Like to the Paradise Lost trilogy of documentaries, West of Memphis explores the case and subsequent failure of the justice system against Damien Wayne Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Miskelly (known as the West Memphis Three), who were wrongly accused of the brutal murder of three boys in Arkansas during the early '90s. The case became infamous over the years as the trio sat in prison for 18 years, waiting to reclaim their innocence, which finally happened in 2011 with a little help from some famous friends in high places, including Johnny Depp, Eddie Vedder and Henry Rollins.

The Shining in 35mm.
Studio:
Warner Bros Pictures.
Director: Stanley Kubrick.
Writers: Stephen King (book); Stanley Kubrick and Diane Johnson (screenplay).
Cast: Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, Scatman Crothers.
Where's it playing? Only at the Texas Theatre, Friday through Sunday.
All work and no screening of The Shining at the Texas Theatre in 35MM this weekend makes Jack a dull boy!

Midnight at The Inwood presents The Room.
Studio:
Wiseau Films.
Director: Tommy Wiseau.
Writer: Tommy Wiseau.
Cast: Tommy Wiseau, Juliette Danielle, Greg Sestero.
Where's it playing? Only at The Inwood on Friday.
The Room, the greatest of worst movies, is back at The Inwood for you to throw plastic spoons at and toss the football around to (tuxedos required) while you shout “You're tearing me apart, Lisa!” at the screen. If you've never experienced this cinematic disaster-piece on the big screen (or at all), you owe it to yourself to rectify that this weekend. If not for yourself, then do it for Johnny.

Midnight at The Inwood presents Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Studio:
20th Century Fox.
Director: Jim Sharman.
Writer: Jim Sharman.
Cast: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick.
Where's it playing? Only at The Inwood on Saturday.
It's time to do the time warp again with Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Riff Raff and the delectable cast of the most iconic cult film of all time. But this ain't the regular Rocky Horror you're used to! As a special treat, a local shadow cast, Los Bastardos, will be performing the movie live on stage! Coming in costume is strongly encouraged.
