Shake It Off.
It's not a good time for movies. Case in point? One of the biggest new movies this weekend was the 4,000th Peter Pan re-imagining — and a pretty terrible one, too.
To make things worse, one of the most buzzed-about movies on the horizon is just Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice with some obligatory zombies tossed in out of desperation.
Fortunately, Dallas has a lot more going for it in the way of entertainment than washed-up cinema. Check out all that we've found for you this week alone.
