Aqua Teen Hunder Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters

The creators of the television comedy use the big screen to reveal the secret origins of characters Meatwad, Frylock and Master Shake. Rated R for crude and sexual humor, violent images and language. – Bill White

The Host

A horror thriller, a political satire, a dysfunctional family comedy (think “Little Miss Sashimi”) and a touching melodrama, Bong Joon-ho’s “The Host” is also one helluva monster movie.  The creature is the most hideously beautiful movie monster since H.R. Giger’s “Alien,” and the movie is wild, crazy, messy, preposterous — and all the better for it. Rated R HHH1/2 –Jim Emerson

Pathfinder: Legend of the Ghost Warrier

It’s not often you see a film’s rating being used as one of the main marketing thrusts of a new release.  But there it is, the reason for “The Pathfinder’s” R-rating being trumpeted as much as the big, strong sword-yielding Vikings attempting to conquer North America.  They also happen to look a lot like the Spartans in “300.”  Ah ha.  Now I get it. Rated R for strong brutal violence throughout. – BW


 Auto/action film starring Eddie Griffin and featuring the personal exotic car collection of millionaire and producer Daniel Sadek, whose very rare Ferrari was crashed and totaled by Griffin.  Classic.  Not the movie, the irony. Rated PG-13 for violence, sex, language and drugs. – BW

Slow Burn

A district attorney (Ray Liotta) with an eye on the mayor’s chair is caught between his beautiful assistant (Jolene Blalock) accused of murder, and a gang leader (LL Cool J). Rated R for sex, language and violence – BW
