Eugene Weekly : Movies : 7.22.10




Jonah Hex: Josh Brolin and Megan Fox co-star in this comic-book adaptation about a “disfigured gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter.” With John Malkovich as the baddie. PG13. 84 min. Movies 12.

Killers: Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher play a newlywed couple whose perfect life gets complicated when Spencer (Kutcher) reveals that, oh, yeah, he’s actually a spy. How many more of these movies can we tolerate? Was it necessary to make Mr. and Mrs. Smith: The Knockoff? PG13. Movies 12.

Ramona and Beezus: Adapting Beverly Cleary’s iconic books about Ramona and her big sister Beezus, and filming them somewhere that’s not Cleary’s Portland neighborhood? How could they? G. Cinemark. VRC Stadium 15.

Runaways, The: Kristen Stewart is Joan Jett, Dakota Fanning is Cherie Currie, and reviews are mixed of this biopic about the ’70s teen rock queens behind “Cherry Bomb” — and their “Svengali-like” manager Kim Fowley (Michael Shannon, who was outstanding in Revolutionary Road). Directed by Flora Sigismondi. R. 109 min. David Minor Theater

Salt: Angelina Jolie is a badass again. What more could you need to know? She’s a sleeper spy! She has to prove she’s not trying to assassinate the president! The movie will surely have even more exclamation points than this small paragraph! PG13. 99 min. Cinemark. VRC Stadium 15.

Secret in Their Eyes, The: This year’s Academy-Award winner for Best Foreign Film is a story about a man writing a novel about a 1970s crime. Flashbacks return to the era of the crime — and the writer’s connection to the story, the judge who ruled on the case and the Argentine government of the era. “An attractive, messy drama,” said The New York Times. R. 127 min. Bijou. See review this issue.

Sugarland Express, The: Steven Spielberg’s first feature, from 1977, follows an outlaw couple trying to keep their family together. Screens as part of the DIVA/LCC Behind the Lens seminar, which this summer is focused on lesser-known films from well-known directors. 7 pm Tuesday, July 27, at DIVA. $3.
