Indy IV is here (actually, it opened last night).  " Though the film stars a relaxed and capable Harrison Ford as everyone's favorite intrepid archaeologist and boasts supporting players ranging from Cate Blanchett as a superb villainess to Shia LaBeouf as the inevitable youngster, the real heroes of this film are director Steven Spielberg and the veritable army of superb technicians who turn the film's numerous stunts and special effects into trains that insist on running on time," writes Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times. 

"The Visitor" starring Richard Jenkins arrives at Market Street Cinema.  "The Visitor is precisely the sort of film Hollywood has abandoned, a literate and low-key character study of an ordinary man in depressingly average straits. It honors measured gestures and suggests that small acts of kindness can be heroic and life-changing," notes Philip Martin of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette. 

"Young @ Heart" is also here.  Enjoy the long weekend.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
