Poseidon Rex

Opens Friday, Apr 18, 2014 Synopsis: A team of deep-sea treasure hunters awaken a prehistoric predator that threatens to spread terror throughout the world's oceans in this action-packed creature feature. It all started when Jackson Slate (Brian Krause) led a diving expedition down the massive Great Blue Hole off the coast of Belize. Their goal was to unearth a long-lost Mayan treasure, but instead they stirred a creature that had been lying dormant for more than 60,000 years. Now that creature is about to strike back with a vengeance, and should the treasure hunters fail at stopping it, hundreds of more hatchings will follow, eventually making their way to dry land, and knocking mankind off the top of the food chain. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Brian Krause, Anne McDaniels, Steven Helmkamp Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review

Paths of Glory

Opens Friday, May 2, 2014 Synopsis: Adapting Humphrey Cobb's novel to the screen, director Stanley Kubrick and his collaborators Calder Willingham and Jim Thompson set out to make a devastating anti-war statement, and they succeeded above and beyond the call of duty. In the third year of World War I, the erudite but morally bankrupt French general Broulard (Adolphe Menjou) orders his troops to seize the heavily fortified "Ant Hill" from the Germans. General Mireau (George MacReady) knows that this action will be suicidal, but he will sacrfice his men to enhance his own reputation. Against his better judgment, Colonel Dax (Kirk Douglas) leads the charge, and the results are appalling. When, after witnessing the slaughter of their comrades, a handful of the French troops refuse to leave the trenches, Mireau very nearly orders the artillery to fire on his own men. Still smarting from the defeat, Mireau cannot admit to himself that the attack was a bad idea from the outset: he convinces himself that loss of Ant Hill was due to the cowardice of his men. Mireau demands that three soldiers be selected by lot to be executed as an example to rest of the troops. Acting as defense attorney, Colonel Dax pleads eloquently for the lives of the unfortunate three, but their fate is a done deal. Even an eleventh-hour piece of evidence proving Mireau's incompetence is ignored by the smirking Broulard, who is only interested in putting on a show of bravado. A failure when first released (it was banned outright in France for several years), Paths of Glory has since taken its place in the pantheon of classic war movies, its message growing only more pertinent and potent with each passing year (it was especially popular during the Vietnam era). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Cast: Kirk Douglas, Ralph Meeker, Adolphe Menjou, George Macready, Wayne Morris Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
