This Week at the Reel Deal

Column By JIM O’DONNELL
Reel Deal Theater                  

This week we are opening The Grand Budapest Hotel, Rio 2 and Need for Speed. We will hold Captain America for another week. Noah, Muppets Most Wanted, and Divergent end this Thursday.

After dozens of requests we finally got a print of The Grand Budapest Hotel after weeks of haggling. This comedy/drama is getting reviews in the 90 percent plus range. It doesn’t get much better than that.

Also on our short list, we plan to show 50-1, and Particle Fever due to the many requests from our  patrons. Both of these small studios have not returned our call but being of the tenacious sort, we hope to prevail.

The Grand Budapest Hotelrecounts the adventures of Gustave H, a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune ─ all against the backdrop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

It’s a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids in Rio 2, after they’re hurtled from that magical city to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets the most fearsome adversary of all – his father-in-law. All our favorite Riocharacters are back, and they’re joined by Oscar nominee Andy Garcia, Grammy winner Bruno Mars, Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth and Oscar/Emmy/Tony winner Rita Moreno. Rio 2also features new Brazilian artists and original music by Janelle Monae and Wonderland. (c) Fox

Need for Speed taps into what makes the American myth of the open road so enticing. The story chronicles a near-impossible cross-country race against time-one that begins as a mission for revenge, but proves to be one of redemption. In a last attempt to save his struggling garage, blue-collar mechanic Tobey Marshall (Aaron Paul), who with his team skillfully builds and races muscle cars on the side, reluctantly partners with wealthy, arrogant ex-NASCAR driver Dino Brewster (Dominic Cooper). Just as a major sale to car broker Julia Bonet (Imogen Poots) looks like it will save the business, a disastrous, unsanctioned race results in Dino framing Tobey for manslaughter. (c) Disney

Coming attractions include: Transcendence, The Other Women, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Legends of OZ: Dorothy’s Return, Bears,  X-men: Days of Future Past, and Maleficent.
