This Week At The Reel Deal

Reel Deal Theater  

If you want to see an intense thriller with great acting by Owen Wilson and Pierce Brosnon, check out No Escape.

The reviews are mixed, it depends where you look but reviewers who immersed themselves in this film for pure entertainment and action loved it. Those worried about political correctness-not so much. It is big screen entertainment plain and simple.

I’ve been trying to open Love and Mercy for a while now and we finally got it for a one-week run. This film is a portrait of Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys. It is a journey through Wilson’s music career tangled with both brilliance and madness. The creation of songs in their studio and the film’s soundtrack make it a special, nostalgic film.

This Friday, we are opening Shaun the Sheep, Love and Mercy, and No Escape. The Man from UNCLE, Mission Impossible, and Paper Towns will end Thursday. The Gift will hold for another week. It’s a quiet thriller with a creepy twist.

A mix up with the Farmer, a caravan, and a very steep hill lead them all to the Big City and it’s up to Shaun and the flock to return everyone safely to the green grass of home.
