Brad Pitt's "Fury" explodes into theatres

All these movies are perfect with popcorn, but what are you in the mood for? 
Lots of swearing, shooting, and blood; it's probably one of the best war movies I've ever seen. The graphic scenes were intense while the cinematography, music and sets worked perfectly to depict the atrocities of war. Pitt's performance was nothing less than stellar, but it was the Percy Jackson kid (Logan Lerman) who really nailed his part and impressed me. 
My Rating: 30/34

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Though it was another victim of one of those "the funniest parts are in the trailer" movie, it still was an enjoyable flick. It made several references to the classic kid's book and there's sure to be a scene that everyone in the family can relate to. I certainly wouldn't call it a big screen movie, but you can tell that the fun cast had a blast while filming.

My Rating: 25/34

The Judge
The acting was great in this dysfunctional family situation, but even with Robert Downey Jr's snark, I thought this movie was too long. Now that I've said that, it'll probably be nominated for a bunch of awards. Be prepared for a lot of Robert Downey breakdowns though - I've never seen him cry so much.
My Rating: 23/34
Reminded me of: August: Osage County, A Few Good Men
See you at the movies!
