No show this week (3/11)

BREAKING NEWS: No show this week, but it’s not our fault! It’s the studios’ fault. Of the four new movies opening Friday, three of them — Sony’s THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY, Focus’ THE YOUNG MESSIAH, and Lionsgate’s THE PERFECT MATCH — aren’t being screened for critics. The one that is screening (Paramount’s 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE), we’re going to miss because of SXSW travels. So we’ll return on March 18 with a SXSW wrap-up and (hopefully) a CLOVERFIELD review. We’re sorry — sorry the movies are apparently so bad that they don’t want anyone to see them. 🙁
