More or less a carbon copy of the first movie in terms of style, subtlety, tone, and general goodwill, Red 2 stills ekes out a marginally better review than its passable predecessor.

This week brings out some heavy hitters at the video store including Life of Pi, The Master, Hitchcock, Smashed, Playing for Keeps, This Must be the Place, and A Late Quartet.
Enter for a chance to win one of five copies of the romantic comedy Playing for Keeps on Blu-Ray courtesy of Dork Shelf and VVS Films.
If the riveting old school styled thriller Side Effects truly manages to be the last film from acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh, he picked a hell of a film to go out on. It might not be the most ostentatious film in the director’s canon, but there haven’t been many thrillers this well constructed and efficient since the world lost Alfred Hitchcock.
Marred by a pretty lacking script, Broken City isn't so much awful as it is wholly predictable and almost instantly forgettable.
The romantic comedy Playing for Keeps has an excellent first 45 minutes mostly because it isn’t trying to be a standard rom-com. What starts off as a curiously winning mixture of a kids sport’s movie and a racy, adult sex farce, however, gives way somewhat suddenly to become something that’s merely okay and not at all surprising.
Dork Shelf sits down with Playing for Keeps leading man Gerard Butler to talk about working with kids, his great cast, his fading accent, and trying to make a film with soccer as a backdrop in the United States.
Although overstuffed, lazily plotted, and autotuned nearly into oblivion, the big screen adaptation of the jukebox musical Rock of Ages still has a real kind of shaggy dog charm evocative of the 1980s hair metal scene (minus, you know, any sort of crippling addictions, of course).
Wrapping up our look at the cinematic offerings for the month of June, we take a look at some real heavy hitters with Brave, Moonrise Kingdom, Prometheus, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Snow White and the Huntsman, Rock of Ages, and Piranha 3DD, which will undoubtedly win the box office crown for the month.
