If it weren’t for the “art” titles, this is the sort of movie weekend that the pages of history teach us might be better spent in bed (or even under the bed). The good news is that there are more movies headed our way on July 1 — not that they look all that much more inspiring.
We only get two movies this week — one so mainstream that it hardly needs mentioning, and one art title you may have heard of, but I’m not betting on it. Before we get down to cases here, it’s worth noting that the summer has not been the world-beater that was expected.
It’s the week of the “official” beginning of the summer blockbuster season. That means you can expect to see the season’s first Next Big Thing all over the place, but that is not quite the only thing opening locally this week.
