Guardians of the Galaxy 3-D

2014, USA/UK, 122 MINS, PG

Dir: James Gunn
Starring: Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, John C. Reilly

From Marvel, the studio that brought you the global blockbuster franchises of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers, comes a new team-the Guardians of the Galaxy. An action-packed, epic space adventure, Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" expands the Marvel Cinematic Universe into the cosmos, where brash adventurer Peter Quill finds himself the object of an unrelenting bounty hunt after stealing a mysterious orb coveted by Ronan, a powerful villain with ambitions that threaten the entire universe. To evade the ever-persistent Ronan, Quill is forced into an uneasy truce with a quartet of disparate misfits-Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon, Groot, a tree-like humanoid, the deadly and enigmatic Gamora and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer. But when Quill discovers the true power of the orb and the menace it poses to the cosmos, he must do his best to rally his ragtag rivals for a last, desperate stand-with the galaxy's fate in the balance. (C) Walt Disney

The Judge

2014, USA, 141 MINS, 14A

Dir: David Dobkin
Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Vera Farmiga, Robert Duvall, Billy Bob Thornton

As hotshot Chicago attorney Hank Palmer, Downey is his usual onscreen type — the whip-smart wiseass who's cynical and selfish...until he's not. When his mother dies, he returns to his rural Indiana hometown and is forced to stay and defend his estranged, holier-than-thou father (Robert Duvall), a respected local judge, after he's arrested for the hit-and-run murder of an ex-con he once put away. What makes the film more than just a dusty Grisham retread is that the case (as compelling as it is) is merely the backdrop for a more emotionally engaging story about fathers and sons played, like a duet, by two virtuoso actors who give the film not only all they have but probably more than it requires.

Mommy

2014, France/Canada, 139 MINS, 14A

Dir: Xavier Dolan

Anne Dorval plays Diane, a widow making ends meet with cleaning jobs: she is feisty, lippy, sexy and dresses like a teenager. The cross she has to bear is her teenage son Steve, who has ADHD and is aggressively unstable with boundary issues, and an inability to stop swearing, fighting and touching women. Yet when calm, he is intelligent and sweet-natured.

Steve has just been discharged from a care facility and now Diane must care for him at home – and this is a chaotic and horribly hilarious nightmare. Antoine Olivier Pilon's performance as Steve is tremendous: he is entirely, hilariously out of control. Peter Bradshaw/The Guardian

The Hundred-Foot Journey

2014, USA/United Arab Emirates/India, 119 MINS, PG

Dir: Lasse Hallström
Starring: Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal

A widowed Indian restaurateur (Om Puri), burned out of his Mumbai restaurant by political fanatics, moves to Europe with his five kids to begin again. After false starts in London and Rotterdam, their van breaks down in an old French town.

They find a closed restaurant ideal for their purposes. By bad luck, it’s across the street from an establishment run by Madame Mallory (Helen Mirren), who’s obsessed with doubling her one-star rating in the famed Michelin guide. To her mind, hot curries and haute cuisine cannot coexist.

Romance blossoms when one child in the Kadam family, elder brother Hassan (Manish Dayal), displays tremendous talent. He wins over a sous-chef from the French staff (Charlotte Le Bon) and convinces Mallory he could be a genius. But if so, will the wide world snatch him away?  Charlotte Observer, Lawrence Toppman.

Fury

2014, USA/UK/China, 134 MINS, 14A

Dir: David Ayer
Starring: Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Pena

A jolting, close-in combat movie that follows a Sherman tank crew through Germany in the final, bloody months of World War II, it stars Brad Pitt, scars on his face, nostrils wide to inhale the battlefield stench, as Don "Wardaddy" Collier, this Fury's sergeant. The men hunkered down in the bowels of his rolling armored machine are Boyd Swan (Shia LaBeouf), the Bible-quoting gunner; Trini Garcia (Michael Peña), the driver; Grady Travis (Jon Bernthal), a madman and the loader of the 76mm gun, and the newbie Norman (Logan Lerman), an Army typist shunted to the front lines in the Allies' desperate lurch toward victory. - Steven Rea/Philadelphia Inquirer

The Trip to Italy

2014, UK, 108 MINS, 14A

Dir: Michael Winterbottom
Starring: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Rosie Fellner

George and Gracie. Abbot and Costello. Hope and Crosby. It might be a bit premature to add Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon to the list of great comedic duos, but a few more films like "The Trip" and "The Trip to Italy" would seal the deal.

In 2010's "The Trip," the pair, playing versions of themselves, were hired to travel around Yorkshire, sampling and reviewing a half-dozen restaurants. Now, as the title implies, they've taken their act to The Continent, zipping around in a Mini Cooper from Piemonte to the Amalfi coast for more of the same. If that makes "The Trip to Italy" seem like a redundant sequel, it shouldn't — it's as funny, and at times as poignant — as its predecessor.

In both films, the scenery and the food are delectable, but the real attraction is the banter and rapport between these quick-witted wiseacres, both skilled impressionists and character actors. Coogan is by far better known in America, thanks most recently to his performance in last year's "Philomena," for which he also received an Oscar nomination as its screenwriter. But both actors (or at least their characters) use snappy patter and sarcasm to deflect their anxiety about never rising to the status of a leading man. They also use jokes to steer around any serious acknowledgment of their fraternal feelings for each other, in a fairly spot-on depiction of male friendship. PORTLAND OREGONIAN, Marc Mohan
