‘Immortals,’ R. We can get a taste of what eternity feels like by sitting through ‘Immortals,’ a none note story with weak plot about classical Greece, accentuated by hackneyed writing and ludicrous costumes. Henry Cavill, as Perseus, and Mickey Rourke, as evil King Hyperion, star for director Tarsem Singh, whose films are usually much better than this. One star rating.
‘Jack and Jill,’ PG. Adam Sandler pulls double duty in this comedy about an advertising executive (Sandler) who dreads an annual event: A Thanksgiving visit by his twin sister (also Sandler). And Sandler is twice as annoying in this one, too, riffing and ad-libbing far longer than he should. Al Pacino, on the other hand is fun to ditch. Dennis Dugan directs. One star rating.
‘J. Edgar,’ R. Director Clint Eastwood relates the story of former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, whose nearly 50-year reign as the head of the bureau turned him into an all powerful purveyor of surveillance, harassment, political manipulation and deception. Leonard Di Caprio does an admirable job portraying Hoover through the decades. Three star rating.
