NEW RELEASES THIS WEEK

Brüno

British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen unleashes his gay fashionista character, on a now suspecting world. Some funny moments and absurd exchanges, but the thrill and much of the comedy, is gone.

The Hurt Locker

Director Kathryn Bigelow’s impressively realistic portrait of a bomb disposal squad in Baghdad blows every other Iraq war movie off the screen.

I Hate Valentine’s Day

A Brooklyn florist thinks that she has a foolproof dating system in this mostly mediocre romantic comedy with underwritten characters and carelessly handled subplots.

I Love You, Beth Cooper

A high school nerd uses his valedictory speech to tell his classmates what he thinks of them, including stating his love for a fellow student, in this emphatically unfunny comedy.

Blood: The Last Vampire

This live-action take on a popular Japanese anime film could have been a lot of fun, but with 99-cent-store special effects, the charms wear off quickly.
