Marks madness

Scott Marks covers the movie front for this week's new releases, including Wildling and Tully

Wildling: When Brad Dourif is your movie dad, it's hard to imagine things going particularly well

For a while there, Ye Olde new release schedule seemed to be waving a blank white flag of surrender: "Oh, Avengers: Infinity War, we know better than to try to compete with your awesome earning power, even on your second weekend." Yes, Little Pink House would get a release at The Ken, because it seemed fitting to offer a true story of the Little Guy (or Gal, in this case) going up against the System. But then came word that Tully would get a wide release in the way of counterprogramming. A little Diablo Cody stylized realism — a family dealing with the arrival of a third kid — to bump up against superheroes dealing with the fate of the universe.

Scott Marks saw 'em both, but he didn't get excited until he dug a little deeper and found Wildling and Claire's Camera at the Digital Gym. (Lesson: there's lots of movies out there if you're willing to look!)

Finally, the long-delayed Back to Burgundy decided to make today the day. Whaddya know, Scott saw that one too.

If Scott releases his movie reviews on the 15th, should we beware the Ides of Marks? ;-)
