1. “Warrior” –– The definition of more than meets the eye, “Warrior” is that movie you
overlooked last year because it looked like more of the same. Check this one out for its
gripping story, first-rate acting and compelling character development. (DVD)

2. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” –– The second extremely successful series reboot last
summer (after “X-Men: First Class”) highlighted some stellar work by incredibly talented
motion capture actor Andy Serkis. Hopefully “The Amazing Spider-Man” reboot follows
suit this summer. (DVD)

3. “Martha Marcy May Marlene” –– Disregard the strange name. This movie is a solid
psychological thriller with an amazing performance from newcomer Elizabeth Olsen,
sister of Mary Kate and Ashley. (DVD)

4. FoCoMX –– Okay, this isn’t a movie. But, it’s going on at the Lyric Cinema Café movie
theater and promises to provide a good time for anyone looking to listen to some local
music this weekend. (Lyric Cinema Café)

5. “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” –– For those looking for some serious depth, check out this spy
mystery starring veteran Gary Oldman. But be sure to bring a notepad and follow along,
it can get confusing at times. (DVD)
