2016: OBAMA'S AMERICA – This promises to demystify the president but does more to illuminate its filmmaker and his ego. PG for adult themes. 89 mins.
THE APPARITION – A "Paranormal Activity" knockoff with effects as generic as the cookie-cutter mission revival in which it's set. PG-13 for terror/images and sensuality. 82 mins.
THE BOURNE LEGACY — This fourth film in the franchise is really about drug addiction and the lengths to which a junkie will go for his fix. PG-13 for violence and action. 135 mins.
