Scene Weekend Movie Guide: 9/6 -- Famine Season 

Starring: Vin Diesel, Karl Urban Screening: New Release, Wide Metacritic: 46/100 Rotten Tomatoes: 58% SceneTweet: "Punch-drunk Diesel thrives, raspy & begoggled, in unabashed genre flick. Nothing revolutionary, but better than precursors."
Starring: Naomi Watts, Robin Wright Screening: New, Limited Release (Shaker Square) Metacritic: 39/100 Rotten Tomatoes: 33% SceneTweet: "Comes off too much like a soap opera as couple of Aussie MILFs (Wright & Watts) hook up with hunky surfer dudes."
Starring: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon Screening: Saturday Midnight, Cedar Lee (25th Anniversary @ Cleveland Cinemas) Metacritic: 55/100 Rotten Tomatoes: 77% SceneTweet: "Semi-comprehensible cross-dressing cult camp. If it's your thing, cheerful and charming as all outdoors."
Starring: Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Christopher Lloyd Screening: Fri/Sat Midnight, Cedar Lee Metacritic: 36/100 Rotten Tomatoes: 62% SceneTweet: "About as one-dimensional as the board game, sadly. Chock-full of non-thrills and camp. Funny, sure, but mystery sacrificed for laughs."
Starring: Johnny Depp, Gary Farmer, John Hurt Screening: Thu/Fri, Cinematheque Metacritic: 58/100 Rotten Tomatoes: 71% SceneTweet: "Psychedelic Western is trademark Jarmusch; b&w; quirky, druggy, often rudderless plot, but totes hypnotic plus lovably jumpy Depp."
Starring: Michael Polley, Mark Polley Screening: Thu/Sun, Cinematheque Metacritic: 90/100 Rotten Tomatoes: 95% SceneTweet: "Can you say Critics' Darling? Warm & engrossing; poignant memoir as documentary; formal invention and compelling as hell."
Starring: Israel Broussard, Emma Watson, Katie Chang Screening: Sat/Sun, Cinematheque Metacritic: 66/100 Rotten Tomatoes: 60% SceneTweet: Ultra-vivid camera & breakout performance by Broussard, but troubling at core. It's montage porn to which fashionistas blithely masturbate."
3/7
Starring: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon Screening: Saturday Midnight, Cedar Lee (25th Anniversary @ Cleveland Cinemas) Metacritic: 55/100 Rotten Tomatoes: 77% SceneTweet: "Semi-comprehensible cross-dressing cult camp. If it's your thing, cheerful and charming as all outdoors."
