The first weekend of 2013 kicked off with two sequels - one great and the other, um, not so much.
Michael Apted's "56 Up" is another poignant entry in the director's long-standing documentary series focusing on the lives of 14 British denizens who have been filmed every seven years since age 7.
I can't say I was as enthused about "Texas Chainsaw 3D," the latest unnecessary sequel to Tobe Hooper's 1974 classic horror film. This latest wins a few minor points for sheer chutzpah - you'll see what I mean, that is, should you take the drastic measure of actually watching the damn thing. Otherwise, it's merely another mean-spirited entry into a series that has long outlived its shelf life.
Here are my reviews.
This coming weekend, I'll catch "Gangster Squad" and "Struck by Lightning."
