Will our oh-so-smart moviegoers find “Dumb and Dumber To” dim in light of last week’s intelligent, “Interstellar” entertainment? Might the “Big Hero 6” become an even bigger star in the face of such ineptness? The wise but fading “Nightcrawler” is in danger of crawling to an even lower rung on the box-office ladder, igniting the “Fury” of its fans while sending our latest war hero to an even lower, more dangerous movie location. Although “St Vincent” has enjoyed his 15 minutes of fame, will he be kind enough to step aside for his less saintly competition? As time passes, our “Gone Girl” will surely find herself out of the limelight, as new creative recruits arrive to take her mysterious place, maybe in the form of the “Foxcatcher, whose mind is clearly gone.” Might his “unique brand” catch on with clever viewers? Exactly what is waiting for the eager moviegoer “Beyond the Lights?” Perhaps we should follow that cinematic illumination before resorting to the “Ouija” board, which is close to being packed away and prepared for its DVD release.
From the depths of the mysterious outer space to that long, lonely ride into the movie sunset, our stars, no matter their intellectual status, continue to shine, lighting the way to the nearest movie theater.
What star will provide the cleverest entertainment this weekend?
