Movie previews 1/24

I’m off tomorrow because I’m working Sunday. So I could — but probably won’t — attend one of the three new movies opening this weekend.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters means that Jack & Jill are about the only nursery rhyme characters that haven’t gotten a movie of their own. Out of solidarity with my namesake hill-climber, I’m boycotting this one.

Movie 43 follows three kids searching to find the most banned movie in the world. I doubt it’s this one. But it has Emma Stone, which is a plus. Probably the only plus.

Parker stars Jason Statham, a big plus, and Jennifer Lopez, a moderate minus. It’s the story of a thief who lives by his own code of honor. Don’t they all?
