Durango Stadium 9

(Next to Durango Mall, 247-9799)

The Dark Knight Rises. HHHSee description above.

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.HH (In standard and digital 3-D with surcharge) I’m not going to pretend like I know what happened in the first three. Surely there are those who do, and for them we present No. 4. Enjoy. Rated PG.

Savages.HHH½ Two laid-back So-Cal pot growers resist advances by a vicious Mexican cartel. That makes them much less laid-back. Rated R.

The Amazing Spider-Man. HHH½ I’m doing some research to see why this is different from the one they made just 10 years ago that already has sequels and a Broadway version ... and I’ve got nothing. Rated PG-13.

Madea’s Witness Prote ction. (No Ebert rating.) Yes, they made another one. I’m sure there are plenty of people who are happy about that, none more so than Tyler Perry. Rated PG-13.

Magic Mike. HHH Young male strippers need mentors, too, and Channing Tatum shows a young up-and-comer the ropes, based on events from his own life. Rated R.

Ted. HHH½ Mark Wahlberg’s wish for his childhood teddy bear to come to life comes true. But this is a Seth MacFarlane film, so Ted is not a well-behaved companion. Rated R.

Brave.HHH Pixar dreams up a female protagonist in the form of arrow-firing Princess Merida, who brings some sort of doom to the kingdom by being uppity and then has to fix things by being brave. Hence the title. Rated PG.
