Weekend Movie Guide: Date Night?

Today on Giving Tuesday, LAist needs your support.
Today, your donation to LAist will be matched dollar for dollar. Your tax-deductible that gift powers our reporters and keeps us independent will be felt twice as strong today, so don't delay!

The presence of Tina Fey and Steve Carell gives me hope for Date Night, but the directorial hand of Shawn Levy really, REALLY worries me. I saw When You're Strange: A Film About the Doors at Sundance back in 2009 and, as a Doors fan, really dug all the previously unseen footage. Johnny Depp's newly recorded narration should improve an already solid film. The Australian The Square has been sitting on the shelf for awhile, but if comparisons to the Coen are valid, it should be fantastic.

Ready for an old-time horror film? Try out The Black Waters of Echo's Pond (LAist review here). Ready for a heartbreaking film about an awful marriage (hey, who isn't?). Try out Phyllis and Harold (LAist interview here). Strange to see such a strong cast being buried in a film like After.Life. See it now because it won't be around for long, folks. Ready for a film about Iranian women fighting crime on camels? Women Without Men isn't about that, but it still looks good.
