BRIEF: Weekend Movie Selections

June 27, 2014

By Steven Rea, The Philadelphia Inquirer



June 28--Transformers: Age of Extinction. Director Michael Bay outdoes himself in this latest pulverizing chapter of his robot franchise, this one in 3-D. It's much longer and much louder than any of the previous three demolition extravaganzas. Mark Wahlberg provides the puny human element. PG-13

Lucky Them. Toni Collette gives a thoroughly enchanting performance as Ellie Klug, a snarky, yet endearing music journalist in this charming rock-and-roll dramedy that's light on story but strong on character. Sparks fly when Ellie goes on a road trip with a dot.com millionaire-turned-filmmaker in search of a legendary rock star -- her ex-lover -- who disappeared 10 years earlier. R

The Discoverers. Griffin Dunne stars as a recently separated father who leads his dysfunctional family across the country on a reenactment of the Lewis and Clark trek. They find not only the Pacific in this comedy, but each other. No MPAA rating

Steven Rea's selections do not appear this week.
