A Dark Truth: A former CIA operative turned political talk show host is hired by a corporate whistle blower to expose her company’s cover-up of a massacre in a South American village.
Starring: Forest Whitaker, Eva Longoria, and Andy Garcia
Would I See It?: While it’s an interesting premise, it sounds like the actual film is a jumbled mess with a miscasted Longoria and an underutilized Whitaker and Garcia. At best, it’s something to check out on Netflix Instant Watch when you’ve exhausted everything else.

Texas Chainsaw 3D : A young woman travels to Texas to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-wielding killer is part of the reward.
Starring: Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, Trey Songz, and Scott Eastwood
Would I See It?: I do not understand the appeal of these mindless horror remakes/sequels. They all seem so manufactured and meaningless. I don’t think I would go see this even if I got free tickets. However, if you are a fan of the genre, it would probably make sense to see it in the theater as the 3D aspect seems to be the main purpose for the movie.
