Showtimes: 1, 4, 7:15 and 9:45 p.m. Friday through Thursday at Skyline Cinema in Dillon.A martial arts movie by David Mamet. It sounds like a jarring combination at first, as if the two just dont to go together until you learn that Mamet himself is a purple belt in Jiujitsu. Clearly, this is a subject thats dear to his heart. Then you realize while watching Redbelt that many tenets of the sport the ideas of control, manipulation and one-upmanship jibe perfectly with themes the playwright, director and screenwriter has explored for years in some of his best-known works such as the plays Glengarry Glen Ross and Speed-the-Plow. And so Redbelt makes sense in its own weird way: a mix of sports-flick cliches and Mamets patented rat-a-tat writing. Its Rocky, its The Karate Kid only with more stylized, rhythmic dialogue. Several Mamet regulars show up (Ricky Jay, Joe Mantegna, David Paymer and Mamets wife, Rebecca Pidgeon) which does put us in somewhat familiar territory. But its Chiwetel Ejiofor, the films star, who commands our attention. As the unflappably moral, placid Jiujitsu instructor Mike Terry, Ejiofor can be both attractive and warm, fierce and intimidating. A series of strangely intertwined events forces Mike into the ring, a place hes never wanted to be, to fight for $50,000. R for strong language. 99 min.

Showtimes: 1:15, 4:15, 7:15 and 9:45 p.m. Friday through Thursday at Skyline Cinema in Dillon.The whole point of a romantic comedy is the comfort of the ritual the familiarity of it all, as if youre wrapping yourself in a warm, snuggly blanket of knowledge that the two attractive, charming leads will surely end up with each other in the end. The outcome is never in doubt, despite the various contrived obstacles that pop up along the way. This is especially true of Made of Honor, because its pretty much a remake of a movie youve already seen: 1997s My Best Friends Wedding. The only difference is a reversal in gender roles so daring! This time, Patrick Dempsey plays the one who realizes hes in love with his best friend (Michelle Monaghan), and when she announces shes getting married, he tries to undermine the wedding from the inside. Because, you see, shes asked him to be her maid of honor. The title is a pun, get it? PG-13 for sexual content and language.
Showtimes: 12:45, 1:45, 3:45, 4:45, 6:45, 8 and 9:45 p.m. Friday through Thursday at Skyline Cinema in Dillon.Much of the allure here comes from the fact that we are indeed talking about a man a real man who has lived a life and made mistakes and experienced regret not some scrawny, teenage boy who received his superhero powers through a bite from a radioactive spider. No offense to Spidey, the Marvel Comics hero whos already provided billion-dollar summer blockbuster fodder. But theres just something more relatable about Tony Stark, even though hes a playboy industrialist of staggering wealth and arrogance. And in the hands of Robert Downey Jr., hes absolutely riveting. Downey may have seemed an unlikely casting choice at first, but its difficult to imagine any other actor in the role; hes so quick-witted and he makes such inspired decisions with dialogue that, at times, might have seemed corny otherwise. Throughout his eclectic career hes always been capable of both great charisma and vulnerability, and both are on display in this, the biggest movie of his life. Iron Man is also a blast the perfect start to the summer with its shiny mix of visual effects, elaborate set pieces and humor. This is also the biggest movie of director Jon Favreaus life, and he juggles all the complicated, expensive toys deftly. Downeys Tony is abducted by insurgents while demonstrating his weapons companys latest missile to the U.S. military in Afghanistan. While in captivity, hes ordered to reconstruct the missile but instead creates a suit of armor and becomes a weapon himself. 126 min.
