Opening This Week:

CLASH OF THE TITANS—Computer effects take the place of the Ray Harryhausen stop-motion animation in this remake of the 1981 fantasy loosely based on Greek mythology. Starring Sam Worthington, Liam Neeson, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Flemyng, Gemma Arterton and Elizabeth McGovern. Directed by Louis Leterrier (Transporter 2). Reviewed this issue. Flix, Maple Ridge, Market Arcade, McKinley, Regal Elmwood, Regal Niagara Falls, Regal Transit, Regal Walden Galleria, Sunset Drive-In, Transit Drive-In

TERRIBLY HAPPY—A troubled cop reassigned to a small town finds that the locals have their own way of doing things in this neo-noir thriller from Denmark. Starring Jakob Cedergren, Lene Maria Christensen and Kim Bodnia. Directed by Henrik Ruben Genz. Reviewed this issue. Eastern Hills

WHY DID I GET MARRIED TOO—I know the title doesn’t make any sense, but it’s a Tyler Perry movie. Janet Jackson, Jill Scott, Sharon Leal, Louis Gossett Jr., and Cicely Tyson co-star in this sequel. Flix, Maple Ridge, Market Arcade, Regal Elmwood, Regal Niagara Falls, Regal Quaker, Regal Transit, Regal Walden Galleria


CHARADE (1964)—As slick and sophisticated as you’d expect from a movie starring Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant. Hepburn’s recently deceased husband swindled a lot of money out of some men who want it back; Grant offers to help keep them off her tail, but is he after the loot too? A supporting cast including Walter Matthau, James Coburn and Ned Glass only makes it even more watchable. Fri-Sat 8 pm. The Screening Room, Northtown Plaza in Century Mall, 3131 Sheridan Drive, Amherst (837-0376)

DAS BOOT (West Germany, 1981)—A masterpiece of claustrophobic tension, set on a German submarine stationed in the Atlantic during World War II. This two and one-half hour feature was cut down from a six-hour miniseries, but the cutting was done with great care, so that what remains is not only dramatically intact but tight as a drum. Directed by Wolfgang Petersen (In the Line of Fire). Presented as part of the Buffalo Film Seminar. Tues 7 pm, Market Arcade Film and Arts Center, 639 Main St. (855-3022).
