SEPTIC MAN | © 2014 Starz Digital Media

Rating: R Stars: Jason David Brown, Molly Dunsworth, Robert Maillet, Tim Burd, Julian Richings, Stephen McHattie Writer: Tony Burgess Director: Jesse Thomas Cook Distributor: Starz Digital Media Release Date: August 15, 2014 Not for the faint of heart, or the weak of stomach, SEPTIC MAN combines the horrors of serial killers, claustrophobia and psychological damage with a hefty continuing dose of physical filth.

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY | © 2014 Walt Disney Pictures/Marvel

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan Writers: James Gunn and Nicole Perlman, based on the comic books by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning Director: James Gunn Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures/Marvel Release Date: August 1, 2014 For a while, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY teeters on an edge.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chadwick Boseman, Nelsan Ellis, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Dan Aykroyd Writers: Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth, story by Steven Baigelman and Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth Director: Tate Taylor Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: August 1, 2014 The late soul singer/entertainer James Brown was known as “the hardest-working man in show business” and the biographical drama with music GET ON UP shows us why in detail. It is also consistently entertaining and intermittently moving, but by the end, we realize that it hasn’t been all that illuminating.
