Hot Tub Time Machine(MGM, $30)Jump into Hot Tub Time Machine and relive the 1980s, said the New York Daily News. Starring John Cusack and Craig Robinson, this comedy about a group of buddies who wind up back in 1986 will be a guilty pleasure if your “glory days involved spandex and hairspray.”
White Ribbon(Sony Classics, $29)Michael Haneke’s German-language drama “explores the insidious evil” in a small Protestant village as World War I approaches, said the Lincoln, Neb., Journal Star. Every stark shot of the black-and-white film is “hauntingly beautiful, a tense contrast to the ugliness on display.”
Airplane!(Paramount, $13)Airplane! “served up jokes so astoundingly corny that they somehow managed to circle around the bend and become hilarious,” said The New York Times. Released in 1980, the rollicking ride became the highest-grossing comedy and “remains one of the most influential.”
