The Fourth of July is a huge moviegoing day. Christmas is so big, New Year’s is left open to give everyone time to catch up. But Labor Day? Nothing. Zilch. It’s as though Hollywood wants you to — gasp! — go outside this weekend.
There’s not much in “The November Man” that you haven’t seen before, usually done better somewhere else. Compared to the franchises it seems to be striving for, as Bond it’s bland, and as Bourne it’s a bore.
As part of its customer appreciation night, the West Wind Drive-In is offering free admission on Thursday to see “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Maleficent,” “How to Train Your Dragon 2” and “Think Like a Man Too.”
The big question at the heart of the movie is a big no-brainer. But high school senior Mia Hall (Chloe Grace Moretz), comatose and clinging to life, is torn by the choice in “If I Stay.”
“The Giver” takes place in a world without memories. If only audiences could enter that realm for 97 minutes so that the movie wouldn’t feel so very familiar in the wake of other young adult adaptations ranging from “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent” to “Ender’s Game” and next month’s “The Maze Runner.”
Three of the actor’s four Oscar-nominated performances, as well as his “Happy Days” introduction as Mork, can be found on TV starting Friday.
Matt Iseman is in his fifth season of providing commentary for a “American Ninja Warrior” that’s yet to crown a winner. He thinks this finally may be the year.
Here’s a look at this week’s new movies, “The Giver,” “The Expendables 3,” “Magic in the Moonlight” and “What If” (“Let’s Be Cops” opened Wednesday):

Starting at 5 p.m. every Sunday through Oct. 5, AMC will air eight straight hours of the Emmy-winning drama, in order, from the beginning.
You buy a ticket for a movie like “Into the Storm” — aka, “Twister 2: Let’s Twist Again, Like We Did in the Summer of ’96” — for the tornadoes. And they, at least, do not disappoint.
Here’s a look at this week’s new movies, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Into the Storm,” “Step Up All In,” “The Hundred-Foot Journey,” “Boyhood,” “Deepsea Challenge 3D” and “I Origins”:
I took 164 minutes out of a recent vacation and dropped $32.54 to see “Boyhood.” It was worth every second. And every penny.
After each episode of the new body-painting competition series produced and judged by Las Vegan Robin Slonina, you can log on to YouTube to see “Skin Wars: The Naked Truth with Kandee Johnson.”
Each week on “Skin Wars” (9 p.m. Wednesday, GSN), one contestant will see all of his hard work go down the drain. Literally.
The trailer for “Guardians of the Galaxy” debuted in February, and its peculiar tone, coupled with its liberal use of Blue Swede’s “Hooked on a Feeling,” made it the one summer blockbuster I was verifiably tingly to see.
An ordinary young woman is given extraordinary powers when she ingests too much of a designer drug. It sounds like something Stan Lee and John Belushi might have concocted. Unfortunately, the reality is twice as nutty and roughly half as entertaining.
“Sharknado 2: The Second One” (9 p.m. Wednesday, Syfy) really is that much better in a bad way (or that much worse in a good way, depending on your perspective) than the original.
Here’s a look at this week’s new movies, “Hercules,” “Lucy,” “And So It Goes,” “A Most Wanted Man,” “Wish I Was Here,” “The Fluffy Movie” and “Le Chef”:

Who brings an 8-year-old to see a movie called “Sex Tape”? What, did the guy working the door at The Spearmint Rhino not accept the little fella’s fake ID?
During the annual 12-hour nightmare known as The Purge, virtually every crime known to man is legal.
Here’s a look at this week’s new movies, “Sex Tape,” “Planes: Fire and Rescue,” “The Purge Anarchy” and “Persecuted”:
The History channel series set at Count’s Kustoms is back with a batch of new episodes.
