THE SE­CRET IN THEIR EYES Juan José Cam­panella’s film (Academy Award win­ner for Best For­eign Lan­guage Film of 2009) is the story of two men emo­tion­ally tied to­gether by a dead woman. It’s the tale of a re­tired cop (Ri­cardo Darín) and his ef­forts to rec­on­cile love and jus­tice as he re-ex­am­ines a 25-year-old murder case in Buenos Aires. The ac­tors are ex­cel­lent, but it has a few goofy scenes, and the plot points don’t al­ways add up. Rated R. 127 min­utes. In Span­ish with sub­ti­tles. Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Robert Nott) SEX AND THE CITY 2 If you thought SATC was about four smart, funny, so­phis­ti­cated women in New York, this shame­less, bloated at­tempt to cap­i­tal­ize on the fran­chise will dis­abuse you of that no­tion. The girls spend more than half their screen time out of Man­hat­tan, chang­ing clothes ev­ery 10 min­utes in a lav­ish Mid­dle East­ern re­sort. Still, noth­ing new hap­pens. Rated R. 146 min­utes. Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Lau­rel Glad­den) SHREK FOR­EVER AF­TER The lov­ably ugly ogre voiced by Mike My­ers, re­turns for yet an­other ad­ven­ture. This time, Shrek wishes his life away and then tries to get it back. The ac­tion scenes are so-so, and the hu­mor re­lies mostly on old pop songs. It is to be hoped that the Shrek fran­chise’s di­min­ish­ing re­turns have reached the end point. Rated PG. 93 min­utes. Screens in 2-D. Re­gal North, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Robert B. Ker) TOY STORY 3 Buzz, Woody, and the rest of the gang are back in a sur­pris­ingly dark and twisted se­quel. With Andy now 17 and headed for col­lege, the toys find them­selves do­nated to a prison-like day-care cen­ter, from which they must break free. Along the way, the char­ac­ters face their mor­tal­ity, af­firm the value of friend­ship, and come to cher­ish the things that shaped their lives — even as they let go of those things. If your eyes are dry be­neath your 3-D glasses, then you’re made of tougher stuff than I am. Rated G. 103 min­utes. Screens in 3-D and 2-D at Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe. Screens in 3-D only at Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Reel Deal, Los Alamos; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Robert B. Ker) See re­view, Page 58.
