*** (out of four) I don't get much enjoyment seeing sharp blades slice through a person's skin. In “Machete Kills,” when Machete (Danny Trejo) cuts up an enemy's abdomen, yanks the poor guy's intestines and tosses them into a helicopter blade, I'm wincing, and not in a fun way. Maybe you disagree. That said, director Robert Rodriguez's violent sequel to the little-seen 2010 exploitation flick “Machete” doesn't resign itself only to grisly dismembments. (Though there are plenty.)

*** (out of four) When Nancy (Kate Winslet) vomits all over Penelope's (Jodie Foster) coffee table art books midway into the darkly funny “Carnage,” it's not the last time something comes up that can't be suppressed anymore. This big-screen adaptation of the hit play “God of Carnage,” in which two couples (Foster and John C. Reilly/Winslet and Christoph Waltz) discuss one of their sons attacking the other with a stick, exclusively features characters that have been dying for an opportunity to say everything that's been bubbling inside them.

*1/2 (out of four) Breaking news: When you get married, you will inevitably deal with your spouse's family and exes in some capacity! This is the major insight of writer-director Edward Burns' inane “Newlyweds,” which has nothing in common with “Bridesmaids” but shares a lot with many other sources. Burns (“The Brothers McMullen”) bites conflict from a “Seinfeld” episode, a line from “Chasing Amy” and needlessly has characters address the camera ala “The Office” to comment on what just happened.
