One for action-thriller fans, the other for documentary buffs -- two films to choose from this weekend. We have "Resident Evil: Afterlife" and "I'm Still Here," the documentary (or a mockumentary, or both?) about the career reinvention of Joaquin Phoenix as documented by his brother-in-law, Casey Affleck. "I'm Still Here" is in limited release so check your local theaters. Here are my reviews of both movies:
