In case you weren't aware, it was a bit of a bonkers week, and that doesn't count Comic-Con gear up. We already differed on the previous movies, but we weren't that far apart here. If only...
We'll let you know if you need to see this one in theaters, and we chime in on Doctor Who, The Muppets, and more.
Apes might not be your thing, but there's a lot going on here even you aren't all that certain that Andy Serkis is the next greatest actor ever. I'm not saying he is, by the way.
It was a little rough with Rough Night, and while it definitely had some moments, it left most of the potential just sitting there. It could have been a better film, but it turned out to be mostly a "vacation" effort.
Still, there is some fun to be found there.
We'll let you know everything you need to about this one, and whether or not it might work better for you.
The Dark Universe may be off to a rocky start, even with Tom Cruise, and Universal may have to adjust its theory of pumping money into the franchise it's creating.
But, is it that bad? It's a movie that made some mistakes, and spends too much time on things that are only there so that they can show up in future installments, but there's a lot of fun to be had for those looking for escapism.
Of course, it may also be pretty boring, depending on how you look at things.
We'll let you know if you need to head to this one.
This week we're reviewing Wonder Woman, and DC finally removed some of our fears about the future of the universe. There were some stumbles, but generally, we had a great time with this one, and we're pretty sure most people will as well.
We also give you a rundown of what's coming in June, mainly because there's a lot headed your way this month, and if you only pay attention to the tentpoles, you might miss some gems.
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has taken us on a long and winding road since 2003, and the previous installment gave us little to celebrate. Dead Men Tell No Tales isn't as bad, or confused, as that one, but it doesn't pay enough attention to the story and fun involved to get us back to the level of the first two either.
Johnny Depp is still fun to watch, but the life has mostly been drained out of the series. Luckily, this one still manages to be fairly entertaining.
This week made for a unique episode of the show. Two movies and putting our ratings together still wouldn't get you a good movie. King Arthur had a lot of potential, and even some fun moments, but even in theory it was all over the place. Alien: Covenant was an almost surreal experience, though not an unexpected one when looking back on the last film.
Bigger summer features kick off in a strange pairing as we look at The Fate of the Furious and The Circle. It's hard to tell if either of these films need a critic, or get any benefit/hinderance from good/bad reviews, but we'll let you know if they're worth your time.
We'll also give you a rundown of some of the cooler films we caught at Tribeca, and some of them were really good.
The summer gets underway with The Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and we'll let you know if you need to make sure to get to this one. Spoiler, it's a lot of fun.
We also take you through some of the films headed your way, and discuss recent industry news, including the wild life of Hellboy.
We're reviewing Going in Style this week as we prepare for Tribeca, and what a curious effort it is. Some favorite actors come together to comment on society through the wild idea of retirees who lose their pensions going after a bank job.
We'll also let you in on some of the latest industry news, keep you in the loop on what's coming up, and otherwise give you some insight into the movie world.
Ghost in the Shell quickly became a film surrounded by controversy, which may have had a lot to do with the box-office for a film with Scarlett Johansson floundering. But, is this one any good, and how does it compare to the anime? We'll let you know if you need to get to this one, and we'll let you in on the usual industry news and other fun stuff.
