Another strange pairing finds us looking at Logan Lucky and The Glass Castle. Expectations were thrown and hopes were somewhat dashed this week as a pretty screwy adventure ended up not all that bad and a setup for a lot of laughs fell flat.
We'll let you know if you need to get to these and catch you up on industry news.
We're a bit into Stephen King here in Bangor, and The Dark Tower is one of his most popular books and series, which means we were looking forward to this one more than most. On the other hand, we were hesitant for several reasons, not least the production problems the film apparently had.
Did things work out? Is this one worthy of the series it's born from?
Adaptations of King's work are famously rather hit or miss, but this is one that we were really holding out hope for.
We'll let you know if this is worth your time and/or where things went wrong.
Atomic Blonde may not have taken over pop culture in the way that the trailers seemed to hope, but it had a fair number of people excited and a lot of critics think it delivered. We were looking forward to this one more than you might think, for several reasons, and there was talk at one point that we may have a Best List hopeful here.
Did it live up to any of the various expectations? We'll let you know, and we'll chime in on industry news and keep you up on some of the new shows coming your way.
Critics are almost unanimous in their love for Dunkirk and we almost joined them in their praise. Actually, one of us did. But, one of us didn't... exactly.
On the flip side of that, not only were critics ready, willing, and able to take a poke at Valerian, but audiences were just fine with the idea of staying away from it. We split on this one as well, but whether you end up loving or hating the mega-budget, space opera, there's a lot of fun involved.
One way or another, these are two that had people talking, and we let you know... hopefully, where you'll land with your reaction.
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.
