Cyborgs, Death Days and Romance Blooms at the Movies

George Wolf George Wolf Cyborgs, Death Days and Romance Blooms at the Movies

Weird Valentine’s weekend at the multiplex. We have slasher sequels and Young Adult dystopias, mainly, although we do have a RomCom that wants you to be OK loving RomComs. Not into it? Can we interest you in some bare knuckle brawling? Alita: Battle Angel by Hope Madden Cyberpunk comes to the big screen in the […]

Legos and Liam, Moms and Mind Reading in Theaters

George Wolf George Wolf Legos and Liam, Moms and Mind Reading in Theaters

A pretty mediocre week in new releases, honestly, although a couple of films offer enough charm and/or weirdness to entertain. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part by Hope Madden Everything is not awesome. Don’t tell Emmet (Chris Pratt), though. Try as he might (mainly to please the ever-brooding Lucy/Wildstyle [Elizabeth Banks]), he can’t seem […]

Otherwise, we’ll see some stuff that probably has little chance of making a buck, unless it comes out in the winter wasteland. Bit of both this week. The Upside by Matt Weiner The man […]

‘Twas the Week Before Christmas in Theaters

Hope Madden Hope Madden ‘Twas the Week Before Christmas in Theaters

The holiday onslaught is here! It’s not the greatest pre-Christmas haul we’ve seen, but it is far from the worst. Here’s a quick what’s-what. Aquaman by Matt Weiner A movie that brings together Willem Dafoe, Nicole Kidman, Julie Andrews and Dolph Lundgren is inevitably going to have a lot going on. That’s certainly the case […]

Quiet Weekend of Indies in Theaters

George Wolf George Wolf Quiet Weekend of Indies in Theaters

It’s a surprisingly quiet week in theaters. I guess Hollywood wanted to give you the chance to catch up on the films with Golden Globe noms. (To that end, Glenn Close’s The Wife has been re-released and can be caught on CBUS screens this weekend.) Beyond that, it’s leftover city — or you can feast […]
