Wow, big week. It’s uncommon for a summer weekend to see so many studio releases all at once – does that mean the competition’s not that sure about the “blockbuster” status of Men In Black: International? Well, they’re not wrong. Not that it’s bad, exactly, but what else is there to see? Late Night by […]

Aladdin by George Wolf Stepping in for Robin Williams as the Genie in Aladdin was always going to be a thankless task, but while everyone was busy debating the casting of Will Smith, the director’s chair went largely unnoticed. Could Guy Ritchie, who’s evolved from rough and tumble British crime capers (Snatch) to both big […]

Man, there are a lot of movies opening this weekend. None really has a shot at unseating Endgame for the top spot, although Keanu and his dog might be eyeballing that seat for next week. In the meantime, though, studios and indies alike are taking a chance at capturing your imagination. Mostly they fail, but […]

Studios figured the Marvel capper would still be raking in the dough this weekend, so there are no sure fire blockbusters being released. Instead, for a rainy couple of days, you’ll find a smattering of smaller films opening all over town. Some of them are pretty great. Some of them are definitely not. We’ll walk […]

Weird mix of stuff in theaters this weekend. Disney’s big reboot or a riveting true story of terrorism and heroism? Matthew McConaughey getting high with Snoop Dogg and Jimmy Buffett or an Icelandic vigilante with a string quartet in tow? Let’s dig in.

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 […]

It’s a light week in cinemas as a lot of theaters bring back new Oscar nominations. Indeed, Gateway is screening 10-time nominee Roma in 70mm. Still, there are a couple of new flicks worth checking out. Stan & Ollie Wouldn’t it be nutty to peek behind the curtain of one of cinema’s most famous pairs […]
