Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping
The Lonely Island has done the thing we thought would never be done—made a satirical mockumentary as funny as This Is Spinal Tap.
Me Before You
This looks like English Nicholas Sparks. At least one of these people is dying by the end.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows
More like “out of your nightmares”. The turtles continue to look like garbage hellbeasts.
In 1964 Kitty Genovese was murdered outside her apartment in Queens, New York. The New York Times alleged that 38 witnesses failed to intervene, but it has since come out that that was an exaggeration, at best. This documentary, featuring Kitty’s brother, reexamines the case that became the prime example of the “bystander effect”. True crime fans will probably get more out of this than anyone.
The Conjuring 2
Which part of this is the true part? Is it the demons?
A biopic about editor Max Perkins, who worked with the likes of Thomas Wolfe, Ernest Hemingway, and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Standard period fare.
Now You See Me 2
I can’t believe this is a real movie.
I really like Duncan Jones, and I hope for his sake Warcraft is good and does well, but man…this looks rough.
As stupid as this looks, the trailer makes me laugh every time. I feel like it’s asking too much for this AND Popstar to be great comedies in the same month, though.
I feel like such a curmudgeon for saying it but I’m not feeling Finding Dory at all.
Swiss Army Man
You had me at “Dan Radcliffe’s farting corpse”.
Free State of Jones
The Civil War gets the Michael Bay treatment.
Independence Day: Resurgence
The Neon Demon
Nicholas Winding Refn returns with a giallo-inspired film about a murderous model. I’m into it on paper, but Only God Forgives was so unwatchable I’m now scared of Refn films.
You had me at “Blake Lively gets eaten by a shark”.
