This movie was gross in 1974 when it starred Charles Bronson, and it’s super gross in 2018.
Ted Geoghegan’s latest caused a stir at last year’s Fantasia Fest, and it looks bonkers but also amazing. And it’s really cool to see a movie fronted by a First Nations actress (Kaniehtiio Horn).
JLaw stars in the Black Widow movie Marvel waited too long to make.
A Wrinkle In Time
Ava DuVernay tackles Madeleine L’Engle’s book about a young girl who must travel through time and space to save her father. It looks beautiful, but the real test is whether or not DuVernay can make sense of L’Engle’s twisty plotting.
I am super into this, especially as it’s a break in David Oyelowo’s typical Very Earnest style. And there’s bonus Sharlto Copley.
I feel the title says it all.
The Strangers: Prey At Night
The Strangers wasn’t bad, and it’s not that this looks awful, it’s just that it looks the same.
People have been going nuts for this since Sundance last year. The trailer is FANTASTIC, and I can’t wait to finally see this and see if it delivers as promised.
7 Days in Entebbe
Another movie about the 1976 airplane hijacking/hostage situation that resulted in an IDF raid on a resort in Uganda. This looks fine, but I would be more interested in a documentary about this, instead.
A teen rom-com, but it’s about a closeted gay kid who falls for an unknown classmate online. This looks super cute.
This looks super dumb and will not break the video game curse, mark my words.
Isle of Dogs
Wes Anderson returns to stop-motion animation with the story of a boy searching for his dog in the near future. I like the look of this a lot—and I LOVE Anderson’s previous animated film, The Fantastic Mr. Fox—but I guess we’ve all decided not to care about the predominately white voice cast in relation to the Japanese setting.
Pacific Rim: Uprising
When made by Guillermo Del Toro, Pacific Rim barely worked. The sequel is not made by Guillermo Del Toro, so I have no expectations of this being a functional movie. The trailers make it look like a Transformers knock-off.
I don’t even…like…just, okay.
Steven Soderbergh’s latest was shot on an iPhone and looks demented.
Lean On Pete
NO YOU’RE CRYING.
Ready Player One
Steven Spielberg directs Ernest Cline’s fanboy fanfiction, which is like Ina Garten making canned ravioli.
