Breaking In

Taken + Panic Room + Gabrielle Union = YES PLEASE

(Really just Gabrielle Union = YES PLEASE)

Book Club

Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen, and Mary Steenburgen in one movie? I don’t even care what it’s about, or that the Fifty Shades of Grey hook is like, four years past its sell-by date. At least.

Deadpool 2

May or may not be the last Deadpool movie in this style, depending on what happens with Marvel after the Disney/Fox merger, so enjoy it while it lasts. Also, PETER FOR LIFE.

Show Dogs

I guess we have to ask what the set conditions were like for the doggos.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

Why isn’t this just a Lando movie?
