New Movies for August 12, 2016/ by /

12 Aug

Struggling to get through the movie listings? Trying to use those free movie coupons? Here’s a look at what’s in theatres this week!

SAUSAGE PARTY – A filthy, insane look at the secret life of food. If you anthropomorphise food, it’s only logical that at some point it’s going to realise its purpose in life is to be slashed, shredded, and boiled or fried. What happens then? The makers of THIS IS THE END have decided to answer that question, and it’s hilarious.

PETE’S DRAGON – On the other end of the spectrum is this delightful family film. Sure, it’s a remake, but the original doesn’t exactly hold up. Even though it’s the story of a boy and his dragon, it’s more grounded this time, but the reviews have been very positive. Worth taking the kids, but as an adult only go if you need to feed your inner child.

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS – A bit early for Oscar Bait, but here’s Meryl Streep taking another shot at the gold, playing a true life character who showed the world that anyone can be famous, even if you’re terrible. If you’re looking for a feel-good comedy, this is a good bet, but it’s a bit much.

SUICIDE SQUAD – Allow me to add my voice to the chorus: This movie is a mess. Terrible plot, terrible dialogue, decent action, one great performance (Will Smith), two decent ones (Margot Robbie and Jay Hernandez’ Diablo) and a whole lot of wretched ones (especially Joel Kinnaman’s Flagg).  And lord, Jared Leto’s Joker is a nightmare. Not worth it, even for the cameos.
