Last week for April! Next stop: Summermovieville. But there are some great releases this week!
KEANU – KEY & PEELE was a seminal sketch series with some of the funniest skits to ever hit the small screen, and they’ve finally made the jump to the big screen with this one. Of course, it’ll also probably be their only film, but hey, let’s enjoy it. They’ve chosen to ignore W.C. Fields’ advice and chosen to make the world’s cutest kitten their co-star, but hey, cute kittie! Reviews have been very positive but it’s not perfect, though it’s still more than worth your time.
GREEN ROOM – This one’s been killing it at festivals, and now it’s time for everyone to feel the terror. A punk band witnesses a murder and is terrorized by skinheads, fronted by Mr. Captain Patrick Stewart, providing one of the greatest film villain performances ever.
LOUDER THAN BOMBS – Family drama, led by Jesse Eisenberg and Gabriel Byrne. A war photographer’s death tears her family apart, and her secrets make things even worse. So yeah, happy fun times.
RATCHET & CLANK – Sony’s near-mascots get their big-screen debut, but unfortunately it’s not very good. A real shame, it’s a vibrant universe but I guess we’ll have to stick with the games.
MOTHER’S DAY – By all accounts, one of the worst Hollywood ensemble romantic comedies of all time, and that’s saying something. Don’t let your mom see it. Take her to HELLO MY NAME IS DORIS or SING STREET or even the friggin’ JUNGLE BOOK.
