New Movies for March 11/ by /

11 Mar

Hey there, you look like you could use a look at the week’s movies. Here, let me help you with that.

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE – It’s a sidequel. DO NOT EXPECT GIANT MONSTERS. I still think it’s a good thriller that’s been hammered into the CLOVERFIELD universe, but the reviews have been super positive. But is it worth IMAX? I haven’t seen it yet, but I don’t think a movie about three people locked in a bunker warrants the cashola. Still worth seeing though.

WHISKY TANGO FOXTROT – Tina Fey finally plays a smart person on the big screen! It’s the true story of an embed journalist dealing with the insanity of the middle east. Smart and funny but not exceptional. Should be fine at home.

THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY – Sasha Baron Cohen is back in gross-out mode to mixed results, but dammit, it’s a Mark Strong film too. It’s on the edge, but it should be worth seeing on the big screen. Super British though, so if you’re an Anglophile you’ll be in your element.

LONDON HAS FALLEN – OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN had some great 80s R-Rated action, and this is more of the same, like it or not. I do, though I haven’t seen this one yet. If you like folks getting stabbed in the head, see it today.

THE MERMAID – I actually went to see this on Saturday, and I didn’t really dig it, though the almost entirely Chinese crowd seemed to love it. An interesting experiment for me, but it doesn’t cross cultures (and it doesn’t even really try).

WHERE TO INVADE NEXT – Michael Moore’s latest isn’t quite up to snuff based on the reviews. It’s a bit facile, not worth paying theatre prices for.

THE YOUNG MESSIAH – Smarter than the average Jeebus flick, but still pretty boring. No one has the balls to tell an interesting story in biblical times, especially involving the man himself.
