Here’s this week’s new releases! A heads-up: You might see TV ads saying MIDNIGHT SPECIAL is “Now Playing” but for some reason WB Canada decided to sit on the release for a MONTH. It’ll be released in Toronto April 1 and the rest of Canada April 15. That’s regoddamndiculous. There was no conceivable reason to delay the release, and this just guarantees that a smart little film will be completely abandoned theatrically. Whatever.
THE DIVERGENT SERIES: ALLEGIANT – Ugh. I enjoyed the first film, the second was just terrible, and this one reportedly continues the descent.
MIRACLES FROM HEAVEN – Christian films are getting better quality actors, and based on the 58% rating on RT it’s starting to pay off. It’s still glurge for the soul, but hey, if that’s your deal give’r.
THE BRONZE – Bernadette from TBBT plays a Kerri Strug analogue who’s been coasting on her Olympic success for way too long. Movies about terrible people can be great, but usually they’re a pain to sit through. By most accounts, this is the latter.
