New Movies for May 20/ by /

20 May

Aww yiss, lots of great movies in theatres this week kids. So many that the list is a bit bigger than usual so you don’t miss any good options. Let’s dig in!

THE NICE GUYS – Shane Black’s KISS KISS BANG BANG was one of the best films of the last decade, and he’s back in noir detective potboiler comedy territory here with Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe in tow. Great fun, but don’t watch the most recent trailers since they spoil too much.

NEIGHBORS 2: SORORITY RISING – Very few comedy sequels are as good as the original, but the reviews for this one have been very positive, so if you enjoyed the first dig in for more, featuring Chloe Grace-Moretz as the evil sorority leader.

HIGH RISE – ┬áNot for everyone, but Ben Wheatley’s (KILL LIST, A FIELD IN ENGLAND) latest is a crazy take on J. G. Ballard’s seventies classic starring Tom Hiddleston and Jeremy Irons in a literal class war. It’s completely bananas.

A BIGGER SPLASH – Much smaller fare than you’d expect in the summer, but it features acting royalty throwing down. Tilda Swinton plays an aging rocker decompressing at a beautiful villa who’s forced to reconnect with an old flame (Ralph Fiennes). Just great talent tearing it up.

THE MAN WHO KNEW INFINITY – Dev Patel plays a poor genius struggling to be accepted in higher education. A true story that’s getting lost in the sweep of the summer movie season, but still worth your time.

THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE – Nobody asked for this, but it markets itself, so here you go. It’s not terrible, but lord it ain’t good either.
