New Movies for November 11, 2016/ by /

12 Nov

I’m gonna be blunt. You need to get your ass to the movies this week. You don’t just need escapism, you need to feel better about humanity, and there are some fantastic choices out there.

ARRIVAL – One of the year’s best films. Denis Villeneuve’s SICARIO was a tour de force, and this could be even better. Amy Adams is a linguist tasked with communicating with an alien species whose massive ships hang ominously in every major city. Smart as hell and absolutely worth a trip to the theatre.

LOVING – An authentic, heartbreaking story of an interracial romance in the 1960s. Amazing, understated performances from PREACHER’s Ruth Negga and WARRIOR’s Joel Edgerton are getting Oscar attention, and rightly so.

ANOTHER CHRISTMAS – Again, too damn early for a Christmas movie. They’re not trying to reinvent the wheel but they’re not breaking any paradigms either. Good actors doing their best to elevate soft, non-threatening family melodrama/comedy. But hey, Danny Glover gets to say that he’s getting too old for this shit, so yay!

SHUT IN – This thriller starring Naomi Watts is getting terrible reviews, currently rocking a 0% at Rotten Tomatoes. Clich├ęd nonsense with a great actress doing the best with what she’s got.
