New Movies for October 21, 2016/ by /

21 Oct

Been a few weeks since I got one of these up, so I’ll throw in a quick blurb for everything’s that come out since then.

JACK REACHER: NEVER GO BACK – I was super excited for this but the reviews have been pretty brutal, saying it’s nothing like the first film. I guess Edward Zwick is no Christopher McQuarrie, but that’s not really a surprise. Ah well.

OUIJA: ORIGIN OF EVIL – Turns out this is a prequel, I forgot the first one existed. But if you’re looking for a scare this Halloween season this is your only big-screen option, luckily the reviews are surprisingly positive. Should deliver the goods.

THE ACCOUNTANT – Affleck seems miscast as an autistic accountant with a gift for violence, but reviews say it’s a pretty decent thriller, like a 90s Grisham knock-off.

THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN – Definitely not this year’s GONE GIRL, it’s a mediocre thriller with a great cast. Seems to be a theme this month.

KEVIN HART: WHAT NOW? – Chronicling Hart’s record breaking live show in his hometown, your interest is pretty much linked to your love of his previous stand up material. Won’t make new fans but it’s a perfectly cromulent comedy.

KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES – This is a disappointment. Despite a great cast with Zach Galifianakis, Isla Fisher, Jon Hamm, and Gal Godot, it’s basically sitcom level laughs and a dumb plot. Good for a Netflix choice next year.

AMERICAN PASTORAL – Ewan McGregor’s directorial debut was panned by critics and won’t get much of a release, sadly. It tells the tale of a family torn apart by the daughter’s involvement with radicals in the 1960s.
