New Movies for September 30/ by /

30 Sep

One more week of September! Okay, one more day. But it still counts. So here’s this week’s new releases!

MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN – Tim Burton tries to recapture some of the old glory, with mixed results. It certainly LOOKS like a Burton film, and Eva Green looks as Eva Green as she’s gonna get, plus it’s certainly got a unique style. Should be worth your time.

DEEPWATER HORIZON – I didn’t expect this one to end up with critic blurbs like “a triumph of the human spirit” but hey, who doesn’t love surprises. Focused solely on the rig’s explosion, it’s intense as hell and supposedly tugs the heartstrings too, if you let it. Good on ya, Peter Berg. Check it out in IMAX, though it’s just the enhanced version, not the real thing.

QUEEN OF KATWE – Disney tells the true story of a Ugandan girl who becomes a chess sensation. Lupita Nyong’o finally gets a starring role in a warm-n-fuzzy sensation, but it’s in a unique setting, so it’s worth checking out. Plus it’s directed by Indian-Canadian Mira Nair (MONSOON WEDDING) so you’re kinda supporting your local filmmaker.

MASTERMINDS – Jared Hess (NAPOLEON DYNAMITE) gets a crack at a killer cast, but ends up with mixed results. Kristen Wiig, Zack Galifianakis, Kate McKinnon, Jason Sudekis, Owen Wilson, Leslie Jones… not everyone gets used properly, but there’s some laughs in there if you like smart/dumb comedies.
