Cars 3 | © 2017 Disney Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. CARS 3 When the trailer came out for CARS 3 it wasn’t sure if this was going to be a kids movie or if it was targeted at adults because of its serious tone. Luckily, the full feature isn’t at all like this and in fact, serves more as a true sequel to the original than CARS 2 ever does. Sure it is impossible to capture that original flare and imagination from the first film, but it does a pretty good job of matching the charm. Here […]Read On »

Dorsey Writer: Jason Hall, based on the book by David Finkel Director: Jason Hall Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: October 27, 2017 THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE takes its title from the phrase commonly uttered to U.S. soldiers home from the war.

Rating: R Stars: Michael Fassbender, Rebecca Ferguson, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jonas Karlsson, Michael Yates, Ronan Vibert, J.K. Simmons, Val Kilmer, David Dencik, Toby Jones, Genevieve O’Reilly, James D’Arcy Writers: Peter Straughan and Hossein Amini and Saren Sveistrup, based on the novel by Jo Nesbo Director: Tomas Alfredson Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: October 20, 2017 There might never be a great week for it, but this feels like especially bad timing for a movie like THE SNOWMAN to be released. With #MeToo hashtags prominent on the Internet and discussion of gender imbalance everywhere, this doesn’t seem like the best moment for […]Read On »



HAPPY DEATH DAY movie poster | ©2017 Universal Pictures

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Jessica Rothe, Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, Rachel Matthews, Charles Aitken, Jason Bayle, Phi Vu, Rob Mello, Cariella Smith, Caleb Spillyards Writer: Scott Lobdell Director: Christopher Landon Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 13, 2017  GROUNDHOG DAY isn’t the only tale of someone stuck reliving the same day over and over, but it’s perhaps the best-known in pop culture. Also, it’s the one that gets eventually name-checked in HAPPY DEATH DAY, so it seems appropriate to use that 1993 comedy as a reference point. HAPPY DEATH DAY has, as its basic premise, GROUNDHOG DAY redone as a PG-13 college-set […]Read On »


Movie Review: MARSHALL

MARSHALL movie poster | ©2017 Open Road

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Chadwick Boseman, Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Sterling K. Brown, Dan Stevens, James Cromwell Writers: Jacob Koskoff & Michael Koskoff Director: Reginald Hudlin Distributor: Open Road Release Date: October 13, 2017 Going into MARSHALL, knowing only that it stars Chadwick Boseman as legal legend Thurgood Marshall, the first African-American justice to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, one can be forgiven for supposing it’s a biopic. In fact, MARSHALL is based on a very small slice of biography. Set in 1940, when Marshall was the top lawyer for the N.A.A.C.P., the film turns out to be a mixture […]Read On »


New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 10/3


Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES Supposedly this is the last film in the franchise, the fifth film based on a freaking amusement park ride in Disneyland. Don’t get me wrong, these films have been fun from the get-go but after five of them, it has become a little long-in-the-tooth to see Captain Jack Sparrow continually get into trouble, fumble his way through problems for two hours only to have it all work out in the end. This time Sparrow must once again deal […]Read On »


Movie Review: BLADE RUNNER 2049

Rating: R Stars: Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Mackenzie Davis, Carla Juri, Lennie James, Dave Bautista, Jared Leto Writers: Hampton Fancher and Michael Green, story by Hampton Fancher, based on characters from the novel DO ANDROIDS DREAM OF ELECTRIC SHEEP? By Philip K. Dick Director: Denis Villeneuve Distributor: Warner Bros/Columbia Pictures Release Date: October 6, 2017 BLADE RUNNER 2049 is set thirty years after the events of the original 1982 BLADE RUNNER. It is a sequel that honors and expands on its predecessor. Directed by Ridley Scott from a screenplay by Hampton Fancher and […]Read On »



THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US movie poster| ©2017 20th Century Fox

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet Writers: Chris Weitz and J. Miles Goodloe, based on the novel by Charles Martin Director: Hany Abu-Assad Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: October 6, 2017 The following observation is totally sincere: one thing THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US has going for it is that it does not lose track of the dog that is essentially the third lead character. Most movies with a similar set-up wrongly assume that much of the audience isn’t invested in animal companions, and make us worry that the characters, the filmmakers or both have simply left the poor […]Read On »



AMERICAN MADE movie poster | ©2017 Universal Pictures

Rating: R Stars: Tom Cruise, Domnhall Gleeson, Sarah Wright Olsen, Jesse Plemons, Caleb Landry Jones, Alejandro Edda, Fredy Yate Escobar, Mauricio Mejia Writer: Gary Spinelli Director: Doug Liman Distributor: Universal Release Date: September 29, 2017 AMERICAN MADE feels a little like a fever dream, especially for those who have been watching both the documentary THE VIETNAM WAR and the fact-based drama NARCOS. AMERICAN MADE certainly stands on its own, but it is set temporally between the events covered in those other two projects, and there is a feeling of cause and effect flow from one to the other. Barry Seal, […]Read On »



THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT 2 movie poster | ©2017 RLJ Entertainment

Rating: R Stars: Brandy Schaefer, Zack Andrews, Bobby Roe, Mikey Roe, Jeff Larson Writers: Zack Andrews & Bobby Roe Director: Bobby Roe Distributor: RLJ Entertainment Release Date (theatrical and on demand): September 22, 2017  The original THE HOUSES OCTOBER BUILT, released three years ago, was a modest but solid found-footage horror movie. Its premise was that five friends – Bobby Roe (who directed and co-wrote the script), Zack Andrews (also a writer on the film), Brandy Schaefer, Mikey Roe and Jeff Larson – set off during Halloween season to find and document extreme haunted house events. Since this is a […]Read On »
