Your entertainment recap of the latest happenings in movies, television and pop culture for the week of Aug. 5th through 11th.
“The Peanut Butter Falcon” is quickly becoming one of the year’s sweetest, and best, films yet.
Anyone who’s ever owned a four-legged friend has wondered what’s going on inside their furry head. There has to be more than just tennis balls, bones and chasing squirrels, right? “The Art of Racing in the Rain” is the latest film to try and answer that question, giving a voice to man’s best friend as he accompanies his owner through life.
We’re over halfway through the year, so it’s time to take a look at some of the best movies of 2019, so far.
For the first time ever, the MPAA rating was forced to specify “all involving tweens,” and that’s what differentiates Good Boys from every other raunchy comedy.
After a months-long barrage of trailers, promos and behind the scenes sneak peeks, “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” is finally cruising its way into theaters this Friday. If the never ending flood of teasers gave away anything, it’s how absolutely wild this movie would be – and it does not disappoint.
Two months after “Avengers: Endgame” concluded an epic 22-movie saga, “Spider-Man: Far From Home” is here to officially wrap up Phase 3 of Marvel’s never-ending universe and tease what’s to come.
“Visually stunning” seems to be the go-to buzz word when it comes to this rendition, and that’s absolutely true, but beyond the visuals, there’s nothing revolutionary here.
Let’s get one thing straight: Toy Story 4 is undeniably a major cash grab. Hollywood may love great storytelling, but they love money even more. Toy Story 4 is about as unnecessary as a film can be, but it’s filled with heart, compelling characters and witty humor.
With all the business of graduation, vacation and new employment, I’ve fallen behind on my reviews. So, instead of completely skipping out. here’s one big mega-review, with shorter musings on everything I saw last month.
As the movie comes to a close, Jean delivers a final voiceover that’s quite on the nose, saying, “This is not the end of me, or the X-Men. It’s a new beginning.” Let’s just hope the new beginning with Disney and Marvel Studios results in a more stable series of mutants.
On the surface, “Booksmart” may look like just another high school party flick, but that’s not the case. Instead, it’s a wicked smart, incredibly-paced and flat out hilarious look at what high school, and teenagers, are really like in 2019.
After stealing the show in 2011’s “Bridesmaids,” Rebel Wilson seemed poised to break out as one of comedy’s next leading ladies. But it turned out the once hilarious bit was the only thing in Wilson’s repertoire, as she proceeded to bring the same worn-out shtick to every role she could get her hands on– and “The Hustle”is no exception.
As the Avengers conclude their first era, it’s clear that certain faces will be missed moving forward. But, for the first time in the franchise’s 23-film history, it actually feels like something is coming to an end here.
If you don’t like something, that is totally, 100 percent fine. I’m sure there are things in the world that you’re passionate about, too. But just because you don’t understand the love for whatever the current trend is, doesn’t mean you need to go out of your way to put someone down just to try and get likes or reposts on social media.
With all of these big names hogging the spotlight, it can be hard to hear about the other exciting films to look out for this summer, and there are plenty to put on your calendar. So, if you ever get tired of superheroes, monsters or remakes, head to the theater to check out some of these films.
