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.
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.
“Gloria Bell” works as an excellent stage for Moore to flex her acting muscles, but beyond her display, there isn’t much else to keep audiences engaged.
“Pet Sematary” is a middle of the road horror adaptation with a handful of solid scares and unnerving performances, that ultimately struggles to overcome issues with pacing and an abundance of exposition.
“Dumbo” is a rare swing and a miss for Disney, with lackluster performances and an extremely basic narrative. Director Tim Burton’s stylistic flair makes for some beautiful visuals and serves as one of the film’s few redeeming qualities.
