The weekend of Thanksgiving often has a surge in opening movies since post Thanksgiving movies have a nasty habit of slumping box office (minus a few exceptions).
The Babadook -IMDB- IMDB rating 6.9 (Drama/Horror/Thriller) Most horror movies I don’t like these days. I like a horror movie that makes me uneasy, but not disgust me. This may be a film I’d like more. Less torture-porn and more creepy with a story.
Before I Disappear IMDB 7.4 (Drama)- I have little to say about this movie. It’s a drama that may or may not be uplifting. A man down on his luck that needs to watch his eleven-year-old niece. Sometimes watching a movie you know little to nothing about is refreshing because you have no expectations for it to live up or down to.
The Imitation Game IMDB 8.4 (Biography/Drama/Thriller) Starring- Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightly This movie is about Alan Turing who helped crack the enigma code used by the Nazi’s in World War Two. I respect a lot of what Cumberbatch puts out there and he seems very passionate about this film.
Penguins of Madagascar (Animation/Adventure/Comedy)- Starring the voices of Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, and Andy Richter. Did you watch the Madagascar movies? If you did, chances are you know these penguins quite well already. While the movies overall are just okay to me, but the penguins were often the best parts of those movies for me. I was unsure they could pull off their own movie, but the trailers look fairly promising and the overall rating of 7.5 on IMDB is promising. I’m not expecting best animated movie of the year, but it should be pleasurable enough to pass the time.
Horrible Bosses 2 (Comedy) Starring Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day, Jennifer Aniston, Jamie Foxx, Chris Pine, Kevin Spacey. The first Horrible Bosses (2011) was pretty funny; funnier than I thought it would be. They bring back much of the same cast for this film. So, now these guys are the bosses of their companies and thing turn for the worst. They decide to get back into the crime world with a kidnapping scheme which of course doesn’t go as planned. I doubt this movie can live up to the first one, but I’m hopeful it will make me laugh enough that I’d not be disappointed.
