IMDB: 7.6 of 4,830 ratings
I’m actually excited for this even though I have a pretty good idea what is going to happen. It’s not the destination but the journey that matters.Expect a brilliantly crafted and intense film that may see a few Oscar nods.
The Maze Runner: Scorch Trials
Genre:Action, Science Fiction, Thriller
IMDB: 7.2 of 9,155
Another young adult fiction movie with a sequel. I didn’t like the original movie called The Maze Runner (2014). I thought the ending was terrible and the acting average at best. The story was never believable and there were tired sci-fi tropes everywhere. From the looks of this film, I am not hoping for better. I believe it could be a hit for people between the ages of 11-19, but that’s about where I draw the line. That is an important demographic, the movie may wind up winning the box-office this weekend, but not expecting much more than Divergent series numbers.
Genre: Biopic, Crime, Drama
Starring: Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton, Corey Stoll, Adam Scott, Kevin Bacon, Benedict Cumberbatch
Inspired by the true story of Whitey Bulger’s rise to infamy. He remains the most famous violent criminal in South Boston history. Basically, he becomes an FBI informant to take down the mafia who he sees as a legitimate threat.
I dislike crime-dramas in general, but I also respect them greatly because they often have some of the best acting performances of the year. Here is another film that is sure to be loaded with magnificent acting performances.
IMDB: 8.3 of 4,203 ratings
Genre:Action, Crime, Drama,
Starring: Emily Blunt, Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Jon Bernthal
An idealistic F.B.I. agent joins an exclusive task force to combat the escalating drug war at the United States-Mexican border.
IMDB: 7.9 of 2,320
This is yet another film that features potential Oscar winning talent such as Emily Blunt. It looks like a well crafted and poignant take on the troubling drug war going on along our borders.
Starring: Tobey Maguire,Liev Strieber
IMDB: 7.5 of 606 ratings
Tobey Maguire plays the eccentric Bobby Fischer as he challenges the Soviet empire to a game of chess. It breaks down Fischer’s many personal issues, and the elements of that event in greater detail than ever shown before. I’m not a huge fan of chess based movies (the few that actually exist), but this may be a solid movie to watch. Filled with historical drama about a truly unique and sometimes unnerving American.
