MoneyMonsterPoster

What to Watch in the Theater:
Money Monster (R) opens today. Similar to The Big Short, but with focus more on characters and less on financial stuff.  An entertaining journey with some interesting twists.

The Longest Ride (PG13) Likable characters plus an interesting way to intertwine two love stories.
Air (PG13) A dystopian story with an unusual premise.

Of Factions and Fairytales

CACWPoster

What to Watch in the Theater:
Captain America: Civil War (PG13) opens today. It’s like Avengers 2.5 – is this a good thing or a bad thing? A little disturbing to see our heroes pitted against each other, but a good story with both action and drama scenes.

HuntsmanWWPoster

The Huntsman: Winter’s War (PG13) is in theaters now. This sequel only shares a couple of characters with the original, but spins an interesting new story.

What to Watch at Home:
Walt Before Mickey (PG) Wasn’t as well made as we would’ve liked.
Crimson Peak (R) A new take on a period piece scary story.

A Good Week for Comedies

MothersDayPoster

What to Watch in the Theater:
Mother’s Day (PG) opens today. Garry Marshall does it again, with an entertaining ensemble and good mix of story lines.

KeanuPoster

Keanu (R) opens today. Key & Peele’s first movie has us looking forward to even more from this daring duo. And it’s impossible not to love that adorable kitten!

What to Watch at Home:
Norm of the North (PG) Waste of a cast – animation doesn’t usually disappoint like this.
Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death (PG13) The original didn’t need a sequel, especially one this bad. Skip it!

The Jungle (Like Life) is Better with Meddling

TheJungleBookPoster

What to Watch in the Theater:
The Jungle Book (PG) is in theaters now. If you’re a fan of the original, you may feel conflicted. Sit back and enjoy the visuals, familiar voices and a wonderful newcomer. Too scary for the really little ones.

TheMeddlerPoster

The Meddler (PG13) opens today. Don’t discount this film as a chick flick. Everybody needs a mom to help them out sometimes.

What to Watch at Home:
Sisters (R) A last hurrah for a pair of sisters – a switch-up on the “grown men acting stupid” premise.
Black Mass (R) Great performance by an unrecognizable Johnny Depp and supporting cast. This is how the mob works the system to continue their illegal activities and violence.
