80s Music and Borrowed Memories

SingStreetPoster

What to Watch in the Theater:
Sing Street (PG13) opens today. A must see! Like a John Hughes movie (coming of age in the 80s with great music), but with Irish kids and even more music.

CriminalPoster

Criminal (R) opens today. Kevin Costner as an unlikely action hero will surprise you. Premise borrows a bit from other films.

What to Watch at Home:
The Final Girls (PG13) A fun (but violent) romp with a surprising rating.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier (PG13) Solid movie that gives us more background on characters we already know.

Plus box office results, awards, what’s coming out on video, and more!

What to Watch in the Theater:
Demolition (R) opens today. Compelling vehicle, perfect for Jake Gyllenhall, but where’s the comedy?

TheBossPoster

The Boss (R) opens today. Melissa McCarthy pulls off yet another unlikeable character.

What to Watch at Home:
The Lazarus Effect (PG13) Perfect blend of suspense, sci-fi and horror, and Olivia Wilde is perfect as a creepy character.
Now You See Me (PG13) Entertaining caper full of magic and mystery, with an amazing cast. Can’t wait for the sequel!

What to Watch in the Theater:
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 (PG13) opened last week – are we still drawn to this overly dramatic, meddlesome group, because we can all identify with them?

What to Watch at Home:
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (PG13) – are we just glad all the violence is finally over?
Rock the Kasbah (R) – is Bill Murray’s performance the best or worst thing in this film?
