The Angry Birds Movie (PG) opens today. It’s a fun ride, even if you haven’t played the game. Likable characters on a mission plus the cutest baby birds.

Neighbors2Poster

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (R) opens today. This sequel is nearly identical to the original, with a different gender of partiers. Entertaining, if you enjoy gross-out adult-themed stoner humor.

What to Watch at Home:
A Brilliant Young Mind (PG13) An interesting coming of age story with a twist, loosely based on a true story.
The Transporter Refueled (PG13) A reboot with an interesting premise, that makes us want to see the original trilogy.

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.

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!
