Ensemble Movies Abound


What to Watch in the Theater:
Suicide Squad (PG13) opens today. This eagerly-anticipated DC Comics film about super villains has an overabundance of characters and an interesting premise. It’s a messy ride, but doesn’t disappoint.


Star Trek: Beyond (PG13) is in theaters now.  Hard not to view this with a nostalgic eye, given it’s the last time this cast will be together. Good story, lots of action and teamwork.

What to Watch at Home:
The Divergent Series: Allegiant (PG13) This part 3 in the series features re-hashed storyline and new sets, making it hard to re-connect with the characters. Now we see why producers chose to make part 4 a TV movie.

Naomi & Ely’s No Kiss List (unrated) Even our teen reviewer just wanted to slap some sense into these characters, and she read the book! Not a good adaptation, although the cast is attractive and seems to play the roles well.

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