Since I write many of these briefs the day before the movies are released, what we have here are mostly ruminations on movies I have not yet seen. You will have to decide for yourself if these briefs have any value. I believe the less you know about a movie, the better chance you might enjoy it to the upside. Too many reviewers seem to go out of their ways to ruin for you with way too much information your upcoming movie experience. In fact my D graded Master’s Thesis proposed that reviews should be embargoed until after the opening weekends allowing moviegoers to see the movies fresh and without plot summaries taken right out of the press kits.
Movie Guru's Current Movie Briefs
- The Creator
Everyone must know more about The Creator than I do. Since seeing the first trailer for this big, futuristic movie about I assume robots against humanity, I have been looking forward to it, especially in our XD theater. The preview was certainly powerful, and I expect even more from the actual movie.
- Paw Patrol: The Mighty Movie
The three little grandkids can’t wait. I can wait, but I won’t. The point is, this is also a terrific TV show for young children. They really enjoy it, and it’s just a wonderful show for children. I repeat myself because there are so few that hit all the right notes with young children. Check it out.
A 90 minute documentary on Carlos Santana. You can never go wrong watching a documentary with clips of anyone in the arts or the public eye that shows early footage because it’s fun to watch. I do believe that Carlos has said some very ugly things about various groups. However by now we all know we have to accept that our favorites have feet of clay.
- Saw X
The 10th in the series , I wish them well. I have absolutely no interest. The first one was original and definitely a new way of looking at horror. Since then there have been many copies, but none will take the place of this series. I do hope no one goes, and we don’t export it to any other country. Ha, ha, ha ha ha.
- The Blind
I believe this is a Christian film and many of them are well worth seeing. I expect a very intelligent look at a story that is based on what I hope is the true story about a young man who goesvthrough a lifecycle that many of us will recognize.
- Expendables 4
Anyway you look at it, Sylvester Stallone is a movie beast. Starting with the Rocky franchise and moving into the Rambo franchise, and now the Expendables franchise, action fans have gotten their moneys worth for his entire career. If you haven’t seen any of the Expendables one two or three, I assume you’re not interested. But if you are an action fan, you should give it a try. It is first on my list for this weeks movie going.
- Dumb Money
This should be a good one cataloging the months and memes that lead to young amateur investors winning and losing tens of millions of dollars while the wise guys on Wall Street lost billions. The focus is on the Game Stop hysteria.
- It Lives Inside
I believe I skipped it lives. In fact, I know I skipped it lives, though I am not sure there is such a thing as it lives. Anyway, I am less than interested in this movie. I am overwhelmed by “horror, movies.”
- Retirement Plan
Click on the trailer. Another Nicolas Cage, low budget, raucous, action comedy entertainment only for his target audience. I will be there opening day.
- A Haunting in Venice
Kenneth Branagh’s latest incarnation of Hercule Poirot murder mystery with Gothic intentions. If it works, it will be a good time for all, with plenty of chills and thrills, and as always a surprise killer.
- My Big Fat Greek Wedding 3
This is a tough one. Decades ago the first Greek wedding was a surprise hit, and a surprisingly fun time at the movies. The second Greek wedding was definitely not as fresh. Now here comes a third and do I think that audiences will find it refreshing? Among this summer of hits and misses, I have no idea.
Gay high school girls start a fight club to attract hot cheerleaders, in a raunchy, anything goes comedy. Obviously not for everyone, but I will need to see it before I tip the scales one way or another. From the preview I can say give it a try, but it’s your call.
- The Nun 2
If you have fond memories of the original nun, you will probably enjoy this nun too. I believe this is the seventh in the successful Conjuring series. I liked the first one.
- Equalizer 3
The TV show was excellent and a cult hit. The movies with Denzel Washington are more traditional shoot em ups. Everyone is dead except Denzel. With the TV show there was plot and psychology and powerless victims and anonymity. The first movie version tried to get it. The second was pretty much generic stupidity. I am going opening day and, as always, hoping for the best.
The less I know the better. Another B action movie with Liam Neeson. Who can resist?
- Gran Turismo: Based on a True Story
I believe this is the first time “based on a true story“ has ever been used in a title. Since I believe this is about the video game player who beats out all comers and is now a professional race car driver, I look forward to a documentary on this true story somewhere down the line. But I don’t mind watching the Hollywood version especially in our reclining seat XD premium picture and sound theater.
- Blue Beetle
Who wants to write negative things about a film, which looks like it is making an honest effort to fuse family with superhero? Shazam’s best parts are with family, and I get a similar vibe from Blue Beetle previews. Hoping for the best.
- Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part One
Tom Cruise, American movie star, creator of action masterpieces. Once a great actor, now a superstar stuntman. I love him. How does he do it? But I think I loved him more when he was stretching his acting chops in all kinds of roles, big and small, in all kinds of movies. (And I prefer the great Harrison Ford in the TV show 1883 over his work in the current Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.
