Movies

Sicario

Sicario – An idealistic FBI agent is brought into a special government agency in a joint task force to use one drug boss to bring down another. However they are led by a consultant with a hidden past that may not be exactly what he seems. Stars Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Victor Garber, Daniel Kaluuya, Jeffrey Donovan, and Jon Bernthal. Rated R.

The Walk

The Walk – The Walk tells the true story of Philippe Petit, a French high-wire performer, who performed an illegal high-wire walk between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. Philippe and his accomplices were eventually arrested but released for the feat that had Philippe cross between the towers 4 times. Though the stunts were done on a soundstage, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was trained personally by Philippe Petit on how to walk on a high-wire, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt learned to speak French fluently for the film. Stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ben Kingsley, Charlotte Le Bon, James Badge Dale, Ben Schwartz, and Steve Valentine. Rated PG.

The Visit

The Visit – Originally we thought that The Visit was being billed as a horror comedy because it was a M. Night Shyamalan movie that was so bad that it was forced to market itself that way. Becca and Tyler are sent to visit their grandparents house for the first time while their mother goes on a weeklong cruise. Becca and Tyler had never met their grandparents since their mother estranged from them following an incident over 15 years ago. While things start off as normal, they begin to notice increasingly strange behavior that then takes a horrifying turn when they find out their secret. Stars Olivia DeJonge, Ed Oxenbould, Deanna Dunagan, Peter McRobbie, and Kathryn Hahn. Rated PG-13.

The Green Inferno

The Green Inferno – Inspired from the Italian cannibal films of the 1970s and 1980s, Eli Roth comes with an attempt to bring back the cannibal horror genre (which I wasn’t even aware was a thing). A group of student activists travels to the Amazon to save the rainforest from being bulldozed. Dressing up as construction workers to infiltrate the group to put a stop to the demolition, they return in a small plane that crashes and are mistaken by a cannibal tribe to be the same group of construction workers that are trying to force them from their homes. Things obviously don’t go well. Stars Lorenza Izzo, , Ariel Levy, Daryl Sabara, Kirby Bliss Blanton, Sky Ferreira, Magda Apanowicz, Nicolás Martinez, Aaron Burns, Ignacia Allamand, and Richard Burgi. Rated R.

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse

Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse – Three Scouts (notice they don’t really say which type of Scouts) considering quitting scouting, accidentally avoid a zombie outbreak by going camping. But when they return and discover the attacking zombie masses, they team up with a surviving cocktail waitress and together battle their way through the hoards of zombies using their scouting skills to help them survive and stop the zombie outbreak and save their town. Stars Tye Sheridan, Logan Miller, Joey Morgan, Sarah Dumont, David Koechner, Halston Sage, Cloris Leachman, Niki Koss, Hiram A. Murray, Lukas Gage, Drew Droege, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Blake Anderson, and Elle Evans. Rated R.
