So imagine if Deep Blue Sea, Jaws, and Jurassic Park had a baby and that baby grew to be a Megalodon, then you might have something like Jason Statham’s next movie, The Meg. Stupid name, and it definitely doesn’t look like what I’d call a “good” movie, but f*ck me if your heart doesn’t get to racing at about the 22 second mark. Just good dumb fun. Speaking of dumb fun…Mr. Bean, also occasionally known as Rowan Atkinson, reprises his role as Johnny English once again. Not sure who keeps asking for these, but I’d like to thank them because very few people do “dumb”, slapstick comedy as well as he does. The Cleanse looks like a surprisingly funny film that oozes of those quirky, slightly-off vibes that Tim Burton has turned into classics. Bizarre in all the right ways, it looks it might be one of those rare diamonds in the rough. Serious question…is there any movie James Franco won’t show up in? Future Worldlooks like the Walmart Mad Max, but throw in some weird prophecies involving androids and a post-apocalyptic Snoop Dogg and you might just get me to watch it. Just don’t expect me to tell anyone I did.
Leave it to A24 to take your typical, over done, teen summer flick and turn it into something I actually want to watch. Hot Summer Nightslooks like it has everything great from those classic teen summer romps and more as things quickly spiral out of control. Lastly, we got a new look at the Sandra Bullock led, all-female Ocean’s spinoff, Ocean’s 8. I can hear all of the underrepresented males complaining now, but outside of the first Ocean’s, it hasn’t been a franchise that’s knocked it out of the park every go around so I’m all for something new.
