Spring Movies: Opening March 17, 2017

I have been watching the Disney live action remakes so I am guessing I will eventually see Beauty and the Beast. I have never seen the original animated movie though. Maybe I’ll make it a double feature. I’m unsure why there is a sequel to Trainspotting, but I do love that movie and since it has the same cast and director, I want to watch it. The Belko Experiment looks crazy tense. Song to Song is not getting good reviews and not sure if there is much of a plot, but the cast is excellent (Michael Fassbender and Ryan Gosling!) and it is about music so I’m in. Betting on Zero talks about companies that call themselves Multi-Level Marketing but it is another term for pyramid scheme. Franz could be good but it doesn’t hold much interest for me. Atomica looks like it should be a movie on the Scyfy channel and not something released into theaters. I feel like I have seen that plot so many times before.
