Even though the last Tom Cruise movie (The Mummy) was boring, I still want to watch American Made. It looks like he is having so much fun with the role and the reviews are good. I’m not sure why Flatliners needed a remake. I remember the Kiefer Sutherland-Julia Roberts-Kevin Bacon movie being trashy when it came out, but I guess the kids these days wouldn’t remember that one so might as well make it again. Netflix is releasing Our Souls at Night this Friday where Robert Redford and Jane Fonda reunite for their third movie together. Til Death Do Us Part has interesting elements with the controlling, abusive relationship, but looks like it turns into a damsel-in-distress story where Taye Diggs has to save the day. I’d much rather the woman save herself.
In limited release:
Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House seems very timely, but critics are saying that All the President’s Men told the story much better.
Lucky is a nice last movie from the very recently departed Harry Dean Stanton.
Super Dark Times looks to be very dark and creepy.
Literally, Right Before Aaron has all the standard romantic comedy tropes but doesn’t do anything different with them.
