What You Should See

This should be Fantastic Four’s weekend, but the verbal on it right now sounds so bad that it’s pretty hard to recommend on any level. Review will be up next weekend. As of now, I’m still going to see it because I like the director and the cast, but it’s not looking good. Ricki and the Flash looks like a decent choice for the 45+ crowd. Dark Places is looking like a huge step down from the last Gillian Flynn movie (Gone Girl); Shaun the Sheep looks interesting for parents and children (it’s entirely dialogue-free); and even though it doesn’t look like much, people are saying good things about The Gift, so good for Jason Bateman (finally!).

You could also do yourself a favour and go see last weekend’s Mission: Impossible ­ Rogue Nation instead or watch Ant-Man again. If all else fails, there’s always Dragon Ball (this weekend only), or you could do like I keep meaning to and finally go see Amy.
