What You Should See
Y’know for all the big movies opening this weekend — Hotel Transylvania 2, The Intern, Everest opening to non-IMAX theatres — I would probably decide against all of them and go see The Wolfpack at the Garneau. It really does look more interesting than anything else opening.
Hotel Transylvania 2 will play to the kids, but I wouldn’t recommend it for adults; The Intern looks very take it or leave it and not the kind of movie anyone has to see; Everest opening wider will expand its audience, but it’s a movie better suited for IMAX viewing, and for IMAX movies I’d rather just wait for The Walk; The Green Inferno looks horrific for horror’s sake (which just isn’t my thing); and Pawn Sacrifice… you know — Tobey Maguire. But at least Pawn Sacrifice did eventually open here in Edmonton, unlike some recent movies <cough> Sleeping With Other People </cough>.
