What You Should See
Am I the only one who didn’t grow up watching The Jungle Book? The latest in Disney’s live-action re-fashionings of animated classics, this new 2016 Jungle Book promises lush visuals, engaging storytelling, and nothing I could possibly ever care about. But it’s probably going to be popular, so there you go.
Other than that, it’s a surprisingly disappointing weekend for new movies, with all of Barbershop: The Next Cut, Criminal, and I Saw the Light looking like serious disappointments. What’s that you say? Barbershop is actually getting decent reviews? Oh that’s right, Kevin Hart isn’t in this one.
If you do go see a movie this weekend, do me a favour and make it Everybody Wants Some!! Playing at the Princess, it may not be the next Dazed and Confused, but it literally looks like it’s supposed to be, and that’s good enough for me.
