What You Should See
Every one of this week’s major releases provokes an immediate, one-word gut reaction from me, and I thought I’d share those unfiltered reactions with you here. Keanu? Mmm. Mother’s Day? Buh. Ratchet & Clank? Sneh. For those of you who might not consider those to be words, I have to say… you and I run in very different circles.
From the minds of Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, Keanu is probably the biggest release of the week, and for a guy who’s never really been impressed by their show and who doesn’t particularly care about cats, it’s hard to understand why some people are so excited about it, but whatevs. Ratchet & Clank is a non-event of a movie, and I’m sure that this time next year (or even a few weeks from now) we’ll all have to be reminded that that was a movie if it somehow comes up in conversation. But it won’t. And as for Mother’s Day? The only reason I won’t recommend burning it with fire is that it reminded me that Mother’s Day is coming up, and I am thankful for that bit of extra time to think of a Mother’s Day gift.
Now if we’re talking about movies to actually go and see? Green Room.
