What You Should See

So you’ve got two big choices in new movies this weekend. One’s a movie starring farting corpses… and the other one’s Swiss Army Man (that’s a bit of Scottish humour there). But seriously, I’m going to recommend both Ghostbusters and Swiss Army Man because both movies are easy to pre-judge and both have the potential to delight. It’s called giving things a chance, it’s what people do when they’re not being a d*ck.

On a slightly odd note, Tale of Tales, another movie I’d recommend, is opening at the Garneau, but if you’re reading this and haven’t seen it, that means you already missed its Thursday (i.e., yesterday) opening and it’s not showing again until Monday. So, not a weekend release, but it is another new release for us here in Edmonton.

Ultimately, I really only have one thing I’m going to ask of you this weekend, and that’s if you’re going to the theatre to see a movie, wait until after the movie’s done to see what Pokemon you can catch there.
