What You Should See
Oh man, what a weekend! Even though each of the new movies this weekend targets a very different set of viewers, a part of me would recommend almost every one of them. Power Rangers, probably this weekend’s biggest new release, is proving to be divisive among critics, but that’s a hell of a lot better than the universal revulsion I was expecting, and enough of the critics I listen to say it’s worth a shot, so unless you know; Life is proving to be a more than adequate Alien-esque horror movie; Wilson, while not as well received as I had been expecting given the pedigree, looks like it has some very strong points; and actually, out of all of the major new releases, I might actually be most excited about The Girl with all the Gifts and it’s clever twist on zombie horror.
Oh Wait, CHiPs. I almost forgot about that. Yeah, don’t go see CHiPs, that would basically be the moviegoing equivalent of appointing Mike Pompeo to be the director of the CIA — I don’t absolutely hate it at first, but I’m sure I would if I found out more about it.
