What You Should See

So happy Friday the 13th everybody!  And what a lucky Friday the 13th this is!  It’s a rare thing we have this weekend in new movies, one where all five of the new releases looks like at least a decent choice, so I feel it’s important we take this time to give this weekend the recognition it’s due.  So let’s have a moment of silence …

… There we go, that’s exactly one moment.

Now if you asked me what I actually want to see, I’d like to see The Foreigner but it’ll probably be a while before I actually see it (almost certainly not while it’s still theatres), I would definitely see Happy Death Day if I was in the mood (but I’m not and probably won’t), and I’d give The Limehouse Golem a shot too if I was picking up what that trailer’s putting down.  But I’ll probably end up seeing Professor Marston & the Wonder Women, because it doesn’t look like a lot of the other movies out there right now.

I do also want to give some special attention to the celebration of cinema that is 78/52, a study of Hitchcock’s most classic work.  It’s playing at Metro Cinema just for this weekend, and if you catch it on Friday you can follow it with a screening of Psycho itself right after.

Also, also… go see Blade Runner 2049 if you can.  It really needs it.  Our review should be up this weekend.
