What You Should See
So this is week two of nothing big opening at the theatres before EVERYTHING BIG opens at the theatres, and if you were looking for not much reason to go to the theatres, well you found it.
Honestly, though, I would recommend seeing Anna and the Apocalypse (only at South Edmonton Common), the holiday zombie musical, and considering the upcoming onslaught, this is a pretty good time to go. And At Eternity’s Gate stars people I’ve heard of, so that’s something. But everything else opening, I mean, I’m not going to tell you not to go, but Ang Larawan is about “Two impoverished sisters [who] agonize over selling a painting, their father’s final masterpiece”, Singing to Myself concerns “A young deaf woman [giving] up on trying to connect until she meets a musician”, and Kooperman deals with “The owner of a struggling comic book store [having] to snap out of his fantasy world”. Those synopses aren’t reasons not to go to any of those movies, but… I’m not exactly sure how to end this sentence. You’ll know if you should see them or not.
Also, I thought I’d draw some brief attention to Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle opening on Netflix today. Now, listing the many, many movies opening on Netflix is the furthest thing I want to use this space for, but Mowgli’s a little different in that it was originally planned for theatrical release. So if you were wondering whatever happened to that other Jungle Book movie, here it is. Well, there it is.
Also also, Once Upon a Deadpool, a PG-13 retelling of the R-rated Deadpool 2 opens next Wednesday, the 12th. I hope it finds a reason to exist.
