What You Should See
It’s Oscars weekend! The biggest celebration of the year in movies! Which, for most of you, probably means nothing…! But if you’re one of those weird people who cares about things then you might want to check out Metro Cinema this Sunday for a live Oscar viewing with games and trivia during commercial breaks. It’s a great way to get out there and… y’know, maybe not be such a shut in all the time.
Meanwhile, in new release news, it’s a weekend with a lot of heart as How to Train Your Dragon: The New World, the last of the animated Dragon trilogy, and Fighting with My Family, on real-life wrestler Paige’s ascendancy to WWE superstardom. Both really have family at their heart, both are accessible and have far more stuff on the inside than they need to succeed, and, weirdly, both are scoring really well with critics, so I’d recommend either or both.
Also opening this weekend are Arctic, a tale of survival in the bitterest of circumstances, and Lords of Chaos, on the Black Metal scene of the ‘80s, so if your tastes are leaning more towards the nihilistic, then both of those look like pretty good choices too.
