Opening this Weekend
Box Office Predictions
- The Curse of La Llorona
What You Should See
… Oh, I’m sorry, were you trying to say something not related to Avengers: Endgame? Look, I hate to be rude, but I just don’t have time for anything not Avengers-related right now.”
I think something like the above is a pretty poor attitude to have and very unfair to the plethora of new releases this weekend, some of which I’m going to recommend relatively highly, but if that’s the way you feel I definitely wouldn’t judge you harshly. I think we’re all dying for next Friday to come and for us to finally be living in a post-Avengers: Endgame world, because however that movie is, good movie (almost definitely) or bad (highly unlikely, it’s going to change the world.
Anyway, the big movies opening this weekend are the horror movie The Curse of La Llorona, the racially tense drama The Best of Enemies, the DisneyNature quasi-documentary Penguins, the faith-based Breakthrough, and the pop-music drama Teen Spirit, and the only one I’ll recommend is Teen Spirit, the only one I’d understand you wanting to see even if I don’t really care about it is Penguins, and I’m going to come down violently against Breakthrough.
Smaller screen new movie viewings this weekend include the animal drama Mia and the White Lion, the Japanese animated Penguin Highway, aboriginal coming-of-age movie The Grizzlies, limited screenings of a stage play of Noah, the Indian romance drama Sir, and the divorce/nuns/weed documentary Breaking Habits, and all but Mia and the White Lion and Noah look pretty good, Penguin Highway and Sir in particular.
Oh, and there’s some CatVideoFest thing you can go to if you somehow love both cats and the idea of watching YouTube cat videos with other people around instead of just staying home and doing/loving nothing.
Oh, and… Happy Easter? Is that a thing people actually celebrate? Anyway, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to get back to speculating on who’s going to die and who’s staying dead in Avengers: Endgame.
