After sitting down for years Because of your star Josh Boone’s horror-like take on the X-Men finally sneaked into the theater in August.Technically yet Although it’s a theater, the movie wasn’t the savior that Multiplex wanted Tenet Would; so far, the United States has only earned $ 23 million. For many New Mutants I was destined to watch a home video — and now it’s time to entertain that morbid curiosity. From our review:

Character New Mutants Pushed into a plot like Stephen King wrote On the cuckoo’s nestAlthough I don’t specifically claim one thing. Superhero horror films move from scary scenes to teenage films with an attitude and a cool atmosphere, but they don’t fully embody or influence either direction.

A rethink of Charles Dickens’ novel by Veep creator Armando Iannucci, this work casts Dev Patel as an adventurous David. The cast is piled up, with Hugh Laurie, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Peter Capaldi, Daisy May Cooper and Benedict Wong all popping up, and Ianucci has an adaptive light at his feet. From Vulture Review:

Personal history of the bottom writer It doesn’t make much fun of its source material because it enjoys it […] It ’s a sweeter and gentler event than Ian Nucci ’s last movie, 2017. Stalin’s death — A terribly dark comedy that portrays the power struggle of the Central Commission as a mundane but murderous dysfunctional workplace.But elastic buoyancy is running Personal history of the bottom writer It proves to be irresistible by the end of the journey. In addition to benefiting from kindness, the protagonist overcomes difficulties and cruelty, yet he does not lose his ability to be fascinated by people.

Latest movie from Martha Mercy May Marlene Director Sean Durkin is a nasty family drama about the poisoning of greed. It’s also a perfect showcase for Jude Law and Carrie Coon. They get out of their depths and fight like giants when they are in debt. From a review:

nest It’s not a haunted house movie in itself, but it does take advantage of the visual metaphors of this genre. I often feel that something ominous is lurking in every corner.But the most ominous element in Nest- And most frightening is the havoc of blind ambitions when tied to a sense of injured qualifications.That’s the hovering gargoyle Around Rory (Jude Law), a hugely successful entrepreneur returning his American family to his native England for the work he wants to do. His wife, Alison (Carrie Coon), a trainer, hesitates to leave the United States, but she agrees. And his stepdaughter Samantha (Ounarocchi) and son Ben (Charlie Shotwell) are well adapted to their new life. They moved around a lot. They know the drill.

To Jiu-jitsu, Nicolas Cage basically plays Raiden Mortal Kombat As a man from Big LebowskiGuide a band of fighters when they take on the aliens who want to kick their ass. Tony Joe, Frank Grillo and Alan Mussy are all here. Is it the best movie ever? close. From our review:

Once it’s up and running, it doesn’t feel like a waste of viewer time. As the movie progresses, human enemies of alien fighters fall to the side of the road as they take on extraterrestrial murder machines.The setup owes much to the human vs. alien classic Predator, And sometimes, doing so, our heroes will be able to camouflage themselves in the middle of the forest. But originality doesn’t really matter. Cageless comedy attempts have been unsuccessful, but thanks to Logothetis’ solid and no-frills approach, the action remains exciting.

Angelina Jolie and David Eurowo lead the cast Egyptian prince And Brave The first live-action film directed by Brenda Chapman. Rethinking and intertwining the story of Peter Pan and Alice bound to Wonderland. The result is like a reference game when we enter the review.

Come away From the crocodile eating Captain Hook’s hand to the Red Queen’s “Brow your head!”, Fill the world of Peter and Alice with a clear origin. Catchphrase. With so many blatant viewer nudges, it starts to feel more like a farce than a reference. By the time Peter and Alice encounter a goofy haberdashery ( wireClarke Peters), spitting out Mad Hatter’s riddles and familiar lines, going out of the movie, what’s really real in this story, and the whimsical and mysterious attempts of the movie to survive the fuzzy execution It’s hard to wonder if you can.
