Opening

Friday 13

BORG VS. MCENROE When I last wrote about this movie I mentioned that it was weird that the movie posters said “Borg vs. McEnroe” but IMDb listed it as just “Borg McEnroe”. Well, that’s been fixed and everyone is calling it  Borg vs. McEnroe. Thank goodness.

RAMPAGE Dwayne Johnson’s best buddy, a white gorilla, along with a crocodile and a wolf, get hit by strange embiggening rays that cause the animals to grow to enormous size and embark on a city-destroying, yes, yes, rampage. Based on the popular arcade game from a time before half our readers were born. In a hilarious twist, retired video game movie auteur Uwe Boll threatened to sue Warner Bros. for copyright infringement because he made three movies with that title: Rampage, Rampage: Capital Punishment and Rampage: President Down. The game is from 1986 and Boll directed the first flick in 2009, and somehow they’ve ripped him off? Good one, Uwe Boll! (Weirdly enough, Boll’s first Rampage is probably his best movie).

SGT. STUBBY: AN AMERICAN The true story of a dog that’s brought over from the U.S. as a mascot and ends up in the WWI trenches warning troops of mustard gas and finding wounded soldiers. Animated, and looks like it might be good.

TRUTH OR DARE This really dumb-looking horror movie is about a group of people playing truth or dare who discover that, oh no, the game is controlled by a mysterious, sinister force out to gruesomely kill them. “If you don’t tell the truth, you die! If you don’t do the dare, you die!” complain the characters. Don’t sinister forces realize it’s only a game?

I FEEL PRETTY  Amy Schumer stars in this comedy about a woman who has serious self-esteem and body-image issues. The jokes begin after she hits her head and becomes convinced she’s beautiful. Doesn’t sound mean-spirited and tacky at all!

SUPER TROOPERS 2 This crowd-funded and very belated sequel to Broken Lizard’s 2001 cult comedy has the cops face off against a small Quebec community that’s been absorbed into the United States. Sounds more terrifying than funny.

TRAFFIK Paula Patton and Omar Epps star as a couple who go for a stay in the country and end up fighting an evil biker gang. Hmm. This sounds familiar. But what other movie would be about an innocent couple attacked in the isolated country? Straw Dogs kind of fits the bill. So does Death Weekend. Heck, even Mad Max’s family was terrorized by a gang in the woods. And people think city life is dangerous? Yeah, right. Don’t go into the forest, people.

Friday 27

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Here we are. After 10 years and 19 movies it’s the big, big epic everyone has been waiting for. The titanic throw-down between all the heroes and big, bad Thanos is finally going to happen in a story only Marvel could tell. Who will live? Who will die? Will Thanos collect all the Infinity MacGuffins, er, stones? And what can a man with a bow and arrow do in a sprawling, cosmic fight? There might be a reason Hawkeye isn’t on the movie posters.

9:00 THE LITTLE GIRL WHO WAS TOO FOND OF MATCHES This gorgeous-looking and unsettling-sounding black and white film is about a young woman named Alice who has been raised, along with her brother, by her demented father to believe she’s a boy. After his death, events spiral into increasingly disturbing and dismember-y territory.

Saturday 14

7:00 ADVENTURES IN PUBLIC SCHOOL A socially awkward homeschooled teen flunks his way into public school to meet a girl.

7:00 GOOBY Talkies is back with another terrible, terrible, terrible movie. This one is so bad I’d never even heard of it. The Internet tells me it’s a Canadian fantasy/drama about a boy and his imaginary teddy-bear monster. The trailer is crappy with a few moments of unintentional nightmare fuel. Stars nobody, along with Robby Coltrane’s voice and Eugene Levy’s eyebrows. Let the Pfeiferian skewering begin!

Wednesday 25

7:00 DISRUPTION This doc addresses the big-picture problems caused by climate change, an actual, real thing that — and the movie isn’t about this, but it was in the news lately — a third of Canadians apparently don’t believe in. See cinemapolitica.org/regina.

AMAZON ADVENTURE This documentary brings to life Henry Bates 1850 expedition to the Amazon. With the weather being as cold as it has been lately, a trip to the warm Amazon might not be a bad thing. Failing that, a doc about someplace warm sounds great to me.

DREAM BIG: ENGINEERING OUR WORLD This documentary looks at the wonderful world of engineering and all the awesome things it produces.

PANDAS: THE JOURNEY HOME Pandas, nature’s extinction-threatened clowns, are the focus of this documentary. But you could probably guess that from the title.
