MOVIES

Opening

Friday 15

FIVE FEET APART Hey look, it’s another disease-of-the-week movie like they used to show on TV all the time. In Five Feet Apart, terminally ill teenagers meet and fall in love, but they can’t touch or they’ll die! Hmm. Let’s just say this kind of movie isn’t really my thing, and leave it at that.

WONDER PARK Animated movie about a woman who discovers her imaginary childhood amusement park is somehow, magically real-ish! Life lessons about not giving up on your dreams ensue.

Friday 22

US Writer/director Jordan Peele is quickly becoming one of my favourite thriller directors. His first feature, Get Out, was excellent, and this looks amazingly creepy and horrifying. In Us, a family is attacked by their dopplegangers. Side note: I’m cautiously excited for Peele’s new Twilight Zone TV series, which hopefully won’t just be remakes of classic episodes.

Friday 29

DUMBO I don’t get Disney’s obsession with remaking all their classic animated movies into live-action movies. To be honest the only one I’ve seen so far was The Jungle Book, and that was pretty entertaining but I can’t say I’ve been interested in any of the others — Maleficent, Cinderella and Beauty and The Beast. This year alone we have Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King. Disney is still an animation studio, right?

UNPLANNED Ugh. Speaking of crap, here’s a Christian anti-abortion movie. And speaking of anti-choice antics, did you read the news about 19-year-old Alabama specimen Ryan Magers? He’s suing a health clinic for ending the six-week pregnancy of the 16-year-old he allegedly pressured into sex, and somehow a judge has given him the right to litigate on behalf of the terminated embryo (not even a fetus). Just thought that ought to be pointed out.

Cineplex Flashback Film Series

SPACEBALLS It’s the classic Star Wars spoof from director Mel Brooks (March 15, 19, 22 and 26).
