MIDNIGHT SUN Thanks to an unpleasant genetic condition, Belle Thorne can’t go out into the sunlight. For some reason, she hides this fact from her new boyfriend, Patrick “guess who my dad is” Schwarzenegger. Rob Riggle also stars. Midnight Sun is a remake of the 2006 Japanese film of the same name that I didn’t see but assume is better.

PACIFIC RIM 2 Why, it’s Power Rangers 2! Wait, wait, wait. Hmm. I guess this is actually a sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, about giant robots fighting giant kaiju monsters,. Sadly del Toro has nothing to do with this sequel because he’s been busy winning Oscars for his sexy Creature From The Black Lagoon fan-fic.

PAUL, APOSTLE OF CHRIST A police officer who testified against his own unit faces the consequences in this sequel to the obscure 2014 independent buddy-cop flick Paulie and the Jeez.

READY PLAYER ONE Steven Spielberg directs this big-budget extravaganza based on the best-selling novel I bought last year but still haven’t read. What? I keep finding better things to read. In the future, where somehow all the poor people can afford to surf a web-like virtual reality called the OASIS, our hero searches for an easter egg so he can inherit billions of dollars and save the OASIS from a mega-evil corporation. From Back To The Future’s DeLorean to Harley Quinn to Freddy Kruger and even Gandalf, there haven’t been this many licensed properties in the same movie since Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

GOD’S NOT DEAD: A LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS This third chapter in the God’s Not Dead film saga sees some of the original cast return. I don’t know what these movies are about and I really don’t care.

7:00 POROROCA For the next three nights the Regina Public Library Film Theatre presents the Festival of New Romanian Films. First up is this 2017 movie about a family that’s torn apart when a father loses his young daughter in the park. The title “Pororoca” is a reference to an Amazonian tidal phenomenon of four-metre high waves that travel 800 kilometres inland. The movie sounds pretty interesting. It apparently has an 18-minute-long single-take shot. Cool.

9:15 MORGEN Nelu, a Romanian man, lives in a farmhouse with his wife Florica. One day while fishing, Nelu meets an illegal immigrant fleeing Turkish border guards, and strikes up an unlikely friendship. But what about his roof? Nelu kind of wants it fixed.

Tuesday 27

7:00 DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Talkies! This time host and heckler-in-chief Jayden Pfeifer picked a real stinker. This failed attempt to bring the popular role-playing game to the big screen was a disaster for all involved but mostly for Jeremy Irons, whose insane performance literally caused tumours to grow in lab mice forced to watch this. Terrible, terrible movie. Great choice by Pfeifer.

Saint Patrick’s Day is Saturday, March 17 and since live music is at least as Irish as whiskey poisoning, you should go find some.

And no, I don’t get paid anything for the product placement but if the Writers Tears corporation wants to send me cheques I’ll happily cash ‘em (free whiskey is also welcome).
