MOVIES

Happy 2019! Here’s a look at everything opening in the next few weeks. A lot of it looks like crap but some of it’s great. Same as it ever was! /Shane Hnetka

Opening

Friday 4

ELI Hollywood starts every new year by sacrificing a bad horror movie to the motion picture gods to ensure a good year at the box office. This year’s offering is Eli, which is so bad I can’t even find its trailer online. Will it even be released? If not, there’s another flick ready to take its place on the bloody altar…

ESCAPE ROOM This dumb-looking thriller about a group of idiots trapped in an evil escape room should appease the Box Office Gods if Eli is a no-show.

Friday 11

A DOG’S WAY HOME I saw Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and it was brilliant. Unfortunately there were a couple of lame movie trailers before it, including a preview for this turkey. The trailer shows the film from beginning to end. It’s like watching the entire movie in a couple of minutes. On the bright side this means no one has to endure the actual film.

REPLICAS Keanu Reeves works to clone his family after an accident in this really crappy-looking sci-fi movie.

THE UPSIDE A crappy and completely pointless remake of the brilliant French film Les Intouchables. Wow! What a crappy week for new movies! Hopefully some award-nominated films will get wider releases so we have something to see in theatres.

Friday 18

GLASS He was on a losing streak for a long time but M. Night Shyamalan’s last couple of films have been decent. One of them, Split, was really entertaining, even before its awesome twist ending revealed it was set in the same universe as Shyamalan’s excellent 2000 superhero movie Unbreakable — arguably, his best movie. Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson reprise their Unbreakable roles as the indestructible David Dunn and sinister Elijah Price as James McAvoy’s Split character joins the fun. Looks pretty good! Fingers crossed.
