Opening This Weekend: June 5th

OpeningJune5
Summer is officially here! That means blockbusters on remakes on more blockbusters – but hey, I ain’t complaining! With Jurassic World just around the corner, and Entourage I will basically be living in the past (or at my local theater).

So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.

Insidious: Chapter 3

insidious33

Stars: Dermot Mulroney, Stefanie Scott, Angus Sampson

Directed By: Leigh Wannell

Synopsis: Serving as a prequel to the original film, Chapter 3 follows the origins of Elise Rainier (Vera Famiga in earlier films) as she reluctantly becomes a conduit for evil spirits looking to do harm.

Our Two Cents: The sequel was remarkably tolerable (as far as horror sequels go), so they could push for a third and I wouldn’t be offended.

Spy

Stars: Melissa McCarthy, Jason Statham, Rose Byrne, Miranda Hart, Bobby Cannavale, and Jude Law.

Directed By: Paul Feig

Synopsis: When a top agent goes missing and the identities of the other agents are compromised, the only person left who can save the CIA is the unassuming Susan, who is forced to go deep undercover.

Our Two Cents: Please. Stop.

Love & Mercy

Stars: John Cusack, Paul Dano, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Giamatti

Directed By: Bill Pohlad

Synopsis: The films shows two periods in young Brian Wilson (of the Beach Boys fame) from his early success and the dormancy of his mental illness, to the later periods in his life when he is without all hope. It is the arrival of Melinda, his second wife, that he finally finds refuge.

Our Two Cents: Paul Dano might just be at his very best in this.

The Nightmare

Stars: n/a

Directed By: Rodney Ascher

Synopsis: The documentary follows the phenomenon of sleep paralysis, named after the famous painting by Henry Fuseli. Experiencers feel trapped by fear as they dream, and it is thought to have lasting health effects.

Our Two Cents: An accessible documentary has never been made about this topic, and it could prove revolutionary for the disorder.

Entourage

Stars: Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara, Jeremy Piven

Directed By: Doug Ellin

Synopsis: The gang reunites as Ari becomes the head of a studio, prompting Vinny to demand he direct the first picture. Naturally, disaster ensues.

Our Two Cents: The TV series was always hysterical yet witty, flamboyant yet engaging. Here’s hoping the film is the same.

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence

5ba67ea2eca4f08c2186a10741fdccd8

Stars: Nisse Vestblom, Holger Andersson

Directed By: Roy Andersson

Our Two Cents: This won the Golden Lion. End of.
