Movies Mix with Memorial Day

A long, memorable weekend will soon be upon us, with a visit to our local movie theaters, where legends are naturally born, sure to be on our To Do List.

How much fun will our Booksmart almost graduates be having? Will they reach the head of the class or settle for a lowly box-office local?
Following the theory that stars burn their brightest before they’re gone, what can we expect to be going on courtesy of that sinister child creating Brightburn? Will he follow his ever-present darkness into the cinematic light, where The Tomorrow Man is searching for love in the present? Walking along on A Dog’s Journey, however, might provide them both with a bit of much-need PG perspective.

Living happily in the present, profitable moment, Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, perceptive observer that he is, is constantly on watch, checking out his competition while solving whatever blockbuster-worthy case crosses his path. Avengers: Endgame, also keen competitors, are firmly on guard and determined to remain in the game and scope out the competition all while keeping the movie world safe. A tall order, but luckily, a huge film.
