X-Men: Apocalypse began their memorable, mutant stay in our make-believe world by taking up the biggest space in the cinematic universe while arrogantly predicting the end is near for anyone in their apocalyptic path. Knowing her story will never truly end, Alice Through the Looking Glass had a clear view of her Disney-charmed audience despite the mutant detour. It didn’t take much to annoy last week’s champ, The Angry Birds Movie, whose stars were a bit disturbed by all that ruckus caused by their loud competitors. Captain America: Civil War showed gentlemanly restraint as he took a few steps down the box-office ladder (ultimately agreeing with Tony Stark that their latest “problems” have been quite profitable). The neighborhood had its share of revolting sights courtesy of Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (where sweet and sour Disney characters were clearly not invited).
Happily, everyone was invited to their local movie theater to look through the most appealing sights! Knowledgeable fans saw right through those mad mutants and angry animals to find the heart of the story, Alice looked as young and effervescent as ever, frat parties appeared both ugly and entertaining while Avengers remained eternal (despite that Apocalypse).
Which of our eternal tales brought a satisfying end to your long, holiday weekend?
