Summer is really heating up, as hot new contenders enter the movie arena, guaranteeing merrymaking that only the movie kingdom can accomplish.
The Sausage Party, while confusing for its guests, is sure to offer an odd but amusing film fare (as long as you’re not on the menu). Pete’s Dragon, always hungry for colorful stories, promises to tell the tallest of family-friendly tales (unlike the aforementioned food festivities). Then there’s the musically-challenged Florence Foster Jenkins. What she lacks in talent she most certainly makes up for in, umm, enthusiasm. Does she have what it takes to squash those enthusiastic but talentless members of the critically panned Suicide Squad? Can Meryl take down that mad machine? With this much competition, can Jason Bourne save himself from all that killer entertainment? Is he too tame in comparison to a squad with a weird death wish?
As an entertaining summer sails on, will a Star Trek Beyond your typical blockbuster experience be achieved before an award-worthy autumn? Trekking through their own child-free zone, can those Bad Moms, who aren’t winning any awards, ever turn good? Perhaps we need to take the good with the bad and look for the answers courtesy of The Secret Life of Pets, where our once-mute friends have corned the market on “intellectual” conversation.
Which of our oddly intellectual characters will you be spending time with this weekend?
