Ready for a chariot ride leading to the most amazing stars? Ben-Hur sure is, although he’s mighty steamed about that whole false treason accusation thingy. Know who else is madder than Moses? Well, that would be the Suicide Squad, who did not appreciate those tepid reviews or the worthy competition nipping at their heels looking to cash in on their hefty box-office haul. Does anyone wanna make those guys angry? Then there’s the confused guest attending the Sausage Party, who really didn’t appreciate being a part of the menu. Too bad they didn’t read that all-important fine print, which clearly stated they would be eaten as part of the entertainment. Next up, new-in-town War Dogs certainly have their conflicts to contend with. Will they win that war? Tuning into the war within his damaged psyche Jason Bourne continues reconciling his sordid past with his equally-sordid presence. Will it bring him peace, at least until his next action-packed go around?
What exactly is going on around Pete’s Dragon? Will an orphan’s best friend provide a family-friendly tale sure to satisfy movie lovers of all ages? Might those Bad Moms offer the best medicine for the end-of-summer-blockbusters blues? Maybe Kubo and the Two Strings will peacefully tie it all together (after dealing with that unfortunate vengeful apparition).
Revenge may have been on many (too many, really) of our complicated characters’ minds, but redemption fortunately plays an ultimate part in some of their sorted, storied journeys.
