Audiences were screaming Don’t Breathe to their seatmates at movie theaters this weekend, as horror invaded their sensitive hearts (while inhibiting their breathing abilities). The always-insensitive Suicide Squad maintained the death wish they extended to their competition as they continued to survive the end-of-summer crowd. Kubo and the Two Strings were weaving a sweet thread around gentle hearts, giving double meaning to family values while the eat-or-be-eaten guests at the Sausage Party were still well represented (if not well fed). Back for more, Mechanic: Resurrection played a part in reviving an assassin while revitalizing our movie-going experience.
It was a stimulating weekend at the movies, with horror and horrible characters going head-to-head, family front and center, with animation and assassins in an odd competition, all culminating in one cool party!
