KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE was the golden child at the box office this weekend, naturally running circles around the competition. Circling around their own golden globe, THE LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE put the animated pieces together nicely. Always fitting in, IT still possessed that quantifiable “it” factor (which somehow involved keeping the clown-free competition on their storytelling toes). Our AMERICAN ASSASSIN was once again lethal, making MOTHER! feel right at home.
It was an entertainingly golden weekend at the movies, with a king naturally ruling the kingdom. Animation had a cushy spot as did those horrifying clowns (there’s just no getting rid of them!) and one odd mother figure but fortunately, an assassin made us feel safe at the end of our movie day!
Which of our safe, satisfying tales made you feel right at home?
