Woof. We’re definitely in the doldrums to start off the month of September folks… there’s a decent amount of limited release films this week and let me tell yah, not a lot of winners. I think, and I’m no expert, but I genuinely believe that you should just miss the week at the theater, even the Close Encounters of the Third Kind Re-release.

Much like their cinematic counterparts, the Marvel produced Netflix shows have been barreling towards a shared universe since their inception. Beginning with Daredevil in April of 2015, the collective has seen five total seasons of TV dedicated to the four members of the Defenders, with the latest being our introduction to Iron Fist in March of this year. While the majority of the universe has garnered commercial and critical praise, with the first season of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage all being seen as well made shows, a lot of what plagued the much maligned Iron Fist, along with the major pitfalls of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), crept into the eight part Defenders mini series, keeping it from being the coup viewers, and Marvel alike, were hoping it would be.
August just refuses to quit! If it wasn’t for knowing how many days there are in a calendar month, I’d be convinced that August isn’t ever going to end. Luckily, there’s a few interesting movies out this week, worthy of a trip to the theaters, unless the impending eclipse has you convinced the end is nigh.
First week at the theaters in August and boy oh boy, have the reviews for The Dark Tower been ruff. Talk about the dog days of summer, amiright? Also, I get kidnapped in a movie appropriately named Kidnap. Don’t really have a Dad joke for that one. Commence!
Although the unofficial start of the summer blockbuster movie season kicked of with the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, June hits us with franchise installments and tent-pole films, week after week. And what better way to start off the month of June than with Captain Underpants and a Latino remake of the 3 Idiots.
Sadly, there’s no holiday to make fun of, or change in season to reference for this week at the movies. Happily, I’m still very pleased about having seen Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 a hand full of times since it came out. On everything that’s coming out this week however, I’m aggressively neutral.
Hey! It’s Cinco De Mayo! The American tradition of celebrating appropriation of yet another people’s day of celebration as an excuse to get beyond wasted. Looking at you, anyone who has a Kiss Me I’m Irish shirt. So get ready to sneak some beers into Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 because that’s really the only thing worth seeing that’s out this week.
