Weekend Box Office: February 3, 2017

The Lure is a Polish horror musical about two mermaid sisters abducted in Warsaw. One hungers for the taste of human flesh while another falls in love.

Oklahoma City is a documentary about the Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing, Timothy McVeigh, and the alt-right nutters. Vanity Fair calls it “riveting”. I want to see it even thought the “alt-right” makes me puke. (Maybe follow this with Fash Bash on Saturday?)

This Is Everything is a documentary about Internet star Gigi Gorgeous, who debuted as Greg, and came out and transitioned to Gigi.

I am Not Your Negro is a documentary exploring the history of racism in America. It is based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript Remember This House and narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, and features Baldwin’s memories of Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. This film is nominated for an Academy Award.

Wheeler is about a man from Texas who tries to break into country music in Nashville. …Except it’s Stephen Dorff in makeup.

The Grace of Jake is a “shallow” film about an ex-con finding faith and redemption. You know it’s garbage. I don’t know, maybe the born-agains can see I Am Not Your NegroMoonlightHidden Figures, or Oklahoma City this weekend instead. I bet This Is Everything is filled with compassion!

Don’t Knock Twice is a horror film with an urban legend about a witch, starring an appropriately-attired teenager and Katee Sackhoff.

Eloise is a horror film about four people (Eliza Dushku, you know better!) who sneak into an abandoned asylum to get a death certificate.

The Space Between Us is about a teenager living on Mars who meets a girl online who lives in Tulsa. That’s why they told Ender it was a game.

War on Everyone is a movie about the Trump administration.

Journey to the West: The Demons Strike Back is a Journey to the West sequel. See, 2017 isn’t so bad.

Youth in Oregon is an independent comedy about a man (Billy Crudup_ who drives his ailing father (Frank Langella) to Oregon to be euthanized.

Same Kind of Different as Me “is the story of an international art dealer Ron Hall who must befriend a dangerous homeless man in order to save his struggling marriage to his wife, a woman whose dreams will lead all three of them on the most remarkable journey of their lives.” Renée Zellweger came back to movies for this bullshit?

Rings updates The Ring with the Internet. Because that’s what we all needed.
