Box Office Weekend: January 19, 2018

We have three movies released since Monday, now playing:

Surge of Power: Revenge of the Sequel is a satire about superhero films. It is probably not good.

Beuys is a documentary about Joseph Beuys, the experimental German artist.

The Leisure Seeker stars Helen Mirren and Donald Sutherland as a long-married couple traveling the U.S. in their mobile home. Sutherland’s character suffers from memory loss.

And out today we have…

The Road Movie is a documentary made from “found footage” from Russian dashboard cams. Easily the best use of Movie Pass this weekend.

Den of Thieves “is a gritty Los Angeles crime saga which follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Dept. and the state’s most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan a seemingly impossible heist.” I don’t know, it looks like crap to me.

Forever My Girl stars a piece of cardboard with pretty eyes as a famous country singer who considers giving it up to return to the family he unwittingly abandoned.

12 Strong is a war movie. It thinks it’s War Horse, but it isn’t.

Mary and The Witch’s Flower is an animated treat from Studio Ponoc. A little girl is transformed into a witch when she finds a mysterious flower.

The Final Year is a documentary about Obama’s last year in office.

Ridge Runners is a drama about human trafficking.

Small Town Crime stars John Hawkes as a former cop determined to solve the murder of a young woman.

And out on Netflix:

Katt Williams: Great America is out now.

Arango y Sanint: Ríase El Show…Lacks a trailer, just as the following two shows lack a trailer.

Tiempos de Guerra is a Spanish-language (“Times of War”) show getting a release; a trailer is unavailable.

Drug Lords, season one is getting a release. A trailer in unavailable at presstime.

Grace and Frankie, season four: I’ll be in my easy chair under an afghan until Monday if anyone needs me. The same can be said for the founding editors.

The Open House

Trolls: The Beat Goes On! proves there is no God.
