We’ve got a little of everything this weekend, with a new Men in Black in theaters, returning shows on Netflix, and a drama I’m cautiously optimistic about (Beats–looks good, right?)
Say My Name is a Welsh comedy. Two strangers find themselves embroiled in a robbery and a wild night when their tryst is interrupted.
Back to the Fatherland is a documentary. Young Israelis choose to leave their country for Austria and Germany.
Head Count is a horror film. A group of young people on a trip to Joshua Tree when a cute stranger summons a creature via a chant he found online. You dummy.
Hampstead is a 2017 British film starring Diane Keaton, Brendan Gleeson, James Norton, Lesley Manville, Jason Watkins and Simon Callow. It’s based on the true story of a man who successfully argued that he owned a half acre of Hampstead Heath.
American Woman is a drama. Before we continue: “from the producer of Manchester By the Sea is a RED FLAG.” Sienna Miller is a flawed woman seeking her missing teenager daughter. So all of the worst Oscar-nominated films rolled into one.
5B is a documentary about Ward 5B, a nurse-built wing that cared for HIV patients at San Francisco General Hospital.
Shaft …Remember the 2000 film Shaft? There’s a sequel, and it has a similar premise to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Men in Black: International is a continuation of the Men In Black franchise with Tessa Thompson playing Tommy Lee Jones’s role (THE straight-laced agent) and Chris Hemsworth as Will Smith (the radical agent). Thompson is new though, is sent to a UK branch, and soon finds herself traveling the world. At least the film has Emma Thompson!
Being Frank is a dumb ass comedy starring Jim Gaffigan as a man who is 1) an overbearing father and 2) juggling two families.
The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a drama inspired by the life of the star, Jimmie Fails. Fails attempts to reclaim and restore a Victorian home, built by his grandfather, in San Francisco.
