Between movie theaters, VOD, Redbox, Netflix and the rest of the streaming platforms, a lot of content dropped this week. I went through and found some of the best options you can watch this weekend.
Censor is one of those movies you need to see in theaters. The technical aspects of the film were remarkable and it’s full of blood, guts and gore. If you’re into that, go see it at our beloved Belcourt this weekend and you can see my full review from Sundance Film Festival here.
A League of Their Own
“There’s no crying in baseball!” If you know the origin of that line, you probably love this classic movie as much as the rest of us. It’s playing on the big screen at the Franklin Theatre and it’s a great walk down memory lane.
In The Heights
In the Heights is now in theaters and critics are agreeing that this is one of the best movies of 2021 so far. Jon M. Chu truly brought Lin-Manuel Miranda’s stage play to life on the big screen. The songs, dance numbers and the heartwarming story will remain crowd pleasers for years to come.
Queen Bees is a film set at the Pine Grove Senior Community. The senior center is cutthroat with widows staking their claim on their male counterparts and battling it out in ruthless bridge games. Take the movie Mean Girls and put it in a retirement home and that’s Queen Bees. Check out my interview with stars of the film, Loretta Devine and Ann-Margret, here. It’s also available on demand.
IMDB: “When a teen in rural India discovers a life-changing passion for skateboarding, she faces a rough road as she follows her dream to compete.”
City of Lies
Who Shot Biggie? The question we’ve been asking for years comes to the big screen in City of Lies. Academy Award winners Johnny Depp and Forrest Whitaker play detectives in charge of investigating and tracking down Biggie’s murderer in this crime drama.
