The summer movie season is in full swing, so Christopher Lloyd from The Film Yap reviews this week’s new batch of releases!
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword – Guy Ritchie, the guy who turned Sherlock Holmes into a whirligig of grimy alleys and knife fights, brings the same aesthetic to the Arthurian legends. It’s like the took the cut scenes from the video game version of the movie and made that the movie.
The Wall – Aaron Taylor-Johnson and John Cena star in this war drama about two American soldiers pinned down by an expert sniper, who taunts them over the radio.
Snatched – Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn play yin-and-yang daughter-and-mom who go on an exotic vacation together, with men, booze and some light kidnapping in the offing.
I Called Him Morgan – This documentary looks at the life and death of famed jazz trumpet player Lee Morgan, whose wife was implicated in his 1972 murder.
A Quiet Passion — Cynthia Nixon stars in this biopic of poet Emily Dickinson, from her days as a schoolgirl to her later life of obscurity and loneliness.
Fifty Shades Darker – The BDSM love story is back, and this time it’s like being the unwilling participant in a frisky whipping, and you’ve forgotten the safe word. Skip It.
