When the last surviving dragons of ancient China begin to suffer an almost certain extinction, a young orphan takes up the cause and ventures across the country to save the last dragons.

Looking for an animated film for families this week, then this one can be a fitting option for you as it is PG and focuses on a tale of protecting those that need help.

The Fall Guy – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 89%

What starts off with Colt, played by Ryan Gosling, getting a chance to work with Jody, played by Emily Blunt, a director he had a prior relationship with. While things seem to move in the right direction, the film takes a hit when the actor, who Colt is the stuntman for, disappears. Now Jody asks Colt to hunt down the star, but uncovers a crazy and dangerous world that challenges the movie from ever finishing.

I love Ryan Gosling. This film looks pop corn fun, and action heavy. Ryan Gosling does an amazing job being loveable and keeping things light and fun. I can’t wait to see this one.

Jeanne Du Barry – Releasing in Limited Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 49%

After the Comte du Barry introduces her to King Louis XV, played by Johnny Depp, begins to try to entrance Jeanne du Barry, a French peasant. However, as she makes her way up French society, her rise creates a scandel. No one in the royal court wants to see a street person in their circles.

This is one of the first major film returns of Johnny Depp since the trial, and while the film has taken a hit in reviews, if you like historical dramas, then this story might interest you, and you can see if Depp still has his acting charm and skills.

Tarot – Releasing in Theaters

A group of kids at a party decide to break a rule and use a strangers deck, after they discover a very old and well used deck of tarot cards. Unknowingly they unleashed an evil that was trapped in the cards, and with it set their fate as death comes for them.

Most people don’t really see Tarot cards as a source of evil, or an evil gateway. I’m not really a person who delves into that world, but I wonder how people who believe in that spiritual field feel about a horror movie centered around the act of reading tarot cards.

Wildcat – Releasing in Limited Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 60%

As told through the mind and life of the celebrated Southern Gothic writer Flannery O’Connor’s, played by Maya Hawke, she asks the question “Can scandalous art still serve God? Does suffering precede all greatness?” and, “Can illness be a blessing?” After bring diagnosed with lupus at 24, the same disease that claimed her father, she ponders those questions while trying to make her mark as a writer.

I love Maya Hawke, and frankly I’ll watch any movie with her until she breaks my appreciation for her style, and character types.
