When their late chief is accused of committing substantial crimes, Mike and Marcus, played by Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, are forced to go on the run as they struggle to clear their name.

The show continues. If you’ve been a fan of the series, let’s be honest you are going to watch this, however, we can’t confirm yet if it’s worth watching.

A husband, played by Lily Franky, is set on a journey to an unknown land, when he deceased wife asks him to scatter her ashes in a place she felt joy as a child. However, the journey only becomes harder as he feels out of place, and his memories become to heavy to hold onto.

This is a very emotional and powerful journey that pushes stories of grief, love, and the compassion of strangers.

Kill Your Lover – Releasing in Limited Theaters and Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 100%

When Dakota, played by Paige Gilmour, and Axel, played by Shane Quigley-Murphy, break off their relationship, the toxic nature of their relationship turns Axel into a monster whose touch melts flesh. The toxicity has infected Dakota though, and now the two deal with the remains of their relationship that they can’t escape.

A very interesting take on a toxic relationship that people just can’t escape, while also showcasing the experience as a horror film. If you like horror and are willing to give this a try, it looks very interesting.

The world is coming to an end. Holly, played by Leven Rambin, and Ryan, played by Jake McLaughlin, are simply trying to enjoy their last days on the planet, but others conspire to use them to their ends. What’s the point of surviving criminals and religious zealots if the world is just going to end anyway? A lot, if you just want to be with someone you love as long as you can.

I like the idea of people all trying to do whatever they want for their last days, and the concept that someone who is happy might just want to enjoy their last minutes together, it feels like the stages of grief represented through the parties within the film.

I Used To Be Funny – Releasing in Limited Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 83%

Sam Cowell, played by Rachel Sennott, an aspiring stand-up comedian, but to make ends she has to work as an au pair. However, when a child she used to sit for disappears, played by Olga Petsa, she feels a pull to join the search for the child, in spite of her hesitations.

The story is told over multiple points of time, jumping back and forth between her time getting over her trauma, and the journey into the teen’s disappearance. This is a bit of a heavier story to follow, but if you are interested in the films attempt to mix comedy and drama, then this might be a good watch for you this week.
