All Of Us Strangers – Releasing in Limited Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 97%

A chance encounter between Adam, played by Andrew Scott, and his neighbor Harry, played by Paul Mescal, throws Adam off. In his lost state, he ventures back home to see where he grew up, to find himself pulled back in time 30 years to see his parents before they passed away. He takes the opportunity to connect with them in a way he never was able to as a child.

While the original story in the book this is based on featured a straight character. The sexuality swap seems to work well with the notes and concepts within this film. It’s an amazing and sweet look at fitting in, and where you belong. If you are looking for a solid film, in the drama realm, this week. Then check this out.

Anyone But You – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (None Available Yet)

After a failed relationship, Bea and Ben, played by Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell, are forced to look like a couple when they find themselves both invited to a destination wedding in Australia.

Why do they keep making I hate you/I love you stories? At the very least, the chemistry between Sweeny and Powell does seem to work here, but frankly I hate negging culture and how it’s supposed to illicit a romantic entanglement. It teaches the wrong lesson.

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (None Available Yet)

When an old enemy returns for revenge, he does so with a power that Arthur Curry, played by Jason Momoa, can’t yet fend off as a fledgling king. It is with that in mind, that he turns to his Half-Brother, still imprisoned for his crimes, to help him fend off a war he desperately needs help to win.

This film looks awesome. While they don’t like each other, a relationship between the brothers must exist to save a kingdom they both love. Also Patrick Wilson is amazing in this role, and I’m glad he was actually given a chance to be more two dimensional.

The Iron Claw – Releasing in Theaters and Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (None Available Yet)

Kevin, played by Zac Efron, and the rest of the Von Erich family strive to become historical champions of the Professional Wrestling world as they fight through others, each other, and even thier domineering father/coach.

Zac Efron has literally disappeared into this role, transforming his body, and dedicating himself in a way he hasn’t before. If anything, there is nothing short of impressive. For wrestling fans, the tragedy and triumph of the Von Erich brothers will make this a must see film.

Migration – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (None Available Yet)

A family of ducks set off for their first migration, after living a life of peace and calm. However, they learn it’s not as easy as it seems. Accidently travelling the wrong direction, they find themselves in New York instead of the tropics.

This looks like an incredibly silly and cute film from the same people who created minions.
