Blueback – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 81%

Abby, played by Mia Wasikowska, is a marine biologist researching Australia’s deteriorating coral reefs. All of that is put on hold when her mother, played by Radha Mitchel, develops a stroke. As she deals with her ailing mother she remembers her childhood and how her passion for environmental conditions arrose and the friendship she formed with the rare Blue Gropper in her local coral gardens, that she named Blueback.

This is based off of Tim Winton’s novella and delves as much into environmentalism as it does into the relationships between mother and daughter. If you are looking at a mix of coming of age, and family journey story, then this one will hit all the notes.

Children of the Corn – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 8%

When the twelve year old Eden, played by Kate Moyer, is possessed by a spirit in the dying cornfield, she gathers the other local children forcing them to take the town. However, when one high schooler won’t go along with Eden’s plans, he is the only hope to return the small town to it’s former form.

If you are looking for a horror movie, then this is definitely one. It’s a remake of a classic, for anyone under 20, that really changed the genre of horror and created a whole trope about scary children. Maybe don’t see this film if you have spooky children in your life.

Creed III – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 91%

Once more continuing the world of Rocky, Adonis Creed, played by Michael B. Jordan, had dominating the world of boxing. Now a childhood friend, played by Jonathon Majors, is released from prison and wants a chance in the ring to even the score between the two. However, can Creed win against a fighter who has nothing to lose?

While there has been a lot of hubbub about what is bastadizing the Rocky legacy, Stallone condones these films, stating that they tell a great story and stand on their own. Additionally, it’s great to see Jonathan Majors in more roles. I’m interested to learn more about the two character’s relationship and feel like it can create a solid story for the film.

Hunt Her, Kill Her – Releasing in Limited Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (None Available Yet)

When a woman on the first night as a late shift janitor discovers she has become the target for masked intruders, she must struggle to survive. As the hunt continues, she learns their motives, and must lean deep inside herself to become clever and violent if she is to make it out of this fight.

Seems a little basic, but I’m interested to see how Natalie Terrazzino does in this role as the “Final Girl.” If you like horror, but are worried that Children of the Corn will be a bad remake, you always have this option.

Operation Fortune: Ruse De Guerre – Releasing in Theaters
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 68%

When a spy organization must target a ruthless criminal, played by Hugh Grant, who plans to sell deadly weapons, the head agents, played by Jason Statham and Aubrey Plaza, convince their boss that big time star Danny Francesco, played by Josh Hartnett, is the best way to get in close with the arms dealer. But Danny is way over his head, and he isn’t really an action star in real life.

Wow, this movie doesn’t look like it’s the best story in the world, but it’s got a great cast including Cary Elwes as the leader of the spy organization. Additionally I love to see Hugh Grant experience some range in this film and can’t wait to watch it!
