There’s 7 movies hitting the home video market this week. You’d think luck would be involved and the viewing audience would be the beneficiary here since the number is 7 but that’s not the case. The box office winner of the group was Life, if that tells you anything about this week’s crop of releases. But at least it has Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal, right? Here’s what you should buy, rent, stream and skip for the week of June 20th:Buy It!
Life —MOVIE HOT TAKE REVIEW—
Super Simple Synopsis: “‘Member Alien? Oh, I ‘member. I loved Alien… it was fantastic!”
You buy something every week and this is probably the best you’re going to do. Sorry.
This Beautiful Fantastic –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: A reclusive librarian faces eviction if she can’t resurrect the garden in her backyard. Luckily, she befriends her grumpy neighbor who also happens to be a talent horticulturist.
It’s a rough week and this appears to be the perfect light film to get you through.
Wilson –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: A lonely, neurotic and honest middle aged man is reunited with his estranged wife and finds out he has a daughter he never met.
If you love Woody Harrelson, this one might be worth a look.
Everybody Loves Somebody –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: One of those movies where a really attractive girl has to pretend she has a boyfriend to impress her family and then an ex-boyfriend shows up. (I’m pretty sure there’s a rule one of these movies has to come out every 3 years.)
Because you look forward to these movies every 3 years.
Isolation –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: A struggling couple goes to the Bahamas to rekindle their marriage. When their cabin is ransacked, they reach out to a nearby couple for help but can they trust them?
At the end of the trailer, one of the main characters is in the water and there are sharks surrounding him. Does that make this a shark movie? If so, that’s why I say “Stream It!”
Altitude –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: Has Beens On a Plane.
Starring Denise Richards AND Dolph Lundgren, this airplane hijacking action flick doubles down on the ’90s B-Movie stars. Jonathan Lipnicki is in it, too… that’s the kid from Jerry Maguire, by the way.
Railroad Tigers –NO REVIEW–
Super Simple Synopsis: AJCM (Another Jackie Chan Movie).
If you’re a Jackie Chan fan, I’m not going to be able to talk you out of seeing it. If you aren’t, this one’s easy.
