One of the nice things about not being in production (thanks again, Syfy) is the free time I now have to read, hang with the dogs and, of course, catch up on movies. There are a bunch of new releases I’m considering checking out, but I’m…unconvinced. So, please convince me – one way or the other: Should I go see these movies?
Blade Runner 2049
Reason to go see it: I loved the original.
Reason not to go see it: I loved the original. Also, it’s freakin’ 164 minutes long!
Reason to go see it: After three seasons working with him on Stargate: Atlantis, I feel I owe it to Momoa to go see his movie.
Reason not to go see it: After the big, bloated DOA corpse of a movie that was Avengers: Age of Ultron, I’m very circumspect when it comes to superheroes on the big screen.
The Killing of a Sacred Deer
Reason to go see it: An intriguingly weird-looking.
Reason not to go see it: So was Mother.
Murder on the Orient Express
Reason to go see it: A great cast.
Reason not to go: Of all of Agatha Christie’s works, the ending to this one was perhaps the most unsatisfying.
Reason to go see it: Great reviews.
Reason not to go see it: Doesn’t really look like my cup of tea.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Reason to go see it: That audacious title.
Reason not to go see it: I’ve heard little about it.
Reason to go see it: Foreign genre entries are often unique and compelling (ie. Pan’s Labyrinth, The City of Lost Children).
Reason not to go see it: And, occasionally, plain awful (Pinocchio, High Tension).
Steer me right, people!
