Movies Releasing For The Week of December 28

We are back for another week. Ready to get my … Interesting take on movies?

Here is what movies are coming out tomorrow, and if we suggest you watching them.

 
 


Destroyer – Releasing 12/25/18
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 78%

Destroyer follows the fallout from a LAPD detective’s first undercover operation. Years after a tragic incident that defined the character, Erin Bell, played by Nicole Kidman, gets her revenge for the horrible actions that plagues her life.

This is a heavy film. It’s not a bad one. It’s supposed to be one of Nicole Kidman’s best films. But don’t go into this film expecting to see a run of the mill action film. This is a revenge pick.


Holmes & Watson – Releasing 12/28/18
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – (None Available Yet)

Sherlock Holmes and his partner Doctor Watson, the legendary amazing pair of literary intellect. Played by the comedic duo of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly. Turning the classic take on it’s head, they will bumble their way through historical England in an attempt to save the Queen from a plot against her life.

This is simple, you are either a fan of their work or you are not. That will truly decide if you see or even like this film. I’m going to see it.


The House That Jack Built – Releasing 12/28/18
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 58%

Lars von Trier, the creator of Antichrist, brings you “The House that Jack Built”. The film is a disjointed story with Jack, played by Matt Dillon, telling five stories in which he murdered people as a serial killer.

I’m happy for the return of Matt Dillon. He was a great actor, and I was happy to enjoy his serious and comedy roles. This movie is dark though, so if you are looking for a light hearted movie, then this is not for you. There is a bit of dark comedy in this mixed in, but it is very dark.


On the Basis of Sex – Releasing 12/25/18
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 78%

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is living in the golden age of her career. Large groups of people love her and are constantly inspired by her, and her life. As a direct result of this love and attention, this film was created to show a bit of her early life. In this movie, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is still just a young attorney, and teams up with her husband to bring a case to overturn a case allowing gender discrimination, before the U.S. Court of Appeals.

What can I say. I am a sucker for the Ginsburg, but I am not a fan of legal procedural. This is an important landmark moment in the history of gender discrimination. If you are so inclined to be moved by the history and hard work of this Justice, then you will not be disappointed in this film.


Stan & Ollie – Releasing 12/28/18
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 92%

These days, not everyone knows about Laurel & Hardy, an amazing comedy duo. This movie picks up at the end of their careers, when they took a tour of Britain in 1953. As they rekindle their love for the performance and benefit of the tour, they deal with the issues built up from their long term relationship. From old feuds, to health issues they make their way through their last hurrah.

John C. Reilly and Steve Coogan are at their best. They perform so amazingly. This is a seriously heartfilled movie, which shows an amazing growth of characters and tugs at the heart strings. If you don’t see this movie, you will regret it.
