  12. Sources with knowledge of the situation tell Collider that Lucasfilm has decided to put plans for more A Star Wars Story spinoff movies on hold, instead opting to focus their attention on Star Wars: Episode IX and what the next trilogy of Star Wars films will be after that film.
  13. At 99% on Rotten Tomatoes this is the best reviewed movie of the summer. This movie was getting a lot of hype while on the festival circuit and after seeing it last week I can gladly confirm this documentary lives up to the hype. I say this with no exaggeration that it was one of the most profound movies I’ve seen in a while. I cried many times even though nothing particularly sad happens, but also felt lifted up at the same time. I walked out wanting to be a better person, and over a week later that feeling has stuck with me. With all of the negativity in the world these days there is something powerful about seeing an uncommonly decent man do the right thing for decency sake and succeed because of it. Even if you typically don’t catch documentaries in a theater, this is absolutely a must see.
  14. This gives me an easy way to rewatch and see if my feelings change on the second viewing!
  15. 50% on RT $150M opening weekend Just as the dinosaurs themselves were reverse engineered from bits of left behind DNA, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom feels reverse engineered from a trailer. It's a film that moves breathlessly from action set piece to action set piece, but seemingly without thought or reason. The driving force for it's two hour run time is never narrative or character, but a brash and brainless commercialism, focused almost entirely on creating brief, trailer worthy moments. If you've seen the marketing for this fifth installment, you've likely seen some of these shots: A T-Rex standing triumphantly on another carnivore, volcano exploding in the background, Chris Pratt's Owen Grady staring down any number of dinosaurs or jumping through the open mouth of another T-Rex. These shots are often impressive, well framed and scored, and for the briefest of moments, reminiscent of the awe this series is constantly chasing. The failure then, is everything that must precede and follow those moments. At virtually no point in this film does a character make a critical decision that feels identifiably human. The villains are transparent and necessarily insidious. It's not enough that their hubris and greed be their downfall, they have to go out of their way to kill innocent people and imprison little girls. The heroes though, are even worse. Save the volcano at the beginning, every disaster that we witness throughout Jurassic World 2 is directly the fault of our heroes. They put themselves in ridiculous positions without any clear motivation, they actively make every situation more dangerous for themselves and everyone around them, and when things get out of control they do nothing to neutralize the situation, preferring instead to make disasters into catastrophes. With Jurassic World, the long mishandled series had a clear idea for a compelling premise. Even though I will always bemoan the execution of that film, I can credit it for that. With Fallen Kingdom, the franchise reverts back to the issues that plagued the first two sequels to Jurassic Park; lacking any worthwhile ideas for where to take the series next. Fallen Kingdom then compounds this with a complete lack of character drama, the thinnest possible motivations, and the worst plotting this series has yet seen. Fallen Kingdom is certainly in the running for the worst in a franchise with more than a couple terrible entries.

    https://moviepass.com Has anyone here used Movie Pass. I have a co worker that has and it seems to be accepted to nearly all the theaters here in Austin. Seems like a good deal even if you only see 2 movies that month.

    Movies The Rider

    97% on RT $42k opening weekend Westerns have a long tradition of being a medium for Americans to self mythologize and for others to explore that mythology. From the classics of John Wayne and Sergio Leone, to modern entries from the Coen Brothers and Denis Villeneuve, the best westerns use the American landscape to contrast the heights of our potential and idealism from the hardships and burdens of our reality. The Rider accomplishes both. Telling a distinctly American story, a story of self mythologization, set against the breathtaking great plains, it's also a story that doesn't veer away from the cruel and deeply unforgiving reality we've built. It's a film that comes from the last place you'd expect, but wields an indisputable authenticity. Powerful and beautiful, and it's one of the best films of the year. Chloé Zhao is not who anyone should rightfully expect to make a western. Born and raised in Bejing with very little exposure to western films, much less westerns in particular, she moved to South Dakota to tell stories. She became enraptured by a local cowboy, Brady Blackburn, who stars in The Rider as Brady Jandreau. Much of the film is like that; only slightly removed from reality, even bordering on documentary. Brady's real life family play his family on screen, his friends play his friends. His injuries in the film are real, and so are all his interactions with horses. Shot on South Dakota's Lakota-Sioux Pine Ridge Reservation, the poorest county in America, there is a realism here impossible to fake. Some of the film's authenticity does come at a cost. With virtually no professional actors in the cast, the acting can be pretty rough at times, even distractingly so. It's a small price to pay compared to the thrill of watching Brady tame an actual wild horse in real time, but it's part of the experience. For all it's realism, it's not a telling of the real Brady's story. Chloé Zhao took his life as a starting point and wrote a compelling narrative drama from those pieces. The Rider is a story of self reflection and a search for meaning. A study of a man desperate for agency and the forces that conspire against him. The story centers around Brady's head injury, and being told that he could no longer ride horses or compete in rodeos. As a talented rider he's being asked to give up the only thing he knows, his only opportunity to make something of himself. Thanks to the delicate touch of the director and the magnetism of the protagonist, The Rider is able to communicate all that with nuance and grace. It's small and it's slow, but most of all it's a touching film that I keep revisiting in my head, long after having seen it. The Rider is still in theaters, and I'd recommend seeking it out if you're lucky enough to have it playing in your area. If not the best info I could find is that it might hit VOD in mid August. If you're interested in The Rider or Chloé Zhao, I also recommend checking out this piece in Rolling Stone or her interview on The Treatment.

    Movies Ocean's 8

    66% on RT $42M Opening Weekend Ocean's 8 is a film that is better than Gary Ross's very poor Steven Soderbergh impression thanks to some dynamite casting, but it's ultimately unable to overcome the many issues that the writer / director brought to the table. On the surface, it's all there. Great cast, jazzy soundtrack, cool caper, and interesting characters. It's a recipe that Soderbergh managed brilliantly in Ocean's Eleven, but even he wasn't able to recreate it in his own sequels. It shouldn't be a surprise then, that Gary Ross falls even flatter in his attempt to cook up the same magic. Ross is completely unable to match Soderbergh's pacing or use the soundtrack to similar effect. This is a film that is completely centered around a high fashion event, but it's never able to be as effortlessly fashionable as Soderbergh's remake. It completely mistakes what, why, and how Eleven was so cool. Ross's poor impersenation didn't end at Ocean's Eleven either. The villianless structure was reminiecent of Magic Mike XXL and the end of the film directly echos Logan Lucky. In each case, Ross took something interesting and made it less so when grafted into Ocean's 8. All that said, Ocean's 8 isn't a complete disaster. While the sum is less than that of its parts, many of those parts are unquestionably worthwhile. In particular the leads have excellent chemistry. I could watch Bullock's sly Debbie Ocean and Blanchett's disinterested Lou run petty schemes and cons for hours. Hathaway perfectly embodies the image obsessed actress archetype, and Helana Bonham Carter's perpetual fish out of water routine works very much in her favor here. The rest of the cast is solid even if not entirely put to the best use. There are small joys sprinkled throughout the film, the kind that could have made a good movie great, instead of a poor one mediocre. The heist itself is interesting, but ultimately a failure in the ways that count. By never introducing a real foil for the ladies of crime, the stakes are kept to a minimum. That can be overcome given that there's still something of a thrill in the act, but the bigger issue is one of satisfaction. Regardless of how the heist itself ends, what the mark was or the reward, a successful heist film will leave you satisfied with the work. Inception's payoff is ultimately a single phone call and a business deal not going through, but there are both stakes and a real gratification in what they accomplish. That isn't present in Ocean's 8. Ross tries for it, but it feels hollow and ham fisted. He knew what it was he needed to do, he just wasn't good enough to get it done. In a film full of professional lairs, it's a shame that it's the director that couldn't make the disguise work. Given the rather reasonable box office performance I'd be happy to see another entry in this franchise, but I really hope they find someone else to put at the helm.
