Despite characters who came across as unlikeable, The Glass Castle is by no means a terrible drama, not in the least, because this engaging cast headlined by Brie Larson and Woody Harrelson, does make it watchable if nothing else.
Kong: Skull Island isn’t perfect but still fun and entertaining enough with director Vogt-Roberts intermixing monster movie with a Vietnam-era war picture and even the human characters weren’t bad, if not thinly written at times while Kong himself does show a bit of personality and his CGI was pretty good.
Free Fire on the surface should’ve been a fun movie and admittedly it was for the first 40-minutes or so, but the remaining 45-minutes seemed to meander with a plot that doesn’t go anywhere and a twist that wasn’t all that great. Still, this isn’t a “bad” movie per se and probably worthy of a rental.
Warner Home Video has announced the date and released artwork for the action-adventurer, Kong: Skull Island starring Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly and John Goodman and directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts. Click on the link below or image to the left to check out the features and artwork.
The Gambler isn’t the worst film around but it’s uninspiring and lacks energy which is a shame considering the cast assembled, and that does include Mark Wahlberg, but otherwise the writing is subpar and the plot itself is just all around dull. For his part, John Goodman was a lot of fun to watch it’s just unfortunate it was more or less a cameo appearance.
