The Cloverfield Paradox had an interesting idea at its core, likely whatever remained of the original script God Particle, but the execution, and forcing it to be part of the Cloverfield franchise, just was not well thought out.
Molly’s Game, in spite of the seemingly non-stop dialogue (both in-movie and with narration) and excessive running time, was still rather entertaining especially for those who enjoy the “sport” of poker or can appreciate the performance from Jessica Chastain who does command the screen.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children may not be classic Tim Burton but it is one of his more entertaining outings of late which, with the exception of Frankenweenie, haven’t been great. This might not quite be a film for the entire family as there are darker elements but for older kids, they might dig some of the visuals and characters they might relate with on some level.
Cuban Fury is a fun, if not uneven, music-comedy. Nick Frost and Rashida Jones both turn in fine and funny performances and the music itself is catchy, even for those unfamiliar with the style; all in all, this is rental worthy. The Blu-ray released by Entertainment One offers good video and audio transfers while the bonus material, albeit limited, is somewhat worth a watch.
