Four new movies to see this weekend
There are a few movies to discuss today, but none of them are expected to be blockbusters. In fact, perhaps the biggest new movie is streaming.
Film critic Greg Russell has joined “Live In The D” with four new films for Reel Talk.
First, Russell discussed the live-action “Pinocchio” with Tom Hanks, which premieres this week and is available on Disney+. He says it is a retelling of the well-known tale. The plot revolves around a man who wants a son and creates a puppet, which is animated by a fairy. Russell says this movie is for kids and gives it four out of five reels.
Second, is the third installment in Kevin Smith’s “Clerks” series. It’s one of those cult favorites, and Russell had the opportunity to discuss it with Smith. It was Smith’s 51st birthday when they started filming, and he said it was an absolutely great experience to be back where he started his career with friends he’d worked with for 30 years. He said he wanted to make a story about their life using the characters and himself. Russell gave this film three out of five reels and suggests you see the first two “clerks” so you can figure out what’s going on.
Third, the action movie “Wire Room” stars Bruce Willis and Kevin Dillon. Greg says that, unfortunately, this is Bruce’s last film. The movie is about a guy who plays a government agent and walks into a room where he has to stop people from blowing up the world. Greg spoke with Dillon, who said the film was made in just seven days and he was happy with the final product. He went on to say that it was difficult because nothing was showing on the screens in front of him and there were no actors in the room with him in person other than by phone. Greg gave this film three out of five reels.
Finally, a Detroit-based horror thriller called “Barbarian.” A young woman who goes to town for a job interview and stays at an Airbnb is the subject of the film. She only finds out that she is in a bad situation the next morning, when the weather is nice. Also, when she arrives at the Airbnb, there is double booking and the man who is willing to let her stay there as well, disappears. Once he left, strange things started happening. Russell gives this film three and a half reels.
The full interviews can be seen in the video above.
