1987 – The Secret of My Success, Three For the Road
All Eyez on Me
This week we’ve got several new movies. Diane Keaton remade every other movie she’s made over the last ten years with Love the Coopers. Sean wasn’t thrilled. The 33 is a Lifetime like movie that made it to the theaters. It’s pretty good, but it’s not a very gritty story…it’s just warm and fuzzy. Suffragette was an ok that was supposed to be great about the early feminist movement. My All American is a Christian film that also happens to be the best film of the weekend. It’s Rudyesque but the direction is a little amateur. Knock Knock is the new Eli Roth film that is so bad it’s amazing. Keanu Reeves redefines bad acting. It’s actually so bad that it’s good. I Smile Back is the new Sarah Silverman movie. It’s not a comedy what so ever. Silverman is great in it, the movies great. It’ll probably end up on the outside looking in come award season, but that shouldn’t take anything away from this movie.
Top Five this week is Feminist movies.
For our Undisputed Classic this week is “Brian’s Song.”
