This Week In Movies: ‘Operation Finale,’ ‘Kin,’ ‘Blood Fest’

‘This Week In Movies’ is a weekly article that catches you up on all the new film releases coming out every week. This week we have the lowest amount of releases we’ve seen in years – only five. The end of August is usually considered the worst week for movies in a calendar year. Nevertheless, all five films offer either star power (Oscar Isaac who is the new Batman, an interesting premise, or a perfect excuse to zone out and laugh). Read on! Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘Christopher Robin,’ ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me,’ ‘Never Going Back’

This is a very good ‘This Week In Movies’. There’s a little bit for everyone from some family fair, comedy, documentaries and indie with some fresh faces and rising stars. First up is Disney’s Christopher Robin, essentially a live-action Winnie The Pooh movie. This one should choke on you up.  If you’re into politics, author Dinesh D’Souza compares Abraham Lincoln’s presidency to Trump’s in Death of a Nation, and indie film Never Goin’ Back stars Argentine actress Camila Morrone who is a star in the making harkening  back to Italy’s Sofia Loren.  See what else is here that you might like to see and GO SEE IT! And remember to listen to our podcast this Friday for our review of movies and interviews with filmmakers and other notable figures of American and Latino pop culture.

This Week In Movies: ‘Ghost In The Shell,’ ‘The Boss Baby’

It is a very feeble week for movies. There are only five films releasing this week. That is a head-scratcher and perhaps one of the few times that five films come out in a single week. Nevertheless, Scarlett Johansson’s Ghost in the Shell is the biggest release this weekend. It has the star power, the budget and the distribution release. It comes with some controversy though (whitewashing is mentioned), but it does look fun! Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more!

This Week In Movies: ‘Power Rangers,’ ‘Life,’ ‘CHiPs,’ ‘Wilson’

Spring is in the air and Hollywood is beginning to show its flair for the visual spectacle. Two films coming out this week offer some of that eye-candy many moviegoers such as: ‘Life’ and ‘Power Rangers’. Also, Latinos are making their presence felt this week with Michael Peña in ‘CHiPs’, Daniel Espinosa directing in ‘Life’ and Becky G making her film debut in ‘Power Rangers’. Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more! Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘The Belko Experiment,’ ‘Beauty & The Beast,’ ‘Betting On Zero’

It’s the middle of March and so far, 2017 has offered some terrific fare such as Get Out and Logan. But this week, the quality isn’t as robust as previous weeks. The stellar films to see this week are The Belko Experiment, BlueBeard and Betting Zero. One has a very thrilling ride of a concept that includes Bogotá, Colombia, the other, a Korean thriller that looks fascinating, and the last, a superlative work on investigative journalism that is sure to gouge the eyes of Herbalife. Enjoy the trailers and Listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more.  Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘The Magnificent 7,’ ‘Storks,’ ‘Queen Of Katwe’

It’s been a while since I’ve done these, but we’re back on track. It’s mid-September, past Labor Day and you know what that means… it’s Oscar season time. The Fall Preview of films is really Oscar films testing the waters. TFF was the kickoff and the NYFF starts next week. Also, this week we see more female directors taking charge. Get ready for the next couple of months! Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘Batman v Superman,’ ‘Born To Be Blue’

We’re a little more than half-way through March and this week’s movies offer a little somehting for everyone. One which has captivated my attention is Ethan Hawke’s Born To Be Blue, a jazz film about Chet Baker, arguably the most popular trumpeter after Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie. I had met with Hawke last year and he showed me several pics of the production and we discussed favorite albums plus his legacy. Also, we should address the armored bat in the room – Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This is the most anticipated film of 2016. The reason it is more anticipated than Captain America: Civil War, is the tremendous pressure and risk behind the success of WB and DC’s franchise set-up film. Read More

This Week In Movies… ‘The Transporter: Refueled,’ ‘Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos’

We begin the month of September this week and Labor Day is almost upon us. With summer almost done, the new releases for the next several days will try to provide us with a good laugh, because this week the comedies are really taking over. With such films as: Addicted to Fresno, Break Point, Bloodsucking Bastards and a Walk in the Woods, you could have some good chuckles, but if you are in the mood for something more edgy and informative, the documentary A Sinner in Mecca will open your eyes to a world that not many people have seen, from the point of view of openly gay muslim director Parvez Sharma.

This Week In Movies… ‘We Are Your Friends,’ ‘No Escape’

This is the last week of August and what better way to close up the month then with some variety films at the big screen. Zac Efron in We are your Friends, a very cool summer film about the life and struggles of an aspiring DJ in today’s electronic music scene. The film No Escape, an action thriller in which we will find a very serious Owen Wilson in a role that we have never seen him play, the action hero.  Read More

This Week In Movies… ‘Straight Outta Compton,’ ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’

The second week of August brings us very little cinematic value despite seeing the anticipated hip-hop biopic, Straight Outta Compton, and Guy Ritchie’s The Man From U.N.C.L.E. on the calendar release. Ritchie, the inconsistent, but influential British helmer with a profusion of talent, is back to his lightning speed editing and MTV visual style in the new TV show spy adaptation. Will this film reinvigorate his career?   Read More
