This Week In Movies: ‘The Circle,’ ‘How To Be A Latin Lover,’ ‘Buster’s Mal Heart’

04.24.2017 | By |

How To Be A Latin Lover is how we begin the week’s film releases. For the love of a god, any god, I hope this comedy doesn’t regress Latino culture 30 years. To be frank, I can’t bring myself to see it. You guys let me know how it is. In other releases, Tom Hanks and Emma Watson engage us in a black mirror story about technology and social media and humanity in The Circle and Rami Malek leaves his Mr. Robot persona to give us Buster’s Mal Heart, a quirky thriller that is sure to make you see Malek with different eyes. Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more!
