TwiView: Justice League (2017)

#JusticeLeague is a glorified B movie with a few cool action scenes. The clunky writing, paired with mediocre acting leaves lots to be desired. You care more about your ass becoming numb from sitting too long than any part of the movie or it’s characters. #batfleck #nomoreDC (M. Snider)

TwiView: Murder On The Orient Express (2017)

Murder On The Orient Express (2017), B-.  Kenneth Branagh directs and stars in this reboot of the Agatha Christie classic showcasing the whip-smart and renowned Detective Hercule Poirot.  Poirot is reluctantly pulled into a murder investigation aboard a train ferrying 12 eclectic and somewhat eccentric personalities of which any one could be the culprit.  The film feels good, and it looks good especially the cinematography with the train in motion.  The performances are solid, and I admit I had no idea that was Daisy Ridley of Star Wars fame until the credits rolled, even though I knew she was cast in the film.  Branagh was capable as Poirot but short of David Souchet from the original.  Derek Jacobi made me smile again with his accent ability – that man deserves a lifetime Oscar before he sunsets and I love that he and Branagh circled back to work together after 26 years! (1991’s Dead Again – one of my top 10 American films).  Murder/Orient starts full of mystery and wonder but culminates in a slightly lesser version of the original.  You’ll love the performances but none are Oscar worthy.  Weekend box office prediction: $21 million.

TwitView: A Bad Moms Christmas, B+

TwitView: A Bad Moms Christmas, B+ If you have a love/hate relationship with your Mom that culminates around the holiday season, this one’s for you.  Mila Kunis, Katherine Hahn and Kristen Bell join Susan Sarandon, Cheryl Hines and the divine Christine Baranski in this raucous, insane and if you let it – truly touching comedy.  The trio all get surprise visits from their Mum’s who each has their own idea of what Xmas should be and forces it onto their over-worked and under-valued daughters.   This one’s a mix of ‘Lampoon’s Xmas Vacation’ (if it were R rated for potty mouth humor) and ‘Love Actually’ as it seamlessly mixes family holiday angst and the insanity that ensues when chasing the perfect Xmas.  Hahn is just as zany as the original but not overly done which was a pleasant surprise.  It does get emotional, and I shed a tear (shhh, don’t tell anyone).  It works as a date movie, but is so much better and relatable to any mom out there who has a mom.  #badmomxmas #badmoms #nonuditylotsofpottymouth
