Weekly Recap: Alita, Happy Death Day, Fighting with My Family & More!

Image
After years of development and a couple release date changes, Alita: Battle Angel finally arrives in theaters and the good news is that it's a lot of fun. I don't see it breaking any box office records, but it's a solid sci-fi feature. Also out, the sequel to the slasher-comedy Happy Death Day, which dials down the slasher and adds to the comedy. Fighting With My Family arrives in limited release as well, and it has plenty of heart to share with audiences. At home, you get the worst best picture nominee this year, and some other flicks worth checking out. The Walking Dead is back and I have a new review of it here. Lastly, be sure to check out our very entertaining Lego Movie 2podcast. Enjoy!

Weekly Recap: The Lego Movie 2, The Prodigy, Everybody Knows & More!

Image
It would appear that on the week of release of The Lego Movie 2 I can say that everything is mostly awesome. The animated sequel delivers the goods that audiences are hoping for. A horror movie focused on a creepy kid isn't half bad, and the Oscar-nominated short films have made their way to theaters, which is always a worthwhile trip. Plus, many of the Best Picture nominees are still out. On the home side, I have new Blu-ray reviews for Widowsand The Sisters Brothers, among other films, which are well worth your time. Plenty of other articles to check out as well. Lastly, we put together a great commentary track for Sin City, so feel free to enjoy that one as well. Thanks for reading and listening!
