Suicide Squad (2021) is rated R for swears, explosions, lots of shooting, stabbing, falling, garroting, dismembering, animal cruelty, brightly colored dot vomit, and body horror.
Obsessing about true crime can be fun. Investigating true crime in the building where you eat, sleep, and breathe can be deadly. The first 3 episodes of Only Murders In The Building debut on Hulu, August 30.
Welcome to the family, Lamb. On a sheep farm in Iceland, shepherds in want of a child make a baaaaa-ffling discovery (I couldn’t help myself). Coming to theaters October 8, 2021.
Old (2021) is Rated PG for swears, floaters, tumors, psychosis, people getting stabbed, people falling from heights, a calcium deficiency taken to its extreme, and the world’s fastest and saddest pregnancy.
What looks like a cross between a drama about addiction and brain-eating insects, The Nest focuses on a family in recovery from addiction, loss of trust and alien invasion.
That poor writing extends to the film’s back-seating of the trafficking and indoctrination of women under Dreykov’s control, instead preferring comic relief. Ultimately though, Black Widow is a satisfying watch because of the chemistry between players and the usual excitement from Marvel action movies. At a minimum, it’s great to finally have Johansson’s solo film in the filmography.
The Tomorrow War (2021) is an Amazon Studios production showing exclusively on Amazon Prime and is Rated PG-13 for swears, some pretty terrifying aliens, high powered gunplay, soldiers dying horrible, civilians dying horribly, sudden stops from high places, helicopter crashes, lots of blood and lots of explosions.
I won’t lie. I enjoyed 2017’s The Boss Baby. I might have even nominated it in my critic group’s annual awards. My kids loved it so much we purchased our own Alec Baldwin-voiced Boss Baby doll. So you would not be surprised to learn the sequel film was a highly anticipated event around these parts. Unfortunately, The Boss Baby: Family Business is a turd of a sequel.
The Forever Purge (2021) is Rated R for swears (in English and Spanish), uncomfortable discussions about who belongs where, lots and lots of people getting shot, people getting punched, garroting, and El Paso, TX getting blown up.
Too Late (2021) is unrated, but I’d pin a PG-13 for swears, off-screen sexytimes, a little blood, off-screen murder. This is pretty much all ages horror, and for your high-minded friends who think horror is beneath them, this might be the ticket for an evening’s watch.
Caveat (2020) is streaming exclusively on Shudder and is unrated, however, called it an R for swears, crossbow shooting, suicide, nosebleeds, and that danged rabbit.
Summer of Soul (…or, When The Revolution Could Not Be Televised) (2021) is presented with peace, love, and soul by Hulu, Onyx Collective, and Searchlight Pictures and is not rated, because everyone deserves to be bathed in its stunning aural glory.
