Also, watch Wind River and rent The Dark Tower, Kidnap, and Patient Seventeen
Movie titles don’t get much better than Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature. I mean really, how can you not want to watch this movie. (OPP = Other People’s Pistachios). So gather the scurry (yes, there is a name for a group of squirrels) and watch this adorable sequel (squeak-quel?) this weekend. No kids? No problem. There’s plenty of humor in it for kids at heart too.
Also dropping today is Wind River, a crime thriller that drops the temperature on Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen as they work together to solve the murder of a young woman that’s as brutal as the Wyoming winter.
New to rent
Perhaps you were locked in a dark tower and missed The Dark Tower in the theaters. This adaptation of Stephen King’s novel of the same name pits Idris Elba (The Gunslinger) against a vengeful and destructive Matthew McConaughey (deceptively named Walter) in a supernatural battle for the universe. Saddle up and rent it today, cowboy.
We’ve also got Kidnap, staring Halle Berry as a mom on a mission to rescue her kidnapped son. Not to be confused with The Call, which also stars Halle Berry helping a kidnap victim – but this time as a 911 operator. (Pro-tip: Don’t let Halle Berry watch your kids.)
And if you’re up for some conspiracy theory and little green/grey men, check out Patient Seventeen, a documentary that follows a surgeon who claims to remove microchips embedded by aliens from their human abductees. #thetruthisoutthere
It’s almost that time of year again…that’s right, it’s almost time for snow, shots, and Santa. The Bad Moms are back with A Bad Moms Christmas, and we’ve already got our fingers on the pre-order triggers for this Friday. (Sip on that spiked eggnog.) This movie looks as hilarious and inappropriate as the first and we’re not ashamed to admit that we can’t wait to watch it.
Know what else we can’t wait to watch? Thor: Ragnarok. Aka the adventures of Thor and Hulk. (We know each other. He’s a friend from work.) We’re also excited about the elements of the Planet Hulk comic book storyline that have been added. But we hear there’s a bit of Bifrost chaos with the bridging of other pieces of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so we’ll see how that goes. Pre-order starts Friday.
Speaking of which…Watch free Marvel’s Avengers: At It Again
How convenient, free Marvel to hold us over while we wait for the Thor movie to come out. Coincidence? You decide. But it’s not like you can be mad at free titles like Thor Animated Movie: Tales of Asgard, Planet Hulk, Ultimate Avengers: The Movie, Doctor Strange, and more. All free and all awesome.
