1. Jason Bourne (Universal, 4,026 Theaters, 123 Minutes, Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, and brief strong language, Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer at press time: 54% Fresh [124 Reviews]): After a film off, Matt Damon and Paul Greengrass return to Bourne franchise. Who says you can never go home again?
Bourne has been off the radar for ten years when he suddenly resurfaces. The world is in chaos, but is Bourne back to straighten it out, or make it worse? For the members of Operation: Ironhand, it really doesn’t make a difference. They mean to bring him back at all costs.
I’ve liked the films I’ve seen of the series, so I’ll probably like this one, even though critics think it might be returning to the well too many times.
2. Bad Moms (STX Entertainment, 3,215 Theaters, 101 Minutes, Rated R for sexual material, full frontal nudity, language throughout, and drug and alcohol content, Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer at press time:59% Fresh [59 Reviews]): You’ve had Bad Santa and Bad Teacher. Now, something that isn’t really all that funny in real life yet we are expected to laugh at it on the big screen.
Amy (Mila Kunis) tries her hardest to be a good mother. But when the hypercritical attention she gets from the perfect mothers gets to be too much, she snaps. The resulting binge will show everyone just how bad a mother she can be.
I personally want to thank STX Entertainment for titling the movie this, because the search for a poster for the film resulted in a number of interesting images showing up on my screen.
