When I first saw the trailer for this movie, I knew I wanted to see it. There was something refreshing about it, something different. I actively seek movies with Denzel because I enjoy watching him on screen, I trust his judgment in action. And though he gives a great performance in this film, it doesn’t absolve the story of its other sins (of which there are many). My expectations were high and soon dismissed.
I just want to make sure you are all aware of the insanely-awesome subscription service that is Moviepass. Here’s what you need to know:
For $9.95/month (check the website for promotional prices) you can see one 2D movie, per day, in theaters.
That’s right – any 2D theatrical movie, regardless of release date.
Moviepass is accepted in over 90% of US theaters.
Once subscribed, Moviepass will send you a debit card in the mail to use for purchasing tickets.
To find a movie, download the Moviepass app, find your theater (you must use GPS and be within range of the theater), and “check in” to the movie you want to see.
Use the debit card at the register or any kiosk to purchase your tickets. (Moviepass will transfer funds to the card after you check in).
Watch your movie and do it again the next day!
I’ve had Moviepass since October and its been such a money saver. The app is notoriously bad (it has since been updated), but is worth the headache to essentially watch movies on the big screen for free.
I’ve learned that people LOVE (obssess) over the Kennedys, lol. Here’s another film in a long line of them, this time about Ted Kennedy and the death of Mary Jo Kopechne in 1969. I don’t know this story so I’m gonna watch it. How about you?
I believe the most important goal for social commentary films based on historical events is to make a meaningful and sensible call to action, NOT to take advantage of sensitive times and incite fear and anger within communities. What side will this film fall on?
Everyone loves the idea of one man (in this case two) taking on an army of men. The daughter sneaking along seems an unnecessary plot device, though; the stakes are already high with the men fighting for their own lives. Is this Jason Momoa’s first lead role? I’ve only seen him as Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones. Are you interested in seeing this movie?
What happened to Emily Blunt’s character in the first movie? She’s not in this trailer and I can’t remember how the prequel ended. I’m all the way here for Benicio Del Toro, though. He’s so underrated!
