Film Friday: Valentine’s Day Edition

Heading out to the movies tonight? Find out what’s playing on Film Friday.

Some people like to go to the movies on Valentine’s Day. You should be going to see The Lego Movie, but let’s take a peek at what’s opening this weekend.

About Last Night

This is a remake of a film from 1986, so that’s a thing. I’m not really sure what to think about this.

Kevin Hart headlines, which usually makes me groan, but some of the trailer actually made me laughed. This looks like an actually competent romantic comedy, which is rare in that genre.

Plus, I’m a fan of Regina Hall and she seems to have good chemistry with Hart.

I hope you’re happy with this Kevin, now either tone it down or stop making movies.

3/5.

Robocop

Oh, PG-13 Robocop? PG-13 ROBOCOP?

I understand you want to make money as a studio, but this story is a little grim for PG-13. How am I supposed to get my Detroit on without some real violence?

It really hurts the tone of the movie.

In the trailer, Alex Murphy is blown up, and there’s still a chance to save him. In real Robocop, the officer needed to be dead, so Murphy got lit up.

You neuter Robocop, you get a lower score than Kevin Hart.

2.5/5.

Winter’s Tale

Dude, what?

I know it’s really tough to get lost in the trailer, but I have no idea what is going on here.

What I do know is that Colin Farrell is in this, and I like Colin Farrell. I like him a bit more when he’s a bumbling assassin, but he can’t do that in every movie.

Also, I guess Will Smith is in this? I didn’t see him in the trailer.

I’d say avoid this one.

1.5/5.

Endless Love

Do people watch these movies?

I mean, the title cards and music at the beginning of the trailer made me think this might be a horror movie. I expected Mark Wahlberg from Fear to show up.

But no, here we have the tale of a blah blah blah, so boring.

Don’t go see this.

1.5/5.
