Godzilla vs. Kong may have symbolized a sudden shift in moviegoing habits, but we aren’t out of the pandemic yet, so this week’s new release might still struggle.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): I love sci-fi, but this looks unbearably infuriating.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): Looks like another sappy sci-fi film from the director of Divergent.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The concept sounds more exciting than the trailer, which feels like it relies heavily on teenaged emotions and little else.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): We’ve seen the concept before, but a good locked-house horror film can be engaging. Not sure if this will be or not.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): This week’s senseless horror film looks like another waste of time.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): It feels like the couple is being held by HAL, the computer from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Somehow giving the voice of computer a body dilutes the tension.

Individual Commentary:

Wesley Lovell (WL): A gay war drama that doesn’t look very interesting? Not for me.
Peter J. Patrick (PP): BAFTA-nominated film about harsh realities of military life in 1981 Apartheid South Africa could has received mixed reviews.
Thomas LaTourette (TL): The concept is interesting and the reviews are good, but the trailer does a pitiful job trying to sell this as a personal drama.
