What is worth your time and money
A new month is upon us which brings with it a bunch of new movie releases. But what exactly is coming out this month that may be worth your time?
You don’t want to spend money on something that could possibly be really bad. So for your convenience, here is a nice rundown of some of the movies that may actually turn out to be worth your money.
A fantasy movie by Pixar that is all about seeing your father one last time. That sentence alone sells this movie.
Set in a fantasy world much like ours except replace most normal things with fantasy creatures like unicorns, elves and trolls. “Onward” tells the tale of two brothers who attempt to bring back their dead father for a day.
When the spell they are given goes horribly wrong and only brings back half of their father (his legs specifically), they must undergo a quest to try and bring back the rest of him. It is a race against the clock and a journey of self-discovery.
This film has a great set of actors voicing the various characters. Headlining the film are Tom Holland and Chris Pratt alongside Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Octavia Spencer. This film has all the makings of the next big hit, and with early reviews, it seems to have that Pixar charm.
The film is set for a March 6t release and will no doubt be worth at least one watch.
It’s no secret that comic book and superhero movies rule the film industry today. Now it is time for a new hero to join the fray, though he is not connected to either Marvel or DC.
This man is Ray Garrison, played by Vin Diesel, who is brought back to life and sent to kill his wife’s killer. Inside of him is a nanotechnology that makes him a superhuman killing machine.
Based on the Valiant Comics’ comic series “Bloodshot,” this film has the makings of a pretty fun action film, though it is hard to tell if it will be more than a simple popcorn flick.
Vin Diesel is no stranger to action films, so it has that going for it. The story sounds interesting and we can only hope it is executed well.
The film is set for a March 13 release and may or may not be worth a watch. We will have to see.
‘A Quiet Place Part II’
Return to the eerie quiet and creepy world of “A Quiet Place” this March. John Krasinski is back once again to direct this direct sequel, taking place not very long after the first.
Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds and Noah Jupe are also all back and must deal with the aftermath of their husband/fathers’ death as well as continue to survive in this post-alien invasion world. They will unite with other survivors and soon learn that the aliens aren’t the only threat out there.
2018’s “A Quiet Place” was a very tense and creepy film. The sequel will no doubt maintain that creepiness as well as shed some light on how the chaos began.
It is set for a March 20t release and will most likely be as enjoyable as the first.
Another Disney live-action remake hits theaters at the end of the month. This one, however, is a lot different from the other live-action remakes.
The other live-action remakes were either shot for shot remakes of the classics or the same idea with some added story elements. “Mulan,” however, maintains the same base story, but the way it is told is entirely different.
The film leans away from the musical aspects of the original and instead focuses on the struggle Mulan faced and the war to protect China. It is also more grounded in reality with Mushu, the dragon, no longer being in it.
While all the previous live-action remakes have all been fine but not that mind-blowing or different from the source material, “Mulan” could be the first really different and interesting one. We will just have to wait and see.
It is set for a March 27 release and no matter how well reviewed it is, you know you are going to see it and it will make a billion dollars.
Obviously, there are a lot of other films coming out this month, but these are some of the highlights. At least one of these should be a good choice.
