Theatrical Releases: The BFG, The Legend Of Tarzan, & The Purge: Election Year

THE LEGEND OF TARZAN || July 1st, 2016

TheBFG-poster THE BFG || On paper, this film has everything it needs to be a success. Produced by Disney, directed by Steven Spielberg, adapted from author Roald Dahl. But with the trailer alone, this fails to impress. For starters, let’s acknowledge that the days of “Jurassic Park,” “Jaws,” and “E.T.” are likely past for Spielberg. None of his last few films have been that impressively original, with “War Horse,” “Lincoln,” and “Bridge Of Spies” feeling dated and solely Oscar-bait. Now “The BFG” looks like a middling young adult version of all those films, with nothing extremely exciting at hand despite having a director we all know to be at the very least competent.

TheLegendOfTarzan-poster THE LEGEND OF TARZAN || Listen, if you’re going to see an action-adventure film heavy on the CGI at all, you might as well see it in the theater, where at least your level of enjoyment will be at its height. Even if Alexander Skarsgård as the leading man Tarzan isn’t much of a selling point, Margot Robbie’s star is rising and she does look excellent in this film regardless of the hollow nature of the film as a whole. I’ve heard Christoph Waltz’s villain is rather one-dimensional but even Waltz at his worst is likely better than 90% of what’s out there.

ThePurgeElectionYear-poster THE PURGE: ELECTION YEAR || Not that we needed another addition to “The Purge” franchise but at least “Election Year” is timely and sees the return of Frank Grillo to give it some credibility. What made “The Purge: Anarchy” a decent sequel was expanding the universe of the film and going outdoors to explore what might actually happen during a night like this. How “Election Year” decides to expand on that will be what makes or breaks it.
