Theatrical Releases: The Birth Of A Nation & The Girl On The Train

THE BIRTH OF A NATION || October 7th, 2016

thebirthofanation-poster THE BIRTH OF A NATION || Despite the controversy surrounding the writer, director, and actor, Nate Parker delivers an awe-inspiring portrayal of a slave revolution that went on to win big at the Sundance Film Festival this last year. Originally it was up for a lot of Oscar buzz, but now with a decade old rape scandal coming to light in Parker’s past, the film’s Oscar chances have all but been abandoned unfortunately.
thegirlonthetrain-poster THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN || Emily Blunt leads the charge of this psychological thriller based on the best selling book. Feeling much along the same lines as “Gone Girl” and promising a twist much in the same realm, Blunt plays the lead character who is a drunk that is dealing with the loss of her marriage, as she passes her former, suburban neighborhood everyday on the train, obsessing over one of the women that leaves nearby and eventually becoming entangled in her apparent death.
middleschooltheworstyearsofmylife-poster MIDDLE SCHOOL: THE WORST YEARS OF MY LIFE || Very reminiscent of the “Diary Of A Wimpy Kid” series, Griffin Gluck plays the lead kid entering a new middle school where he faces off against bullies and in particular the principal, who sets new rules to which Gluck plans to break them. The film even blends the lines between real and animated much in the same way “Wimpy Kid” does. However, this lands as the follow-up to those films and feels a tad bit unnecessary.

voyageoftime-poster VOYAGE OF TIME || It’s Terrence Malick, so this is a must-see for me and it feels like Malick was born to make an IMAX nature film all about the universe, which in “The Tree Of Life,” he was actually criticized for taking the narrative to long forms of showing the development of the universe in what was called a sort of tangent. Now he has a full feature about it, narrated by Brad Pitt. He may not be with any of his well known cinematographer collaborators but the film still looks great.
