TGIF is not just an expression for workers who are super happy that the weekend has arrived, it’s also relevant to the countless film aficionados who love visiting new releases on Fridays- the day when most new releases hit the theaters. Each dedicated movie-goer has had the experience of Malabar Bat Removal waiting eagerly in anticipation for a sequel of their favorite movie to come out. But not every Friday can be this interesting. Despite that, many terrific films come out every month and there is never a shortage of things to see. Here is the list of three current movies you should go watch in the movie theater.
1. Deadpool 2
The first installment of the series hit the theaters in 2016 and was an immediate hit with film critics, comic book fans, and regular film goers alike. With a massive buzz develop, Deadpool 2 takes Ryan Reynolds’ character and gives him a newer and more magnanimous mission- to save a mutant orphan child from a genetically modified super soldier from the future named Cable and played with Josh Brolin. Upon his first face to face meeting, Deadpool soon finds that Cable is a much more powerful enemy villain than he could ever have anticipated. Thoroughly devoted to his assignment however, he decides to put his own super hero group together from a motley crew of odd and eclectic mutants he finds with want ads. The team creates a humorous counterpoint to Cable’s seriously evil motives as an action packed riot soon ensues.
The first Marvel film that ties into this film came out all the way back in 2008 with the release of Iron Man. Avengers: Infinity War is the attentive and grand culmination of each and each of these movies. Tying and twisting nearly every single storyline from previous movies to a braid, this film sets a new benchmark in canon incorporation. Bringing back about 90% of all of the Marvel characters to create a picture about an apocalyptic plan to cause the cleansing of half of the Universe was no simple feat. If filming this grand film was laborious, the groundwork for a viewer was so as well. However, the effort is well worthwhile as the movie shows Thanos (also played by Josh Brolin) attempting to collect all the infinity stones in his gauntlet so that he can have the ability to”restore order” to the Universe, namely killing half of its inhabitants. With such a strong adversary it requires the collective of all the superheroes combined to even stand a chance.
The third new release deviates substantially from the previous two in articles. The name RBG denotes the initials of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the currently 85 year-old second female to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. The film details the story of her life and highlights the many achievements she created both personally and for the women’s rights movement as it relates to the laws of the United States. While not apparently as exciting as a comic book based movie, the social context of this #metoo movement and #timesup, have propelled the ideas which RBG pioneered to new heights of relevancy. This movie acts as a perfect exclamation point for all these historical times.
