(WJBK) - If you're headed to the movies this weekend, there are three big movies to talk about from a home for peculiar kids to comedy masterminds.
But we start in the real story of a history explosion on Deepwater Horizon.
This movie does a good job of explaining why it happened.
So many things wrong with the rig and the BP executives went forward anyway.
Deepwater Horizon tells the real stories behind this real world event. The film does a great job explaining the situation without taking way from the emotional human stories.
Mark Wahlberg, Kate Hudson, along with Kurt Russell and Gina Rodriguez, put in great dramatic performances in a film that is more powerful than expected.
Deepwater Horizon is a go. Thumbs up.
Zach Galifanikis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson lead the way in this all-star slapstick comedy masterminds.
It's based on the true story of the second largest cash robbery in us history.
The story is chaotic, over blown and to slapstick to be taken for serious humor.
Ghostbuster cast members Wiig along with Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones have another comedy miss.
Mastermind your weekend away from this film. Thumbs down
Based on a bestselling novel Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is peculiar.
This movie has a lot of explaining to do and it's doesn't explain anything very well.
Invisibility or bee breath, the kids’ peculiarities were just a little too far-fetched, but still compelling.
The method of time travel is just confusing and the love story is out of place.
And finally it's anothe film that wastes the talent of Sam Jackson all together.
Director Tim Burton makes a visually stunning film but too peculiar to enjoy.
So, it's a thumbs down for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.
