Weekly Round-Up: February 28 – March 05, 2016

I can’t believe I only saw three movies last week!

I watched:

  • The Intouchables (2011) – Based on a true story, this buddy comedy/drama between a debilitated wealthy man and his unpolished caregiver doesn’t really go anywhere plenty of other movies haven’t. NOT RECOMMENDED.
  • The Incredible Hulk (2008) – Nothing quite works in this origin story behind the iconic angry green superhero. Edward Norton doesn’t have enough to work with, and Liv Tyler whispers her way through sappy love dialogue. NOT RECOMMENDED.
  • Zootopia (2016) – Incredibly thoughtful and endlessly entertaining comedy-mystery set in an urban landscape where animals walk, talk, and harbor prejudices. Its complex messages around equality, diversity, and acceptance are profoundly timely in today’s fractured social climate. REQUIRED.

What did you see last week?
