The last week before Star Wars has just one new wide release but a plethora of new streaming titles to tide you over.

Coming Soon Trailers: Just Getting Started, The Disaster Artist.
I don’t think you get to make fun of bad movies if you made “Mother May I Sleep with Danger“!

It’s been a rough week so far, so the trailer train is pulling into the station a little late.  Luckily it should be worth the wait since we have a wide variety of films to be interested in this time around.  There is an action comedy starring Morgan Freeman, a dark comedy about the Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan debacle from the 90’s, and Seth Rogen and James Franco punching down on everyone’s favorite weirdo film maker, Tommy Wiseau.

On the home front, the selection is just as varied.  Toby Jones has one heck of a thriller about abuse, mental trauma, and wanting to kill your mother.  There is a post-apocalyptic survival tale, a haunted magic forest story, a drama about coming of age, and an odd amount of yarns about struggling writers.  I’m sure the script writers aren’t just projecting here.

Since we’re coming in hot, I won’t be giving more than a simple yes or no for recommendations.  Let’s get cracking.
