Coming Soon Trailers: Transformers 5, Tubelight.

Transformers:  The Last Knight is here to assault our eyeballs and brain-cells.  Hooray.

In case past articles have been too subtle:  Transformers is a god awful, brain dead movie franchise and Michael Bay has the artistic integrity of E. Coli.  With that being said, thank goodness there is a ton of alternatives this weekend!  Since nobody in Hollywood is willing to put their movie up against the money devouring shit storm that is a Transformers flick, we’ll have to rely on Bollywood and the video on demand market.

Wide Release.

Transformers 5:  The Last Knight.

Do these things even have stories any more?  Apparently robots who can turn into cars have been around since King Arthur never existed and now that is important so that famous actors like Anthony Hopkins and Mark Wahlberg can cash a shame check.

See It?:  God damn you to hell if you see this.

Stop giving that flag waving, woman hating bullshit artist Michael Bay money!  He’s the Donald Trump of cinema.  Violence, misogyny, thinly veiled racism, and brainless spectacle all draped in copious amounts of false patriotism.  Fuck these movies.

Limited Release.


A simple but good-hearted man sets out from his small Indian village to find his brother, who has gone missing during the Sino-Indian war of 1962.

See It?:  Yes.

Star Salman Khan is one of the biggest actors in India and this movie appears to be his fusion of Saving Private Ryan and Forrest Gump.  If you’re lucky enough to have it playing near you, give it a view.

The Bad Batch.

The official tag line is “a dystopian love story set in a community of cannibals.”  Good enough for me.

See It?:  Sure.

Hell, it’s got Keanu Reeves in an ultra violent post apocalyptic black comedy.  Sign me up.

Video On Demand.

Death Pool.

Based on a true story, a young man who was nearly drowned by a troubled babysitter grows up to be a serial killer with a fetish for drowning beautiful young women.

See It?: Rent it.

There’s a snark and camp to this film that the makers are leaning heavily into. I was impressed by the sound editing in the trailer, so at least this film should be fun to listen to.

Hearing is Believing.

A documentary about the life and career of a young musician and composer, Rachel Flowers, who has been blind since birth.

See It?: Netflix it.

This doc has pedigree, coming from director Lorenzon DeStefano, and has some heart, but I’m not seeing enough in the trailer to elevate it into a film you have to run out and see on the first weekened.

Spirit Game:  Pride of a Nation.

The story of origin of Lacrosse, which began as a game sacred to the Iroquois, and how in 2015 the Iroquois National hosted the world championship on native soil for the first time in history.

See It?: Yes.

A strong documentary that warrants attention, both for its themes and wonderful presentation.

Without Name.

A young man sent to survey a secluded woodland in Ireland becomes intrigued and eventually imprisoned by the forces at play in the forrest.

See It?: Rent it.

The trailer doesn’t show much, but it does showcase some fantastic cinematography. Hopefully it can be as weird and dissorienting as the description promises.

Love, Sweat, and Tears.

A documentary about how Dr. Pamela Dee Gaudry is on a quest to spread information and hope to women and the general public about menopause.

See It?: Netflix it.

I’m interested to see how much factual information is in this doc, since the trailer is obviously trying to make an emotional appeal. The visuals are polished and the selection of celebritites are engaging (especially Joan Rivers in her last onscreen appearance) but I’m not getting much hard evidence from the trailer.

Nobody Speak:  Trials of the Free Press.

Starting with the shadowy funding of the Hulk Hogan Vs. Gawker lawsuit, this documentary examines how wealthy people from Peter Theil to Donald Trump are waging a war against the free press.

See It?: Literally Netflix it.

It will be interesting how much of the narrative relies on the Gawker lawsuit, and if this becomes a documentary where the message outruns the issues. Given those caveats, this seems like a timely doc.
