The Circle

The Circle is a gripping modern thriller starring Emma Watson (“Harry Potter”), Tom Hanks (“Sully”) and John Boyega (“Star Wars: The Force Awakens”). When Mae (Emma Watson) is hired to work for the world’s largest and most powerful tech & social media company, she sees it as an opportunity of a lifetime. As she rises through the ranks, she is encouraged by the company’s founder, Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks), to engage in a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and ultimately her personal freedom. Her participation in the experiment, and every decision she makes begin to affect the lives and future of her friends, family and that of humanity.

Scott’s Take

I was really looking forward to seeing The Circle, but I am starting to get worried that there wasn’t much roll out for this film. No press screenings and hardly any chatter regarding it. Never. A. Good. Sign.

Steve’s Take

Agreed with Scott. Not enough about The Circle circling around.

How to Be a Latin Lover

In this riches to rags comedy, an aging gigolo (Eugenio Derbez) is kicked to the curb by his 80-year-old millionaire wife, forcing him to move in with his estranged sister (Salma Hayek) and her young son. Anxious to return to the lap of luxury, he attempts to reignite his powers as a Latin Lover and win over the wealthy widowed grandmother (Raquel Welch) of his nephew’s school crush. HOW TO BE A LATIN LOVER also stars Rob Lowe, Kristen Bell, Rob Corddry, Rob Riggle, Michael Cera, and Raphael Alejandro.

Scott’s Take

Eugenio Derbez is absolutely hilarious and How to Be a Latin Lover looks like the perfect comedy vehicle to get him more recognition in the states.

Steve’s Take

I’m not sold on this one. I’m not sure I ever will be.
