Baby Driver

A talented, young getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) relies on the beat of his personal soundtrack to be the best in the game. But after being coerced into working for a crime boss (Kevin Spacey), he must face the music when a doomed heist threatens his life, love and freedom.

Scott’s Take

Look, I liked Baby Driver a lot. It had MOMENTS of greatness which makes it all the more disappointing for me. After all the hype, I felt the film fell flat in it’s last act. Definitely a must watch, but maybe temper those expectations.

Steve’s Take

I was really excited to see Baby Driver until Scott told me to temper my expectations. I still want to see it and I am sorry I missed the screening for it, but I am not quite as excited as I once was.

Despicable Me 3

Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters-Margo, Edith and Agnes-and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, the animated film is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and executive produced by Chris Renaud. Joining Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in Despicable Me 3 is Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker, co-creator of Comedy Central’s global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon. Parker voices the role of villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ’80s, and proves to be Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date. The film will be released in theaters on June 30, 2017.

Scott’s Take

I am one of the few that wants absolutely nothing to do with anything Minion related. I hear them talk and I want to jump out of a building. So, I am not the one to judge this type of film.

Steve’s Take

My son is going to love any Despicable Me movie so I am all good with it no matter what. I have heard good and not so good, but again he will love it no matter what and that is all that matters!

The House

Andrew J. Cohen directs this romp about a mother and father (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler) who blow their daughter’s college fund and start an illegal casino in their basement to recoup the losses.

Scott’s Take

I soured on Will Ferrell a couple of years ago. He is falling into that Adam Sandler category of people I just can’t stand to watch anymore. Maybe The House will be different. I am all about second, third, and fourth chances.

Steve’s Take

I am pretty much in the same boat as Scott with Will Ferrell. Nobody from the site saw this one because the screening was the same night as Spider-Man: Homecoming. I just didn’t want to be that guy that told Ralph he couldn’t see Spidey because I needed him to see The House.

Next Week

My pick of the week is Baby Driver. Next week get ready because we have the excellent Spider-Man: Homecoming and Ghost Story. Have a wonderful weekend everyone.
