Jason Bourne

The next chapter of Universal Pictures’ Bourne franchise, which finds the CIA’s most lethal former operative drawn out of the shadows.

Scott’s Take

Seeing as I didn’t have time to write up a full, proper review because Steve is on vacation, let me throw my two cents in on Jason Bourne. Is it as good as the other three Damon led Bourne films? Sadly, the answer is no. But, It is still pretty damn entertaining. The problem with the film is it plays like a greatest hits track on the other Bourne films. Matt Damon literally says nothing. He sulks, walks around, and kicks ass. The film is book-ended by two fantastic and long chase sequences that will blow your mind. Jason Bourne is light years ahead of the miserable The Bourne Legacy, it just feels a bit played out at this point. The ending promises a different Bourne next time around. I’d give it 3 out of 4 stars.

Bad Moms

In this new comedy from the grateful husbands and devoted fathers who wrote The Hangover, Amy has a seemingly perfect life–a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However she’s over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she’s about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities–going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence–putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.

Scott’s Take

Who doesn’t love them some Mila Kunis? Bad Moms looks pretty funny and will be the film I’m checking out this weekend.

 

Nerve

Industrious high school senior, Vee Delmonico, has had it with living life on the sidelines. When pressured by friends to join the popular online game Nerve, Vee decides to sign up for just one dare in what seems like harmless fun. But as she finds herself caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition partnered with a mysterious stranger, the game begins to take a sinister turn with increasingly dangerous acts, leading her into a high stakes finale that will determine her entire future.

Scott’s Take

Nerve looks like an underrated teen film that I would’ve enjoyed 20 years ago. I hope this one finds an audience.

Next Week

I think I would recommend all of these movies for different reasons.  But, Jason Bourne will be the draw this weekend. Next weekend clear your schedule for Suicide Squad.
