Spy

Susan Cooper (Melissa McCarthy) is an unassuming, deskbound CIA analyst, and the unsung hero behind the Agency’s most dangerous missions. But when her partner (Jude Law) falls off the grid and another top agent (Jason Statham) is compromised, she volunteers to go deep undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer, and prevent a global disaster. (C) Fox

Scott’s Take

A much welcomed return to form for Mrs. McCarthy. Her act was starting to grow tired in movies like The Heat and Tammy. In Spy she is given enough funny material, most of it self deprecating, to keep the laughs coming. Let’s hope she stays on track.

Steve’s Take

I’ve been so annoyed by her movies lately, that I didn’t even care that I missed the screening for Spy. I’ve heard that Spy was hilarious so I will make it happen this week.

Entourage: The Movie

Entourage,” the much-anticipated big-screen version of the award-winning hit HBO series, reunites the show’s original cast, led by Kevin Connolly, Adrian Grenier, Kevin Dillon, Jerry Ferrara and Jeremy Piven. Movie star Vincent Chase (Grenier), together with his boys, Eric (Connolly), Turtle (Ferrara) and Johnny (Dillon), are back…and back in business with super agent-turned-studio head Ari Gold (Piven). Some of their ambitions have changed, but the bond between them remains strong as they navigate the capricious and often cutthroat world of Hollywood. (C) WB

Scott’s Take

I’ve only seen a couple of episodes of Entourage and while I liked it, it was never something I could consistently bring myself to watch. For fans of the show, I hope you enjoyed this movie because with its dismal box office receipts, this is looking like the last of it.

Zipper

A family man who has it all until he risks losing everything due to his inability to fight off his obsessive temptation for other women.

Scott’s Take

All I know about Zipper is that my wife keeps asking me to watch this one with her. It’s been on VOD for about a month. Should I trust her or the 19% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. I’ll choose the latter.

Steve’s Take

Scott will be watching this one at some point this week. Fact.

Poltergeist

Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever. (C) Fox

Scott’s Take

Here is another example of a remake that just didn’t have to come to fruition.  oltergeist isn’t bad enough to sit here and bash, but when you hold it up to the original it is completely uninspiring. The whole time I was watching this film I kept wondering if I would like it better if the original didn’t exist. If you have seen the original classic there is nothing to see here. If you haven’t, what are you waiting for?

Steve’s Take

Nothing I can say that Scott hasn’t already said.

Next Week

That’s all for this week. Lot’s of diversity. My pick of the week is going to have to be The Avengers: Age of Ultron, it isn’t perfect but it’s loads of fun. Next week we have Insidious: Chapter 3, Dark Places with Charlize Theron, Sharknado 3 (yawn), and Manglehorn with Al Pacino. Have a great week everyone.
