Thank You for Your Service (2017)
If you look at war films, they are all Hollywoodized all to a certain degree. It's not to say they are bad reflections of the wars but I would go to the History Channel or something along those lines for a more proper story of wars. The post-war and the effects that veterans suffer after the war including PTSD, struggling to find a job and depression has never been done in Hollywood. We see it for the first time in the new war film Thank You for Your Service.
Goodbye Christopher Robin (2017)
With everything going on in the media and as it get's older and older, it's being lost how big of a series Winnie the Pooh was and still is. Millions of books sold, many film adaptations, and an icon for young children for years to come. The latest Winnie the Pooh adaption is Goodbye Christopher Robin, an adaption unlike anything we've seen before for mainly all the wrong reasons.
Goodbye Christopher Robin
Only the Brave (2017)
If you been paying attention to recent news sadly, Calfornia wildfires are alive and well. It's an ongoing issue that seems to be only worse and obviously isn't good for California as a whole. It was only time Hollywood would make something off of it. That said, Only the Brave is a great film though showing respect and honors what great sacrifice firefighter do in forest fires. What a treat of film this is.
Battle of the Sexes
Friend Request (2017)
Maybe the corniest genre to horror films is the social media genre. We had the corny film Unfriended, horror dealing with the dark sides of Skype and Facebook. On a much smaller level, you also had the foreign film The Den (2013), dealing with webcams. It's a unique genre but I don't see how it can grow and will become so dated twenty-years from now. The worst film to the social media genre to this date and basically a rip-off in many ways to Unfriended is Friend Request out this weekend.
Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)
A lot of Hollywood series nowadays don't deserve to exist. From tiresome clichés, money grabs and unoriginal rides, so many reasons can be found as to why we don't need the series's that we have. After a hit of a first film and now a sequel in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, this seems like this is primed to be the next big series. Is this sequel the step in more of the right direction or a step backward? Do we really need this series?
American Assassin (2017)
Even though his filmography isn't much right now, I really do see a lot in Dylan O'Brien. A likable and normal guy who has a lot of charm in roles. His biggest role was in the TV department in the show Teen Wolf and in the film department, he's made good money off the Maze Runner series. These are roles that work for him now but these are only 'teen roles' and he could be finding something better because he has more talent than what he's putting himself in. His newest lead role is in the CIA film The American Assassin. Something that much different from what he use to it and step into more adult roles but's its a mess of a film.
A Trip to Spain (2017)
Whatever plot you have and whatever director takes over that plot, it would seem to be very hard to mess up Rob Brydon and Steve Coogan together. Chemistry is so high between them, both can work a plot so well and both can be so funny in different ways. All of that is presented in their latest film together A Trip to Spain.
Sure, author Stephen King work has had it's a share of good adaptations. The early 80's you got films like The Shining (1980), Cujo (1983), Christine (1983). That ended when the decade ended and the 90's came about.
