Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOne of the movies opening this weekend is a comedy called Get Hard starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart.

“A comedy about a wrongfully convicted investment banker who prepares for prison life with the help of the man who washes his car.”

Now while most movies are just purely for entertainment and killing a few hours – what bugs me is the “tone” that is coming from some reviewers. Get a load of this statement: “Anyone with a low tolerance for politically incorrect stereotyping and lowbrow humor should sit this one out.”

I promise you more and more of this “trigger word” mentality along with “safe spaces” for SJW’s and their overly-sensitive pea brains is coming our way. While Huxley’s vision is more on target, Orwell had some truisms as well. Soon, you’ll be in trouble for your own private thoughts!

But as usual, we’ll check this out once it’s streaming (in HD).

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesHere we go again, another CGI “blockbuster” based on some book series (Divergent): Insurgent.

The plot, if that even matters anymore: “THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.”

While this is receiving mostly harsh reviews – it will most likely still be a net success for the movie studio. And just like Hunger Games – they’ll milk unsuspecting “fans” for yet another two-part sequel as well. (Note: have you noticed all the dystopian themes in movies as of late? As if they’re “prepping” in an entirely different way…)

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesWhile yet another remake (Cinderella) will most likely be “dominating” the box office this weekend, let’s look at another time-waster instead: Run All Night starring Liam Neeson. Shit, Liam Neeson is in like 100 movies a year. It must take them like a week to shoot all of his flicks (which are strangely almost the same plots).

“A thriller following a mob hit-man and his estranged son as they flee the wrath of a vengeful crime boss.”

At what point to people get tired of the same kind of setup?

Although, we did pickup the movie “Taken” (still haven’t watched yet), because we wanted to see if all the positive reviews were legit.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesSo what’s new this weekend? Chappie and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

For today, we’ll take a look at the futuristic technology “thriller” Chappie, which is about a robot which has it’s own “consciousness.”

“In the near future, crime is patrolled by an oppressive mechanized police force. But now, the people are fighting back. When one police droid, Chappie, is stolen and given new programming, he becomes the first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. As powerful, destructive forces start to see Chappie as a danger to mankind and order, they will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo and ensure that Chappie is the last of his kind.”

My take: While I’ll certainly wait until this is $0.01 on DVD – I find the concept interesting.

For one, in case you haven’t wondered – movies often are “prophetic.” Not really, but it’s apparent that the elite in Hollywood know what is coming soon (i.e., Minority Report – Targeted advertising, etc.) And this movie kind of portrays an already “mechanized” police force, and the very deep research into “Artificial Intelligence (A.I.).” So it can only make one wonder “what is next?”

However, there is always some kind of sensitivity embedded deep within many big-picture productions. Almost sickening, actually – that they “know” where humanity is heading, but still offer some kind of emotion and humility tucked into the final product. Kind of strange how the double-edged sword works sometimes.

(Note: That if and when “SHTF,” there will be little humanity exhibited until the dust settles… just MHO…)

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesNew this weekend is Focus, starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie.

“A con artiist (Will Smith) takes on an inexperienced apprentice in this crime comedy from the filmmaking duo behind Crazy Stupid Love, Glenn Ficarra and John Requa.”

For one, you might want to be leery about this movie. Because when you have THREE trailers, that paint a completely different “picture” for what the movie is about, it’s a warning sign. (Trailer #3 was the least painful – the original trailer was mind-numbing).

And the fact that very little “critic” commentary exists, probably means it sucks. Yet 20 million people were intrigued by the trailer – it will likely be considered a box-office “success.” Oh well.

Bow Tie Cinemas Hoboken NJ Movie TimesOpening this weekend is a flick called Hot Tub Time Machine 2. It’s the sequel to the 2010 Hot Tub Time Machine.

“Hot Tub Time Machine” follows a group of best friends who’ve become bored with their adult lives: Adam has been dumped by his girlfriend; Lou is a party guy who can’t find the party; Nick’s wife controls his every move; and video game-obsessed Jacob won’t leave his basement. After, a crazy night of drinking in a ski resort hot tub, the men wake up, heads’ pounding, in the year 1986. This is their chance to kick some past and change their futures – one will find a new love life, one will learn to stand up for himself with the ladies, one will find his mojo, and one will make sure he still exists!

Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink returns to the helm for this sequel set 10 years in the future, and starring Rob Corddry, Adam Scott, Clark Duke, and Craig Robinson.

These flicks may not be considered sophisticated, but sometimes a nonsensical diversion is just what the doctor ordered!
