Movie Review: Unfriended: Dark Web 'Predictable and generic'

#Itmovie Is Back On Top

Despite his usual power at the box office, Tom Cruise could not overcome a resurgent, scary clown as It rose from the sewer once more to regain the chart's crown in the States after being knocked down last weekend by those Kingsman. The horror movie added $17.3 million to its total, according to studio estimates.

The Cruiser's latest, sort-of-true crime tale American Made, wasn't far behind, earning $17.06 million, so there's a slim chance things could change when the final figures come in on Monday. But it appears It has lost none of its drawing power, and that it's not finished snapping records. American Made made do with second place, while Kingsman: The Golden Circle slipped to third on $17 million. The Lego Ninjago Movie actually moved up a place this weekend, earning $12 million. Rounding out the top five was poorly performing thriller remake Flatliners, which was sent to the morgue by reviewers and didn't find much life among audiences, launching with $6.7 million.

Tennis pic Battle Of The Sexes expanded its screen count and jumped into the top 10 at 6 with $3.4 million, while American Assassin continued to drop, falling from fourth to seventh on $3.3 million. Home Again was eighth, earning $1.7 million, ahead of little-advertised thriller Til Death Do Us Part was largely DOA on $1.5 million in ninth. And finally, the controversial mother! fell to 10th from fifth place, taking in $1 million.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…

Outrageously fun and deeply affecting, Swiss Army Man is a gonzo buddy comedy that is the feature film debut of acclaimed music video directors Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan (collectively known as DANIELS, and responsible for the visionary “Turn Down For What” video, among many others). Bursting with limitless creativity in both form and content, Swiss Army Man goes from the absurd to the emotional to the whimsical to the profound and back again.
