We’re coming down to the end of the year, and I don’t even think I have a definitive #1 movie of the year yet. As you’ll see once again by this group of reviews, everything I see lately seems to wind up in the B grade area. How many more chances are there for A grade movies?! Rogue One? La La Land? Assassin’s Creed? (haha just kidding on that last one)
One thing I am very much looking forward to at the end of this month, though, is that I will never have to see the trailers for Collateral Beauty or Passengers ever again. I don’t know how much they dumped into marketing these things, but I’ve seen both trailers before every single movie I’ve gone to, to the point that I’ve begrudgingly memorized the lines. “So why did you give up your life on Earth?” and “Howard doesn’t write letters to people, he writes to things.” are two lines I hope I never have to hear again once 2017 starts.
