What is happening in our world? Who is doing what? what is going on now? These are questions that will be answered. Enjoy.
9 Best Labor Day Movies 2018
It’s so damn hot, guys. This is that point in the summer where the pool just doesn’t matter anymore. The water is bath temperature. The sun is violent. Even the cicadas are screaming out of frustration for the heat. So what should you do? Go to the movies. As summer draws to an end, find something that brings you the joy that warm weather once did when it wasn’t absolutely blistering. There’s a treat for everyone.
Crazy Rich Asians
If anyone had any doubt about the staying power of Crazy Rich Asians, then two weekend box offices exceeding $30 million should stifle that. If you haven’t seen it yet, the best rom-com to show up on the scene in years will definitely still be in theaters. Go for the plot, stay for the outrageous set design and great music.
Surprisingly, there’s not a lot of ringers opening this weekend, but if any stand out above the crowd, it’s the John Cho-led thriller Searching. On the trail after his daughter’s disappearance, a mix of Internet-culture, mystery, and John Cho’s steely gaze puts this film in “worth watching” territory.
In Spike Lee’s most critically acclaimed film in years, Adam Driver stars alongside John David Washington as the two team up to take down a Colorado chapter of the Klan from the inside. Only problem is that one of them is black, which typically doesn’t jive too well with the KKK.
The Meg is still out there doing the most. If you find yourself torn on whether to get one last beach trip in or go to the movies, find a way to give yourself both. The giant shark movie will also make you proud you opted for the indoor experience as opposed to the one where you could get eaten by a shark. Am I trying to stoke unnecessary fears about sharks? No. But I am saying you’re not going to get eaten in a theater.
Mission: Impossible – Fallout
Hey, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. The Mission: Impossible franchise has been around long enough that it’s a solid bet if you’re looking for crazy stunts and an action movie you can depend on. Tom Cruise may not be the same age when the first film came out 22 years ago, but if you have any doubts about his ability to still kick ass, then you have another thing coming.
If spending Labor Day terrified is your kind of holiday fun, then Slender Man might be a good bet for you. Based on an Internet meme-turned-conspiracy, Slender Man gets in your head and let’s just say that no one is safe.
Pick of the Litter
Feeling a little more documentary-focused? Try Pick of the Litter which follows five puppies (one’s name is Poppet!) through the training needed for them to become service dogs. The training is rigorous and it takes a lot to make it, but you can be certain that by the end, you’ll be rooting for all of the good boys and girls.
The Peter Berg action movie starring Ronda Rousey and Mark Wahlberg had stiff competition against Crazy Rich Asians, but it’s still out there if you’re all tapped out on a good time in Singapore. Mind you, this movie about a CIA operative does start in Southeast Asia, but that’s pretty much where the similarities stop.
And of course, if you’re just looking for a good end of summer cry, try out Christopher Robin. Christopher promised Pooh way back when that he’d never forget about him, but of course, adulthood happens and people get distracted screaming at each other on Twitter. Fortunately, Pooh and the gang is back to bring Christopher Robin back to his senses, even if he is an adult now.
