Four different productions will come to theaters this weekend to demonstrate that it takes a battle to build upon who you really are.
No, “Guardians of the Galaxy” isn’t the weirdest production that Marvel has for the world. When a car accident mangled the hands of surgeon Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), he embarks on a journey to heal and becomes a part of an eons-old mystical war.
After prolonged controversy, Mel Gibson returns to the director’s chair for this inspiring tale of Pfc. Desmond T. Doss, who fought in the Battle of Okinawa without firing a single bullet. Based on the outstanding true story of the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor.
This kaleidoscopic animated film from the creators of “Shrek” brings viewers into a world of happiness, something that the titular characters have in spades—but that changes when the trolls are threatened by the Bergens who consider them as a source of food. Featuring new music from Justin Timberlake.
Limited Attention: “Loving”
Mildred Jeter (Ruth Negga) and Richard Loving (Joel Edgerton) love each other, but their interracial marriage places them under the community’s scrutiny. Both are arrested and imprisoned in Virginia in 1958, which later ignited a fight that demonstrated the power of love and equality. Based on a true story and the court case Loving v. Virginia.
Let us know what you’ll be seeing, and stay tuned for the next “Reel Mood of the Week!”
