It’s a long weekend, people! Time to have a barbecue, spend time blowing things up, and eating more hot dogs than any single person should consume in a month. Don’t forget the cotton candy and those skewers with chocolate-covered fruit. It’s fruit! How could it be bad for you?
Top it off with about a gallon of full-flavored Pepsi and maybe six roasted marshmallows.
Maybe a movie in a cool, darkened theater sounds like a good idea afterward. No popcorn, please. I’m…fine.
Gildshire has you covered. Sit back, Bunky. Enjoy a good movie. Digest.
Terminator Genisys: It is said you shouldn’t put a retread tire on your sports car. It can’t handle the demands. The same can be said for the Terminator franchise. Arnold was “The Man” in his heyday, but we all get old and lined. The story creaks as well. Rotten Tomatoes 25, Gildshire 1.1
Magic Mike XXL: Yeah, she likes a good romantic drama. She likes a comedy. But beefcake is a sure-fire winner, baby! Three years after Mike was truly magic in his own naked, ripply-muscled way he comes back for a farewell tour. It’s fun for the ladies and fun, in a different way, for the guys. There were some free tickets floating around Gildshire’s offices. But the girls snapped them up in a New York millisecond. Rotten Tomatoes 61, Gildshire Guys 3.5, Gildshire Girls 6.
Amy: Amy Winehouse had a voice made of honey. But her personal life wasn’t quite as sweet. Her rise to prominence and ultimate tragic fall makes this movie about her life well worth seeing. Tragedy, when it is real, needs to be acknowledged and felt as a cautionary tale, if nothing else. Rotten Tomatoes 98, Gildshire 4.4
Cartel Land: A story about two vigilante groups fighting drug cartels, Cartel Land educates us about a very real war being waged in secret. Matthew Heineman wrote and directed this stark look into a shadow world. Kids! Don’t do drugs! Rotten Tomatoes 95, Gildshire 4.1
That’s the lineup. Stay cool, be safe, and bring some of that potato salad to me. I’m stuck without a car. My wife took it to see Magic Mike…again.
