SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS, ALLEGEDLY 7.6.2018

Here are this week’s new releases as per Rotten Tomatoes.

The First Purge(2018) 46%
The Purge franchise finally goes the prequel route, this time tracing the origins of the national day of mayhem that allows any crime to be committed for a 12-hour period with no legal consequences.
Directed By: Gerard McMurray
Ruth’s Review: This actually comes out on July 4th. I like the franchise but they need to breath new life into it, like they did with the Fast and the Furious. This seems a tad Tokyo Drift-esque.
Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Michael Douglas return for this post-Ifinity War Marvel sequel, in which thief-turned-superhero Scott Lang takes on a partner and struggles to balance his dual life.
Directed By: Peyton Reed
Ruth’s Review: Enough with this comic book shit. Also, I can’t stand Paul Rudd’s face. It is very punchable.
LaKeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, and Armie Hammer star in rapper Boots Riley’s directorial debut, a surreal social satire about a black telemarketer whose career is propelled by the efficacy of his “white voice.”
Directed By: Boots Riley
Ruth’s Review: Great! Just what we need, another movie to teach us about racism. Really groundbreaking stuff here.
