THE CONJURING 2 || Although this particular haunting was just covered in a terrible English mini-series recently, the first “Conjuring” was so good, it will be impossible to pass this one up. Focused on the Enfield Haunting and dubbed the most recorded haunting of all-time, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reprise their roles as Lorraine and Ed Warren. James Wan returns to direct.
NOW YOU SEE ME 2 || The first film was just good enough to be enjoyable, but “Now You See Me 2” will have to do a lot more now, to even get to the same level. My biggest complaints with the first film was that for a film about slight of hand, the film could have used a little less CGI and little more practical effects. Almost everyone returns for this sequel, except for Isla Fisher who is replaced by Lizzy Caplan. Also, Daniel Radcliffe join the fray.
WARCRAFT || Of all the big budget movies that are released in any given year, more often than not, there is always some barometer of interest in any particular film. But with “Warcraft,” I have heard absolutely nothing. Not a peep. Which leads me to believe that no one actually wants to see this film. And for a film based on the wildly popular “World Of Warcraft,” that comes as a shock. Perhaps even those fans can see through the paper-thin plot and been-there-done-that attitude that surrounds this entire production.
