The weekend movies are here, but are you on vacation?
For the last weekend of July, we see a small lull in blockbusters. It may be because we are deep into vacation season and this week may traditionally not do as well. Even still, we have the Top 5 ready for your scrutinizing eyes. One of the most interesting is the lead trailer for the sequel to "An Inconvenient Truth." It is such a beautifully shot trailer and brings up a topic we often ignore. Global Warming is real. The denial of which is ludicrous, most likely those who sacrifice the survival of the planet over financial gains. Find some other, less heavy films for those needing just a little entertainment. Enjoy!
1. AN INCONVENIENT SEQUEL: TRUTH TO POWER
A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Former Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world to train an army of activists and influence international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes -- in moments both private and public, funny and poignant -- as he pursues the inspirational idea that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion.
2. ATOMIC BLONDE
Sensual and savage, Lorraine Broughton is the most elite spy in MI6, an agent who's willing to use all of her lethal skills to stay alive during an impossible mission. With the Berlin Wall about to fall, she travels into the heart of the city to retrieve a priceless dossier and take down a ruthless espionage ring. Once there, she teams up with an embedded station chief to navigate her way through the deadliest game of spies.
3. THE EMOJI MOVIE
Hidden inside a smartphone, the bustling city of Textopolis is home to all emojis. Each emoji has only one facial expression, except for Gene, an exuberant emoji with multiple expressions. Determined to become "normal" like the other emojis, Gene enlists the help of his best friend Hi-5 and a notorious code breaker called Jailbreak. During their travels through the other apps, the three emojis discover a great danger that could threaten their phone's very existence.
4. PERSON TO PERSON
Follows a variety of New York characters as they navigate personal relationships and unexpected problems over the course of one day. They grapple with the mundane, the unexpected, and the larger questions permeating their lives.
5. FROM THE LAND OF THE MOON
In 1950s France, Gabrielle is a passionate, free-spirited woman who is in a loveless marriage and falls for another man when she is sent away to the Alps to treat her kidney stones. Gabrielle yearns to free herself and run away with André.
