Movie theatres have reopened for business. We’re here to help you figure out what’s the greatest value for your money at the box office when cinematic films return to the big screen in comparison to streaming services and digital rental merchants.

With the start of a new year and a new COVID version, it’s a good idea to keep your spending in check, especially if there are some higher-budget releases entering theatres soon.

Of course, you should use your own discretion when deciding whether or not to return to the movies, but an increasing number of previously immunised moviegoers are eager to return to the theatre. The good news is that we’re back and ready to help.

Since theatrical distribution is in flux, there are some large recent blockbusters as well as an assortment of Oscar-winning, long-running and independent productions, as well as oldies booked—depending on whatever theatre you go to. It’s fortunate, therefore, that there have been so many excellent films released recently this year that you shouldn’t have any trouble discovering something worthwhile to see.

  • The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

10 Most Popular Movies Right Now

Nicolas Cage’s on-screen and off-screen presence is unmatched. Since the early 1980s, Cage has given viewers quotable nuggets and memorable moments, establishing a cult around himself. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent director Tom Gormican praises Cage’s presence. The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent combines several stories.

Cage and super-fan Javi (Pedro Pascal) have such evident chemistry that they elevate the genre. At times, it’s a straight-faced spy-thriller, with Cage exploits that recall National Treasure and The Rock. The Unbearable Weight’s self-awareness stands out. Cage channels audience-favorite caricatures. His long-haired alter-ego “Nicky” (billed as Nicolas Kim Coppola, Cage’s true name) evokes his 1990s Con Air/Wild at Heart image.

Imagine Adaptation with machismo. Cage plays Nicky to his maximum limits, employing a wonderfully exaggerated cadence to give Nick motivational speeches about regaining his popularity. Even while The Unbearable Weight pokes fun at its formula, it nonetheless follows it. Indeed, many settings and action sequences have bland, predictable CGI, and the dialogue is stiff.

The Unbearable Weight works despite its flaws. If you’re a Cage fan, you’ll love the movies allusions. This is an emotional, entertaining, humorous, captivating picture, even if you’re not.

  • Downton Abbey: A New Era

Do you need to have watched Downton Abbey to enjoy A New Era? “I’d rather think so,” remark the Crawleys. It’s a present for the fans. The previous two years have been difficult for everyone, so escaping to 1920s England and France is a treat. We still love Downton. Lax pace attracts viewers. Dowager Countess’ zingers. Upstairs-downstairs antics.

Mary (Michelle Dockery) and Edith’s sibling rivalry. Mary says, “Let’s hope it’s still there” when Edith says she’ll utilise her intellect again at work. The Crawleys and their servants are a well-groomed, well-dressed soap opera. Two hours with them was a delight. Music and aerial images take you to another period.

A New Era doesn’t ruin well-known story aspects. No relationships end. Characters aren’t separated solely to fill time. Unlike previous sequels and TV-based movies (looking at you, Sex and the City), these characters stay loyal to form. A New Era closes with the remaining relationships resolved and a narrative twist I won’t divulge. Julian Fellowes has more Downton stories to tell. I’d watch for years to come.

  • The Lost City

10 Most Popular Movies Right Now

After the death of her husband, smartypants archaeologist-turned-paperback-romance-author Loretta Sage (Sandra Bullock) doesn’t want to leave her house, let alone go on a book tour at the behest of her publisher/publicist Beth (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) and painfully millennial social media manager Allison (Patti Harrison, a star).

Loretta dons a borrowed sparkly purple costume and fakes a grin onstage with Alan (Channing Tatum), the well-meaning but dimwitted (and gorgeous) himbo cover model who depicts Loretta’s book’s hero, Dash McMahon. The explosive, action-packed sequences are fun and essential to the adventure genre, but what sets The Lost City apart from recent, more tired blockbuster adventure/comedy fare (looking at you, Uncharted) are the humorously human moments that lead to a genuine connection between Loretta, Alan, and the audience.

Adam and Aaron Nee rework adventure/rom-com pillars to locate previously hidden jewels through personal events. They are conscious of the clichés being used (stupid guy/smart lady romance, Loretta’s frame narrative, treasure-hunting villain), but they approach them with a freshness that engages the audience in the characters. The Lost City follows standard genre rhythms, but an outstanding cast, great sense of comedy, and new writing make it a gem.

  • The Bob’s Burgers Movie

The Bob’s Burgers Movie is heartwarming and soulful. Loren Bouchard and Bernard Derriman turn the Belchers’ blue-collar experiences into a feature-length film without losing its unique sauce. It’s similar to The Simpsons Movie in that both stretched a 30-minute film into a blockbuster version. Bob and friends create a meaty surprise for fans that welcomes newcomers.

The film follows grillmaster Bob Belcher (H. Jon Benjamin), his energetic wife Linda (John Roberts), and their three children, Louise (Kristen Schaal), Tina (Dan Mintz), and Gene (Eugene Mirman). Bob’s panics when their loan payment is refused; monthly bills must be paid in seven days or they lose the business.

Wonder Wharf’s forthcoming festival should bring in lots of foot traffic for sales, but a pipe break limits entrance to their storefront. There’s a corpse. Has Linda’s “Big Mom Energy” been matched? The Bob’s Burgers Movie’s animation features three-dimensional, pop-off-the-screen landscapes. Theatrical movie budgets boost colour saturation and outline clarity.

That doesn’t mean the “crudeness” of the circular cartoon creatures is lost; Bouchard’s artists merely distinguish between weekly small-screen releases and in-theater projections. It answers the question of how Bob’s Burgers will separate in-home streaming and ticket prices.

The clarity is clearer, Bob’s gourmet inventions are better, and environmental details more exquisite. We bite into a multidimensional sensation that’s sweet, salty, comforting, and ludicrous. Bouchard crafts the animated carny musical of his dreams, which promotes the Belchers’ legacy as American middle-class darlings who inspire optimism through fart comedy, menu wordplay, and amusing voices. As a fan? I’m happy and full—a satisfied consumer.

  • Happening

10 Most Popular Movies Right Now

Leaked Supreme Court decision foretells the demise of Roe v. Wade, shocking many. For individuals living in states that have increasingly reduced abortion access, the planned reversal of the 1973 Supreme Court ruling seems inevitable. Most “red” states have implemented heartbeat laws, parental permission, insurance limits, and waiting periods. If Roe is reversed, 20 states would outlaw abortion immediately.

Several American films have depicted the difficulties and stigma of legal abortion access (Palindromes, Obvious Child, If These Walls Could Talk, Citizen Ruth, The Abortion Diaries, Never Rarely Sometimes Always), but Audrey Diwan’s 1960s-set French abortion drama is unique. After this tragedy, Happening feels hauntingly prescient. It depicts how women have suffered—and will continue to suffer—for the right to make their own choices.

Based on Annie Ernaux’s 2000 novel/memoir hybrid of the same name, Happening is a claustrophobic account of a woman’s pursuit for an illegal abortion to further her education. In 1963 post-war France, the practise was criminalised, therefore Anne (Anamaria Vartolomei) risked 20 years in jail if detected.

She’s discreet yet determined in her provider quest. Vartolomei’s energetic performance evokes protracted worry through a pursed lip and wrinkled forehead. Happening shows a dark future through a woman’s wounds. These scars stay fresh and raw, ready to imprint themselves on a new generation born of the same desperation. While Diwan may not have intended her picture to be so relevant—set it’s in a “dark period” for French feminism—American audiences will sweat and suffer through this awful, unavoidably forward-looking scenario.

  • Ambulance

Ambulance, Michael Bay’s 15th film, seems as entelechial as Bad Boys II since Bay is in his prime. Ambulance is as pristine as a Michael Bay picture can get, despite its cast of Angelenos. We’re in Ambulance in 10 minutes. Will Sharp (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) needs money to pay his wife’s medical expenses and care for their baby, so he joins his adopted brother Danny (Jake Gyllenhaal) on a bank robbery that goes awry. They murder a cop (Jackson White) and commandeer his ambulance, inhabited by the “greatest” EMT in L.A., Cam Thompson (Eiza González) – just one more embittered soul in the City of Angels.

Danny loses control and Will accepts his fate as the progeny of a renowned bank-robbing maniac as the LAPD descends on the stolen ambulance, commanded by Captain Monroe (Garret Dillahunt), a guy who festishizes the cops sufficiently that Bay doesn’t have to. FBI Agent Clark (Keir O’Donnell) is accepted into Monroe’s inner circle since he went to college with Danny. Michael Bay believes officers must be psychopaths to face a psychopathic environment in Bad Boys and Bad Boys II.

In Ambulance, as much as his vision of the LAPD includes sophisticated surveillance and world-killing artillery to rival the most elite military power of the U.S. government—making it all look really fucking cool—he also makes sure to interrupt an especially destructive chase sequence (as he once had Martin Lawrence declare the events happening on screen obligatory and nothing else) to have Monroe’s left hand, a gun, go off.

Later, explosives and gunfire kill more police officers, scattering bodies. Bay counters Monroe’s rejection of so many flagrantly wasted public monies by blowing up half the LAPD in a display that screams acclaim. Michael Bay may no longer see the value in unleashing psychotic cops on a psychopathic world.

In Bay’s L.A., there are no good folks or evil guys, simply those who “rescue my life” and others without. Bay’s “haves” and “have-nots” distinction: Trauma survivors and non-survivors. Randazzo (Randazzo Marc) says, “L.A. drivers! Mamalukes” This city of impoverished mamalukes has more style than we deserve.

  • Crimes Of the Future

10 Most Popular Movies Right Now

Cronenberg’s newest is a return to (de)form after two decades of dialed-back drama. Crimes of the Future excites by suturing the art world’s meaty guts as an ambitious sci-fi noir, despite a few errant narrative tools. In Crimes of the Future (1970), a womanless, virus-ravaged civilization develops inventive diseases.

In a civilization ruled by fetishists and rushing towards a disastrous biological reaction, new organs are invented (and occasionally revered). Cronenberg’s 2022 do-over on organic novelty in a disintegrating civilization isn’t a remake, but it tackles his longtime interests. Thanks to fresh subtextual success and a simpler, more approachable language, it succeeds (despite the full-frontal nudity and graphic autopsies).

This Cronenberg film contains colour, diegetic sound, and stars. It has conventional dramatic pace and cutting-edge effects. The characters now talk in a detached, psychology-textbook-meets-FM-2030-essay way, while the camera digs deep into the innards that interest us. Tenser’s intestines (Viggo Mortensen). He and Caprice (Lea Seydoux) are neo-organ performers. Saul builds, Caprice cuts. Our degradation of the earth, with its plastic-filled oceans and polluted air, permitted this. Mankind is numbed. Clubs and streets have knife fights. Commonplace is recreational surgery. Some only feel discomfort when sleeping.

Crimes’ metaphor has many sharp edges, including this subliminal agony. Art adapts to this nerve-dead reality. Also, humans. Saul can squeeze out ugly new lumps of viscera, which intrigues National Organ Registry investigators Wippet (Don McKellar) and Timlin (Kristen Stewart) and radical transhumanist Lang (Scott Speedman). The trio blends Cronenberg’s dystopian bureaucracy and subversive multimedia. When we wreck things, fresh cogs will go into old machinery and new rebels will join old resistances.

Crimes of the Future demonstrates newcomers that an elderly master can still dissect with the best. Crimes of the Future represents a pioneer finally seeing the horizon. Cronenberg’s picture of the future recognises that the true death of an artist and the death of civilization stem from the same terrible inability to innovate, even if it’s rehabilitation.

  • Top Gun: Maverick

Tom Cruise’s mission hasn’t changed much since Mission: Impossible—Fallout, but it hasn’t gotten more religious either. In Top Gun: Maverick, the sequel to Tony Scott’s 1986 original, Tom Cruise plays Captain Pete “Maverick” Mitchell, a man trapped in the past who refuses to advance his career or do much of anything but prove he’s the world’s best pilot and mourn his best friend, Goose (Anthony Edwards).

Tom Cruise is the only show industry scion left to put his body in mind-numbing peril to prove it can be done and to teach a younger generation what movies and stardom can be. Do. The more current action pictures feature synthetic bodies breaking apart, the more Tom Cruise uses his films as altars for his exquisite flesh. Joseph Kosinski is the right director for Cruise’s sequel. As with Kosinski’s Tron: Legacy, Maverick exists to update an IP that only works in the past.

For Top Gun, this means transforming Scott’s vision of sweaty beach volleyball and military extravaganza into a solemn IMAX adventure, moving from Reagan’s America to a world without Maverick. His superiors tell him, “The future’s coming, and you’re not in it.” Every new Tom Cruise vehicle must be his method of dealing with it. Kosinski’s dogfights are clean, extraordinary works of cinematography, economical and circling recognised space, but subject to occasional turmoil. Reuniting rapidly.

If Scott’s action was a mishmash of motion never designed to cohere, keeping the American dream just that, Kosinski is determined to letting the viewer feel it. With Claudio Miranda, he uses symmetry to keep the audience engaged. A dogfight, resembling a beach scene, suddenly materialised discreetly in the big theatre, and I gasped.

  • The Northman

10 Most Popular Movies Right Now

Robert Eggers’ The Northman is a savage, no-holds-barred thriller of retribution. Eggers and Icelandic poet Sjón co-wrote the picture, which is ever-arresting and entrenched in the director’s predilection for period realism.

The Northman is visually gorgeous and painstakingly choreographed. The Northman’s mythology seems new and familiar. Fjölnir (Claes Bang) kills King Aurvandill (Ethan Hawke) and claims his throne and queen (Nicole Kidman). Aurvandill appoints his son Amleth (Oscar Novak) as his heir before committing fratricide, making him his uncle’s next target. Amleth sails a wooden boat through Ireland’s stormy waves, shouting, “I will revenge you, father.” I’ll save mom. “Fjölnir, I’ll kill you.”

Years later, Amleth (played by a strong yet modest Alexander Skarsgrd) is a cruel warrior amid a tribe of Viking berserkers, pillaging towns in a stupor. The Northman is an approachable, compelling Viking tale full of savagery and fate. The picture feels less Eggers-like than his previous efforts, though. It has a larger ensemble, but fewer unbroken takes and less atmosphere. The Northman eschews Eggers’ passion in New England folktales but incorporates his love of woods and ocean tides.

The Northman combines Eggers’ established approach (outstanding performances, exact historical touchstones, hypnotic folklore) with prolonged action scenes. It’s funny, surprising, and intellectual. It wouldn’t be unexpected if this was Eggers’ final work. The Northman isn’t as revelatory as The Witch or as exciting as The Lighthouse.

What the picture lacks in Eggers’ filmic ambitions, it makes up for as an impenetrable Viking retribution story. The Northman is unequalled by extant epics and probably by those to come, inspired by a director in his prime.

  • Everything Everywhere All At Once

Evelyn Wang (Michelle Yeoh), a cynical laundry proprietor, may be implicated in tax fraud. Her mundane life is thrown into chaos when her husband, Waymond (Ke Huy Quan), or a version of him, tells her about the multiverse in an elevator. He says that Jobu Tupaki is building a universe-destroying force that only Evelyn can stop. Evelyn unwillingly enters the universe. There are endless worlds that include everything imaginable.

To gain other skills, imagine a reality in which you have them, such as super-strong pinky fingers or knife-fighting prowess. (Imagine it, it’s real.) The next 140 minutes are loaded with deep, sophisticated science, vivid setpieces, and visuals from dreams too abstract to explain. Everything is like its title—a lot to take in. Everything is underpinned by a single emotional throughline. The film has both emotional maturity and interesting themes and graphics (yes, including a giant butt plug and raccoon chef). Yeoh’s understated and unsentimental portrayal carries the theme of love and family.

Everything’s emotional throughline is Evelyn’s bond with her family. Andy and Brian Le crafted mesmerising, vertiginous action sequences like a ballet. These passages also recall Yeoh’s involvement in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The directors employ flashing lights and quickly shifting light sources to disorient the spectator.

They use over-the-top visuals like a skull exploding into confetti or a butt-naked guy flying toward the camera. Paul Rogers’ excellent editing makes transitions between verses and aspect ratios smooth. Can you possibly have everything everywhere at once? I’ll let you find the characters’ replies, but I’m sure Daniels would say yes.
