The weekend is close, and that implies that you might have a chilled weekend, and also new films for you to see.

However, which is a perfect requirement watch, and are there any you ought to maintain a strategic distance from?

Let’s  investigate.

Hardcore Henry 

YouTube / STX Entertainment – via Iframely

Ratings:

Critics review:

  • “You could go see “Hardcore Henry” — or you could gulp down a pint of vodka, load in “Grand Theft Auto,” then strap the TV to your face and throw yourself down the stairs.” – nydailynews.
  • “Billed as the first-ever action movie filmed entirely from the hero’s first-person viewpoint, Hardcore blasts along like a supercharged computer-game shoot-em-up, bursting with sick humor and splatterpunk violence.” – Hollywood Reporter.

Midnight Special

YouTube / Movieclips Trailers – via Iframely

Ratings:

Critic Review:

  • “It all sounds terribly murky, but few filmmakers are as gifted at making you want to peer through the murk.” – Boston Globe.
  • “What started with a gripping premise slackens and goes limp.” – Globe and Mail. 

Dheepan

YouTube / StudiocanalUK – via Iframely

Ratings:

Critics reviews:

  • “A sympathetic, inquisitive portrait of the immigrant experience in Europe.” – Time Out.
  • “Though it takes a jarring left turn at the end, this bears the same immaculate plot construction and tonal consistency of Audiard’s previous films, augmented by sensitive, superlative performances from Jesuthasan and Srinivasan.” – Chicago Reader.

My name is Emily 

YouTube / EclipsePicturesIE – via Iframely

Ratings:

Critics reviews:

  • “There’s a poetry to My Name is Emily. Not just in the words – it permeates the imagery and music as well. That should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with Simon Fitzmaurice’s work – his short films won all around them, lauded as lyrical and beautiful. His stream-of-consciousness film-making evokes a response on myriad levels.” –  JayConnors.
