There have been some great movies at the cineplex, like “Zootopia” and “Deadpool,” and some real stinkers. Gerard Butler, get thee to acting school or a better agent, pronto!
All I’ve got to say is that “Gods of Egypt” was the worst film I’ve seen in ages. There was a huge backlash over racial miscasting in this film (Butler and Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau played uncle and nephew gods, respectively), yet any Egyptian or African actor worth his salt was probably breathing a sigh of relief that he wasn’t involved once he saw the final result.

“Mr. Right” (R)
Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Anna Kendrick; Pitch Perfect) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup. She babbles, parties like a monster, cooks everything in sight – and is looking to do something terrible when she meets Francis (Sam Rockwell, “The Way Way Back”). To anyone else, Francis’s approach would come across as creepy, but Martha can’t help but be intrigued.
They seem a perfect match: she’s bananas, he’s bananas … except he’s a deadly sort of bananas. He’s a professional assassin. Francis is a hitman with a cause: he unexpectedly kills the people ordering the hits. Just as Martha begins to realize her new beau wasn’t joking when he said he had to step out for a moment to shoot someone, things start heating up for Francis. His services are solicited by a dubious client who’s being sought by an equally dubious FBI agent (Tim Roth, “Pulp Fiction,” “Reservoir Dogs”). As the bodies pile up, Martha needs to decide whether to flee or join in the mayhem.
