January this year crawls to a close with only a smattering of new Blu-ray releases, none of them too exciting (in my book). The most notable is also the most ironically titled movie of last year.
One year ago at this time, ‘The Martian’ tore up the box office. Even the combined debut totals for this weekend’s two biggest releases couldn’t come close to matching that movie’s numbers.
This weekend’s new movies are quite peculiar. Each title feels like it should be a huge studio-backed event, yet not one of them seems to be receiving much in the way attention or promotion.
‘Masterminds’ is just a little bit too weird for its own good. That’ll be exactly what makes the proud few who fall for this collection of eccentricity to fall deeply and what will drive everyone else away.
