Girls Trip (2017)
Run Time: 122 min | IMDb: 6.2/10
Girls Trip is that rare, raucous female comedy that manages to pair brilliant comedic performances with a nuanced, and heartfelt story. The premise of the film rests with four women who became close in college but drifted apart as the years wore on, reuniting for one hell of a good time in New Orleans. Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and a scene-stealing Tiffany Haddish wade through cheating husbands, wild parties, and plenty of friendship drama while living it up in the Big Easy. And yes, that grapefruit scene is as side-splitting as everyone says.
Atomic Blonde (2017)
Run Time: 115 min | IMDb: 6.7/10
This spy thriller is set in Cold War Era Berlin and sees Charlize Theron playing a badass spy tasked with retrieving a sensitive information. Theron’s MI-6 agent Lorraine Broughton is brought in to investigate the death of her former partner and to deliver a list of double agents to her bosses in London. Of course, things aren’t what they seem, and Lorraine must take plenty of punches and shed a bit of blood in the name of God and country.
