Maggie’s Plan

What we know

The lovely Greta Gerwig plays a young woman who falls in love with a married man – so why, a few years later, does she have to hatch a plan to get him back with his ex-wife?

What the critics say

  • “What [director Rebecca Miller] has done is slyly subvert a ubiquitous paradigm. She turns a standard male fantasy inside out. The movie, after all, is not about John’s self-esteem. It’s about Maggie’s plan, which is to say about the comedy of her efforts to manage and anticipate the unruly logic of her own desires and everybody else’s.” - New York Times
  • Maggie’s Plan doesn’t quite gel, but it’s very enjoyable, and it has a solid emotional core.” - Vulture

What’s it rated?

  • RottenTomatoes:
  • IMDB: 6.7/10

The Legend of Tarzan

What we know

The not unattractive Alexandar Skarsgaard and Margot Robbie play a husband and wife – only the husband just happens to be a certain Tarzan. Turns out he was living in London – and is happy out until he is called back to his former home in the jungle.

What the critics say

  • “Ultimately, this movie is pointless and utterly unmemorable—it doesn’t even have “well, it’s kind of stupid, but totally Netflixable in a year or so” going for it. All the actors deserve better, and so does the audience.” - The Mary Sue
  • “What transpires is an adventure story without the adventure, as Jane — despite vowing she’s not going to be a damsel in distress — is immediately kidnapped by the nefarious Leon Rom (Waltz eerily convincing as a man who’ll do anything for a big pile of cash). So Tarzan and George set off in pursuit. And that’s pretty much it.” - Empire

The Neon Demon

What we know

Nicholas Winding Refn (Drive) is back with this sort of kinky horror set in the Los Angeles fashion world. Stars Elle Fanning.

What the critics say

  • “ As Jesse’s star rises and those around her begin seeing her as a threat (and become disturbingly obsessed with her), it becomes less and less clear whether Jessie truly is an innocent lamb now being preyed upon by wolves or a wolf dressed in sheep’s clothing…”- Screen Rant
  • “The Neon Demon” is a tease. It starts off as a relatively scannable, user-friendly thriller, but it turns out to be a movie made by a macabre surrealist gross-out prankster.” - Variety
