Favorite Thriller Movie

This week at the movies, we’ve got a stranded spaceman (The Martian, starring Matt Damon and Jessica Chastain) and a disconcerted FBI agent (Sicario, starring Emily Blunt and Benicio Del Toro). What do the critics have to say?


The Martian (2015) 91%

Ridley Scott made his name with Alien and Blade Runner, two of sci-fi cinema’s most cultishly adored — and endlessly pondered — classics. Critics say The Martian finds Scott examining more hopeful territory, and the result is an awe-inspiring adventure that explores vast ideas while staying grounded in very human emotional territory. While investigating the surface of Mars, astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) is caught up in a violent storm and presumed dead by his departing crewmates. Utilizing whatever he has on hand, Mark must attempt to survive until NASA can figure out a way to bring him home. The pundits say the Certified Fresh The Martian is visually stunning, scientifically credible, and immensely likable, thanks in large part to Damon’s funny, touching performance.


Sicario (2015) 92%

As the old showbiz saying goes, if you want to send a message, call Western Union. Critics say Sicario takes a different tack; it’s a white-knuckle action picture with outstanding performances that doubles as a blistering critique of the war on drugs. Emily Blunt stars as a tough, no-nonsense FBI agent who joins a Federal task force charged with taking on the drug cartels. Our heroine soon discovers that the team leader and his mysterious partner may have a hidden agenda. The pundits say the Certified Fresh Sicario is breathlessly tense and terrifically acted by Blunt, Josh Brolin, and Benicio Del Toro, and it offers further proof that Denis Villeneuve is one of contemporary cinema’s most distinctive directors.

 


 What’s Hot on TV

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah: Season 1 (2015) 78%

Trevor Noah‘s confidence and likability augurs well for The Daily Show, even if his edgier jokes are hit-or-miss.


The Grinder: Season 1 (2015) 93%

The Grinder‘s humor is buoyed by Rob Lowe and Fred Savage‘s chemistry as a hilarious new odd couple.


Grandfathered: Season 1 (2015) 71%

John Stamos is as handsome and charming as ever, but Grandfathered‘s jokes are tired and schmaltzy.


Scream Queens: Season 1 (2015) 68%

Too tasteless for mainstream viewers and too silly for horror enthusiasts, Scream Queens fails to satisfy.


Dr. Ken: Season 1 (2015) 7%

Somebody please get Dr. Ken a doctor; seeking any signs of life. Or humor.

Emmy nominations are out for last season, but it’s already time for a new one. Television continues to rival, and sometimes surpass, the quality and success of film industry releases, with more networks than we ever thought possible 20 years ago. And, with the growing number of cable networks, we witness the capability of catering to more adult-oriented content. This fall, we will continue to see television grow, for better and for worse. Which new shows will achieve Fresh, or even Certified Fresh, status? Which will quickly go Rotten? And which of your favorite returning shows made the cut this year? Here’s the list as we know it, and we’ll continue to update it as premiere dates continue to be broadcast.
