Eh, pass on both. I've seen a few advertisements for Gretel & Hansel and I'm passing on it over it being one of my least favorite fairy tales in general, and haven't heard of The Rhythm Section but I just looked it up and it doesn't really interest me. Interested to see how well they'll do though.

Actually not surprised that The Rhythm Section is so low on the list, kind of surprised that Gretel & Hansel is as high as it is (though I figured it wouldn't be in the no.1 or 2 spot) especially since there's already a few movies based on the fairy tale since the story itself is predictable.

As for Birds of Prey, I'm mixed on this one. From the ads I've seen while in Vegas it looks interesting and something I'd want to see on the big screen (and it has Black Canary, a DC character I do like), but I'm not really a DC fan and I'm worried that if I do end up seeing it in theaters I'll probably get bored of it. I think maybe for this one I'll wait until it comes on STARZ (or whatever channel it'll come on first).

To those who haven't seen The Rhythm Section i highly recommend it,( i think the trailer sucks for the most part) . i would say so far its film of the year even over bad boys for life which i'm also kind high on because i'm a sorta a big will smith fan (id4 MIB franchise and the wild wild west) and a fan of Kate del Castillo ( ingobernable on netflix).

but to each there own i guess

Fantasy Island looks waaay different from the TV show, though I guess to be fair it's supposed to be a horror take on the classic series but I'm not sure how to feel about that tbh. There were some dark moments on the show sure, but I don't know if I want to see a full on horror film of it. I'll say pass, especially since so far the reviews I've seen of it are pretty negative.

Also pass on The Photograph, simply not interesting to me.

As for the Sonic movie I'll pass seeing it in theaters, but I'll probably give it a chance whenever it comes on TV; though reviews seemed to be mixed so far. I'm not the biggest fan of the Sonic series (though there are some characters I do like, which sadly don't seem to be in the movie at all), but I'm at least somewhat interested in seeing how this adaptation goes.

Call of the Wild is one I definitely want to see. Harrison Ford is one of my favorite actors so that certainly helps, and I loved the book so I want to see how well this version does. (the 1935 movie is nothing like the book, and I've only seen parts of the one that came out in '72 or 3, I do want to find the 1923 silent movie and watch that one too though, and the '97 one is supposed to be the best version by far so I want to see that one as well)

Pass on Brahms: The Boy II, I literally don't remember much about The Boy so I most likely won't get enjoyment out of this one.

Glad to see The Invisible Man at the top, I want to see it just to see how it compares to the 1933 movie, plus I wouldn't mind seeing a more modern take on it.

Onward is another movie I want to see, looks like a fun and cute fantasy adventure. Also I love seeing commercials for it, especially with the pet dragon and the winged unicorns eating from the trash and hissing like raccoons lol.

Nice that Onward made it at no.1, and seeing The Invisible Man at no.2 now is also great. I'm going to try and see one of these two movies on Sunday, I'm leaning towards Onward since I'm in the mood for a cute fantasy.

I Still Believe looks good, so that's another movie I want to see in theater's if I can. Not interested in the other two though.
