And welcome back on the hunt well this week is never complete.
Without a box I was report from -- activities senior editor of rotten tomatoes to details about today's release of new releases -- -- -- him.
We're the -- Percy Jackson sea monsters and explains hey -- Hey Daria I'm fine.
Leasing and I've seen it.
-- what is promised for this for a very long time I about the movie was out for a while but it it actually starts today.
You've given it 66%.
It's a big budget movie Matt Damon Flint what do you think about this.
I like this for the most part.
Critics as you mentioned 66% on the three and a -- That -- 66% of the critics like it just over two thirds.
It's pretty good head this is from writer director -- long count who brought us district nine.
A few years back and this is his follow up -- It's not quite as sharp and quite as effective but -- still pretty good Matt Damon puts a great performance as a guy who as a factory worker works the factory building robots that's a lethal dose of radiation.
And -- a world where health care is pretty awful yeah the only really good health care is of the space station up in space.
The very very wealthy live and they have excellent health care got it near miraculous.
And so he wants to sneak into that area and you've been -- here.
-- the movie touches on a lot of things about the health care crisis again.
I immigration issues but it's pretty effective.
Where I would say that this isn't quite as effective -- just as district nine is that.
Matt Damon's character doesn't have quite the arc that the character we saw play by Charl spoke hopefully in district nine has but it's still pretty good fell.
Mean even even a casual understanding of the plot you know -- seems -- kind of political I mean are people gonna buy that or.
Is the action and then all the other stuff so wonderful that it's not going to really be an issue for people don't want to do with politics and movies.
You know is this the action is really good.
It's really exciting to watch.
I think that this is a movie where you're not going to be able to really ignore the politics of -- -- It's going to be harder and -- because that really is frightened senator this well.
All right well you know what's going to the next one Jennifer Aniston's new movie -- the Miller is got 40% on the edge nanometer.
I hear she's got a pretty racing scene in here.
-- she does she plays a strip.
-- who's posing as the wife to a guy.
Played by Jason Sudeikis -- a small time pot dealer who gets roped in to smuggling marijuana over the border from Mexico to the US.
And to do that he gets a group of kind of misfits to pass themselves office.
This kind of perfect middle American family.
Jennifer Aniston as we mentioned plays a stripper she looks fantastic -- -- and she does have.
A relatively racy -- he's -- although.
You know she's not ends up she ends up no less on clothes as if she was wearing -- -- so as.
I like this I think a little bit more than the critics I thought I had some good laughs -- it but.
Most of the critics say that given its cast it should be a lot cloudier and so as you mentioned it's only 40% of estimated -- He also knows a little Promos that the kid who plays the teenager is actually the kid from the third Narnia movie and I hardly recognizable to -- he grew like a foot and a half or something since the Narnia movie.
You you know he was also a great movie called -- of Rambo from about 2005.
Which is a fantastic movie -- and a friend has.
Please kids who make it make their own Rambo movie VHS here for a that's totally worth checking out.
Yeah yeah this is a good actor I'm actually thinking that he's going to be.
Pretty pretty big and in years to come also Percy Jackson.
I'm not really what this movie this is kind of a niche for our younger crowd or not.
Yeah there's series of.
Novels that are somewhat similar to Harry Potter it's about character.
Named Percy Jackson played by Logan Lerman who is the son of the Greek god Poseidon and he ends up in a schools sorts for other children and sirens of the Greek gods.
This is the second film follow through the first one where he goes on a quest to kind of save the school again it's very similar to Harry Potter.
This movie looks pretty good and action is OK I felt myself really bored of this.
-- but that being said my nine year old who's been reading these books.
Loved it and I think that the fans of these books are going to be really happy with -- but the critics aren't that wild about it only 33% on the tomato -- Okay the last one year is planes only got 24% on the tomato meter and I hear this was as closely as straight to dvd that Disney decided to release in theaters.
Yeah I I was mostly disappointed and that's what this is based in the same world of the Pixar cars movie.
But to be clear this is not a Pixar film this is Disney animation.
And that is the difference really shows this is not as beautiful as a Pixar film but I don't think the story works as well either I think it's gonna do fine with the younger -- I think it's gonna -- probably decent business this weekend but it's not quite the quality level.
But I think we can expect from.
Disney from past Disney animation.
And Pixar you know this this story about it crop dusting plane -- wants to B -- championship racer.
So story wise it's very similar to something like rocky or even Rudy.
-- but it's not nearly as good but again I think kids.
Little kids are gonna find -- -- -- -- wanted to see this week not ready also looks like we've got -- picks for the weekend thank you so much that actually found rotten tomatoes.
With his picks for this weekend's box office thank you so much.
Thank you are writing.
