New in Theaters June 14, 2019 "The Dead Don't Die," "Men in Black: International" and "Shaft"


The Dead Don't Die
Starring: Bill Murray and Adam Driver
Rated R   


A small town becomes a battleground as the undead begin rising from their graves.

“The Dead Don't Die” could have been the next “Shawn of the Dead,” but the film lacked energy and any comedic spark that would have given the audience their money's worth, especially with the talents of Bill Murray and Adam Driver in the lead roles.

Unlike the zombies in the film, “The Dead Don't Die” dies 30 minutes in and stays dead.

Pass it by! It gets a D and rated R.




Shaft
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson and Richard Roundtree
Rated R   


In this multi-generational action / comedy, Samuel L. Jackson plays John Shaft Jr., the son of the infamous hard-as-nails cop played by Richard Roundtree. When Shaft's son, John Shaft the 3rd's best friend is murdered, all three jump into the fray.

“Shaft” offers up a nice buffet of fast-paced 80's style action, blood pumping soundtrack and rapid fire humor to give the film its style and pace.


“Shaft” gets a B and is rated R.




Men in Black: International
Starring: Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson
Rated PG-13

When a double agent infiltrates the headquarters of 'The Men in Black,' 2 agents pull out all stops to save the planet and their jobs.

“Men in Black: International” is another in a long line of disappointing sequels relying on past successes to sell tickets.

From it's poorly conceived ping-pong plot and wooden acting to it's over produced CGI “MIB 4” will have you anything but entertained.

The film offered up a very few and scattered humorous moments but not enough to save the film from its own overindulgence.

It gets a D and is rated PG-13.
