Friday movie roundup: Feb. 26

Reviews! Get yer pipin’ hot reviews here! I’ll list the movies in order from most good to least good.

“The Witch” (R) A-
“Eddie the Eagle” (PG-13) B+
“Race” (PG-13) B-
“How to Be Single” (R) B-
“Touched with Fire” (R) C
“Gods of Egypt” (PG-13) D

I’ve also seen but have not yet reviewed “Risen” (it’s good – so-so as a sermon, but quite solid as a movie); “Triple 9” (utterly mediocre dirty-cop crime drama); and “Where to Invade Next” (Michael Moore gets in his own way, but it’s a cheery, optimistic movie about possible solutions to America’s problems).

On Movie B.S. with Bayer and Snider, we review “Eddie the Eagle,” “Triple 9,” and “Gods of Egypt.”

At Mental Floss, I wrote up 13 facts about “The Maltese Falcon.” I enjoy researching and writing all of these, but this one was particularly enlightening (#5 especially).

Over at my Patreon, I’m still working toward the goal of reviewing every single wide release that comes out. I’m going to add some other Milestone Goals soon, too. Thanks to everyone who’s been contributing!
