So, Thanos has been kicking ass and tacking your money or as Mantis says, “Kicking names and taking ass.” Two new movies come out this weekend but none look like they will surmount the supreme being in the universe.

Just two wide releases for this week.

Duwayne’s Pick: Life Of The Party! I am a fan of Melissa McCarthy mostly because my mom loves her and I always take her to her latest movie. This movie reminds a bit of Back to School with the late great Rodney Dangerfield. So it does have some hard shoes to fill but I think I will enjoy her spin on it.

Tim’s Pick: After seeing Avengers: Infinity War three times, I’m going to nurse a very sore throat this weekend and celebrate Ms. Cocktails and Movies later birthday with another weekend at the Ren Faire.
